    I've only tried BAMF 1.6.3 but I'm loving it and I'm sure most others here will say it's a great rom.

    I am very confused. I flashed the radio that was leaked a few weeks ago to get Baseband version Are they referring to that as the gingerbread radio? Or was there a new radio released when the leaked version of GB came out? I am on Das_bamf 1.6 and if I remember correctly, it needed a radio upgrade. Am I safe?

    So if your running the old gb radio, the one on xda with the 4 or so other radios for froyo your fine? That's the one I'm using and I knw there are newer ones

    If you're not sure which radio you're running and are worried about what you've read you can check by do the following

    menu>settings>about phone>software information>baseband version

    if you see this 2.01.605.0 than you are running the gingerbread radio. Whether you want to switch back to froyo is your personal choice. For what it's worth, as I stated in the OP I've already switched back to froyo.

    That post wasn't directed towards you. It's just in case people don't know which they're running and didn't know how to find out

    Just curious, how did I make it seem like there were two gb radios?

    I just skimmed over the other post and thought that's what you meant when you responded and it sorta mad me think. I download my radio from what I believe is the first time it showed up on xda with like 4 or 5 other radio combos. Then last night I saw another page with the gb radio so I thought there were two out there.

    My personal favorite is BAMF 1.6.3, and my second favorite is BAMF stripped 1.1. They are both great ROMs...I'm definitely going to miss 2.0-5 though :(

    I agree 2.0-5 is amazing.. I have 1.6.3 downloaded just gotta go home after work and get my froyo radio

    dammit! :mad: i really thot i was done with froyo for good. :(

    guess ill run the mr1(down)upgrade and then flash cm7. for a couple days. i was wanting to go back to it for a bit anyway.

    it sucks, looks like ill have to download it,the other rooted mr1 update i allready had doesnt match the md5.

    THANKS worm,for bringin this to our attention (psst,that was a hint ;))

    Just curious, why are you going to run the mr1? You should have no problem flashing one of the froyo radios and then CM7. Side note, ADB stopped recognizing my TB for some reason, but I booted BAMF 2.0 with the froyo radio then restored Stripped 1.1 and I'm running like a champ.

    To be honest, I was planning on coming back to froyo soon anyways, Jcase's warning was just the catalyst. It was too buggy for me and the battery was awful. Sense 3.0 was just too much for me, too. I love some sense, but I wasn't a fan of the 3.0 elements. Sounds like a stock Android experience may be in my future

    And thanks for the thanks ;)

    simply because that was jcases recomendation. same reason i used adb to boot into bootloader instead of pulling the battery ;)

    flashing whole RUUs in hboot is a little scary to me,and im definately contemplating just flashing the radios(even moved them to the SD card allready :p) but a small part of me worries that the leak may have effed up partitions,or other things i dont completely understand,and thus feels that running the MR1 update before something else may "fix" something else that we dont yet even know to be broken.

    in jcases own words, he "posts what he believes to work". i.e,the most safe and reliable methods.

    damn this thing charges so slow!(maybe like a watched teapot :eek:) im nervously waiting for enuff charge to at least flash the radios.

    yep reverted also.
    i am wondering if the reboot issues have spiked recently. the changelog in rom manager has me thinking...
  18. scotty85

    scotty85 Extreme Android User

    also,i forgot to mention... my phone died the other day. no biggie. let it charge a couple minutes... wouldnt turn on. let it charge another 15 minutes and it still wouldnt turn on :eek: another 10 minutes,still no power. pull battery,still no power. try and turn on in hboot. nothing. i kept fiddling and it eventually came on,i dont know what happened.

    i dont know that this is related,but just feel like i need to procede cautiously.

    mine did that also i was on froyo. i thought it was a gonner. it took about fifteen minutes for the charge light to come on then another ten to boot up.

    scary lol.

    Flashing RUU's in hboot scares the shit out of me, too. That's why I avoid it at all costs.

    One thing I'm happy to have back with froyo is the quick mounting disk drive. I'd have to toggle internet pass through 2 or 3 times to get my SD to mount properly on gb

    why is it when i connect to my pc i cant access my sd card with the gb radio and bamf 2.0-5?

    It has to do with the kernel. There are "fixes" that seemed to work for the majority. I was not so lucky however

    i just flashed das bamf 1.6.3 remix then was able to pull up my sd card in disck drive mode then flashed the froyo radio

    You can download the patches listed in imo's kernel thread. Also click internet connection mode then back to disk drive seems to help.

    Glad I check AF often.. Thanks for the post.

    I was up till like 4:30am waiting for 2.0.5 remix and didn't even run it 24 hours before I'm back on Froyo.. :rolleyes:

    I even purposely waited until most of the bugs were worked out before I made the jump to GB. Figured 5 revisions of BAMF would have been enough to know whether this radio was solid or not.

    I could never get GB to scroll as smoothly as Froyo and that is a huge pet peeve of mine. Oh well.. at least my phone is working and not currently in a death loop.

    Thanks again for posting this! I probably would have checked XDA sometime tonight, but who knows, could have been too late by then.
