Hi there toneytse!
I have the exact same SPL/Hardware. The guide is extremely useful therefore, as it eliminated any doubt I had about the procedure, so thank you for that. I need a small clarification, though, if you care to oblige.

In order for the warranty to be valid no "tampering" must be evident, so if at some point I need to return the device for repair I will need to be able to replace the SPL (as well as the Nandroid backup) to the original ones.

How can I be sure that the provided signed SPLs are exactly-bit wise identical to the original one? Is there a way to back my own SPL (in case it is slightly different) instead of using one the signed provided ones? Or shouldn't I worry since all the SPLs with identical specs are actually identical?

Cheers

I suggest you find the same version SPL in here(http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=529019)
In my case, i can use SHIPMENT SPL HBOOT-1.33.0009H Signed update.zip to upgrade back to same SPL version, but i am not sure repair center will check it or not. So take your risk when you hacking in other Rom.:)

Hi Toneytse, i'm a little bit confused by the following description from you:

3. Check your version and go here (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=529019) download a downgrade version. (In my case, I will download Modded HBOOT-1.33.2004)

I have exactly the same version of SPL with you, and i found our version is listed there http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=529019 which is HBOOT-1.33.0009 (SAPP10000), why you use HBOOT-1.33.2004 instead of HBOOT-1.33.0009 is it a must to use that version? i thought all the SPLs listed there are all MODIFIED?

do you think its possible to swap the nandroid backup data.img from daldroids rom that i have with the nandroid backup data.img from rogers rom and then flash to device? just because i find the daldroid rom not really customised for rogers 7.2mbps data connection. i could be wrong. Please advise. Thanks.

Thanks toneytse,

Thanks for the detail instruction, I have successfully backup my ROM. I have one question about the SPL. The shipment one 1.33.0009 while the modded one is 1.33.2004/2005. Does it mean 1.33.2004 is newer, or it is just the same thing just that it is modded to make flashing possible?
