    I know everyone is going crazy with the new unrEVOked Forever s-off tool. However, I have decided to hold off for the moment as they have indicated that there is currently no way to undo this hack in the event that you need warranty service on the phone.

    With that said, I would still like to run the latest 2.15 radio and a custom ROM. I assume this is possible as others have upgraded the stock 1.x radio to a 2.2 radio before unrEVOked Forever was released. Can anyone who has upgraded to 2.15 without using unrEVOked Forever provide instructions? If something already exists, I would greatly appreciate it if someone pointed me in the right direction.

    For what it's worth. I am currently running:

    • Stock 2.1 Sense ROM
    • Baseband
    • Rooted using unrEVOked 3.1 Recovery Reflash Tool
    • ClockworkMod Recovery
    Thanks in advance to anyone who can help!

    No.. The 2.15 radio was a part of an unsigned "leak". In order to flash a radio without S-Off, you must have a signed package. The earlier 2.x radio was a part of a signed leaked "OTA" release that did a patch to the radio to bring it up to 2.x (that's why it would brick if you did it twice).
