So I went through the process of downgrading my phone, updating the radio, and rooting / loading the 2.2 leak (08/1). I must say that while my actual signal strength hasn't improved (-88 to -104 at my house), call quality and network speeds have vastly improved. Before the 2.05 radio I saw download speeds around 200-400k and uploads around 600-800kbps. Really strange numbers, but I do live in the sticks. After the 2.05 radio I have much better speeds and fewer dropped calls out here. So how do I know it's 1337? Here you go! EDIT: I've always been on EVDO rev A for those who wonder.
