I'm traveling to Italy tomorrow and just want to make sure that by having rooted and flashed an ASOP ROM on it has not affected its ability to connect to the cell network out there. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

It will depending on the rom you use. I have been using Newt's rom's primarily and i know he has gotten both GSM and CDMA to work on some of his newer versions, you will have to check the changelog to see which ones work though,

Newts newest 3D 2.03 has the world phone capibilities..

But i cant speak for ASOP, you might want to check the log to see if it is listed as working or not.

I haven't tested Global Mode myself but people are reporting SkyRaider Zeus supports it.

I can give a big thumbs-up to the ROM as a whole. I have been running it for a few weeks and haven't hit a snag yet.

Oh Oh, I appreciate the feedback but is not at all what I was hoping for lol...I just posted this question on the ROMs thread but its too late to do anything about it if it does not have it enabled, $#|T!!!! For argument sake I posted it was I traveling but when in reality its a co-worker(a manager) who is traveling to Europe and is he's gonna be pissed if he steps off that plane and has no service...I'll just try and blame it on the network out there i guess if worse comes to worse lol...thanks again!

Best to go with SkyRaider Zeus. Based off the stock shipped ROM, not a port.

Which Aosp rom do you have on your friends phone?
I've read in various places that CM 7 will work globally. Not sure about any of the others though.

Sucks, I wish I had know but this is what happens when they wait till the last minute, not my fault....also, I can't even try out that ROM now cuz Im stuck w/ this butt ass iPhone until I get my DInc2 back! Maybe I'll surprise him and jailbreak his iPhone if I get bored...you got a link to that SkyRaider for when I do get it back, please?..Edited..got it! thanks!

Lmao... Jailbreak the Iphone That would be good.
I suppose there isn't much you can do know, but maybe check the TSM thread, or maybe hit up The Devs here and maybe they can tell you if it's a global rom...

Nitsuj's full rom doesn't affect the global radio. I had the same concern because im also leaving the country in a few weeks.
