    Just got this notice on my phone. Has anyone upgraded? Will this break my root? I'm coming from a jailbreaked iPhone so I'm leery of any system updates. Thanks.

    If you're rooted I don't think the update will work - you'll need to wait for a rooted version of the update from XDA. Not positive, but I think that's right.


    I am semi-rooted with unrevoked - anybody know if I can just reverse unrevoked, update, then redo it?

    I was semi rooted with unrevoked. I didnt change anything and did the update.

    Most of my widgets now say "Problem loading Gadget" lol

    Update: Forgot to mention, unrevoked does not work after the update. Woops.

    Update has finished and everything on my Evo seems fine. What exactly was the update supposed to fix? I can't find an official statement on Sprint or HTC's site for the official announcement.

    Update: Now it keeps FC android...

    Actually, we'll have to wait for unrevoked to come out with an update to re-root the Evo.

    Where are you getting the update from? When I go to check updates for both firmware and htc software update I get a message saying there are no updates for my phone. I wonder if they are rolling it out based on location.

    Everything seems fine now. Had to replace some of my widgets with themselves, but otherwise all is well.

    All of my apps run fine, nothing seems broken. Maybe it's just me, but the phone seems to be a little quicker @ doing things. Probably just psychological though. ;)

    I was just thinking the same thing, it does seem faster. Apps open much faster

    Side note:

    While downloading the HTC software update do not attempt to scan for a Firmware update to install. Mine became corrupted and i needed to re-download it which sucks because i was at 20MB out of the 21.4 that it is.

    Oh well live n learn but thought i would share.

    I can really tell a difference when I went to manage applications. Used to take a good 10-20 seconds to load, took about 3 seconds.
