    As a new zio owner im wondering, do the rom designers on this site do roms for every phone?
    Or do we have to wait till a designer who own a zio designs something. Boy i wish I was geek enough to design one.

    i think there has to be a leaked version that developers can use to create a rom

    I'm hoping for the bloatware to be removed and upgrades from donut.

    That looks more like a file system dump, than a leaked ROM. Still, good stuff to have.

    rooting is easy... custom roms is the thing somebody has to leak a 2.1 version that kyocera may be working on if at all.. athis point i doubt they are.. they are so wishy washy about supporting their phones imho

    We're trying to get a custom ROM here:
    Kyocera Zio M6000 - on Cricket, Android 1.6 - xda-developers

    I'm looking for someone to give me a copy of the Sprint ROM.

    There's some info on what do do here:
    My Brain Hurts: Porting Clockwork Recovery to New Devices

    The pre-cursor steps are here:
    Compile CyanogenMod for Hero CDMA - CyanogenMod Wiki
    That's for the a Hero, but if you compare the steps for all the different phones, they are nearly identical aside from the phone name.

    Basically the Cricket Zio 1.6 needs to be pulled, then the Sprint Zio 2.1 needs to be pulled. Then you need to compare the vendor setup files, move the required Cricket info over to the Sprint files, and then we'll have a custom ROM.

    Simple, yeah? :D

    Hmm, actually, besides that, there could be radio issues. I'm not familiar with that so someone who has more experience needs to answer this.

    Even if we get the Sprint ROM and move the settings over, would the radio still be an issue? The radio is stored somewhere else, so when uploading a new rom, only the kernel and system files are replaced, the kernel stays the same. So the new rom would still have the old cricket radio, would that be bad?
    Does the radio only store hw communication info, or does it tell it to use specific towers? Or is the towers part only the PRL?

    The "baseband version" on my Cricket Zio 1.6 is "1.0.24l"

    What is it on the sprint phones?
