    I noticed roms such as the Th3ory collection and BioweaponX say they're built off of the .893 OTA or have a .893 base.

    Im being patient and still have .886. Can I flash roms like these without a problem?

    You can, I did. Kinda pointless tho I think because its the radio/kernel you get from the real 893 that your really after that supposedly helps

    UPDATE: I'm still sticking with .886. I flashed Eclipse 1.1 which is based on leaked .893. They didn't recommend doing that but it still ran great. I checked my phone after flashing and it said I was running .893. I didn't notice a difference other than the camera was much faster. Could have just been the rom.

    Then I decided to flash Liberty3 v2.0 Gold just to try it out. As most of you know, they base their roms only on official OTA updates. After flashing I was back to .886 and running smooth!

    Thanks to thejacked1 for giving me courage. Noobs beware, Nitroglycerin33 (Eclipse dev) doesn't recommend it.

    the 893 you saw was from the build prop. the actual kernel and radio were still 886. you have to use stock recovery and install a recover upgrade image to update the kernel and radio and so far once you do that your keeping it.
