I was unable to find rom.zip. i ran utility and it failed at the end and had cool little exclamation triangles on all four corners of the screen. Ran it again and it took. Rebooted the phone and checked it out. All the AT&T apps were still there
I loaded scottsroms cleanRom2.5. That was nice because it lets you pick what apps you want or not. Rebooted did the CWM helium restore and it's all better. Thanks again for your help. BTW not sure if its related but the cleanRom is based on RUU build 12. Not sure if in phone info it says that because I flashed build 12 or if his rom is built on build 12?
