    I feel like this whole experience will be a useful "would you jump of the bridge if everyone else did?" experience... I still haven't flashed it and I don't know if I ever want to now.
    But... But... SHINY!!!!!


    I would have never blamed you if something happened to my phone because of my need to have something shinny and new. Well say that the radio does help with 3g in my area. And on the note of the Touch Recovery I may go back because my camera button is a little wonky, it works but iwonky.
    Thanks.
    And in reality, if the recovery bonks your rom, at least that is easily dealt with. In your case especially, I can understand going back to it, and at some point it would be great to have a good working touch recovery.

    I said it in the early ICS builds, people were not understanding the risks involved in playing with this stuff and many still don't.

    Yes and no. The touch recovery is CWM, they are all CWM. It works with Bobzhome's recovery from what I've read. Don't trust me though, read for yourself.

    Simple answer? Yes.
    Personally, I would put Bobzhome on and forget the rest.

    CWM is very unspecific, and as mentioned covers a lot of recoveries, some good, some absolutely f'ing awful.

    Put Bobzhome and you will never have to mess with recovery again for a long time.

    You shouldn't be using Rom manager at ALL.

    I highlighted the important part.
    If you like your phone, get rid of that program.

    To the people that bricked there phone hold POWER + VOL DOWN + CAMERA + SEARCH, and it goes into emergency mode. Then use kdz to flash the zv8 firmware and it will revert your radio. Then make sure to root and flash the virgin recovery, rom and other files.

    A good read

    Bobzhome and VM670MH are the same.

    People may think it to be dumb to go back to the Touch Recovery, but I did. It works well, have new had a problem and besides the camera button on my V is kind of weird.

    Yeah, for me this radio update didn't really do much - same speeds, same voice quality.. just a moral side of it is I have the latest and the greatest...

    I have been sitting here reading this thinking ?stupid people, why even try this?" And as I'm thinking it I subconsciously download and flashed the radio my self. Curiosity took over and just made me do it. No difference at all for me. Still 1 bar, still 750 mps speed test ( its only that high because I'm past peak hours) oh well
