    There are two apps you can download, Astro File Manager will backup your apps, sms backup and restore will backup your texts, if you have a gmail account, sync it first before installing and it should backup your contacts.

    Can someone please explain in layman's terms what the Perfect SPL is and why it is a problem for rooting?

    A perfected SPL will prevent you from rooting and installing any other ROM version on your phone has is its now a non developer image.


    EDIT: The image might just be a Engineering SPL after all.

    Yeah, I just got that too - in English and French. I'd be a lot more impressed if this weren't via download and weren't being delivered under threat of 3G cutoff. o_O

    As a few people already know... This is definitely the HTC Sense update that we have been waiting for!! It runs much better. Cut down on a LOT of the chopping and the browser has MULTITOUCH zoom in and out. Everything is so well integrated and easy to use.

    Thank you all for the help and a round of applause to mjschmidt and GBD.

    It's still 1.5 though which means you don't get the new Market or apps aimed at 1.6+ .

    Good point, but it's a step in the right direction, sped up by the 911/GPS bug.

    Did the Dream get Sense also? I thought it was just supposed to be for the Magic, which is why I took advantage of the upgrade offer on the 21st (Rogers was super quick - for once - my phone arrived the next day). Anyways, Sense is a bit confusing, but it looks nice.

    Anyways, things are looking good for 2.1 in a few months!

    first impressions with HTC sense:

    1. smooth scrolling... the old OS was very choppy
    2. cool widgets, the calendar, htc mail, people
    3. contacts are confusing as hell....I think it was easier with the old android OS
    4. native browser is nice, dolphin is cool too with multitouch
    5. missing some ringtones we had previously, but I can live with it...

    crappy list, but to summarize I like HTC sense! oh btw the stock widget is great.

    I upgraded my new Magic today, Great Job HTC. HTC sense is fantastic.

    I also did teh madatory upgrade for my wife on her new (my old) Dream.

    HTC Sense is not on the Dream. In fact, I did not notice anything, 65MB download, but there did not seem to be anything changed on the UI that I could tell.

    I had absolutely no problems updating with Windows 7 on both the Deam and Magic.

    I did not follow the instructions, just downloaded, installed and worked like a charm. Checked the instructions after reading this post, and they were very clear. Easy for the standard user.

    Hi Mike,

    I understand your concern. But, believe me that the steps to manually update OS are so simple that any general Smartphone User should be able to do it on their own.

    Here's what might be a reason Rogers/HTC has not provided OTA Update. There are hundreds or thousands like me who bought Unlocked Rogers HTC Dream/Magic phone on Internet. Had Rogers/HTC provided the update OTA way, then people like me would not have gotten the OS update at all.

    I must say that the Sense UI is AWESOME!!! It is thousand times better than Stock OS. It's very fast, rich & sexy. There are a couple of issues though, for which we will need to contact Rogers/HTC.

    Dear ROGERSMARY,

    The Exchange ActiveSync stopped working after this upgrade to Sense UI (I am using HTC Magic device). I see that the OS now has a HTC Flash Player, but still when I try to go and watch Flash videos, they don
