    This was supposed to leak last night, but internet troubles held it back 'till this morning. Not touching the RUU, but the radio is screaming my name.

    Fixed link in OP for you, Scotty

    edit: also updated the Radios, Recoveries and HBOOT Thread

    Flashed and so far so good. 3G and 4G both connect up properly and everything seems normal.

    Just FYI for the radios thread:
    CDMA: 1.48.00.0906w
    LTE: 0.01.78.0906w_2

    They should. Radios are pretty much always backwards compatible.

    For some reason I can't get GPS working with the new radio. Not sure if it's me or not, however. I might have to do a Sense GPS trick. I have one backed up but yikes, what a pain. Can't be the OTA, no VM noti. Need I say more?

    Sense gps fix worked.

    In case anyone was wondering this isn't the OTA. JCase has already tweeted that despite the 4 sources who have claimed this to be the OTA he is very skeptical. With gTalk video still not functioning properly and the VM notifications still broken there's no way this is official. For some reason if it is HTC/VZW have holes in their head

    Did he have anything to say as far as what the fixes were in this build compared to the one that was dropped the other day that just did EOL crap?

    This new radio is rockin for me. My 3g/4G handling has been WAY better. I dont get service drops when my battery is off anymore, so thats leading to better battery life as well which I like. Speeds seem faster as well. I wasnt getting more than about 12mb down and 6 up on the last radio, but on this Im gettin 18-22 down and 10 up.

    I asked him and he never responded. He's notorious for tweeting conversation provoking statements and then never answering people tweets, or I should say never answering mine lol

    From what I understand the only difference between 605.2 and 605.3 is the new radio's. I haven't heard of any other changes in the RUU itself.

    And yes, so far I'm McLovin this radio!

    Handoffs are clean and quick, and speeds seem to mirror what you're seeing as well.

    I was in a more marginal 4G area last night and the 3G/4G handoffs were smooth and quick.

    I'm still a big scrub when it comes to root. I know how to put files on my sd card, flash roms, make backups. Is flashing radios as easy as just putting a file on your sd card, and flashing it?

    Basically, yes. However you need to flash radios in hboot or bootloader and not recovery. There is a sticky up there that will walk you through it. Radio flashes and any other bootloader flashes are rom independent as well. You just need to be careful and not interrupt the process. Good luck, this radio is worth the effort.

    Would you brick your phone if you rooted the revolutionary way and flashed the leaked RUU? Also would it in return restore your phone to stock instead of having to do a lengthy unroot
