Has anyone made a custom ROM for this phone? I hope so. I'd like to try it out. I have 2.1 update 1 on my phone currently.
Hmm after reading that page I think I'll sit tight for a while to see if there will be another update for the backflip. I have 2 years to wait lol (contract length). I don't know my radio version which is essential... And it looks like I could brick my phone. I've seen a ROM update in a video and it looks easy enough but all that giant red text is warding me off. :P ((I'm new to the world of modifying electronics)) And we can't afford a new phone should I brick this one. Although I could go back to my old phone... Glad I have it, in case I do try to update the ROM. haha
i too was a little weiry of installing jrod rom but did and have to say it is very stable fully rooted the works
the only suggestion i have is to run repair permission from his recovery image after install
Indeed.. When I had my Backflip I was running J_rodd's ROM and it was pretty darn solid. He did a good job of optimizing the software for the hardware.
