Another question is is it possible to brick by just trying to flash a rom through clockwork recovery? Coming from the Droid 1 I don't think it should be, but who knows.
If one of the ROMS I want to install says it requires hboot .92 how do I go about changing my hboot because this one says it is version 0.79.
Thanks a lot for any help!!
re: S-OFF, Yes.
re: bricking...I will not say it is impossible to brick that way but generally speaking, if your phone comes on and at least boots into Hboot, you can fix whatever goes wrong. I can see scenarios where the phone might boot up to some degree but still be physically malfunctioning but if that does happen it normally doesn't have anything to do with flashing roms.
Here is a link to the radio firmware: .92 Radio
You put the PB31IMG.zip file on the root of your sdcard. Boot into Hboot, it should ask if you want to install the file...make the "yes" response.
Important: Make sure you have a custom recovery backup because you will
need to do a nandroid restore after installing this because it overwrites part of the boot portion of your rom. Until you do the restore, you will only be able to boot into Hboot.
