    Not something that's noticeable. I've was having problems with access to my sdcard via usb, and prior to the update, I'd had some issues with random re-boots. I haven't had that since I updated to the latest firmware/ROM.

    If you're not having anything at all happening on your phone, I'd probably not mess with it.

    Although I guess if there were another OTA later, I'm set up for that now...

    That's kinda where I'm at for the moment being. Funny thing is my wife's rezzy is set up exactly the same as mine, except she has the updated firmware, and she got the "black screen of death" I've read about after ending a call. Lol.. I made some adjustments to her governor settings and proximity sensor so hopefully will fix..

    Nice instructions you put together btw, thx

    I used this link for anyone else looking into this issue - [Exclusive Download] Full RUU Build 4.03.605.2 For The HTC Rezound
    This is what I ended up flashing on my phone, but I haven't really noticed much difference from the previous leak I was running.

    That is the so-called "Global Leak." The radios and HBOOT are older that what is in the current OTA updated version.

    The only way to update to the current OTA from the Global Leak, should you want to do it for some reason, is to use the method I outlined above for you (that I cribbed from others who you'll discover in the links I provided).

    Good luck!

    Thanks! I take it root is required for the steps you listed? I've thought about rooting, but don't know that I want to do it unless I can get better battery life along with the latest radios.

    I was rooted, but I don't think that you need to be. Your phone's bootloader *is* required to be locked/relocked, though. And you will need to be familiar with things like adb/fastboot/etc.

    Now, at the end of the whole process to the process of updating to the OTA ROM, your phone will be rooted since that's the way that ROM was shared. But you can stop after step 4 in my little summary and have only the latest HBOOT and radios. If you go that route, then obviously you won't have to download or transfer the ROM.

    Good luck!

    There's a lot of things in there I'm not familiar with so I'm going to leave my phone as it is.

    So for the sake of completeness, here's how I went about it from the Global Leak. Two keys, I think, are to fastboot boot amon-ra everywhere it makes sense, and to have the stock recovery on your phone when you do any flashing.

    (1) Go to the this thread in the XDA Developers Rezound Android Development forum and download the ROM zip.

    (2) Go to this thread in the XDA Developers Rezound General forum, download the firmware (Post 35), and look at the process for S-On users on the Global Leak (Post 59).

    (3) Some people who reported having problems had non-stock recoveries flashed on their phones. I extracted the stock, signed recovery from the Global Leak RUU zip file, and flashed this before I re-locked my phone. Oh, and I put the new ROM zip on my external SD card.

    (4) After that, follow Post 59 above in (2) verbatim. I had zero problems after flashing the firmware using this process.

    (5) Last step is to fastboot boot from amon-ra_v16 and flash the ROM zip. I didn't re-wipe between steps (4) and (5).

    Good luck!

    I did this to mine last night. I'll finish putting my apps back on tonight, but so far the signal strength seems better.

    I am also on the global leak 4.03.605.2 so I guess I can't easily downgrade or upgrade so this is will be my version forever. No big deal for me, phone is solid. I do have episodes of being stuck in 3g but a jump in and out of airplane takes care of that and puts me back on 4g.
