Radios are different, frequency for high speed 3G in the US require SK17A.

No, that's not what I said. The hardware, radio that communicates with the cell tower, is different in the two models. Firmware can't change the frequency of the radio.

That means I can install a ROM build for a SK17i on a SK17a?

Without losing the SK17A 3g capabilities?

I was wondering this exact thing yesterday while looking for newer firmware.
