    On 3, no notification, read the post two up and did my own check through the System settings, currently downloading.

    Just updated too.

    I thought the keyboard changed in this version? Should it have?

    Anyone? Am I missing something?

    Also, when you type a word and it gives you the spelling options, you select one then keep typing. How (if you can) go back to the work and have the options of which one it was again?

    I love the new update. Changed a few misc things which is awesome. Also battery at 60% after 21 hours. Usually it'll be at ~30-40%. WOot

    Got OTA updated now.
    Had root on the phone, but no S-off.. Hence result is now it has no root.
    Seem there's no downgrade for 2.37 yet either... FML:tongue:

    Updated to MIUI 1.6.3 last night on my Inspire 4G, I like it so far.

    Haven't had much of a chance to play around with it yet, but there are some pretty cool features in this ROM like the toggle screen in the second picture.

    Looks extremely good! What mounts did you get? Can't find the Inspire 4G or Desire HD on their list...

    I just updated mine aswell. I had to go to settings and check for the update.

    Its 100mb if anyone is wondering. I havent played with it too much as yet, but the new home screen / style is nice. :)

    My fiancee has one of these through Vodafail with a stock ROM/radio. The stock SMS app has started freezing with a white screen/loading animation so she can't send any SMSs. I've looked on the google for answers. A few people have experienced the same issue, but there doesn't seem to be any fix. Has this happened to anyone here or does anyone know how to fix it? Would a custom ROM have the same issues? Maybe I should encourage her to let me flash it with something else.

    If you are planning to flash then make sure not to do the OTA update. The OTA is version 2.37, which there are no root or downgrade currently available...

    Does this phone support 5Ghz wifi-n?
    I have the phone, but not a 5Ghz AP to check.

    I found that as well, but that doesn't say what frequency of "n" the phone supports. For example, AFAIK, iPhone 4 only supports the 2.5GHz frequency of the "n" band, not the 5GHz.

    Since the last update, (about two weeks ago) I've had issues with the standard browser closing itself and on re entering it being faced with the std 3 home page rather then the page I was looking at.

    Today, while reading Engadget, I find that someone's had an OTA update for their DHD for 2.3. I checked my Settings and found an update there as well.

    Currently downloading it. Hopefully it fixes my browser issue, and it's 2.3 and not something else.

    *Edit - It's been updated to Build version 2.37.861.8. Android version is 2.3.3, HTC Sense version is 2.1.

    Immediate obvious change is the up arrow that gives access to widgets has been changed to be a grid. An on pressing it three buttons show up down the bottom, one for all apps, one for frequent and one for downloaded.

    Sort of answer my own question, Tried the iPhone 3GS headset on the DHD yesterday. The middle button works, but not the other two. Microphone and earphone works perfectly.
    Ended up buying Etymotic HF-2 (1 button) instead of the UE, waiting for delivery now.
