Something I've been running through the old brain here..

Gonna have to agree with Thay10 and Orangechoochoo on this one.

I've also flashed, and reflashed, many many ROMs. I'm currently using the 3.06 radio, and the Engineered HBoot. Running Viper2.5.0 on one DNA, and CM11.0 nightly on the other.

I see no benefit whatsoever in returning to a "stock" or a "matched setup". The whole idea of unlocking the device is to get away from the norm, and allow customization. Mix and match if you will. Maybe an older radio works better in your area. You're unlocked so you can do what works best for you, not what works best for "most consumers".

Running an RUU, just to run an RUU, makes no real sense to me.

Again, just my opinion.

Enjoy...
