    Can someone explain what Radio's do? I know they connect you to Verizon but that is about it.

    I am on CM7 nightly, what is the best radio?

    Also could someone explain why when i update nightly from build say 29 to 30. It still remembers my wifi pass and stuff even though i checked wipe phone and cache?

    Anything wrong with still having the 2.05 radio? I feel like most people nowadays have the 2.15.

    ......swing and a miss.

    Easiest way to tell from what I can see for the radio version is to go into the bootloader (Power+Vol Down) and it's listed there along with HBOOT and S-OFF and such.

    Flashing the radio is supposed to improve call quality and such, but I've never really noticed. But I've tried to avoid bothering with it unless a ROM requires it since flashing stuff like radio and hboot tends to be a little dangerous if something goes wrong.

    Haha... that's a good one... well deserved. I thought, well, it's obvious WHAT I thought I guess... apparently you're talking about basebands or something like that. SORRY! :D
  8. Radio controls the power, voice/data signal, strength, wifi, gps, bluetooth along with vairous security functions such as cid and security. If you don't know what you are doing then leave it alone as flashing wrong will result in brick of the device and when I say brick I mean real brick where you can't even turn on the device as only way to get it working is via manfully flashing the software though jTag.
