    Cool, mine went well, great thread.

    I deleted my yahoo app and I will see if the default mail client gets my sbc global mail pushed to it like my yahoo mail does.

    Will it check the google mail with push now ya think?

    Apps to thaw/procedure to re-start OTA?

    Probably because I had several apps frozen, my OTA downloaded and then just stopped. I found the 52MB OTAPkg.zip in /cache (must be rooted; there's a "fumo" directory in there, I think) after it downloaded, and I figured I might be able to load that into the recovery console, but I thought it would be better to get the OTA to kick off normally. So I deleted the 52MB OTAPkg.zip from the FUMO directory in /cache, I thawed out nearly everything that was HTC related, rebooted, and tried to "Check New" again... So far, no luck. Without factory resetting, what's the best procedure to get the OTA kicked off? What are the essential apps needed? What's missing?

    I noticed a very big improvement in the call quality. Anyone else?

    Went to settings, checked for new software, available, started download. Download froze. Was on WiFi. Download must be over 4G. Disabled WiFi. No help. Restarted phone, then download continued. Installation was spooky. So much time with a blank screen, then installing new Verizon software, then blank screen, back to installing new Verizon software, repeat two more times, wondered if I was in an unending loop. Finally! HTC screen, no, back to blank screen. OOOH, here's the HTC screen again!, and finally the phone turned on. Why can't they do all that stuff in the background and have one little progress bar that's a true indicator of when the installation will finish?:mad:

    Actually, there is a progress bar. If you pull down the Notification Bar it shows a progress bar allowing you to see the entire stage of the download. I did mine over WiFi and it worked without a hitch. I wouldn't trust 4G to do any kind of firmware update. Verizon might decide to have another 4G "outage" midstage and brick my phone.

    Is anyone here root/unlocked with this ota? Does it or has it effected root?
    I did try to push my update last night and status bar showed that it completed but I believe during the "unpacking"
    it may have failed. I got a green Droid with a red ! ?? Does anyone have any insight into this?
    Also, after reading many user results it appears that the update may have slowed 4g on phone. Many test running Speedtest have showed slower than normal results after the update.
    I am considering doing a factory reset and trying the ota push again but now hesitant after hearing negative results.
    I am interested in hearing from those that had root/unlocked on their results and experience thus far with this OTA
    Thanks!

    I had root/unlocked and yes it did give me better call quality and better signal but I lost root and I can't get it back. Anyone out here have any ideas?

    I didn't have any huge problems to think of, but I'm happy that HTC is on the ball with getting things fixed. Some people are afraid that companies will neglect them as far us updates and fixes. Could this be a sign of things to come? In your opinions, do you think this update took to long to be released to customers? Like I said, I never had big issues, but I'm glad that only after a few months they pushed it.

    Yep, the notification showing the arrow moving down was working, and when I swiped down to open the notification, I saw the progress bar sitting at less than 5% and not increasing at all. Both the WiFi and 4G icons appeared at the top, so I made the assumption that the download was trying to use 4G and there was some sort of conflict. That's when I went to settings and disabled WiFi. Didn't help. Nothing was happening; 4G was inactive as was the progress bar. So I powered down, started up again, was in 4G mode since I had previously disabled WiFi, and the download completed. Didn't think that stopping a download part way would brick the phone, but shutting it down midway during an installation might.
    The phone seems to be more responsive with the update. So far, so good.
