    so ive been reading posts on ppl wanting to update and having problems id like to share how i did it...so basically all i did was i flashed lootas http://dl.dropbox.com/u/43332762/Boost_stock_no_root_no_cwm.zip then i reinstalled cwm because with lootas rom it removes cwm...then after was installed and rebooted phone i allowed the ota update...i did so to get the ff27 baseband...after that i flashed chevanlol360s rom found in NEW!! Boost FF27 Update Rooted Final Ver{8/1/12} - Android Forums all this i had the ff27 baseband and the update to ff27 then of course i made a backup of it...if u do decide to follow what i did dont forget to thank loota and chevanlol 360 for there hard work

    Just remember do this at your own risk worked for me but may not work for you



    edit: also thanks to mavericat for cwm

    Are you sure the baseband updated to ff27 . I didn't know that was an available update. Are you sure it's not fc29. Baseband?

    i flashed lootas stock no root no cwm, let the OTA go through, then i used mavs cwm odin install, while still in recovery before reboot, i then flashed badsectors tu_root file that i previously put on my sd card, and last but not least i rebooted. after GB booted up all the way i installed supersu and busybox.


    THANK YOU to MAV & BADSECTOR for supplying the files and instructions to do stuff like this. these guys are awesome.
    p.s. there are more awesome people like them that i failed to mention, but they know who they are.

    THANKS TO ALL DEVELOPERS:smokingsomb::smokingsomb::smokingsomb::smokingsomb::smokingsomb::smokingsomb:YA MAN

    Is there any way that I could do this if I already used Chev's FF27 update? I mean if i flash your stock rom Loota, would I still get the OTA update? Thanks in Advance.

    Right now im testing stuff for katracho at ultra rom while he's waiting for his phone to come back from samsung. Also on the new update. I will ask him if he can include the new baseband in his new and upcoming update. Can't wait. I'm having fun testing for him.:smokingsomb:

    I used the method posted here at top of thread, used Loota's Stock rom that removes CWM, then I let phone update OTA, after that I used Chev's FF27 with root Final!!! update. The bad part was I lost WiFi and 3G like the first 2.3.6 update. At this point I restored a Transform Prime backup, after a few days decided to try again and all I did was wipe cache partition and Dalvik cache, reflashed Chev's FF27 with root Final!!! and restored permissions. Now I have a completely updated phone!!! I have the 2.3.6 with the new FF27 baseband, gingerbread FF27 and PRL 61009 with the new CWM that has the 2 minute bug fixed!

    Only thing I need now is a nice Rom to slip over it. :)
    P.S. Forgot to mention that this fixed the WiFi/ 3G bug I had.
    P.S.S. Want to say Thanks to Loota! He told me to reflash Chev's FF27 to see if it was just a bad Install and helped me with the CWM as I couldn't convincw it to stick at first.

    Thanks Loota for the help!!!
    Thanks Chev, Mav, Badsector and anyone else that helped put this all together!!!
    Also Thanks to dmcjr22 for putting these instructions together that helped me do this!!!
