Sorry if this has been asked before. I tried searching but there is so much talk all around these forums about rom's/kernels and such it makes it a pain to find anything. Anyway, on to my question. I finally decided to root my phone last night, and I'm assuming now that I have SPRecovery installed all I need to do to install a rom is wipe/download the rom and kernel, rename to update.zip and install them through the boot screen. Please correct me if I'm wrong there. Anyway, to my actual question. After updating a rom, do you have to *228 and activate/update prl? I'm thinking of installing bugless beast but if you have to *228 again I'll have to choose an opportune time since I have to drive about 20 miles to get in an area that will let me (I roam off USCC at home). I'm assuming if all your SID/NAM info is wiped out I could still set the phone up manually, however I have yet to find a place where I can update my prl manually?
