    First off, i am not a noob by any means. I worked for Sprint for over 2 years and I have cyanogenmod on ALL 5 OF MY SPRINT ANDROIDS!! (Hero, Epic 4g, Evo 4G, Evo Shift 4G (on Rockmod, the only exception) and of Course my Shooter. I have been on Alpha 3 almost since it came out. I have tried EVERY .zip of the 2.3.7 cyan firmware, and EVERY flash method (including boot.img flash from fastboot prior to flashing the rom via recovery. NO MATTER WHAT I DO FIRMWARE 2.3.5 REMAINS. ‘S’ Is still on. But I am “rooted via revolutionary”…
