Tip us?

It's supposed to fix the read/write permissions glitch with the MicroSD card.

Let me correct this.. The OTA update did not work.. (I stayed at the old software version after trying to apply it.. but root stayed around..)

NOW has anyone managed to place the SD card fix on here manually?

Default Well i guess I got this all backwards

I didnt know any better when I got the phone in the store, and I did the update...

then decided to root it.... did the process....

it worked.... but then I had the insufficient permissions on the SD card issue...

after reading a bunch of yea's and nay's on OTA update

I finally made the decision to just due the OTA update cuz I that SD card issue really bugged me...

I did the OTA update, the phone did this funny thing where its showing a green progress bar and then in the middle of it, a red question mark pops up as if it were saying " what the hell is this??" lol

it rebooted... and phone came back online, and now my SD card isnt having the same issue anymore...
UPDATE: Its back.... so now what do I do? Is there any way I can include all my info and settings and apps in a custom recovery cuz if i have to do this again im gonna freak. lol

I still haven't gotten the OTA...no matter how many times I manually "check now" in HTC Software Updates, it does not show up. I don't know why this is happening, it's very odd. I'm waiting for someone to cook the update into a custom, or rather stock, ROM. It's driving me insane at the moment, not to mention a bunch of apps are missing from the market (a whole other issue in it's own right). If anyone has an update.zip I can flash or a way to fix this, please please please let me know. Thanks.

I wasn't getting the OTA notification either until I enabled WiFi, then restarted the phone. Worked perfectly after that. Didn't even have to go to system updates.
