    umm, as for # 1, is this signified by a blank (black) screen?

    I am eternally grateful for your rapid responses. I have another question though:

    1 If I enable USB Debugging before I turn the phone off, will it remember that upon startup? (when using this method to start hboot)

    pardon my noobishness, please. I am not stupid, but I want some confirmation on these things before I start (and am aware that these questions probably seem annoying to someone who knows the answers)

    I'm just gonna wait a day or so for HTC to fix it.

    No sense in urgently trying to go from .3 to .6 - unless you have OCD.

    basically you need to go into the bootloader to change it to USB. The file is an HTC program that will flash the phone.

    Not to be a jerk, but why mess with all of this if you have .3? What's the benefit, as the .6 just consists of minimal changes that don't affect anything at all?

    Me? I'm only comfortable with whatever HTC releases in a few days. I want my .6 to be fully updatable in the future.

    No more hacking around with bootloaders, etc. Just not worth it unless someone has gingerbread or something.

    IDC if it's released by HTC or not. but, I'm not a freakin guinea pig. when this stuff happens, if it's legit, there will be NO question. as of now, there is nothing but questions. until i see someone that I trust, post that this works, i am standing pat

    This is a fix from HTC that was sent to the Sprint store. Chill out.

    Nice one man! I'm gonna wait for now...(though I'm downloading this file) and see if HTC can get a sane upgrade path to us...but it's great to know I have this option and it's been confirmed to work. No way was I going to turn my precious, perfect EVO over to the grubby hands of an under paid tech at the Sprint Repair Center and lose the use of my phone for a full day. Thanks again!

    I know where it came from. don't think i don't appreciate your help. i do. i spent 10 minutes waiting to see additional responses to the thread on XDA, and nothing showed up. so i'm waiting. more are showing up now but, it's taking time. you have to understand, there is no reason for me to rush, my evo is working flawless. i want to be with the mainstream, but not at the cost of my phone.

    if that were what i wanted, i'd have taken it to a sprint store, and let them F%^& it up.

    Oh yeah...it's got it's own thread at XDA and has been confirmed now, just like it has here...like you, I'm going the more cautious route and seeing what HTC comes up with...no rush, since .3 has been perfect for me. I just want to make sure I get to .6 so I can pick up future upgrades, like you:

    and, this obviously does NOT work for people on a MAC computer, so, those of us will just wait for HTC to release something OTA..,3 works perfectly anyway; this is just something to ensure FUTURE upgradeability

    SD Card too? I am guessing this is a wipe and not an upgrade, correct?

    Yes it wipes the phone but not the SD Card....I didn't have to do any of the stuff in post 1 to install it either. Plugged my phone in, ran the exe and it installed fine. No turning on USB debugging or hboot. Took only a few minutes to install.
