Looks like we are finally gonna get the official GB update.
It will start pushing the 20th but as of the 17th you can manually update by going to MENU>SETTINGS>SYSTEM UPDATES>HTC SOFTWARE UPDATE

Well yes if you install the OTA .. No if you wait for the great Devs to make a stock rooted ROM

Thanks for the heads up. It's about time they said something. Sounds good, but I'll wait till our Devs get there hands on it. Don't want the same issues some people are having with the EVO 4G update. Don't want to lose root, and have to wait.

Actually the EVO 4G owners are getting an update to fix the GB issues the same date that the Shift is getting the GB update

Netflix works for me and I've been on 2.3.4 for a while now. What I want is an updated kernel source for our devs to play with. Remember, HTC is listening. Tweet, Facebook, email them or whatever and ask that they please release the source

Yes, but if you do the OTA and have the new HBOOT you have to wait to root. I'd raher just wait for the Devs.

Also, looks like updates could be pushing out as early as the 17th

i'm running GB shift deck ROM and the android version already says 2.3.4... is there a reason why we would want to update via OTA if we already have that version?
