Default Radio downgrade?

Right so I got the new radios and the battery is terrible compared to the previous radios. So can I just flash the old ones and everything will be good? I'm just asking because I know in calks thread it says some radios are not able to be downgraded and I don't want to have a second bricked evo...

I'm pretty sure you can change to whatever radio you want. In that thread, the only things that say not downgradable are hboots. I would flash any radio the bootloader way and never ever do a battery pull during a radio flash.

I just went through the same thing. I upgraded to the radio and kernel from the latest OTA and I was seeing much less battery life. It could be just my imagination but I downgraded both to be sure. You could just downgrade the radio but you may want to reflash your kernel even if you are not downgrading the kernel. He has a note there that a radio flash sometimes required a kernel reflash. Then wipe cache and Dalvik as always before rebooting.
