    So i just got my replacement phone, the build is perfect. no light leak, battery is freaking awesome. Problem is they took the android launcher off and more stock apps off. so it only comes stock with Sense. But over all this is as perfect as the evo can get. I love my evo not wasting my time with another cheap build samsung.

    What ROM did they load on it? I just requested a replacement today. Hoping they still have the previous rom on the phones so I can reroot.

    I received my replacement today for my wife's (had light leakage) under 30 days. The OTA update was not on there.... got the notification once I was on the network though and updated it. Shipped yesterday, received today. No light leakage.

    Mine is not a replacement but I got it today. I have not notice any problems with the build of light leak problems. As the other poster said not android launcher:

    Software 1.32.651.6
    Radio 1.39.00.05.31
    Kernel 2.6.29-a2443432

    The ota didn't come preloaded It asked me to install but I cancelled out, b/c I plan on rooting.

    Build date...I'm not sure. where would I look for it? when I boot into recovery there is a date there of april 14 but that does not sound right.

    Do you know which screen/display it came with? Also, could you please post a shot of the H/W version?

    Thanks!

    No 004, skipped to 005...color me suspicious.

    HTC escalations better hook it up for all of us who waited to swap.

    I'm supposed to have my replacement by tomorrow, it should be one of the newer builds. I'll see what I can do about a screen shot for you guys. :D. Let me know what other stuff you guys want to know about it.

    I'm confused. This should have the same ROM as nearly everyone else has from pre 2nd OTA. If you didn't apply the OTA update, nothing should be different and the Shootme app should still work. What apps do you think are missing?

    Yeah, and it is a little strange that we haven't even seen an 004 yet.
