    I just want Froyo so I can get rid of 2.1 and Sense. All these different UI's is the real fragmentation on Android.

    I followed this guide and now I cant connect to any 4g towers. It looks like i have some dev build because I can see extra stuff I didn't have access to before like wimax settings and stuff like that.

    Any ideas?
