    Spreint will start releasing a new OTA update tomorrow. While unrevoked forever and 3.21 say you should keep root it may be a good idea to wait until others try. We will see here and in XDA people who are rooted take this update and let all know if you keep root or not. Remember that when ota 2.2 came out people lost root and those who did not root or took ota 2.2 and lost root had to wait about a month for a root exploit to be found. I love root, and roms based on this update will be available in a few days, so I suggest be patient and see how things turn out!

    Thanks!! Im definitely not doing it. I like where im at, i have 15 hours and still about 48 percent left on the battery. So far everythings working out.
    I decided to root, the day after 2.2 came out. Then i realized i was SOL for about a month. So i wont be making that mistake again lol

    I'll also wait to see what the XDA'ers say. I do not want to lose root. Does anyone know what is in the new update that makes it worth updating to?

    Sounds like the biggest thing is the stock HTC kernel in this update unlocks the fps

    Yeah I agree with this , I just rooted as well lastnight and installed Rom/Kernel . I am not gonna accept the update . I finially got root and I dont plan on taking any chances of loosing it LOL . Plus Im fairly content with my phone now . Its right where I want it to be in terms of life and performance . Im a firm believer "If it aint broke dont mess with it"

    I think some of the ROMs available on XDA already have this new OTA update included in them as it was leaked a few weeks ago; though someone can correct me if I am wrong.

    Thinks this is actually a newer build: 3.29.651.5

    The one they have been using for a few weeks is based on: 3.28.651.1

    The fps uncap would be nice, but I'm wayyy more concerned about the audio streaming issue (Pandora, Lastfm). Will this be fixed? That's the only reason I haven't moved to Froyo yet.

    Is there a way to disable OTA updates? Do I just not except when it asks to update and re-boot?
    sorry for the noob question...I'm learning.

    Don't accept it and there's no need to reboot.

    Well my Evo decided to automatically download the update while in my pocket at work and I still have root. So take from this what you may but it looks as thought you will not lose root with this update.

    People who want to play it safe and not lose root: just wait, and the good developers at xda will come out with ROMs based on this OTA... as for the kernel i think everybody knows that all custom kernels out there unlock the fps cap, and improve battery life. If there's anything worthy in this kernel, when xda gets the source they'll improve it even further.
    so my advice, just be patient ;)
