Custom ROM/radio update question...
Ok, so I rooted with unrevoked 3 and now I'm finding that I may want to experiment with custom roms. I've been lurking in the forums for a while now and haven't been able to locate answers to a couple of questions...
I used ROM Manager to backup my current rom. Everything is cool, I see the rom files on the mem card. If I were to flash a custom rom and radio updates and then decide to return to my current rom, do I only need to reflash that backed up rom? What about the radio updates, would I need to obtain those in separate downloads or would the succeeding radio updates be ok to use?
Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks!

I was in the same boat as you....unrevoked and then deciding that I wanted to play w/custom roms, so I make this post fully understanding your situation. You can't install custom roms using unrevoked, you'll need to Simpleroot. At this point, however, if I were you, I'd wait until the rooted version of Froyo (2.2) comes out sometime this week. The custom Roms that will be developed in the future will be written based on Froyo, so Eclair will pretty much be obsolete, and you will have spent your time doing this, and then having to do it again very shortly.

You will be able to flash Roms with Unrevoked 3...
Just download the Rom you want and place is on your SDCard...
Make a Back up *which if later you decide the Rom isnt for you just restore*
Flash the Rom using Rom Manager or just get into Recovery... Eitherway works...
Radios are just as easy to flash...
Just get into Recovery
Go to install .zip from SD
**Note you can only install one Radio at a time**
Select the Radio flash and Reboot... Then Repeat for Wimax Radio...
**BACKUPS ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP IN THIS WHOLE THING**
