    Not with new(est) radios. But comparitively to say an iPhone4 and an OG Droid it's a little bit better. It's 4G battery life(no offense brandon) sucks ass.

    Posting this for Paulie in case he accidentally deletes my PM

    May want to take on the January OTA before starting if you haven't done so.

    Sync contacts to your google account

    Ok get yourself to where you can run USB Debugging mode:
    1- Run the HTC Sync installer http://www.htc.com/sea/software/htc-sync/
    2- Let it install all the prerequisite files but cancel out of the installer when it gets to this point
    [​IMG]

    using APK Batch Installer backup apps to **pick/create a folder on PC**

    Then run through this to unlock(need to register to get your unlock code)
    http://htcdev.com/bootloader

    Boot into the rom and do a fresh start. Push home to skip setup (if you can)booting just enough to where you can gain access to the SD card.

    Place this on root of SD card renamed to PH98IMG.zip(careful not to name it to PH98IMG.zip.zip) http://tiny.cc/1ytggw to flash AmonRA. Pull battery, hold vol down then power on then push power to choose fastboot it will scan sd card, accept the update with I *think* volume up.

    Let it reboot back into the rom after pushing power when it's done and rename the PH98IMG back to before(anything will do).

    Prefer red or blue? Pick and choose
    http://themikmik.com/showthread.php...-Blue-Red-ODEX&p=232761&viewfull=1#post232761

    Pick and choose a place for the rom on the SD, I suggest creating a folder called Roms, easy organization if you wish to flash another rom later on. Power off, pull battery again and power back on while holding vol down. Push power to go back into fastboot then use volume keys to choose recovery by pushing power button.

    In recovery keymappings are as follows, Up=Vol+ or Home, Down=Vol- or Menu, Back=Back, Confirm=Power or Search.

    Backup(optional)
    Choose backup/restore, checkmark with power key system/boot/data/cache, then choose Perform backup.

    From there after it's completed back out all way to main menu. Choose install flash from zip, from external sd card, choose the folder/zip then confirm with power.

    It's a touchscreen installer with not many options. Next your way through it. Desensed = more of an AOSP feel with Sense dialer and messaging.

    Once it's completed with the flash do NOT choose reboot from the installer. Back out to main menu again. This time choose developer options and reboot to bootloader. Download this and extract it to same folder as your fastboot.exe http://tiny.cc/0ltggw. Making sure nothing is selected in that folder, hold shift, then right click example menu:
    [​IMG]
    And you want to open a command window in that folder. Confirm you have Fastboot USB showing on your phone at the hboot white screen then type without quotes in the prompt:

    "fastboot flash boot boot.img"

    Once completed and you get "successful"-s, choose reboot.

    If :)rolleyes:) you get boot animation, Congrats!(let me know if you don't)

    Skip setup again with home key once you get it all booted. Go to settings, accounts and sync, login to your google account and let it complete.

    Once that is done, enable USB debugging in settings>developer. Then run a restore with APK batch installer.

    Damn that is a slow 3G Connection speed. In NYC here im getting from 3mbps to 6mpbs on T-mobile. Although your 4G kicks ass. Waiting for T-mobile to start deploying LTE-Advanced the beginning of 2013
