Joseph Brown, who has released a T-Mobile, AT&T, and Verizon Carrier hack, has now released a Sprint carrier update that a could improve your network speeds on your iPhone 5.

This hack enables 1x Advanced and EVDO Rev. B on the iPhone 5 enhancing EVDO 3G data speeds. Note that LTE data speeds remain untouched and users will not notice any difference with signal strength.

This hack enables 1x Advanced and EVDO Rev. B on the iPhone 5 enhancing EVDO 3G data speeds. Though Sprint is limited to EVDO Rev. A, the device itself becomes more open to an increased amount of bandwidth thus allowing for better throughput of data and data connection. Already intact coding within the carrier files also showed signs that Sprint has 1x Advanced support on their network. So, how knows? This may actually enable something new. Throttling code was put in place to limit users to a certain amount of bandwidth on 3G only as well and has now been removed. As for LTE, no throttling codes were put in place to limit users' bandwidth nor was any band preference coding put into place to limit users on coverage. This won't increase signal so don't expect it to like the AT&T version of this hack nor does it increase LTE as it was not limited in the first place.


Instructions on how to install the update can be found at the link below...

I use sprint, I had AT&T and they sucked for calling and SMS, i couldnt make a call with verizon, sprint I have had excellent service for calling and SMS, 3G data speeds in my area average 1.5mbps down and .5mbps up which isnt bad or good. LTE i can get about 15 down 9 up.
