    Cool, may not apply to most of us. It's good to see the phone isn't completely forgot about yet, albeit minor fixes.

    I look at it from the point that they updated some .so files, which may give us better audio/video performance if TDM wanted to incorporate them into CM and AOKP.

    Just got it, freaked me out, Software Update? :thinking:
    Cool looking Andy update icon.
    Latest 10.1 preview 1 is having problems, was going to jump on-board but radio and data problems swayed me from it.

    Were you on a CM or AOKP before you got the update? Are you saying that the update came and blew out root? If so, I would really like to force this to not run on my phone.

    Yep, still sucks doesn't it!
    The LG Swype style keyboard is okay but prefer Swype best, except for the long press problem.

    Does Voodoo root keeper work across the update or does it have to be a re-root?

    [Edit] Couple more questions:
    - Do frozen apps need to be unfrozen before the OTA? Some like Blockbuster are going away, so would it be a problem if it's frozen?

    - Anyone checked if FoxFi works after the update?

    Phew is right.

    Having problems with Nova Launcher taking time before the homescreen icons can be pressed. I'm gettng the message "App Not Loaded" unless I wait a bit after bootup.

    Boo hoo.

    To answer my own questions:
    - Voodoo worked great across the update. (Defrost apps, hide root, take OTA).
    - FoxFi is now part of PDANet+. Still doesn't work with WiFi (Bluetooth does work).

    Wife got the update at work, she said it applied, but when I checked it says "Failed" in the Status query, everything shows the correct numbers, but she still has all the bloatware. I did a restart, no joy, battery pull -- restart, no joy, factory data reset I guess is the next logical step. :mad:
    Any ideas anyone?

    I know, I know, CM 10.1, got to test on mine first.

    Not particularly large, considering the full size of the v7 cab is over 700mb (or was that v6?)

    I was prompted this morning around 3am. I chose not to install.
    A few hours later when my alarm went off it said the install was successful despite me telling it not to install. In rooted but still on stock os and boot loader.

    That happened to me when I first bought the phone, it came with v3 and tried to update to v4 that night while I was sleeping. I woke up in the middle of the night to find the screen on with a count down to install. I said no, and then it installed itself later that day while the battery was only at 15% and the phone was in my pocket. Bricked the phone and I had to go get a hardware replacement that afternoon, less than 20 hours after I bought it.
