    What things are changed/updated in hboot version? I know that they attempt to block root exploits in the hboot changes but not sure what else. My curiousity is due to a difference in booting time between my wife's phone and mine. Both are rooted and running Kings GB R2. Her's seems to boot in about half the time mine does, even going past the splash screen before mine. The only difference between them that I see is that her's is hboot 2.10 and mine is .97. Any ideas?

    Im not sure the intent of upgrading our hboot is to get rid of our exploits I mean everyone seems ok with it on the HTC/ Sprint side. The hboot is tied to the radio nv and thereby our security but I think it's more likely they do it for some other reason like compatibility...

    As far as what changes... the radio security and at commands etc., Im not sure why they would affect boot times...

    I am not that familiar with the OS for our phones but I wasn't sure if it might also include optimizations for boot and basic functions of the phone. Possibly somethings that might have an affect on boot times for newer versions. Something like updates to Windows in a pc.

    well..hboot locks were something new for htc...though they have been doing that since november they claimed last week that they would no longer be doing so

    big thanks to the community for that. there was a huge wave of fan input that determined that outcome

    Ya I also read A link provided by another user that stated that HTC was not going to keep locking the Hboot.. I am waiting to see this cause I don't think the mobile carrier will be to happy with this as now they will incur more jacked up phones (unless there phandroid member) and you would think that insurance rates would sky rocket. This is huge
