We should still be able to flash the radios but we need someone to make us a update.zip. correct me if I'm wrong but they should be signed by HTC and if prepared correctly should be flashable.

Edit:
I'm not sure that our hboot looks for an update.zip.

Has anybody just tried to flash it via fast boot?

Nope, does not appear so. Just tried it. Doesn't seem to recognize an update/firmware/PL83IMG.zip. Most likely because we don't have an sdcard, and hboot searches for those files on it.

It could be worth a try. I am not sure if S-ON locks everything down. I remember when I had my Evo 3D/LTE you were able to flash certain files even with S-ON (if I remember correctly, that is - don't quote me on that).

I'm almost sure the developers are already incorperating this update into there roms for updates. And if not looking for a way to root the new OTA. At least I'm hoping so lol, either way I'm not losing root for such few upgrades & bugfixes and I'm damn sure not bothering someone going through the trouble of chef'ing up roms for me for free haha.

I used my original unlock_code.bin. But this phone is picky. To unlock I had to boot into bootloader while the phone is off in order for it to unlock. You must boot into HBOOT when the phone is off. I wouldn't just go jumping in and trying it unless you wouldn't mind locked until a way is discovered.

I've looked this over for a while now and I'm sorry to report it's out of my league.

Same here. OTA is safe to do as long as you already did the unlock previously!!!!

I'm not going back to stock for such a trivial update. There's really nothing in there that screams at me to bother with that much work.
