    I manually updated the phone with the file that was posted here as the leaked update. The process was easy and pretty much headache free. I used the trial version of MyBackup app and it did what its supposed to do.

    However I am facing some problems and have some questions also.

    1. It seems that my display is not working correctly now. Maybe it is just me, but i can tell that that the backlight is not as responsive as it should be. It doesnt go to the set brightness level as fast and smooth as it was.
    2. I let MyBackup restore the apps also and it was a mistake in my opinion. It erased the apps in "My downloads". Now not only can't I find a certain app (USA Today seems to disappear...and no, not the USA Today widget one. that one sucks. Anyone knows what happened to it?) I also dont know how to uninstall an app if it is not in my downloads. I suppose in manage applications? Correct me if I am wrong.
    3. For me YouTube app started working better, but still says it cant play video in High Quality mode.
    4. Anyone using something different from the People app?
    5. Could not find a post about how to erase the vocabulary you added. I spelled something wrong and need to get rid of it.
    6. The email is set to update once i day..still i get the notification as soon as I receive one. Help?

    Overall, there is a little speed improvement. I didnt notice any drastic improvement, but its just quicker a bit. However, Id rather have my display back to working the way its supposed to be. I can wait until the OTA officially comes out.

    Also, in Handcent SMS, whenever I get 2 page texts, i get "Preceding msg modified, media objects were removed" and the senders get a text back saying that my phone doesnt support something even though they sent a plain text.

    Just to let you know, since you updated it already, you won't get the OTA update.. unless another, newer one comes out.

    I understand that, but since you mentioned it, is there a way to roll back?

    No way to roll back, unless it gets rooted maybe.

    No it won't. Pull it, leave it out for 2 minutes. See if it helps. If not then I'd consider doing a Factory Reset, or maybe re-installing the RUU.

    1. Could you have the auto brightness setting enabled?
    2. You can go to manage apps and uninstall them from there. Also go here for any apps you may be looking for: 4shared.com - file sharing network - free file search - .apk
    3. The YouTube videos weren't working since the last OTA update, only low-def videos seem to work. HTC has yet to fix this, or even give a rat's ass.
    4. I sure don't, maybe someone else does.
    5. You can not erase the custom words, only clear the entire list.
    6. I cannot really remember how to work this, as I love my push email.

    Thar ya go, hope it helps a little.

    1. I did for a bit, but not having it really saves battery for me. I live in Florida, so it would always be at the highest brightness outside.
    2. Great, thanks for that.
    3. Yea i knew, that, but i saw some people said it worked for them.
    4.
    5. How can I do that?
    6. Thanks))


    it did help, a lot =)

    what about the person who send you the text? do they get some kind of a message saying that your phone doesnt support something?
