It’s always exciting when the development of one devices causes positive change in the development of a different device. Sometimes rooting a device means getting new software to older phones, as is the case with the Sony Xperia Line Up, and it’ll happen with even more phones in the future.
This is now happening for the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II. XDA Forum Member johnrbell has just announced that the Galaxy Blaze has been rooted. While the Blaze isn’t the most popular phone out there, there will be some users happy to hear that and awaiting the method to be made public for future use.
However, the meat and potatoes of rooting the Galaxy Blaze, for most users anyway, is the radio. XDA Recognized Developer Master&Slave™ has pulled and posted the radio from the Galaxy Blaze, which has been a long awaited development for T-Mobile Galaxy S II owners. In his words:
-My Data has increased by about 4Mbps, which is a + in my case
-Dont ask me for screenshots
-Tested after removing my build.prop and init.d data tweaks for true results.
-Speeds will vary depending on your location.
Users looking to get a new modem on their already rocking SGS2 can head on over to Master&Slave™’s modem thread for the downloads and discussions about the modem. Currently, the modem is being tested without ROM tweaks to see the true benefits, but with a 4 Mbit increase in speed, results look promising. Before flashing, be sure that you have a real T-Mo SGS2 modem handy in case something goes wrong that you can revert to._________
