    Your guide is good and simple, if you know what you're looking at. Like I said I've never rooted with a pc, but I think I might try when i get home from work today. If I run into any probs I will post them. Thanks for helping.

    If you hit a snag, just pm me. I'll try to help you through any snags. Just remember I'm the primary caregiver of a colicky three month old, so there could be delays in my replies.

    Newbie question (don't laugh)... Never rooted or flashed a phone before.

    Stage 1
    1) Reboot into recovery. Check your current recovery version. If you have CWMT or MultiBoot you will need to change it, or this WILL brick your phone. Use Flash Image GUI (or the BACKside updater if you're running BACKside - thanks Jerry, you rock!) to flash Bobzhome's recovery.


    So I held down the Home+down volume+pwr button and got the screen that said:

    Android System Recovery

    reboot system now
    apply sdcard: update.zip
    wipe data/factory reset
    wipe cache partition

    I guess I didn't understand the instructions on line 1?
    Is there something that I missing in the recover?

    it would appear you only have stock recovery. you can just put the update.zip from virgin mobile on your sdcard boot to recovery wipe data/factory reset and then apply sdcard:update.zip.

    brotherswing, i've extracted the stock zv9 recovery here if you'd like to use it in your instructions instead of flashing the update.zip twice

    Oh, yes please! I'm gonna make a couple of changes anyway, and that's a far more elegant method!

    Same here. When I rebooted the first time, it stuck on the ANDROID screen. That was documented, I followed the instructions to pull battery and reboot, worked fine.
    Latest build of BACKside running fine, no problems with WiFi, GPS or accelerometers.
    Many thanks for that clear bit of documentation. Very well done.

    On my PC it automatically started the download, I never left the AndrodCentral page. It may work differently if you are trying to do this on your phone or some browser other than IE or Firefox.

    Brotherswing, do you know why the new baseband is not showing up anywhere in my phone? It did when I did the update but not after reroot and restore.

    The baseband information is pulled from the Rom. Mine reports "unknown" and has since about July of last year.

    There's a file buried in the system that lists it somewhere, I'm trying to remember it. JerryScript posted it in the radio update thread a couple of weeks ago.

    I just used the backsideupdater feature to check my radio version and just saw that it still says V5. Yet I flashed the new radio zip a while ago.. Are the new radios not being written or are they just still saying V5?

    The radio zip does not work. The only way to get the new radio is to flash the whole vm update from stock recovery. You flash it once from a non-touch non-multirom custom recovery. Bobzhome or iho recovery recommended. That'll give you stock rom+ stock recovery. To get the radio you need to flash once more from stock recovery.

    Or you can flash the stock recovery and use it to flash the update.zip http://www.mediafire.com/?0wmt19eivnwuezu

    That's why just flashing the radio zip isn't part of my guide.
