Hey guys.... Thanks to a member here at XDA, Krylon360, I have gotten my hands on the unreleased 2.2.1 Espresso OTA and so as usual my first stop in is to provide the new radio update while I sort the patches out and get you guys a stock rooted ROM... So without further chit chat as I got some work ahead of me, heres the new radio update taking baseband to 7.15.35.16.... Havent noticed much change although I have also tested nothing speedwise tbh so I will let you all report back on these things.... Grab the radio update here or here and let me know of any improvements or even negative effects it has caused with data, battery life, wifi, etc.... A CR_Mod stock., rooted OTA will follow shortly and you guys can get your much awaited 2.2.1 Froyo Espresso on early since TMO wants to lag..... Have fun... CR

PS: I did this with an update script rather than an updater script as it was easiest in windows which Im on for the moment... I will convert to an updater script in a little while. What does this mean you ask? It means any of you who have flashed the unsupported as of yet CWM 3.0+ rec images that are floating around will not be able to flash the radio. To fix this, use rom manager to reflash the current supported CWM rec, flash the radio, and if you must, reflash the CWM 3.0+ rec in fastboot.

Holy cow, wasn't expecting this, downloading here in a sec and then flashing!

EDIT: I think I may have experienced a double in downloading speed... But I could just be thinking that's whats going on.

Chiefz, thanks for the radio dump. I flashed via fastboot. Haven't noticed *any* changes whatsoever, though... Not that surprising.

I am, however, most interested in the actual contents of the froyo OTA. Any chance you could put the whole zip up for download before you root it and defang it?

It wont flash on a non rooted phone... It does a version check and it looks for a version we don't even have so it fails.... Im looking for the esprimg that may help the process... Not sure if this is gonna be as easy as last time... CR
Well, at least in *my* case, I only want the zip so I can take it apart and see if I can appropriate the wifi calling bits for CM7. But if you don't want to release it just yet I understand. Thanks for providing the radio at least.

    OK... so we made some progress today again with help from Krylon360... nbetcher and I were workin on it till bout 4am when I had to get some rest.. ( I still have pneumonia)... But today new stuff was discovered.... We were on a retail build of eclair 1.35.531.1 if we were updated all the way current, same build with patches as my OTA ROM... The OTA I was provided with was a 1.35.531.3 to 2.10 update but needed test-keys in the verification check.... So we were trying to manually patch each individual file ( like 200 or some ish) and had a few issues there. NOW, we have the incremental update to .3 as well as the froyo update with release keys.... Im flashing it now and will see if root can be accomplished on the build, if so will dump the images bypassing having to manually patch each one and then create a custom ROM from my own dump.... Just wanted to stop in and let you guys know that I am working on it, I have help, and I WILL get a ROM out if its at all possible... Dont want you guys to think its vaporware and Im just holding on to something and holding everyone back.... CR
