    The 3 links still do not work.
    Has anyone gotten this to work on an unrooted phone?
    I don’t like turning off my anti-virus to download sometnhing. That seems particularly scary.
    I notice there are no replies after 8/26, that does not bode well.

    I can’t get this to work. I have ClockworkMod Recovery installed and when I choose the .zip for the firmware it says, “Install aborted PB31IMG.zip (bad)”.

    Has anyone gotten this to work on an unrooted phone? Is there any particular reason why it shouldn’t work with ClockworkMod? I was able to install the Cyanogen firmware from it….
