    Im having an issue and havent came across it on here or google so I dont know if its a rare bug, but I go to check for new update and it pops up that the newest version is 1.70.605 rather than the GB version that is 2.11.605 that is avaiable OTA.

    I have done the 1x trick and just 3G and 4G and come back the same. Do I need to have the OTA that was available before GB to upgrade to new OS? In other words am I not allowed to skip updates?

    Any help or link to answer my questions would be greatly appreciated!

    Do not install the OTA update if you are rooted. If you want the new gingerbread update you have to download the rom and install it manually. The same goes for the radio.

    to minimize data loss... I use my root backup to backup my apps and apps data. I also download sms backup and restore to save my text messages. This just leaves e-mail to restore when sign back in (automatic) call logs are lost, but thats about it. You will need to rearrange your widgets as well.

    The ROMS you flash through a custom recovery (CWM/TeamWIN/ArmonRA) and then you flash the radio using the bootloaded (placing the file on the sdcard so it is not in any folder also known as the root of the sd card. Boot into bootloader by powering off, power on while holding down volume down and selecting bootloader rom the menu)
    Roms can be named whatever, but radios have to have the nomenclature of PG50IMG.zip

    If you head on over to the root section the threads there can explain the process way better than I can. Usually, you will have to wipe data for a clean install. There are apps like titanium back up to help back up your apps for a smooth transition. Good luck. Just take the time to read. If you are rooted then you can install roms and radios. :-)

    Or

    [GB][2.11.605.3]Debloat, Stock, Rooted (boring)

    You will need to flash the radios as well: MR3 GB radio from 2.11.605.3, 1.48.00.906w_1, 0.01.78.0906w_2 Multiupload.com - upload your files to multiple file hosting sites! MD5: CB2ABFCBF83F1680AFB7178558AFB6D0

    Doesn't matter. Check out these guides in addition to Cyber Warrior's, and you should be more than well on your way:

    Check my signature for a how-to on backing up and restoring apps/data during a ROM install.

    Check the stickies in the Rooting subforum for how-to's on actuallly installing ROMs if you need it.

    If you want to run the stock GB update, download and install this:
    [GB][2.11.605.3]Debloat, Stock, Rooted

    If you want to run a much better GB ROM based off of this OS version, download and install this:
    [GB][2.11.605.0][Sense3.0]BAMF Forever 1.0.6

    Unfortunately, if you're still running 1.12.605.6, you will also need to update your radio as well (I suggest doing this after you've backed all of your stuff up, but before you install the new ROM).
    Radios!!
    Any radio greater than MR2 will work, the last one listed is the latest radio included with the GB OTA (so that's probably the one you want).

    EDIT: Sorry Nate, I completely missed the second page of this thread, and realized you pretty much already posted all the same info I have here. Cheers.
