I have a couple of questions as I am coming from the OG DROID and bought my TB yesterday.

(I am fully rooted, with clockworkmod r)

Is it clockwork, or the "s-off" function that blocks OTA's ?

Also is there a guide anywhere that any of you have saved that explains what HBOOT and FAstboot are ect.? Ive been trying to find them I cant seem too. I could also be very tired lol

Is it volume Down or up? So you have to go to hboot then select recovery to go into recovery? Thanks so much for your response.

bamf 1.8.6 is froyo. most everyone is moving to gingerbread, though.

there's a debloated version of the stock ROM as well which I like, but of course doesn't come with a lot of bells and whistles.

What is that thread I read about where it says a gb ROM can brick your phone? Also do the roms include radios or do I have to flash those separate. I never had to deal with radios before using my Droid

And the gb bricking scare is long over. When the TB bricks (and it is a rare thing), the consensus as i understand it is that it is a hardware problem that probably would've happened regardless of root/rom/radio

I got mine yesterday and rooted without a problem so I'm sure I'm good. One more question. Do I flash Rom first then flash radio through hboot? Or do I do radio first. Also the radio should be compatible with the Rom right?

Flash the newest OTA radio and you'll be good for any ROM. I would flash the radio first just to make things easier.

just FYI - it doesn't matter which order you flash them in, but the thing you want to make sure about is that you've moved/renamed the radio image from the sdcard so that if you have issues with installing the rom, you won't be stuck in a bootloop at hboot. I would suggest you flash the radio, boot up into your current rom, rename the radio image, then go into recovery and flash the rom.

Sweet answers guys, all of this info has helped me so much. I am running an aosp rom like I wanted to try since last night, and I am good so far. flashed the OTA mr2 radio. I am learning a lot, as I came from the OG Droid which I new how to do everything. (minus coding haha) One question tho, is there a button combo that you can use on start up to go straight to recovery? or will it always go to bootloader?

Bootloader first only, unfortunately.

Thanks Jax, I tried to send a PM but it seems to not be working......

I was wondering if I could get some thoughts from you. Although I am a aosp man at heart, I am also (since I have an HTC phone now) willing to try other roms. It seems (please correct me if I am wrong) that every rom that is out for the TB is either in Nightlys or is beta. Is there a couple of devs for either aosp or sense that you feel do the best work as far as stable goes? I am also sure once something is deemed stable they will put that in the post. Just some advise if you could. I dont wannna bug ya. and if you dont want to say anything on here you can Gtalk me or email.

If you wanna try out a sense rom check out chingys gingeritus Rom as they are based of the latest gingerbread leak, or dasbamf :)

Is it a known issue with Aosp roms that the signal goes out completely?

Depends on what rom you are on. If you are on CM7, OMGB/FGB you should not have any issues as long as you have the newest radio. i know MIUI still has the RIL in progress and as a result data is not possible at this time. Also depends on meaning of signal? CM7 can sometimes show on the signal bars that you don't have a signal when using 4g but you should still be fine.

I use das bamf 3.0 rc 4.9.....I had some issues at first with force closing, but after fixing permissions it all ironed out. I find this rom does very will for me. Liquid thunderbread was wicked fast..but couldn't get gps to work on it. Good luck though trying them all out and seeing what u like best...everyone in these forums is very helpful.
