    for those that may not know,an RUU is actually HTCs Rom Updater Utility. it is an .exe file that when ran,runs software to update and flash new firmware to your HTC device. we tend to use the term "RUU" to describe als PG05IMG files installed in hboot,but this is where the term actually came from.

    this latest leak is .exe,RUU format. for sh*ts and giggles i ran the RUU and updated myself from 1.07.605.0 to 2.10.605.1(rumored to be MR3)

    anyway,at the end of it i was still revolutionary s-off(soooo snuggly :p) and all i had to was flash recovery,then superuser. im getting really tired of sense but ill run this build for a day and see if its any better.

    heres basically what it looks like,for anyone interested:

    this is whats going on on the phone during the update:

    heres what you see on the screen:

    DISCLAIMER: do not run this unless you have allready flashed the permanent patch hboot. otherwise,you will be s-on with the new 1.05.0000 hboot,and will have to re-root it to get back to s-off.

    Scotty, you are a god among mere mortals. I've never seen someone so balls nuts to throw caution to the wind just to test.

    I'm glad things stayed as they were with revolutionary. Any chance you could give us the low down on how things work? How does the new radio compare? Anything else of interest?

    I flashed it (the radio) this morning. I am already back at work so I haven't been able to put it to test really but it seemed to be about the same as the 704 radio with perhaps a little easier time connecting to LTE.

    Rex over on rootz I read people complaining that VM was not fixed in this leak

    Voicemail works just not on GB Sense roms. It won't work until they release official GB from what I'm told. It's a non starter for me personally.

    Yeah but I think people are expecting one of the leaks to bring support for VM on GB sense roms, we may not see it until the OTA but who knows we might get a new leak today that has a fix.


    Not that I really care...

    Me either. I'm waiting for that new DT / Hacker collaboration rom coming *very* soon. I'll hang 'til then. Def digging the new radio, though.

    what do people mean when they say "voicemail doesnt work on GB sense roms" ? :thinking: are they talking about the notification prollem? this is most certainly an issue,as you get no notifications until you reboot,and then you cant git rid of them until you reboot again. no one has left me any voicemails on this yet,but from what ive read its still got that issue.

    or are people refering to visual voicemail? this i cant comment on,as i dont use it.

    i assume its the first thing,as every GB sense rom ive ever run people can leave me voicemails and i can listen to them. its just the notifications are screwed up.

    So, I had a problem with these newest radios when I flashed to a new AOSP rom, I wasn't able to connect to Googles servers, so I guessed it was the radio. Not sure why, oh well. Downgraded to a different radio and all is well.
