    Ok so I have two questions:
    1. Are they going to resolve the issue with battery drain?
    2. Will this unroot my Evo?

    Thanks.

    Don't accept it. Wait a few days and a dev will pull the rom from the update and have it rooted so everyone can try it out.

    About the battery drain, it's hard to tell. They always say the battery life is improved but most people never see it.

    I want the stupid Low Memory errors to go away and to still be able to use my phone when there's 10% free space instead of it deciding that 10% = 0% = no work for you!

    You said it. Man... I don't think i have that many apps. Probably only about 8-10 > 10MB. And I have almost all of those apps on the SD card, but i constantly hover at about 48MB free in order to keep these messages from appearing.

    I rooted a friend's Evo after updating it to 4.53.651.1 using Revolutionary today. Worked like a charm! When I was doing the process, I didn't realize it had the latest version until after it was done.

    I got it in LA'ish (Santa Clarita). I did the HTC update and clicked "check now." On about the 5th time, it came with a message that the update was available.

    Quick guess... They have a quota on how many simultaneous update downloads can take place. I got in the cue on my 5th time on checking for the update.

    I don't think this updates us to Android 2.3.4, which is required for video to work on Google Talk.


    Where do I check for the update?
    There's no guarantee that you'll get it, since Sprint's still in the process of rolling it out to everyone, but press the Menu button while on your home screen, choose Settings, scroll down to System Updates, and hit Firmware Update.

    Updated this morning in Reno, NV.

    Initial, quick impressions?

    Fixed my un-alphabetized Contact Groups!

    BUT, icons inside user folders come up generic if they're on the SD card.
    (Still have to change Scenes...)

    Too early to tell if the reboot issue has been fixed or not...

    Took a succession of photos (front and back) and video without reboots!
    However, for a few photos, the right half got some weird transparent overlaps of itself.
    The problem seems to have gone away after viewing the Gallery and going back and taking pictures...
    We'll see if this holds up after having the phone up and running for away...

    Voice search works indirectly (speaking from afar)!

    Sorry I'm scaredddddddddddddd to lose root

    I just want the fix for voice to text.

    Thank you

    I got it this morning in Illinois near St Louis, MO. It must not be too big because it dodn't take long to install. Voice to text seems to work much better, but Sense reloads still occur.

    I'm not sure if that will work but if it does turn off S-Off, then just use Revolutionary again. I think I've seen others install it and nothing happened to their root.

    Good luck. As soon as I get the update, I'm gonna give it a shot and update. I haven't seen any ROM updates with the new fixes yet and I'm tired of waiting.
