    From what I've read, you have to change the radio. I had skyraider 2.5 w/o radio change and the gps didn't work. After a radio change all is well.

    Probably pretty close to how you loaded Frankenrom (which I am also running). You will need to go S-OFF with unrevoked forever, then flash the zip of the new radio in clockwork mod. I'd find links for these things but I'm at work with limited time to screw around. Be aware that unrevoked forever is truly not reversible at this time. Other than that its really painless. I am running Frankenrom B6, the 2.15 radio, and Kings#3 kernel, everything works fine so far as I can tell.

    so 2.15 radio is what you recommend? Unrevoked forever contains this radio with it? Is it safe to add when you already have a Rom?

    2.15 radio is not included with unrEVOked forever, you'll have to snatch that elsewhere. I've only been rooted for about a week, but I have no problem with 2.15, I have never used 2.05. I read (on these forums) that it was generally prefered over 2.05.

    You have to:

    1. Do UnrEVOked forever. public:forever [RootWiki]
    2. Make sure sdcard has been formatted as FAT32 file system (I loaded mine directly on my PC, took everything off, formatted, then put everything back on it)
    3. Put the radio file in the root of the sdcard (make sure the filename is PB31IMG.zip)
    4. Shutdown and boot up to HBOOT, it should then see the file and offer to install the radio. Accept..Install..Then you reboot.

    It is a type of file system. If you format the sdcard on a PC it will give FAT32 as an option.
