    Default Post Rooting Questions

    I recently rooted and am running cyanogen and had some followup questions.

    - If I want to play around with some other ROMs, I take it I should do a nandroid backup and Titanium backup? Possibly copy those to my PC? Is that sufficient? I had issues when I first rooted which resulted in a temporarily bricked phone. I'm fine with that as long as I can get it back with some work.

    - I am now seeing stuff about flashing the radio. How do I know if I have the correct radio?

    - I assume upgrading to a newer version of cyanogen will basically be flashing the new ROM?

    Any input is appreciated.

    On a side note, I am enjoying cyanogen. Runs well and even though I didn't give the FPS issue much attention, I can notice the improvement.

    That is very sufficient! I like to have apps backed up on my PC so I can push through ADB if needed. REGAW on XDA has an app that will allow you to make a FLASHABLE ZIP of all of your apps as well!

    There is the BASEBAND and WIMAX - for Baseband you go to:
    Menu>Settings>About Phone>SoftwareInfo - Latest Baseband is 2.1500.09.01

    WIMAX - If you have terminal emulator:
    CODE: - only enter BOLD
    su (ENTER)-you should now have #
    wimax_mtd (ENTER) this will give you your wimax version in the first few lines of info generated in the terminal. Look for this:
    "Check Firmware Version (4.62.2v26023_) - Latest is the 26023

    Double check the CYANOGEN thread at xda or the cyanogen site for info on updating their ROM. Usually if only upgrading a ROM you are already using on your phone you will not have to fully WIPE - Usually only wipe CACHE and DALVIK CACHE. If trying a new ROM a FULL WIPE is required.

    HAVE FUN!

    Default Radios!!!

    Here is the link to the RADIO thread at XDA!

    READ AND PERFORM A NANDROID BEFORE FLASHING ANYTHING!!!

    Some people have been known to bork their 4gees when flashing new wimax.

    If anything goes wrong there are threads on how to fix!
