    By flashing different sprint radio give you a better signal or what? I'm not sure if its true or not.

    Yep. The radio that we had originally well...sucked >.> Hence why the S-Off/Radio/Evo 3D Guide.

    I've noticed a better signal/slight increase in download speeds with the radio from the evo 3D Guide.

    There's like 6 of them there. Which are you talking about?

    (Baseband I assume is what it shows up as, correct?)

    0.97.10.0530 <---That's what baseband shows as, that's the one I use. That's the one that's linked under "Radio" in LeslieAnn's guide.

    Ok I don't remember what radio I flash but I got it from the "fix" thread. Is there any other better radio?

    There's only one version in the "fix everything" thread and that's the radio (baseband 0.97.10.0530) from an old Sprint GB build (1.13.651.7) for the Evo 3D. The PRI in that thread is from the 2.17.651.5 Sprint GB build.

    I'm thinking of flashing the pacman Rom. So which exact radio should I flash? And can you link me to it please

    I'm really not the best person to make a recommendation for VM firmware since I don't own an Evo V 4G, but if I did the version I would start with would be the firmware zip from the Virgin Mobile OTA http://androidforums.com/evo-v-4g-all-things-root/648747-update.html#post5208151. That zip file includes the current official VM radio and PRI and since you are S-OFF you can always try other radios and/or PRI's if you have issues with that.

    For the bootloader, the engineering (ENG) 1.04 version is fine unless you use TWRP touch, for which I recommend the JBear GB (1.50.5050) bootloader. I don't have any recommendations for PRL as I usually use the one from the most recent update on my Evo 3D.

    Do you guys still have signal fluctuations with The latest firmware?

    With the latest baseband/radio 1.09.00.0706 from the ota update my signal fluctuations are minimal, +/- 5db and the texting errors are completely gone. :D
