    Say I have the 118mb file on my desktop.

    Now what in as basic terms as possible. Thanks.

    And for the record I don't understand sync.

    Install HTC Sync.
    Plug in Phone.
    Unzip the update file.
    Run update file.
    10 minutes later you have 2.1.

    Read the page you downloaded from for a bit more detail or look at the readme that pops up as you start the update.

    Im guessing since everyone is on HTC downloading it is why its going so slow, but for us lucky ones we have great folks to help out.....Gotta love this forum sometimes

    I must be in the Twilight Zone. I downloaded my RUU from Sprint's download site after failing repeatedly to get a complete download from HTC. I extracted the exe from the zip and connected my phone. (HTC Sync already installed and running.) I get a window saying that RUU setup is preparing the InstallShield wizard that will guide me through the rest of the process. The window disappears, then nothing. No other window pops up, nothing unusual seems to be running in Task Manager. Nothing happens after the initial window asserting that InstallShield will run. Anybody else experience this?

    It had something to do with Vista, apparently. The behavior I described was on my Vista laptop. On my XP desktop the installation went fine.
