    Hey I'm going to unroot my boss's phone and I originally rooted it with unrevoked.

    In order to flash the s-on tool and run the ruu, I apparently need to restore the 11.19 radio set. Do I need to roll back the wimax radio and PRI as well? What was the wimax version that came out with the 11.19 radios? Or does that matter? I'm using this thread, which is what I used to unroot my original evo when it had hardware issues.

    You might as well roll them all back so they match....

    Here's the appropriate Wimax

    Here's the appropriate PRI

    Here's the appropriate NV

    Flashable in recovery. Also flash one per recovery session.

    Yes. 3.70xxxx build which I believe is the appropriate RUU for your bosses phone.

    Doing it tomorrow. Had to leave early today. When doing all the radio changes should I fully boot each time? By my count I'll have to change radio, wimax, pr, nv...then the son tool and finally run the ruu in hboot. Whew!

    Hey Frenchy, couldn't he flash a combo?
    I can't remember if they still have em for that far back.
    Save a few boots.

    Edit: I just checked and the only combo I saw was the most recent radio combo. :(

    That would have saved a bunch of time.

    You're right.....The closest thing I could find to the combo is this. It says Fresh ROM combo but it'll work for any ROM or any rooted Android.
