I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 running Cyanogenmod 10.1.3 which equates to Android 4.2.2.

I would like to know if my phone will support DC-HSDPA or not? Will it just work?

Is there anything I would need to do in order for it to support DC-HSDPA like upgrade the RIL or is it just not capable at the hardware level?

  • I don't think it would be a problem.

After some testing over the weekend with a service provider who provides DC-HSDPA I can confirm that the Samsung Galaxy S2 does not support the protocol.


I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 and using the Dutch T-Mobile NL network. When I open the app "Network Signal Info" it shows (DC)HSPA+ and the networksymbol shows H+, so it looks like that this phone supports dual channel HSPA+.


They say on the site that it does not support 4G or the faster DC-HSDPA. Having an S2 myself, it would be great if we get a hack for it with the the cfw. Just gotta have hope.

  • Sorry, but what is cfw?
