As yogi pointed out, this is indeed not the latest OTA released for the device. I'm fairly certain that the linked rom is just stock + security update.

Additionally, here's the latest from T-Mobile:

Beginning January 9, the T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide update to version 1.55.531.3 has been paused. HTC has stated they paused the update to improve performance on the new software version.

You cannot download the update manually nor receive it as an OTA. There is not yet a date that the update will resume.

We will update this page immediately when more information is available.

Awesome! Running 1.55.531.3, and fully rooted! Thanks for the Tip!

I'm quite happy running just the Stock ROM. I feel I have a better experience if I go stock and apply my own tweaks

Yeah, I think the stock ROM runs great, and especially with the latest update. What kind of tweaks do you do, if I may ask? Haha

Yeah, I saw that they pulled the update. I'm hoping they did it to fix the bootloader unlocking problem.... it wouldn't seem that there is anything seriously wrong with the update, since it is running beautifully otherwise

Nothing too crazy... Mostly remove TONS of bloat and apps... pretty much anything that won't crash the phone I've uninstalled, then went through and replaced most of the functional apps. I'll list what I've replaced below.

Rosie Launcher replaced with GoLauncher
Sense Lockscreen replaced with WidgetLocker
HTC Messaging app replaced with GoSMS
HTC Weather app replaced with BeWeather
HTC Browser replaced with Miren Browser
PicoTTS replaced with SVOX Classic (Grace)
HTC Music replaced with Spotify/Winamp

Also applied my own Splash and Boot/Shutdown Animations. And made genius button a search button.

That's cool, that's nothing too crazy I guess, but it's practically a custom ROM. Lol.

Yeah, I don't get it...

I rooted and [lightly] de-bloated my OTA build; based on the above list dansl might as well flash one of Undead's roms.

It takes all kinds...

Ha, i guess it is quite an overhaul... But a lot of the other roms do a lot of changes in the framework and seem to cause instability, I've kept mine minor and have never had any issues or crashes. :P

It worked for me. I had to use the trackball to use the recovery options. When I would press the power button I would get
a picture of a guy with a M on his shirt. Just a word of caution.
Thank you OP you saved my phone.

I'm on the last step to unlock my bootloader but for some reason the unlock bootloader disclaimer isn't showing up on my phone and I've done everything on my command prompt correct. Can anyone help me?
