3.17 Software with new firmware
My wife's Evo kept failing the 3.17 OTA so I moonshined it this week to allow her to get on latest firmware and software. She is stock other than S-off and root. I am fully aware that the firmware/radio and software are two different things. After getting S-off I flashed the current 3.17 bootloader firmware from Captain's thread and all went well and she is now on 1.13.11.0830 radio. Now I want to get her the software updates to move her from 3.16.651.xx to 3.17.651.4. My question is how to best do this. My thought is to flash the stock rooted deodexed rom but I didn't know if there was an alternative better way. Also, considering that an OTA upgrade of software is a dirty flash sort of, can I dirty flash stock rooted 3.17 over her current 3.16 without doing full wipe. Yes, I realize full wipe would be best and I am willing to do that if dirty flash is a mess. But, for time saving, is there any real danger in dirty flashing stock rooted 3.17 over her current stock rom with s-off and root? It just seems to me to be the rooted equivalalent of taking the OTA update.
Thanks for any advice.
