Quick update for all you people considering updating.
Stay away from the RUU installer for now!
(thats the HTC Generic 2.73.405.5 Windows RUU)
It will install a new HBOOT (SPL) version that do not allow you to boot or flash the custom made recovery image later on. And since it also installs a new recovery image your are stuck on it.
There is a way out of it and going back (I spent several hours figuring this out tonight), but it's quite complicated and involves flashing the HBOOT back (which can be dangerous and could potentially brick your phone if done wrong).
If anyone is stuck in a nonrooted ROM state due to using the RUU, with the new HBOOT drop me a PM and I'll try and help you out. If many people need it I'll do a writeup about it
So stick with Paul's update.zips for now. They work very well.
Paul, so installing this: http://content.modac...05.5-signed.zip
but installing this : http://content.modac...ed_NoDriver.zip
using the RUU installer is not a good idea for people looking to root or flash custom recovery images.
Is my understanding correct?
If so, does that imply that the former link (update.zip) does not install a new recovery image, while the latter (RUU) does not?
Question for those of you who have installed this update : does it really solve the lag problem? HTC just announced on Twitter that the official update is coming soon, with no indicative dates, just 'soon'
