    Question for those of you who jumped to GB from Froyo

    Hey guys,

    I know you need to flash the new radio in order for GB ROM's to work, but I'm wondering about the process.

    I know you:

    1. Download and rename to PG05IMG.zip
    2. Place on root of SD card
    3. Flash from hboot

    But what do you do from there. Since the instructions on this radio clearly say this radio will not work with Froyo ROM's, how to I then flash on a GB ROM?

    The last time I tried jumping to GB I became caught in a bad semi-brinked state and I'm a little nervous to try it again.

    Do I download a ROM to my SD card, then right after I flash the radio do I stay in recovery and then flash the ROM?

    I may be missing something very simple and apologize if this seems like a dumb question.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Other ROM's, I thought I would try Das Bamf 2.05, TH3ORYOFCANDY V3.5.1 or Gingeritis v1.0 because they seem like the GB ROM's that have been updated the most recently.

    I'm using the kernel it came with. I got an extended battery right before I flashed it, so it's hard for me to fairly judge the battery life. I'm easily getting a full day's use out of it, but again I am using the extended battery.

    You got the first part wright. After you do that go into TB roms pick one of the roms that are for MR2 leak(I did bamf remix) download the rom to your card. The boot into CW recovery backup what you are on now. Wipe data factory reset I did three times thats what they said also Davlic. Flash the Rom but dont reboot pull battery (replace) hold volume down and power buttons you will get whiute screen Bootstrap follow instructioins it will tell you to push vol up to start do it let it run it will take awhile donot stop it or pull battery you will screw up your phone when its done it will tell you reboot do it your done. I did mine this way worked first time (it has too). Then just sign in like regular. hope thius helps.

    Perfect, thanks wooddale. So I flash the radio first, then download a GB ROM and install. I will try it when I get home.
