    Oh no.. I went and looked at the thread Kelmar posted and I am instantly confused. I have no idea how to install DK17 modems and all that. Would that even work since i'm updated to DK28? I want to do a successful root but I have no idea where to start. Any advice Kelmar?

    Currently there are no kernels other than the stock kernel that work with any of the versions of froyo. Until the source code is released, we won't see any.

    You are on DK28 already, right? If so, ignore any of the ones that say DK17. Root it using the one click method (or the rooted odin files that ACS released) then pick your ROM of choice. :)

    I fixed the problem. Turns out, I needed to run the One-Click Root again after I updated to 2.2. Root Explorer and Wireless Tethering works fine now. Thanks Kelmar!

    The modem is a file that you need to push to your phone through Odin if you decide to root and install a dk28 ROM.

    Alternatively, if you already installed the leaked update.zip and rooted AFTER doing the update.zip, you'll already have the DK28 modem.

    If you hit Menu>Settings>About Phone and scroll down to Baseband Version, the last 4 letter/numbers would be DK28.

    Quantum v2.7.0. Rather smooth I must say! First time trying Root since the mytouch 3g 2 years ago.

    Did you do the full fledged ext4 mod and kernel or just the ROM? Just curious... :)

    Root = Win :D

    True Story!!! Root = Total Win!!!

    um, I don't know! i just clicked and saved the quantum 2.7.0 zip file to the front of the sd card and some of the add ons posted there as well. I didn't mess with any kernels nor do I know about the ext4 mod. please feel free to school me on this!
    the build number says v2.7.0.dk28-ext4

    Ah, you haven't done the ext4 mod yet. It's supposed to make the phone FLY even faster.

    I'm waiting for 3.0.0 that he said will be the next major update before I make the jump. I'm only on 2.2.0 right now. My wife HATES that I flash new ROMs seemingly every other day.

    So by having an ext partition on your memory card... it makes your phone faster?

    Haha, honestly I haven't had the time to read up on it... but from what little I have read, yes (something like that).

    so the ext4 is done by using clockworkmod 3.0 as the recovery. So far it's okay. Does the Quantum rom make your GPS jumpy? I tried using maps just to see what works, and the maps location on me was jumpy at best the 5 or so minutes I used it. Also when it comes to the clockworkmod, it won't let me use any of the apps (samsung widgits/apps, hulu) that are compatible with the quantum 2.7.
