    Default Why? Because it is there

    Maybe I am a bit odd, but this has always been one of my favourite jailbreak tweaks. I love the way it accesses hidden APIs to extract a wealth of data directly from the Broadcom cell radio chip. I am so glad it is back and running again, however imperfectly. It is a triumph of mining data from the very hidden depths of the iPhone. Recall Sir Edmund Hillary's answer to "Why did you climb Mt Everest?". Because it is there. Why do I want detailed detailed RF signal data from the guts of my phone? Because it is there. Cheers.

    Since the release, it was updated 3 or 4 times already. And yet still inaccurate. It can't locate the right location of the tower which means the measurements are wrong. For me this app is a dummy. No purpose at all!

    Four bucks is expensive? You spend more at McDonald's for a combo...

    This program cannot be launched from iOS 5.0.1. If it is called from terminal, to find any linkage error, it will generate such output from stderr:
    $ /Applications/Signal.app/Signal
    dyld: Symbol not found: _kCTCellMonitorEcioFiltered
    Referenced from: /Applications/Signal.app/Signal
    Expected in: /System/Library/Frameworks/CoreTelephony.framework/CoreTelephony
    in /Applications/Signal.app/Signal
    Trace/BPT trap: 5
    Besides, though it seems that there are no linkage error with iOS 6, this program cannot be launched when my global iPad Mini is working with a cdma UIM card.

    Hello.

    Im a RF engineer, the displayed information its really useful, but in UMTS band the CID is some confusing, its displayed in a nine digits format, on all RF tool we manage, the CID is in five digits format. For example: Cell ID 33974, in your app it is displayed as Cell ID 170558646.
    To convert it to five digits just:
    -Take 9 digits CID and convert it to HEX: 170558646 --> A2A84B6
    -Finally take the last four digits and convert it back to decimal: 84B6 --> 33974

    Id really appreciate, to take this in consideration.

    Best regards.

    As an RF Eng'r, where you able to verify if the location of the sites are correct?
