Not sure I'm using the correct terminology there, but I've read that the latest OTA update fixes a bluetooth issue. Was hoping it fixes the issues I've seen with random connection dropping between the phone and my bluetooth piece.

I've also read the new update breaks root as well as several people reporting poor battery performance after updating. So, was curious if anyone has just the bluetooth fix in a flashable file?

If you want to experiment, the second post in my kernel thread has a link to a kernel built using the stock Linux Bluetooth drivers instead of the HTC drivers. I would be curious to know if it fixes your or not problems.

Ah, nice. I will definitely look into it.

Do you know what else that OTA update supposedly fixes?

No idea. Waiting for the kernel source to see if anything was fixed there. No way to tell what they changed outside of the kernel.

oh so that was HTC's doing. I bought a cheap audio dongle to connect my phone to my car stereo and it works great, but every now and then the signal drops, so I chalked that up to my cheap Chinese adapter, not the phone.
