    Has anyone tried and or had any success with using the EC09 Radio with any of the Froyo ROMS/Kernels?
    I ODINed the EC09 Radio and flash the Nameless ROM but the didn't like the performance. The Quadrant benchmark is actually much slower.
    I read on XDA some peeps were able to user the EC09 Radio with Rom Com and got good results, apparently EC09 Radio gets better GPS and stronger Bars

    Vinnie, can you post a link to the actual froyo rom that works with EC09? I've tried 3 or 4 and they all don;t work. Commrom 2.1 seems to be an patch to 2.0 so you need 2.0 first I would assume. But which 2.1? With or with Kernel?

    Installing Com Rom
    1. download rom version of your choice
    2. move to your sdcard
    3. boot into cwr (3.0 preferred..should work with 2.5 but edify scripts can be nasty with it sometimes..testers say it worked though)
    4. wipe data/cache/davlik cache (if you dont, expect issues...and also dont bother bug reporting..we wont help you!)
    5. select install from sdcard
    6. select rom .zip
    7. reboot
    8. wait 5+ minutes for phone to boot up (it takes awhile)
    9. profit (or not if it bootloops)

    Flash this first
    UKB 2.0 with OTB 1.5 Voodoo Kernel
    md5: 5118f303b7b32c080c1a7331ca34b936

    Fully reboot......

    Then flash this (2.1 PATCH DOES NOT INCLUDE KERNEL IT KEEPS SAME 1.5 VOODOO OTB FROM 2.0)
    Com Rom (froyo) 2.1 (patch, must flash on top of 2.0, no need to wipe): http://www.multiupload.com/7Q8BWG8NWN
    md5: 725f94fa1cad7e562a767cd61ecd590b

    With that you will be running latest comm. rom with 1.5 OTB kernel

    OR

    Full Roms (no kernel)
    UKB 2.0
    md5: 6e982ed5c98f25383fc80ce1fd48bc6d

    and then in same recovery session flash this kernel

    OTB-Reloaded TouchWiz ver 1.6 - This will probably be final froyo tw kernel released by me unless there is a big problem that needs to be fixed with this kernel. Known issue if you try to wipe data in recovery it will hang on trying to format .android_secure requiring battery pull. Wipe completes, but issue is a problem for you odin different recovery.

    Then fully reboot and then back to recovery to flash 2.1 patch which includes no kernel so you will remain with 1.6 OTB you just flashed previously

    Com Rom (froyo) 2.1 (patch, must flash on top of 2.0, no need to wipe): http://www.multiupload.com/7Q8BWG8NWN
    md5: 725f94fa1cad7e562a767cd61ecd590b



    Any question please ask!

    And if your not already running EC09 modem just odin it!

    I personally see no diff. between ED04 and EC09

    Thanks Vinnie, but that doesn't work.

    I had to ODIN the ROMM.COM 2.0 with "CR20_NOMODEM_NUTS_SHARK.tar"
    and now it works and I get none of the force closes with Movies or Yelp.
    According to the About Phone settings I still have the EC09 Radio. I will admit the EC09 Radio greatly improves my GPS.
