    Maybe it was a ****** response, but it was specifically stated when you signed up for the beta that if your phone had Swype preinstalled you would not be able to use the Beta. Just saying.

    Um yeah... "To put it bluntly, if you're using a beta you should really be an advanced user and be able to figure this kind of thing out anyway. If you're using software labeled as "beta" and don't know what you're doing, I don't have much sympathy"

    While I understand his point, beta software has a connotation that it is in a usable and updatable form. Typically a beta release should not require an 'advanced' user unless it's in a crappy developed state. If you mark something as alpha, then yes, an advanced user should be the only one testing it out. Beta opens things up to the masses. I wonder when they get to release candidate stage if they'll claim only advanced users should test it.
    I'm betting that post gets edited before too long...

    I know that this update breaks root, but does anyone know if unrEVOked will restore root privileges? I like to have the latest updates but I don't want to lose root.

    I posted earlier that I was trying this, but apparently my stock recovery PC36IMG.zip was bad or something because I couldn't get into recovery after flashing it. I went back to ClockworkMod recovery and tried flashing the update anyway, but it failed immediately due to the release keys error others have mentioned (I'm on 252548). Maybe one of you will have better luck.

    I also tried extracting the Blockbuster_htc.apk, but it wouldn't install either (just said "Application not installed"). I tried from the sdcard and from /system/app, changing permissions to match other .apks. No dice either way.

    Guess I'll see if the OTA is any different once I get it.

    Now there is a 4g icon on your upper left hand side of your screen - showing u now that your 4g is on. (It only appear when pi your network connection is showing 3g).

    Ps. I've never notice any lag in my 4g connection.

    so what if you already have the paid Nova game, is this just going to add another pointless icon?

    A lot of the same questions being asked over and over again. Here's a new one. Does updating break the shoot me app. Also can the blockbuster, and nova apk be extracted and posted for download. It's the only thing I'm interested in. If I dont update is the phone going to constantly remind me to update.

    funny, because you asked the same question as many others but in a slightly different way. Shoot me depends on root and this update breaks root so yeah no shoot me after update.

    Thanks for checking into it. I am tempted to try it but don't have time to fix it if something doesn't go as expected. My method would be to install the ota update (ensuring you have s-off), install clockwork recovery, and install the superuser app. That was all I was going to try.

    I think the best answers might be from someone who actually has the update installed. I remember one update shootme no longer worked without root and then the next update shootme worked without root. I think an answer from someone with it installed would be best.

    Thank you so much for posting your comment. I also posted this:
    I'm a really new user, 1 week old.
    This morning, I accepted the software update, and when it rebooted, IT FROZE! at the 4G screen.

    I waited 15 minutes, just in case.
    The on/off switch wouldn't work.
    I removed the battery.
    It still tried to reboot and froze at the 4G screen
    I took the battery out again.
    it rebooted, and moved slowly past the 4G screen, BUT all of my icons were gone!
    I waited, noticing there were still downloads happening at the top of the screen.
    I was really freaking out now. I was dealing with this about 30 minutes already.
    With it on, I let it sit for another 15 minutes, hoping it would download all it needed and get back on track.
    When I saw the downloads had stopped, still no icons on my home page, I powered on/off AGAIN, and it, slowly it came back to life.

    Is this normal for a new software update/download?
    It scared me to death!!

You are the exception. Besides you can probably just uninstall the beta version, install this system update and then reinstall the beta.

    I didn't have any version of Swype installed and I had no intention on downloading a pirated version to get it either so for me this is a God send. Before this I had to settle for the Slideit Keyboard which was not terrible but Swype is much much better. I don't really care about anything else in the update so far.

    Oh and I didn't see any new 4G widgets either.
    I have the swype beta and I actually find that shapewriter works better than swype. Shapewriter felt like it was reading my mind while I was "typing", swype is cumbersome in comparison.

    Maybe I was not clear, but although I am sure the beta version is much better than this one, and I'll admit that I have not gotten the chance to try the beta myself. For the masses though, people like me who did not get the beta version of Swype (not to mention people who had no idea how to) and who have no intention of rooting the phone. This is great. I'm sure on this forum there are disproportinately higher than average numbers of Evo users that had the Beta version installed and it sucks that you will not be able to keep it, But for that average user which in reality makes up the vast majority of Evo owners this is just going to be a really nice (free) upgrade from the stock keyboard.
    ... but I still miss WebOS

    Yea that was the whole point of asking the question. The last update made shoot me work, so now i'd like to know if it doesn't work after the update. Also an answer to my other questions would be helpfull.

    We forgive you. Actually, it has always said that it requires root. It used to work on the 2.1 version of the EVO. Then it died when it went to 2.2. It started working again with the last OTA. So, no guarantees after this new OTA until we get to test it.
