OKAY, this is great news then! I've got JackpotClavin's TWRP 18.104.22.168 and have made and restored several backups already. But I can't afford a brick an to be clear here... I just adb pushed (dd) the laf.bin file to keep downloader mode, or whatever its called, and now all I do is wipe system, data and caches? Won't this clear out baseband also? And what's the advantage to Phil's recovery? Is it lokified? I have been inconvenienced by not having sdcard mount/access, but have always liked TWRP. Thanks again!!
Edit, FWIW... I wiped Data and both caches and installed with TWRP, no problems at all!! This rom is noticeably faster than stock 24A also. I'm a very happy customer at this point!!!
