    Finally fixed the voice to text! Too bad I got tired of waiting and rooted. Not going to fall for this one.

    +1, running CM7 now not going back to Sense. Though I would like to know if the Revolutionary tool would work with this new release.

    Me too. Though I wouldn't want to be the one to test it! ;)

    Well I've never rooted my Evo but I wanna say that I just downloaded the new update. I live in New York if it matters

    i did not get notification of an update... but my evo is acting weird.

    the bar for the phone or apps that is typically at the bottom of the screen right above the hard buttons is now stuck in a "landscape" position as opposed to "portrait". the icons are still in the portrait arrangement, but there is no text under the icons.

    is anyone else's evo doing weird things? a few weeks ago, for a few minutes, all of my icons and the phone bar would switch from portrait to landscape when i rotated my phone (just like my wife's epic 4g)

    I got the update this morning. I haven't yet had a chance to test the voice to text. That's the only thing in this update they decided to address which I cared about.

    I *think* my camera is working semi-reasonably again. I wasn't able to get it to lock the phone up this evening anyway, which is an improvement. I'll keep trying.

    I'll be fairly happy if voice to text works.. I'll be really happy if Sense stops crashing over and over when I close my browser. Ugh. That is driving me insane. I haven't gotten the update yet.. hasn't reached my area apparently.

    I would like to know from a few more people if root remains untouched after the OTA. I really want the voice to text feature fixed, but not bad enough to lose root... I'm just not brave enough to try it. :eek:

    Not rooted in NJ. Didn't update to 2.3 either. I got the maintenance update, and I don't notice much of a difference. I didn't have issues before, likely because I haven't taken the 2.3 upgrade. I won't until it's fully resolved the significant outstanding issues. Maybe never. My wife hasn't gotten this update, but her 2.3 update seems to have had 0 negative impact.

    just be patient the devs will cook the new ota into their roms. no need to accept the ota. it is a very good possibilty you could loose root and will not be able to re-root again as it will most likely close any exploits found.

    Just curious if this update does indeed fix the voice search thing. I got the phone with 2.3.3 and was shocked to find that it didn't work very well. :mad:

    if you look at the op it does say that it fixes it.

    I updated today, and it DID indeed fix the speech to text problem when driving (or when there is background noise). I can't say I've had time to really test it extensively, but I tried it a few times and it worked everytime. Seems like a good update.

    I'm hoping it fixed the Sense problem/splash screen issue. That's the one that's really driving me insane.
