    For rooted users only, its not being pushed by sprint because its a test build.

    Is Sprint working on it or they are not going to push it out at all?

    They are working on a update. Since the last update, my (and others) wireless teethering have been having problems with range. I emailed sprint about the problem and they emailed me back telling me that they are aware of of the issue and here engineers are working hard for a fix. Root users can download a app and change there channel to help the problem but us non-root users are stuck with a poor signal range, even if my Evo is next to my ps3 or roku box. I could be wrong but that's all i can think off, plus other have said that they are having great battery life since the root update.

    I choose not to root as I don't really feel like doing extra things to my Evo. I'm happy with just stock android, it suites me plenty for everyday use. Root users however do get the best out of there Evo with more options, but some like myself are just fine with stock.

    Wi fi and wireless tethering are not the same thing. Hopefully they are fixing the wi fi issue that many have experienced.

    They are talking about the range of the connection when using the EVO as a hotspot. Not the range when connected to a wifi network. Both are having issues, but the range when being used as a hotspot is really bad for some.

    You are not running stock Android ;-) You are running Stock Sense.

    I love stock Sense, but I like to have my phone rooted just in case if I get that feeling for adventure.

    You don't have stock Sense, though, you have Fresh. and a custom kernel. You're a closet flasher aren't you? LOL

    I don't know if they'd really be able to do that. For instance if you root and flash CyanogenMod (which isn't made off of what htc/sprint did for the Evo) you get to use Android's stock tethering abilities (the ones that were removed by sprint/htc).

    I guess they could do something about letting the wireless tether app run correctly but I think then the developer would just, hopefully, have a work around.

    So how does this affect those of us that put the Unrevoked3 root on our phones.

    It said it is permanent but I have to ask; will future patches mess us up, do we need to re-apply etc... Silly questions I am sure...

    Well I think there will be a higher version number then the leaked one xda got ahold of. I the email from sprint last week about them working on a wireless teethering fix. As someone else said, its probably a beta release that's why we have not got the update notice yet.

    I have the new leaked version installed and my free wireless tether still works. So if they are working on stopping that, it's not in this build.

    i was told today by a sprint Tech at a sprint store that part of this new update was to update the HTC Sense. he said he got an early build and said it was AWESOME! i sure hope this is true. i love sense but its getting kinda outdated so it kinda makes sense..

    The leaked version only has some minor fixes, but without the Official change log we cant tell.

    HTC sense hasnt changed at all.

    It would be a while until the new sense comes out when the new devices havent even been released yet.
