It seems I usually find what I'm looking for after I make a post . . . :-)
Would this be the proper RUU?
[Exclusive Download] HTC Rezound Ice Cream Sandwich RUU For Final OTA (3.14.605.12)
So, can anyone get back to Root once this update is done? I am still stock ICS but once my warranty is out I would like to root so I can control permissions (Like I could on a stock Blackberry!).
Well let's see what we have here.
Verizon gave up releasing the global updated why? Because the rezound is too old to bother with jelly beans, global update, or anything else.
But the rezound uses LTE, and will continue to be used for a few more years. So this update has something to do with a LTE change.
This update is so important that it gets forced onto the phones without giving the phone owners a choice.
This update has something so unpopular, that Verizon is unwilling to reveal what it does, and instead lies to us.
My best guess is a LTE slowdown rationing system targeting people with unlimited data. The more you use, the slower it will work.
This is my guess, and I am sticking to it.
I think there is a second possibility as to why Verizon forced the update and will not talk about what is in it.
There might be such a bad mistake in the firmware programming that Verizon is too embarrassed to discuss it.
According to some of the developers on XDA, this is nothing but some minor patching to a few APKs for bugs (about 20) and fixing a 911 issue... No other significant changes and it was probably forced out due to a 911 issue.
More detail (though not much more) is available here: Minor OTA coming? - xda-developers but it reads like most threads on XDA, so take it for what it is worth.
