There's an official T-Mobile update available as of this morning. It's over 40MB in size (pretty sure) so I'm imagining It's chock full of goodies.

I can't install it until I get home and defrost some bloat, so does anyone else wanna give it a shot?

I'll give it a shot. It says security and optimizations. DLing now.

EDIT: Looks like an update to Wifi calling.
EDIT2: New radio too: 11.59.3504.00_11.16.3504.20_2
Build: 1.55.531.3

Seems like the big weather widget is now missing the awesome graphics/animation?

Edit: also a BIG word of warning... Revolutionary is saying the new HBOOT is NOT supported at this time.

There was a bump in the kernel version.... but there's nothing in the release notes that would indicate what's changed there. They only mention netflix improvements, Google security fixes, WiFi calling improvements, and something else so minor I've forgotten it already.

yep, it's 43.2 MB, but definitely not ICS. will have to play with it to see if anything feels or looks different. i have attached the OTA package for anyone who'd like to have a look at it :)

Looks like a lot of the stock ringtones are gone . I never rooted my phone..i only know they are gone becaise it put my ringtone as tmobile jingle. The one I use is gone.

Thanks for posting about this, and I really appreciate that the update has been provided so people can get it.

I am downloading the update now from yogi2010's dropbox - i'll see what I can find when I break it open after the download finishes.

I just woke up, so this gets to be the first item on my list.

If there is a new kernel provided, then don't expect to be able to open that up and scan for changes - but otherwise i'll see what I can find out and report back.

First impressions: wow, they made tiny changes to just about everything in the system.

I am going to focus first and foremost on the GPS changes they made - looks like they updated the SUPL certification, the GPS lib file - I need to find out what they did. They probably made it look like the GPS changes I made, but I never edited the SUPL certification file so expect an update to my GPS patch (probably) when I figure it all out.

I am also concerned about what they did with the bluetooth stuff - they updated the blacklist and also all of the Bluetooth files on the device.

If anyone applied the update, can you check and see if all of your bluetooth devices work?

I am half tempted to apply the update to one of my MT4GS phones, but I'm afraid of bricking it trying to go back after I sort through it all - writing the Radio is where you can brick your phone and that I would have to do ... so looks like i'll be figuring out how to decompile some of these update files and note the changes.

If anyone has any information to share about the update, please post it here.

the reason i was kind of a proponent of the first update was because there were changes to a LOT of things, even tho the size of the package was small. still, i myself don't know what was changed, if anything.

do you think the fact the HBOOT read the original PC59IMG.zip on my sdcard, and asked me to update, means that we can still go back to what we had before?

unfortunately no bluetooth devices here but will report back later about GPS.

Probably - I may very well end up trying later but don't hold your breath. I might apply it to my phone that I bought with my plan so that I can take it back to T-Mo and force them to give me another one because their update broke it.

It kinda is special to me, being my first smartphone ever, so I don't want to part with it, but if I can't figure it all out i'm not so sentimental that i'll let that impede progress.

-also -

If anyone does flash this, some of the files that were removed with Undeadk9's security patch - and are also removed in my ROM, are put back onto the phone - most notably QXDM2SD.apk that I have seen thus far - this will have to be removed again if the update is flashed to prevent logging activities.

I have no idea what Smith.apk is - so decompiling and looking through that after I finish typing this out.

I'll keep people updated as I go through it.

    Fantastic!

    Can you post a step-by-step for others who come behind while it's still fresh in your mind?

    This post of yours I quoted is probably the most important one in this thread.

    sure Blue, it is pretty much the usual...


    To undo the update/restore the stock firmware that came with the phone:

    (Note: this will only work if you are still S-OFF even tho you have the new HBOOT version. If you are S-ON with the new HBOOT, then at this time there is no known way to revert... hopefully we can get the devs. of Revolutionary, etc, to update the root methods. Also, if you want to update just to check it out, make sure to turn S-OFF first if you'd like to give yourself the option to revert later.)

    1. Download the stock firmware package from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1178082

    2. Rename it PG59IMG.zip and put it on the root of your sdcard.

    3. Boot into the bootloader('adb reboot bootloader' or power down the phone then hold volume down + power), let it read the update package, and press 'volume up' to update when prompted.

    4. At the end it will prompt you to press Power to reboot. It scared me because when i pressed Power, the screen went off and seemed to not come back on, so i pressed power once again, and it booted into the system.

    That's it! Just remember that if you do this, it will of course erase all your data... your phone will be like it was out of the box.
