For us Magic users who have rooted our HTC Magics and flashed a new rom on it, would it be mandatory for us to update to their rom?

I was wondering that too. They are saying their are disabling 3G Data on our phones till the upgrade is performed.

I'm afraid it has a perfected SPL.

no need for rooted users to upgrade... i believe the upgrade is just to fix the gps 911 issue. us rooted users dont experience that


Edit: Custom rom users

Yeah that's all fine and nice that we aren't affected with custom ROMs but did you guys not read the fine print?

Customers who have not downloaded this software update could have problems accessing 911. As a result, we are taking the precautionary measure of temporarily disabling internet access for Dream and Magic users on Sunday January 24 at 6:00AM (EST). Voice and text messaging will not be impacted. By disabling internet access, we can ensure that 911 calls are completed for all our Dream and Magic customers. Once a customer completes the software update, his/her internet access will be re-enabled within 24 hours.

I guess we'll have to see HOW they can know that we haven't updated.

Here's a link to the "about" for this version btw: http://www.htc.com/us/img/ca/HTC%20M...9/image001.png

does anyone know if rogers is able to check your build?

becuase in the instruction manual below step 4.

"Refer to the image and note the build number version listed. if you have the same build number version there is no need to update this software."
