    Hey guys,

    The last time I tried to install a GB ROM, I noticed that the instructions said to immediately go into HBOOT after installing the rom through clockwork, but to make sure that I remove the battery when flashing the radio...

    My question is why is this important, only because I never see an explanation tied to this instruction, and I am quite new to the android community since the TB is my first android phone.

    Thanks in advance!

    You don't remove it while you flash it. You flash the Rom in clockworkand once that is finished you pull the battery, then boot into hboot to flash the radio.

    You dont have to pull battery... Flash radio in hboot, reboot, you wont have service for a minute, who cares, boot into cwr, flash gb, done

    Ok, so this is the problem that I encountered. Hopefully, someone can tell me why my phone stopped working because of this too lol. I went through CWR and had it do the wipe date and dalvik and had it install das bamf gb remix, after the install completed I downloaded the new radio PG015IMG.zip and flashed the new radio from HBOOT. After that I rebooted the phone and got an image of my phone with an exclamation point in a red triangle. AFter I saw that the phone resumed booting normally and everything was well. A little later on my phone shut itself down and wouldn't turn on correctly. I had to take my gfs old blackberry and use that to put my recovery image back on my sd card and go all the way back to stock [​IMG] since this happened I haven't tried to do another GB install in fear of having to go through this all over again. Can someone tell me if I screwed something up, because I feel like I followed all the directions just in a different order according to some here on the forum, and I would really like to step up to GB already.

    Thanks in advance everyone!

    the new bamf sense 3.0 rom is super stable, so is the mr2 radio... And im always nervous like you. If your afraid of gingerbread (dont be), give the bamf 1.7 froyo rom a shot, that runs perfect, no issues.
