I just wanted to verify, from my reading here, that if I wanted to flash miniCM10 I should flash chavito's E10a rom with the appropriate baseband (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1294579) then unlock the bootloader and flash after that?
Yes, and make sure your phone isn't locked to a provider, the bootloader unlock may disable the entire radiochip (2G/3G). You can unlock the bootloader, boot into the ROM and see if you get signal, if you don't you have to lock the bootloader again.
(If you play with flashtool, DELETE the10blrelock.ftf from the flashtool/firmware folder, it will hardbrick your phone if flashed accidentally)
