I don't mean to sound like a complete noob coming from android and completely new to windows os but I am... What is the purpose of this rom? What will it change from my already mango focus?

Language context and better radio. Focus has 5 languages and radio is older compared to Omnia7.

@ender
have you switched to this rom, really worth switching
Also as someone mentioned that motion API bug, what about that

I didn't. Momentarily I'm quite busy and didn't have time to check it out, but it should be better than the AT&T rom. However, you should do this only if you understand what you're doing, being curious or unhappy with your current setup isn't enough. Expect a few things to possibly go wrong as this is a hack.

As long as you understand all these, you're fine.

Remember to make a backup before trying any of these and copy it to a safe location!

This rom hasnt drivers for Motion API as I said before, this is the main reason I reverted back to Rogers. I like apps like SkyMap, and Compass, these wont work on this rom, this is big fault imho. I was hopping that the OP will comment this, but he is like gone or something.

So I guess its nothing like routing and putting a ROM on a Android?

Weird...kind of sorcery...

IDK...
The OP's radio version seems the old one from regular Roms.
My frankenbuild ( Omnia7 forced updates through Zune commands) looks like this:
OS: 7720.68 (7740 only patches two outlook issues- BUT broke the marketplace locales for me)
FW rev no:2124.11.9.4
HRN :3.1.0.7
Radio software: 2124.11.9.3
......
Bootloader: 5.9.2.2

OP has radio 2103.10.11.2

What are the regular values from an UNTOUCHED ATT/Rogers rom?

Edit:
It seems that these values are standard Rogers update values...so all the Mambo Jumbo FW flashing is reverted...
