Default HTC One V - OTA update

Whoever is interested:

Telus has a 34MB (approx.) OTA update for the One V. Not too much detail however, the Software Number is now version 2.22.661.2.

My wife has a One V and has complained that her texting and google talk act bizarre (won't let her send messages, show the wrong name with a number in texts, etc). Had you seen this behaviour with yours?

I'll have her update.

I haven't experienced that problem that you mentioned. To be honest the only issue I've had is with Facebook about 2 weeks ago when they had 2 very buggy releases in a row. That's not to blame the phone though.

I was rooted for a time and had a custom ROM, etc however, I returned to stock and did the One V update just yesterday. So far everything seems about the same. Battery life has always been great, about a day and a half. We'll see if this update changes that in any way.

Awesome, thanks for the info.

Any custom rom advice if I decide to throw one on there for my wife? Did you have a favorite that was pretty solid?

Depends on how the better-half uses the phone. For me I tried 3 different ROMs when I was rooted; 2 were from Lloir (CM10 4.1.1 Jellybean (unofficial) [ROM][PrimoU/GSM] 3/9/12 CM10 B54 *Unofficial* - xda-developers and CM9 4.0.4 [ROM] 30/8/12 Cyanogen 9 RC1 [GSM] - xda-developers ) and I also tried myONEv by ckpv5 [ROM-PrimoU|GSM] [01-September] myONEv RC5.0 FX - xda-developers

I really liked all 3 but preferred CM9 and 10 as there is no Sense. Amazing progress is being made by Lloir and I might re-root soon.

She 'likes' sense, but I suspect if it means better performance she would absolutely give it up. I'll do some reading on the ones you mentioned - appreciate it!

Installing Lloir's CM9 RC1 as we speak ...couldn't stand the slow Sense on a single core system like this. 8)

A little off topic, but is the root process pretty straight forward for the OneV? I've only rooted the Hero and Nexus S previously.

The One V rooting process is more involved than other phones I've had. Saying that it's not any harder to root, just extra steps are needed.

The instructions to root can be found here: [GUIDE] How to Root the HTC One V
