  1. FYI, this is a snapdragon processor. They just changed the naming convention for the cores. The Desire Z has the MSM7230 core which per this page, is a seemingly more efficient version of the original Snapdragon CPU: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snapdragon_(processor)
  2. Actually... there IS a version that works in the US for AT&T's 3G banding, along w/ standard Edge support. http://negrielectronics.com/htc-desire-z-8...g-unlocked.html - this is the actual store page where the device is sold... Review is done here: http://pocketnow.com/android/htc-desire-z-...re-review-video Unboxing here (this shows on the side of the box the support bands for the device): http://pocketnow.com/android/htc-desire-z-...-unboxing-video I just ordered one today :rolleyes: EDIT: Coupon code for $35 off: sb35offjkh
  3. Actually I'd have to disagree with this... if this were the case, then the people who were part of the very limited test group for pre-release Froyo wouldn't be able to upgrade to the release version. I could be wrong, but I can't imagine this situation being reality.
  4. I'm getting far superior reception in comparison to the pre-2.2 radios. I can make it through an entire day in the office without once dropping signal.
  5. I'm getting better reception at the office now! This new radio seems to be a winner for me, just like stevenz said! I haven't noticed any worse reception with WiFi either but as always, results may vary from person to person. I'll update the initial post at some point to talk about results with the different radios. Let me know your findings if you continue to test :rolleyes:
  6. I was one of the very initial adopters so in the process of getting to Froyo, I had restored my phone back to the stock ERE27 ROM and the stock recovery image. At that point, I was able to flash the official ERE27-->FRF50 update zip. Now you can just download the zip provided by Paul (the pre-rooted one) and flash it through your custom recovery image. I'd recommend doing a nandroid backup, and a wipe after that, but it may not be required. And yes, I'm on AT&T, but instructions for AT&T users should be 100% identical to those for T-Mobile users. Being that said, I'd take a look at this thread from Paul. It's the full kitchen, so you can package it up however you'd like! If you're not a MoDaCo Ad Free member, I suggest donating. It's well worth it for the kitchen and it helps support his great work! Otherwise, there are two update zips at the top of the thread. One with the new radio and one without. Grab the one with for your first update if you want to flash the new radio. http://android.modaco.com/content/google-n...online-kitchen/
  7. I was hoping for this! I'm on Froyo w/ the new radio and I'll be testing out my reception at the office on Monday. Gives me a reason to look forward to work! :rolleyes:
  8. It's not related to the bootloader being unlocked, but rather that you have the official ROM and the original recovery image, correct? I'm pretty sure that having the official ROM with a customer recovery image will allow you to get the OTA update, but not actually install it.
  9. No. Since you replaced the stock recover image with your own, the OTA update won't install. It will download but then nothing beyond that. You'll have to wait for it to be packaged up into and update.zip and then install it manually through your custom recovery image.
  10. Can you elaborate on this? Are you saying that the reception issue is hardware related and that a newer batch of phones is available that they'll replace our current phones with? Oh and btw, per forum etiquette, try not to use all caps. A lot of people consider it a form of yelling :) Thanks!
  11. For the most part, yes. You have the option to package in a radio update within the kitchens for the ROMs, but assuming you don't do this, any ROM upgrades will not include a radio update.
  12. The ROM updates are separate from the radio updates. You can flash the two independently. Hopefully that helps!
  13. This thread has everything you should need: http://android.modaco.com/content/google-n...insecure-himem/ The ROMs/radios aren't packaged together, but everything is there. Just one thing to keep in mind - they're greyed out so they don't stand out immediately :P
