    My guess it's what rooted TB users already have built into our ROMs that was leaked a week or so ago.

    i have the update as a non rooted user too, and I actually hope what i have isn't the update that verizon/htc is releasing... my phone has been rebooting way more with the new RUU and I have had no increase in GPS location, although it does seem my 4G--3G handoff is better...

    I installed the radio only (I'm rooted), and GPS improved dramatically.
    I'm in an area on the fringe of a 4g area, and it seems that the 4g/3g hand off is working better also.

    No reboots here, and I'm overclocking it like I stole it!

    So will you be able to get the update by going into settings>software update>check new and get it that way or will it have to be downloaded manually?

    I think a notification just shows up. I have been trying to software update and it times out with an ERROR message. Not sure what they means, but at least we know its coming.

    I had flashed the latest leak about a week ago. I had four reboots in an hours time. I think it might depend on the rom you're on, but I could be wrong. The rom I'm running now hasn't given me any reboots. I also didn't see an improvement for gps. I always end up flashing and fix gps file to lock me on. Transition is a little better from 3G to 4g.

    If you are rooted and update nothing happens right? It won't interfere.

    P.s. What radio are u guys mentioning about gps. I've tried clearing cache and using gps status to fix my gps problem.

    No luck. As of now my tb doesn't lock me to exactly where I am, OR even with the big blue circle around the small one.

    I need to enable gps, and doesn't work still.

    My google maps is pointless as of now

    alboboy10 - try this - go to your market and download GPS Status & Toolbox by EclipSim. Once you get it, go to Menu --> Tools --> Manage A-GPS state. Then click on Reset. Close the app by hitting the return button and open it back up again. Wait for the GPS assistance data to download, and in less than 5 seconds you should have a lock.

    This is how I fix my GPS every time I flash a new rom (because when I do it takes 10+ mins for a lock). After I do this fix, it gets an INSTANT lock.

    I got this from someone on the XDA forums. I cannot remember their name :( Credit goes to them.

    I tried the GPS status before, but I did it different. I put on gps, went to the app, went to reset, then went to download. And it didn't work.

    Maybe I need to exit out the app and it'll work better.

    It'll download by itself I won't need to make it?

    (There was another way to fix it if you're rooted, but it was a bit confusing so I didn't try it)

    I have a question regarding the OTA update, I apologize if it has been answered before -

    If you're rooted running the stock rom with all the bloatware renamed (not deleted), can we still receive OTA updates (like this one that's about to be released) from htc/verizon without causing the phone to break? Do we need to rename all the bloatware back to its original .apk files before we receive the updates?

    I am happy with my stock battery performance on the stock rom (I get about 17 hours a day average 6:30am - 11pm/midnight), the only reason I rooted was to remove the bloatware and get "administrative" rights to my own phone.

    Thank you!

    Sorry, But what does "rooted" mean? ALso, what's this about "renaming" rather than deleting system app's that you don't want? is that better? How do you rename the application?

    All this talk of ROM's and stuff... makes me wonder if I should investigate the "Hacking" thread. Is it worth it to learn that stuff? Or are you just begging to brick your phone?

    by all means check out the treads..for the most part if you do ur research and take ur time its worth doing and ur chances of bricking ur phone are minimal.
