    I am not responsible if you kill your phone doing this.

    You only need this if you have not accepted the recent OTA and want the new radios


    Be aware that some people have had issues with wifi after doing this. if so, just reflash your kernel and modules as you normally would.


    Run these commands one at a time

    adb reboot bootloader
    fastboot oem rebootRUU
    fastboot flash zip firmware.zip

    wait until green bar stops moving for about 30 seconds (it probably won't fill up on the way

    fastboot reboot


    This is the zip for all of the firmware from the OTA except for the boot.img, recovery.img and hboot.
    Scotty85 pointed out some potential problems with flashing just the radio so I included most of the rest of the firmware. I haven't had any issues with just the radio, but better to not take the chance.


    Thanks to SAMPCam from XDA for the instructions. i'm just posting the .zip I made up for myself

    Be aware, I am not a developer so if something goes wrong you want to go the IRC for help
    I'm only posting it because it worked for me and because no one seems to have the correct files and instructions all in one place anywhere else.

    just a couple comments,advice...

    on the rezound,we found out that changing only radios without the rest of the firmware can cause issues,not the least of wich is crappy data stability and strength.

    if the firmware package inside OTA.zip has other firmware in it,consider adding that to your download,if you havent allready. just make sure to remove the boot image and recovery ;)

    the s off process itself,and jumping back in forth in firmware also seemed to create some data issues,if you do expeirence flaky unstable data after s off, try installing the STOCK recovery,and then the factory reset/clear storage options from hboot.

    i dont know for sure s off will cause these issues like it did for the rezound,but just in case,the above may solve some fustration/headache :)

    Thanks. I took out hboot as well because from what i'm seeing on IRC, that being flashed can have some adverse effects. re-uploading now :)

    Not to sound like a noob, but the last HTC phone I had was the TBolt, and since we had a an SD slot flashing radios consisted of moving the radios to the root of SD, boot to bootloader and volume up to install the PG051.img

    So.. Being new at flashing radios on HTC devices sans SD, would this effect my current ROM and kernel based on the original firmware?

    I'm on the new radios now, but have noticed they're a little flaky at times maybe this is reason..

    Hey just to put my own 2 cents in, I just flashed this update on my htc dna and it worked fine. It helped my download speeds as well. ( I am running CM 10.2 kernel 3.4.10)
