if the phone is already rooted to go from sprint to pcs metro which we dont have here-where do i get the virgin mobile rom-do i just change the baseband file only, do i try to make it stock sprint then try to swap that for stock virgin so i can get their update froyo or what – 01cowgirl May 8 '11 at 21:42
