    I wonder if this is the SD card fix, just got it 1 minute ago.

    Apparently so, yes. Already being discussed in several other threads.

    DO NOT INSTALL IT if you intend to root.

    This update stops the ability to root? Too late, update installed.

    it has not been confirmed if it does or not. the guys who are the root devs have not made an official announcement.. only to hold off as they check it. report the facts...

    For the curious, I just applied the update myself. Am going on vacation for a week tomorrow, so I'll root when I return.

    Took maybe 5-7 minutes to complete. The Evo rebooted several times during the process. My SD card mounted without issue afterwards. I'm hoping this solves the issue, and if so, major kudos to HTC for fixing it by launch day!

    Lots of people reporting that even after applying the OTA update, they can still use Toast's root method

    Yep, its the SD card fix. The Sprint rep tried to do it for me at the store but it wouldn't download. He told me to try again later, which I did, and installed no problem.

    From Wired article in comment section ("this issue" he refers to is the SD card problems per the article):

    "An over-the-air software fix is now available (June 4) that addresses this issue. When customers activate the EVO today, they will be asked to complete the software update which will resolve the issue. You can install the update manually by going to "Settings > System Updates > HTC software update" on the EVO, then following the instructions as prompted."

    I did this update this morning and when my phone rebooted it just rebooted over and over again. Removing the battery would shut off the phone however when I put it back in and turned the phone on again it would still reboot over and over again. I had to follow the procedure below to fix it, which was pretty much a hard reset. My wife had no issues doing the update. Just wanted to share.

    How to hard reset the HTC EVO 4G

    We show you how to factory reset the HTC EVO 4G to clear all data and restore its original settings

    The HTC EVO 4G is highly customizable and you have been hard at work tweaking it to your liking, but now the fun is over and you want to return it to its factory settings again. Here, we show you how to hard reset the HTC EVO 4G with step by step instructions.

    Please note that all data will be deleted from the HTC EVO 4G as a result of this procedure. This process does NOT delete data stored on the microSD card. We recommend backing up all of your personal data before proceeding.

    Turn the power off.

    If your HTC EVO 4G is frozen, pull the battery out and reinsert it

    Hold the Volume Down button

    Press and release the Power button

    You are now presented with a menu that allows for Fastbook, Recovery, Clear Storage, and Simlock

    Select Clear Storage by pressing the Volume Down button

    Press and release the Power button

    Now simply confirm your decision: Volume Up for YES and Volume Down for NO

    If you selected YES, all data including third-party applications will be deleted from the HTC EVO 4G. Once the wipe is complete, the phone will reboot to its factory fresh state.

    Will this allow for a rooting even after an update? And a bigger question: This is my first android device, what is "rooting"? What does it involve, and what function does it serve?
