I'm currently rooted and on the stock ND2 ROM. Is it possible to upgrade to the new ROM without losing any of my existing settings or data? I love having a rooted phone because of the many things that can be done, but having to start from scratch after every new update is a pain.

Has anyone noticed better LTE signal with the new ROM? I'm curious if Sprint has fixed that yet, or if a fix is out there that I don't know about.

Thank you!

You can always dirty flash, make a backup first of course. This won't update the firmware though, just the build.

Would love to add some kind of headset/bluetooth volume mod into this. I tried several volume booster apps from the market and none of them worked. And even if they did, the volume increase is barely noticeable to me. I know there are other custom ROMs that has this mod baked in, however, I think that this stock ROM is less problematic and a lot more stabler. I've tried other ROMs and after several weeks of usage, the phone would start to lag, freeze-up, and apps would start to FC. Rebooting the phone only solves the issue momentarily and it eventually returns. So I've decided to switch back to stock ROM and add some of the mods I need like, download booster, hotspot unlock, 4-way reboot, etc. So far my phone has been stable and responsively smooth. Any suggestions on the volume mod?

Just installed this, it works pretty well! Viper Clarity made a very noticeable difference. Need to play around with it some more. Thanks for pointing me to the right direction.

I hope you make an updated version with no increasing ringtone. This Rom is stable and good! The others seem to have issues. I love stock but it's missing several things I like for instance download booster, 4 way reboot, no increasing ringtone and hotspot hack.

By adding those features you eliminate the purpose of the ROM. It is stock. Meaning those extras you mentioned would make it custom. You can always get those mods individually throughout the thread.
