    Should I flash Ese53 .sbf first?

    Or more accurately, should I have flashed the Ese53 .sbf before I flashed Pete's Bugless v5? I haven't had any problems so far, temps seem normal, I was getting occasional FCs at first, but that went away after a reboot. My concern is if we are going to continue with 2.1 ROMs and let the 2.01 ROMs fall by the wayside, would it be better to start with the new base or is it OK to keep things the way I have them now?

    I could be wrong here, but I seem to remember reading if you flash that file, you will no longer have root. No root, no recovery, just the stock setup. I'd stick to the ROMs,

    I believe he's correct, the sbf file is what Verizon Tech uses to unbrick a phone

    I found a link on Alldroid of a guy who posted his nandroid backup of ESE53 plus root and busybox. I am tempted to use it, but my understanding of what exactly nandroid backs up is limited at best. Would it back up the files affected by flashing ESE53, or just the system, data and boot files from the ROM? I was just wondering if anyone out there has tried this?

    As a rule, you shouldnt have to touch the SBF but in the very extreme cases. Most 'bricks' can be undone using SPRecovery.

    The SBF is great, but you run the risk of totaling your phone. It's the last resort.

    The sbf is also the only way to install a Radio or bootloader update as well.

    Note: There are rumors that ese53 increases call quality. Don't shoot the messenger, just passing on what I heard.

    As for the posts about losing root, thats only half true. Root is still alive and well, via adb. At least, it is on the 2.1 SBFs.

    Curious: Are the ESE53 and the ERE25 .sbf files all OCed?
    I had a nice signature, but the mean ate it.

    There is a member setting them up that way, but generally speaking, no, they are bone stock.

    I'm hoping I have the .sbf files that are bone stock, as you say. I wouldn't want to accidentally have a 'return to stock actually OCed file', lol.
