    Can somebody help me to explain the step by step process to update my firmware?
    I have this random shut off problem (rarely, but sometimes it is so irritating..), I've tried wiping dalvik, cache, fix permission, changing ROMs and kernels, and still can't figure out what the problem is. I'm thinking that updating firmware might help. So what should I do now to update firmware?
    I'm currently unlock, S-On with Hboot 1.50.

    Thanks..

    Has nothing to do with your update, if you decide to update you may loose your root and have to unlock HTC way all over again and may have issues, so more info would help in trouble shooting your issue.

    Hmm.. i'm running out of idea for this random shut off..

    It usually happens in an area when i don't have good signal reception. Is there any way i can improve my signal reception?

    To upgrade your firmware:

    1) Back up everything in Titanium/Mybackup

    2) Relock your bootloader (type "fastboot oem lock")

    3) Run RUU

    4) Re-unlock your bootloader (I believe the command is "fastboot flash unlocktoken Unlock_code.bin" - I may be wrong on this...it's in the root guide).

    5) Flash a new custom recovery (the RUU overwrites it - you can find a link in the root guide)

    6) Flash the updated ROM/Kernel (also available in the root guide)

    7) Restore Titanium/MyBackup files.

    Thanks for the reply..

    will i get any problem on relocking-unlocking?

    And, for unlocking, do i use the previous unlock code, or should i get a new one?

    It's the same code as you used last time. And I wouldn't anticipate any problems. RUUs generally clean up the phone's firmware issues, so the unlock should also go smooth.

    Amazing how you can keep up with all the HBoot 1.50 stuff, it still confuses me, LOL I can't keep up anymore damn HTC get a life :musicus:

    But yes as J mentioned you use the same code, hope you saved it.

    Even if he didn't, anyone can get a copy by doing the fastboot get token command and log back into HTC Dev and submit the code again. The program on the HTC Dev site doesn't bother to check if you've requested a code before or not and will generate another unlock_code.bin.

    Or check their email inbox, I bet it'll be buried in there, still :p

    Yep, absolutely. I have one code in my laptop, and another one in my email.
    When going to play around like this, we gotta to make a backup, right? ;)

    Yes, running the RUU and flashing the unlock code will wipe out your settings, apps, etc.
