    This is extremely good news for the TBolt community. It should fix the issues we're seeing with 3G & 4G randomly dropping (and draining battery quickly), it should fix the issue with GPS not syncing immediately (and draining battery), and with the Proximity Sensor that was apparently draining battery.

    This is going to lead to a massive improvement in battery life. Can't wait for this to drop OTA!

    Ok, I rooted just yesterday...so how do I update? Do I have to go in and reinstall the RUU? Or is this an easy thing like updating an app from the market?

    You will not lose root. To update just download and put on root of sdcard. Remove the old PG05IMG.zip file and name this one PG05IMG.zip. Make sure fast boot is unchecked. Power off then power on while holding volume down.

    If you have windows 7 just name it PG05IMG before installing check the properties of the file to ensure its not named PG05IMG.zip.zip

    if you are rooted but haven't put a rom on the phone (so stock) do you have to wipe before flashing this? also, im just curious, but does anyone know if the stock rooted receives ota updates? i know a lot of developers disable this in their roms so i was just wondering. thanks.

    Wow! I am crazy happy about this! My gps is locking on instantly now without messing around with it. Locked on immediately upon turning on maps for the first time!

    FINALLY!

    Yup...das bamf 1.5 is already based on this leak. I'm sure many other devs are hard at work updating their roms as well. I know hedney3 has said twisted sense will be updated to the new ruu and baseband in the next release.

    Hows the 3G/4G?

    Any noticeable increase in battery life? i.e. is it draining any faster or slower than you were experiencing before?
