MrVanX,

This is nice. Though I do not need it anymore, since I had to read the wiki and all the posts to get to where I am now, I am sure it will help reduce some of the noob questions.

I do not regret doing what I had to do, since I learned a lot during the process.

But thanks for taking the time to make this.

Thank you for the guide, I really do appreciate it.

One question though after doing a search and checking the wiki.

I checked my bootloader and it is 1.10 Oli.

I was going to load the HardSPL v3 prior to upgraded to the 1.38 radio.

One of the choices of bootloader is NOT 1.10 Oli...does this mean I do not need to do the HardSPL? Or do I still need it?

Thanks in advance...and if I missed the thread I'm prepared to smack myself across the face 20 times in restitution.

You will notice in "how to upgrade HardSPL v3" the guide says "if your version is 1.10.oli or 1.11.oli select the BLUE OPTION". When you run the HardSPL v3 installer you select the force sspl option. OK?? (i changed the wording of the guide)

What a great guide - would have saved me endless trouble when I started upgrading (including my brick - repaired courtesy of Vodafone ) - but then again I've also learned loads the harder way.

Can you just write a guide on Un-Bricking, Cooking Roms, Installing apps, Creating Cabs, Searching, Reading the Wiki etc, etc (Hmmm, now there's a project)

Only kidding, but maybe if we can link this guide and the Unbricking thread to be the first thing a new member sees when they sign up as a member to the forums we may see less 'help I'm a ****wit' threads

Excellent guide!

Just wondering, will you be creating a "downgrade guide" for those who wish to revert everything back to their original state (OS ROM, Radio ROM & bootloader) for warranty purposes?

Thanks!
