I thought I was being more conservative applying a patch freeza provided.
Anyway all is not fine. If you used VPN, It's gone. If you trigger a hands free reactivate you won't get the 3G back. Some folks apps depend on seeing Sprint or what ever else was changed and won't work.
And for the record I have tried running 2.17 RUU and it did not restore it.
I was really hoping when you got back online you'd say no problem, easy fix.
1) as with anything you flash from XDA, you should consider yourself lucky you didnt brick your phone.
2) freeza warned about the banner
3) it was clear to EVERYONE that you are flashing Virgin Mobile firmware on a sprint device
4) you were told to flash at your own risk
I have 2 phones.
#1: is a developer phone from qualcomm, it is qualcomm branded, not HTC - it has a qualcomm ESN, not HTC
#2: is a retail phone just like yours
my developer phone received a OTA a few days prior to the leak - the firmware files contained in the ota matched the firmware files in freeza's firmware zip. (md5 compared) -- the difference is freeza's zip had additional files that were not part of the OTA i received.
i flashed freeza's zip on my retail phone - and yes, i had issues and problems. i updated my profile, and now the phone actually works better than b4 (faster data - not 1 issue w/ sending/receiving text msgs or calls)
phone phones are on joelz's 3.6 sense rom
for you to be hard on freeza is way uncalled for. and to this day, he is still the only one i trust with firmware zips.
