    Ok i flashed this latest radio and it seems to be working well. The GPS works fine and i get max signal strength with my carrier here in Norway (Netcom). Wireless signal is also quite good.

    I guess i have nothing bad to say about this Radio, but then again it's the first radio i have ever flashed =D

    I just wish Google would fix the market!

    yep sorry i was a bit lazy.

    some good comments, but also the odd negative one, where some people thinks it gives random reboots.

    I'll give it a whirl and report back.

    Been running this now on Virgin UK.
    Seems to hold signal better in low signal areas and gps seems quicker to lock on.

    I flashed this last night (Orange UK) and so far it is certainly no worse!

    1. Boot into Recovery mode (Home+Power on) and flash the zip.
    2. When told to do so press Home+Back to reboot the phone.
    3. You should get a new screen after the reboot with an image and some arrows or something like that; Let it do its thing. It will reboot by its self **Do Not Remove The Battery**.

    Once it reboots back into recovery mode you should see it say

    Formatting cache.....

    Which never goes away, so once you can navigate the menu (usually after a few seconds) just press Reboot and load up your OS. You can view the radio update in 'about phone'

    I would throw in a wipe of the cache + dalvik cache, it's probably ok without it but it can't hurt.

    I put this on yesterday and it doesn't seem to be noticeably different to the previous one on T-Mobile UK.

    I actually had some problems with the new Radio in the start. It would drop out a lot after coming back from sleep. Anyhow i ended up doing a full wipe and reinstalling the rom again and now it works a treat.

    Although i can't say if it's any better than the stock radio (i've never flashed the radio before) seeing as i never looked at signal strength all that much.

    ok flashed this radio.
    don't really notice the difference, although i would say that it finds wifi and gps quickly.
