Inspire GB update, when?

[ Edited ]

I saw on another board someone saying they have info from somewhere saying today is supposed to be the day. Any idea if that's true? and do we need to click htc wifi update or at&t update to check for it? or does it come through another way?

Re: Inspire GB update, when?

there wasn't a set date, it just said in the 1st weeks of augest i would say this coming tuesday. It will be a at&t update and when you are connected to wifi it will pop up and say "ther is a imporant update for you phone" then you will have GB.

Sorry, I left out the word "is".

 

It appears that this update is anxiously being awaited by some members, but I don't know what it is.

 

Thanks again.

I would NOT advise installing this update, Have spoken with htc about an issue with contacts,messaging apps not working correctly,messaging app only shows numbers and not contacts name for the most part, sometimes it works sometimes it doesnt...was informed there will be another OTA update to resolve this issue...

I wonder if using a 3rd party messaging app solves these issues?  I've been using Chomp SMS for a long time, over the stock client on my HTC phone, because of the much better customization options.  In the past, it seems that using a 3rd party app circumvents various issues with the stock HTC and Google messaging apps.

Its with a few third party as well this is why they are going to probably re issue a OTA with a fixed build....I have no issues with 1.84 build which I was able to get back on my phone after I fought with this glitch for awhile...So there definitely an issue with this new build...which as I said was confirmed by HTC last night during my phone call with them....This release should NOT have been sent out with this type of glitch....Im speaking from a developers standpoint...

I have the 2.3 update and let me say "it rocks."  Haven't had an issue with it at all.  Contacts show up in messaging app and HTC sense works perfectly.  It  may not work for some but  I  can say that it has definitely worked for me.  I am installing it in my daughters and my wife's Inspire.

Forgot to mention. Battery life is awsome.  I am now able to get a full day out of the battery with normal usage where before the update I was charging by lunch time when I unplugged from the charger around 7:30 am.

Re: Inspire GB update, when?

it comes through when you are connected to wifi becasue it does take a few minutes to download.  need to go to the htc wifi update to go through the update.

i love the update so far by the way Smiley Happy

Re: Inspire GB update, when?

Downloaded the update this morning before work while on the home Wi-Fi, then ran the install while in the car driving in to the office. Took about 10 minutes total maybe... Works great. No issue with messaging contacts at all, works just like it always has. My phone had not taken the 3'rd party update after a month and a half of AT&T trying to make it happen (I got tired of waiting rooted and did it myself), but this update went flawlessly. No issues at all, and I beat the heck out of it today.
