    Just did the new update. Has anyone else had problems with their phone doing a "soft reset". After a phone call screen will dim and I get the loading clock. Then it comes back but all of the widgets have to reload and it acts like it has just done a full reboot. Any thoughts?

    So I received the OTA notification and tried to push the update that way but it just said that my system was updated after dismissing the notification... I then tried to manually apply the update which I did through clockwork recovery with the "apply update.zip" option.. It worked fine but then showed that I had lost su access due to setcpu going into "read only mode".. So I tried to re root using the un revoked method which when tried showed I was S OFF and then stalled at the reboot step and may have deleted clockwork recovery or changed the recovery back to stock so I can't revert back to stock.. wow this is becoming a complicated process just to apply a maintenance update.. any help guys??

    You do the update you lose root plain and simple. There is many topics on this already. Your just gonna have to wait like most of us that applied the update to wait for updates way to root. Sorry

    Definitely saw an improvement in battery life yesterday (please note: I am a -light- user of the phone.)

    Email - Twitter - gReader are some of the apps I most used yesterday. Would love to use Facebook (but we won't go there, I'll rant for days about that app...)

    At 10:18am yesterday it came off the charger, it didn't scream for it's charger (15% battery) until 12:26am this morning.

    With that said I have my apps set for background notification delays of half-hour, I honestly don't need it refreshing every five minutes! If I'm out and knocking around with my phone, I'll manually refresh it.

    All in all I'm satisfied, definitely seeing improvement.

    Hey!

    I can't install this update. I renamed it to update.zip and moved it to the root of my SD card but I get this error:

    I think this is the same problem I ran into when trying to manually update to Froyo, you can't apply with update with clockwork? Thats my only guess.

    If you're rooted, there are a couple of things you have to consider if you want to install the OTA. I think overall it should work, and you should be able to get back to root (as long as you enabled the S-OFF unrevoked feature).

    To be able to install the OTA, if you're using a custom recovery (Clockwork, AmonRa, etc.), you have to go back to a stock recovery. Once you do that, then you should be able to load the OTA update.zip on the SD card. HOWEVER, if you're like me and removed bloatware from the /system/app folder, this looks like it causes the update.zip to fail. Inside the update.zip are patch files, which patch system .apk files. If you removed apps (like CityID, HTC Footprints, MyVerizon, etc.), the update.zip tries to patch them, and since they're gone, fails the update.

    Luckily, I didn't delete those .apk files, I just moved them to another folder. So I'm in the process of copying them back, then trying to run the update.zip and seeing what happens. I'll report back.


    ** EDIT
    It worked! The update was indeed failing because I had removed some stock apps. Once I put them back, the update loaded, and I could manually root it again.

    Nothing yet, I can't even backup my card using my pc uggh. It will mount for a few while I'm copying and then unmount. But it hasn't done it today but I haven't plugged it up to my pc either.

    The update file is automatically deleted from your SD card, and the update will not come OTA because you already have it.
    No, nothing ever automatically deletes itself from your memory card.

    I just did mine manually and am rooted. It installed successfully and I still have Superuser permissions. I don't think I lost root. I see all the apps supposed to be added and root explorer installed fine. If I didn't lose root VERY COOL!
    Then it didn't install. If you install, you lose root. Period.

    Just did the new update. Has anyone else had problems with their phone doing a "soft reset". After a phone call screen will dim and I get the loading clock. Then it comes back but all of the widgets have to reload and it acts like it has just done a full reboot. Any thoughts?
    Battery pull. Usually with an OS update like this, a factory reset is a good idea too..

    So I received the OTA notification and tried to push the update that way but it just said that my system was updated after dismissing the notification... I then tried to manually apply the update which I did through clockwork recovery with the "apply update.zip" option.. It worked fine but then showed that I had lost su access due to setcpu going into "read only mode".. So I tried to re root using the un revoked method which when tried showed I was S OFF and then stalled at the reboot step and may have deleted clockwork recovery or changed the recovery back to stock so I can't revert back to stock.. wow this is becoming a complicated process just to apply a maintenance update.. any help guys??
    All you need to do is re-flash Clockwork and SU. Easy enough to find...

    If you're rooted, there are a couple of things you have to consider if you want to install the OTA. I think overall it should work, and you should be able to get back to root (as long as you enabled the S-OFF unrevoked feature).

    Correct. For all rooted users attempting to install this, you need to return any modified bloatware back to stock status..
