    Its skyraider 2.5.2 with a theme called blueraider version 2.1 which changes a lot of the green highlights to blue. Eclair doesn't have 720p.

    mine works fine! please post what radio your using Menu>settings>about phone>software information> and check what baseband it is... if it starts with a 1. then your need to flash the new radio http://androidforums.com/roms-incredible/148420-radio-2-15-00-07-28-radio.html

    hope this helps

    You need a newer radio than that....he even says that in his thread about his ROM.

    You can use the unrevoked forever to get S-off and update the radio that way, or go through the process of unrooting your phone to install the OTA update, and then reroot it, and reinstall the ROM of your choice.

    this was posted somewhere else but worked for me


    1. Make sure SD card is Fat32 format
    2. place PB31IMG.zip on root of sdcard (do not rename)
    3. turn off phone and press: vol dwn + power to enter HBOOT
    4. It will ask to continue press vol up for Yes
    5. reboot and done

    I feel like im getting contradicting answers in 2 threads.

    So im rooted, running vanilla baseband 1.00.03.04.06
    kernel 2.6.32.15-g5e1ad8b

    All i want to do is update the radio so I can use 720hd recording.
    I have urev3 dl'ed and ive followed these instructions as well
    public:forever [RootWiki]

    So since ive followed those, does that now mean I have s-off? If so, how woul i "look" or know on my phone that its worked. I just dont want to brick. Furthermore, if ive done the correct thing, do i follow the steps above with DL'ing this radio in the thread, putting it on my root, and using hboot to install a zip from the sd card, then select that? Also, how do you format your sdcard in fat32? And in doing so do you lose everything on it? Im sorry im a noob a bit, i just dont want to brick. Thanks in advance for your help

    To check to see if the S-Off install worked just boot the phone into bootloader (volume down and press power) and read the top line of text. Mine says Incredible XC Ship S-Off. Thats how you know it worked.

    Mine says the same. So now I can just download this zip for the radio, put it in my sd card root, and install the zip and I should be working fine with 720 recording with no chance of brick right?

    You put the file on the root of your SD card if it is named PB31IMG.zip it will automagically start the process when you hold volume down and power on. All you have to do is volume up to confirm when it asks you questions and then reboot and your good.

    I actually have SkyRaider 2.5.2, with Baseband 2.15.00.07.28, all is working perfectly...except my camera does not have the 720p option at all.

    Did I miss something somewhere?

    **edit**
    I do have the h.264 and h.263, as with mpeg4 encoding...just no 720p option.
