Does anyone have a link for the latest radio that I can flash for us S-ON users? The 3.24 package requires S-OFF....
There may be a flashable zip floating around with the newest radio. I have no idea as I haven't looked.

For S-On users, it's a bit of a double edged sword. I recommend you update your device with the official 3.24.531.3 RUU before flashing. this ROM. That way you'll have the newest radio and all the newest firmware. BUT...

As far as I know, Rumrunner S-Off does not yet support the newest T-Mobile software. So, if you might want to s-off in the future, know that it is not currently available. You can, however, request support from the Rumrunner team and considering it's still the 1.55 hboot, it should not be much of a challenge for them to add support. They do need to receive the requests though.

What's special about the new firmware other than the radio? I'm S-ON and I flashed the new radio.img from Behold_this's firmware.zip through ADB. Everything seems to be working fine, should I still RUU? Updating to the RUU wipes everything, doesn't it? I don't want to deal with restoring all my personal data.

If everything's working good for you, then there is no need to do anything else. The radio is the important part. Some people, myself included, just like to fully update firmware with new bases.

i'm old school.. we never flashed the firmware, I stay with my original that I get with my phone, I never seen where it was really ever needed to. only thing new to firmware was for HTC to block people from s-off and root.. that's what HTC always wants to do.:silly:
