    This is an old article, so the market has changed a little since this version. But if your market looks like the one in this article, it's the new one. If not, it has a link where you can upgrade.

    Hi, does anybody know if this update will be available also for non-Sprint phones? I have a unbranded GSM with 2.6.35.13.
    Thx.

    Just as an update; I currently have 2 days and one hours on battery, with 54% percent left. Average daily use, so I'm pretty sure this update doubled my battery life, at least in my case. Amazing.

    I still had the old white and green market on my phone. So with the update, I cleared data of the old market, and reopened it. It will still show the old market when you first open it, but push the home button so that the market stays open but is not visible and wait a few minutes and it will update on its own.

    Not this update per se, and the good news is that with your phone you don't need it.

    The primary thrust of this update has been removing Sprint spyware and changing some Sprint network access and radio updates. You're not on Sprint and don't use the same radio tech, so I'd say you're already ahead of the curve.

    That said, they may yet release some incremental update for you GSM owners - or they may just jump to ICS next, no one here can really say, I don't think.

    But the good news is that you're probably not missing anything here.

    We're guessing that the battery life increase is due to stopping the extra Sprint Carrier IQ (carrier spyware) running incessantly in the background.

    How's your battery life?

    My battery life has been amazing after the update!

    I was at 88% last night after it had been off the charger for 12 hours!

    I took the update yesterday and can definitely say that the software is alot smoother. I haven't experienced any lag so far.

    Thanks for this info. I was hoping to get a better battery performance... I can drain it easily in 6-7 hours or even less depending on the use :(

    Like the update and love the noticeable "snappiness" of the phone now.

    It actually was called carrier IQ. It was a diagnostic program that had severe security loopholes. A dev named TrevE discovered it would log every keystroke you made, read SMS messages, and even record where you would browse the web. There was a big outcry about it (I was a part) and Sprint decided to remove it.

    Has anyone had a chance to look at the Peep app, the update was supposedly suppose to make it more in line with current Twitter. Anyone notice any differences, I love Peep... because I really wouldn't want to waste space installing another twitter app and Peep works perfectly for my Twitter needs.

    I'v been having a few sudden drop of network connection (meaning my phone just stop in the middle of doing doing anything on a website) thus causing a freeze and a restart of HTC sense. I actually did a reset of the device (thinking it might be an application causing conflict) to clear the entire system of any corruption. Unless, we notify HTC or Sprint on this matter - they will assume the update was a total success.

    go to the HTC support site and start up a message there. you can also search as there may be someone else posting about it. HTC do look on those forums directly.

    Anyway to disable the battery alert when it's below 25% or 15 whatever it is? I hate those noises that popup like that.
