    I just recently rooted my DInc using 2.2 froyo and am now having trouble getting the GPS to connect. Any reason for this? I am in an area where i got GPS service before root.

    Are you on a 2.xx radio? It won't work on a 2.2 ROM with a 2.xx radio.

    I honestly have no clue. I rooted using Unrevoked 3.1 and SkyRaider. How do I fix this? (Sorry, I'm new to this)

    Look at your settings on the phone and see what baseband version is. if it's 1.xxx the gps and camcorder wont work unless you update the radio.

    I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure you might. Just run a Titanium backup first just to be on the safe side.

    With unrevoked forever you won't lose your installed apps. It will just give you the ability to flash a new radio because it turns s-off

    So step by step, can someone describe what I need to do...I'm really not familiar with this.

    Do I need to unroot my phone first, or what?

    Thank you for being patient with the n00b

    Ok, that has been done successfully...what about the Radio? How do I update that? I have already downloaded the file above with the new radio.

    I believe that the radio update will automatically be detected, since it's a PB31Img file, if it's on the root of the SD card.
