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.

Re: [Guide] How to flash the ZV9 update, for the technically chal13) Reboot into recovery.
14) Go to Backup and Restore, choose Restore. Pick your latest backup.
15) Reboot. Done!
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

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.

Re: [Guide] How to flash the ZV9 update, for the technically chal
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.
