Oh great.

This has just started today on my Desire HD:
  • Constant random wake-ups.
  • Screen now never turns off.
  • Navigation thingy randomly turns on and asks me to do stuff
  • and the phone is now always default on speaker-phone.
I don't actually think I agreed to any updates either!

What the h*ll HTC!!!
This thread seems to have been started in January and there is no fix yet to speak of. Well done HTC, outstanding response once again.

Ok, so is there any work-around that doesn't involve rooting or making any form of contact with anyone who is in any-way a for-profit organisation?
Quite frankly I despise these companies (but I need some sort of phone). They have taken a thing of beauty (the Linux kernel) and twisted it into a bitter, insular, cynnical, paranoid ringfence; where sh1te apps that literally no-one wants or needs are forced undeletably upon users. Its not quite as bad as Apple I'll grant you, but its still pretty pathetic. I mean are they that conceited or just plain stupid? And don't say "just root it" we shouldn’t have to.

I downloaded 'Startup Manager (free)' to try and stop the app starting, but no luck, could anyone publish a list of the specific built-in modules(?) that need to be set as disabled?
