GetRIL shows the device's current RIL (Radio Interface Layer) and baseband, notifying you if they match or not. If not - and you're on a rooted device - you'll be able to download and install a new matching RIL.

• Recommends a baseband based on the device's RIL version

NOTE: some of these devices has preliminary support, meaning that these devices needs more, confirmed, data.


If you accidentally install a faulty RIL you can safely restore a backup of your previous RIL, which is automatically backed up.

There's also the ability to keep the current RIL after a ROM flash. This feature only work on CyanogenMod based ROMs.


I'll try to keep the app up-to-date when new RILs and basebands get released. Have any information to share with me? Please send me an e-mail.

Need help? Don't hesitate to contact me, but first off - go see the help section within the app.

DISCLAIMER: I don't take liability for any damage your phone might sustain, while/after using this app.

NOTE: if you're recieving "unsupported device" messages it's not on me to blame. I'm sad to see all the negative feedback and ratings I've been getting recently because of this.
The main issue if you're on a supported device, but recieves this message is because either your carrier or ROM developer have changed some values within a file (build.prop). With this release of GetRIL I've made some changes so that I can add your devices as "supported" devices either way... with one caveat: I'll have to do this manually.

    Have had no 3g signal for a month. RIL/baseband was mismatched. This app recommended and downloaded correct RIL. perfect 3g now. Thanks.

    I would pay if you had support for the AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note 2 i317.

    I had some problems with an empty APN list on my Galaxy Nexus (maguro yakju) that could not be populated. XDA gave me a reference to GetRIL and it helped indeed. After I changed my ROM the old RIL/Baseband was still on the phone and was the origin of the trouble. After installing the suggested ones, it works like a charm!
