    Does doing a clean wipe for a ROM install erase any previous radio / wimax updates?

    I switched from Fresh 1.0 to Backed Snack but did a radio and wimax updates with Fresh. Should I re-apply those updates after flashing the Baked Snack ROM or are they still updated from the Fresh 1.0 ROM?

    Well, I belive you are posting about the Evo in the Hero forum. However, I believe that the radio sticks with the phone even if you change the ROM.

    What? Talk of fancy wi-max radios in the Hero forum, kind of jealous. I know my radio has stuck through 4 different ROMs on my Hero, so I assume it would be the same on the Evo. If it doesn't stick just re-flash the radio though.

    The only way to change a radio update is to do another radio update. Nothing in the recovery menu, including wiping, has any effect on the radio version.

    Thanks for all the info guys.

    Sorry about the wrong forum thing. I did a search and was jumping around from the posts and didn't even realize I was in the Hero section.

    And I may have the WiMax radio, but still no 4G in LA yet.

    Don't worry, im sure your extra 10 will get you 4g coverage soon enough.

    Yeah...I'm glad I've been paying that since it's been released.

    I did randomly find 4G on a corner in Hollywood...I forgot I had 4G on and the icon showed up. I did a quick speed test and it did register as 3 MB down / 1 MB up.
