    I take no credit for this just reposting here. If you are rooted and have S-OFF do not take the OTA update. It has a HBOOT in it which may lock your phone. Sdobron on XDA has made a file in which he removed it and a few other things. I flashed this file and everything works fine.

    New Features
    Software stability
    Improved battery life

    Improvements
    Improvements to Trace dictionary
    Screen unresponsiveness resolved
    Device taking screen shots resolved
    Lock screen shifted up resolved
    Icon pixilation resolved
    Improved Wi-Fi connection
    Green lines on photo resolved

    Additionally, the OTA firmware.zip includes the following:

    boot.img
    hboot_8x60_1.18.0000_20110802_signedbyaa.nb0
    pg2fs_spcustom.img
    rcdata.img
    recovery.img
    tp_PYD_CYP340F0C.img

    Flashing instructions:
    1) Download the PG58IMG.ZIP from the link below
    2) Place PG58IMG.ZIP on the root directory of SD Card
    3) Reboot into Bootloader
    4) Select Bootloader
    5) A prompt will ask to initiate update
    6) Confirm update
    7) Press power button to reboot when prompted

    The root directory is the main directory of your sdcard. Not in a folder

    Do we need to do any backup/restore when doing it this way? or is it just like an OTA update?

    I did the update, but the Software version still reads 1.45.531.1 instead of 1.50.531.31 ??
    Is that right? or did I do something wrong...?
    Thanks.

    Found the original source of the file, and it's stated that the version number isn't supposed to change.

    Its 70kb because the recovery and hboot .img files were removed for those that are rooted and s-off. Are you S-OFF? What ROM are you using?
