    If it says unknown now then that's normal. And you can check /sys/devices/system/soc/soc0/build_id open it as text

    It means the flash didn't take.

    That's strange.. I never have a problem flashing stock recovery then the update... Then re-root and restore... And I've been playing with sprint radios and using the update as a way back... Not sure why it didn't work the first time but I'd try it again if you really want the new radio. Honestly tho unless your signal is weak and you really need it its probably best to hold off until the reboot issues on iho are solved with the new radio

    Well I went back, reflashed the update, rebooted, flashed the update again, updated the software, flashed custom recovery, flashed backside iho and everything is up to date. I'm running backside and it says the version is ZV9! I guess doing it twice did the trick.

    It's not quite sorted out yet... Suspect the new radio is not playing nicely with the iho kernel

    Only seems to affect iho Roms. It happens infrequently enough that I just live with it. It's only hit me four times in about a month, and I just can't give up BACKside.

    Good! I might re-do the process myself, I've been averaging about one reboot a week since I did this and while it is infrequent, I'd rather not have any reboots at all!

    13) Reboot into recovery.
    14) Go to Backup and Restore, choose Restore. Pick your latest backup.
    15) Reboot. Done!
    At these steps should this be Android System Recover (3e)?
    It seems to only reference an update.zip and you cannot choose your own as the Tips/notes seem to suggest?
    Do I need to use Flash GUI again to load Bobzhome's recovery?

    I am all the way done through step 12) all worked well and running ZV9, and now I want do one of the following, but the recovery mode (Showing as Android Recovery System 3e) looked different, so wanted to double check:
    If you want the stock rom with root access, skip step 14. Instead, choose install zip from sd card, and flash jcase's modified SuperUser zip package. Reboot. Done!
    If you want a clean start (like I did) skip step 14. Instead, choose install zip from sd card, and flash your favorite rom (and gapps if necessary.) Reboot. Done!

    So I am no longer seeing a install zip from sd card option in the Android Recovery System.... not sure how the Bobzhome recovery version disappeared, unless it should during this process.

    So should I root the phone at this point again? I can't seem to with GingerBreak any more

    Re run the Gordita file, you don't have the correct recovery. Gingerbreak won't work after this update, that's part of what Gordita does for you. Did you get any error messages?

    Does any one have a working link to the ZV9 update?

    It's in the OP. Unless VM pulled it. I had linked directly to the file on their servers.

    Have you tried using the link lately? It goes to virgin mobile's page to buy a Triumph.

    Yeah, wouldn't have posted if it had worked... Just saying

    Excellent thanks brotherswing, doing that step again did the trick. Did it line by line to double check.
    Thanks!

    The sleep 10 command does result in a unrecognized command....

    Sleep is not a standard windows batch command - though lots of people have sleep.exe files installed separately. I never checked if it was added in vista or win7, but I'm 99% sure it wasn't in xp, even with command extensions enabled.

    Edit: @brotherswing: you could add a sleep.exe to your zip (just downloaded it and didn't see one). Or maybe just a pause command instead and have the user hit enter. I know... but they never awarded Oscars for the most elegant windows/DOS batch file anyway

    Edit2: Another comment on the guide (now that I got to read it more carefully ;-) Regarding the need to pull battery on the first boot (mentioned in step 5), I believe you can avoid that by factory wiping (in recovery, of couse) before the first run of update.zip.

    Ok this is strange, I spoke to soon.
    I rebooted once and entered Recovery just found, but restarted once more and now I am back to the old Recovery 3e.

    Any thoughts?

    If you don't flash jcase rooted.Zip the stock rom will automatically flash stock recovery back to the phone

    I am sorry, I should have been clearer: My response was really for brotherswing regarding the use of Sleep in his BAT file. I quoted you because your post alerted me to the fact that there even was a sleep command.

    I saw what thewraith wrote -- I didn't realize that the new stock ROM will flash stock recovery again, thus overwriting your custom recovery. That would explain your problem: First time you're booted into Bobzhome recovery, the root you have is only temporary, and you MUST either (1) flash "jcase rootme.zip" (to maintain stock root) OR (2) flash your favorite custom ROM (for a fresh install) OR (3) restore a nandroid.

    Start from Stage 2 of brotherswing's guide and follow it to the dot -- and you should be good.

    Scroll down to resources, Click on " ? Software Update (VM670ZV9) "
    I believe they disabled direct linking to increase traffic on their website.

    Followed guide and worked fine. Gordita.bat ran while I rebooted the phone and installed just before the start up screen.
