    Those who have updated - would appreciate is way lots if one of you would be so kind to share your bootloader revision.

    Settings, Power, uncheck fastboot, power down. Power up while holding volume down button.

    Nothing dangerous or destructive will happen - it just gets you to a low level menu with the bootloader revision at the top.

    Volume buttons navigate up/down in menu, tap on power to select choice (reboot or power down to leave the confusion there - whichever is presented that you'd like next).

    Thanks in advance!! :)

    The reset will remove the 4-pack of updates you had previously for Watch, etc.

    Re-check for software updates after all is said and done, in case you need to grab those again - they may have included those in this update - but - I'm rooted, so can't know.

    ~~~~~

    Settings, About phone, Software information, More -

    Old Baseband = 0.97.10.0350
    Old PRI (not L) Version = 1.15_003

    New ones are.... ?? :) (please)

    Baseband is radio revision.

    ~~~~~

    HBOOT of 1.50 is not supported by current rooting method.

    Accepting this update means root is closed to you until either an update to root comes - or HTC provides the bootloader unlock.

    I don't get a pop up. What happens is if I check an incoming message sometimes it will still show as unchecked when I go into the actual messaging app even though I've read the message. Also when I send a message whomever I sent the message to will have a green bubble with the number count of sent messages as if I hadn't read an incoming message. The sent message notifciation is unchecked.

    Performed the update, love having screenshots and not having the power down menu come up when I hold it for a bit too long.

    Hoping this also helps some of the crashing issues and the camera issues.

    After the update and initial boot, my phone locked up. I had to pull the battery. Here is what I saw next.

    Fwiw, I didn't even have to manually check for the update. I got a notification that a "System update is available". Haven't done it yet. I think i will wait to see if anyone runs into problems first.

    Remember!

    This is a major update.

    Typical major updates in Android will often leave cache areas stale, dirty, and tangled.

    This can inhibit proper operation of update features -- and can even lead to the appearance of old things that were working to be broken now.

    For best results, save as much as possible (consider MyBackup Pro, for example), and perform a factory data reset.

    If in doubt, ok to wait - but at the first sign of issues, best to give that a go.

    Since July 2010, I have never updated without doing a factory data reset.

    Others on the forum will attest that this is the way to go.

    Not an HTC issue, not a Sprint issue - an Android-wide issue.

    ~~~~~

    At the heart of Android is a thing called the Dalvik Virtual Machine. It's what your apps run under. And it has its own cache. And updates tend to never clear that out.

    That's the main issue.

    Rooters know to always clear this on rom updates. ;)

    Factory data reset is your way to get it done properly if not rooted.

    K I Googled the screen capture, no software needed, thanks figured it out, I still did not update so I was not sure it could be done without root. Also the fact that they are offering the uninstalling of more apps tells me they are really trying to get the people not to root and give them more options for there phone

    Since this update is 2.3.4, now we have to bug HTC about the google video chat app.

    I see that now that I installed it. ;)

    I'm guessing they rolled it all into one update since those are not popping up and HTCWatch is functioning without them. Problem is that now I cannot watch the movie without it trying to force me to set up a HTCWatch account (I used to be able to press the on screen menu key and see the video listed then press it and it would play; now it kicks right to a log in screen - I'm not going to sign up just for this movie and in the future I don't plan to buy digital copies of any media ever).

    I'm seeing better signal quality (from 1 bar to 3 bars). But it could just be coincidental or placebo effect. I live in an area where it fluctuates or I tower hop. Haven't placed a call yet to test actual quality.

    HTC Watch always required me to log-in before being able to watch TGH. So - our mileage varied on that one.

    The radio did indeed update, so maybe not placebo effect. Will wait for your further report. :)
