When it says no radio included, use your own. Does that mean it wont be able to send/receive calls? If so, how do you get a radio to go with it?

ps. sorry for the noob question

By sparsons92287 August 20, 2010 04:58 AM

I guess what I mean is how to I install the radio and the new ROM? It won't over write the other?

(Reply)

By Judeh August 20, 2010 09:09 AM

when it says no radio included means:
This ROM wont replace ANY Radio version you already have in your device. So your Radio version will still be the default one provided by your stock ROM. if you would like to change the Radio version you must Download the stand-alone Radio ROMs which does not affect your WM build ROM.

By sparsons92287 August 20, 2010 06:27 PM

Awesome, thank you for the reply!

this rom is a showoff look and feel, you get iphone and android users jealus, and it's stable, the only problem i had was that i stopped receiving sms messages, everything else was good, the screen blanks out ocasionally and you can only get away with a restart, but i'll try to update the radio to see if there are improvements.
