    Ugh, I don't believe any of these rumors. I will believe it when I see it.

    Same here! Plus I find it ridiculous that the only major improvement with this update is bluetooth, but no EVDO RevA which was promised when the Mogul launched

    I too will not hold my breath for this update. It would have been nice to get Rev. A and GPS with this update, but it looks like a slim to none chance of this happening.

    This would be a welcome update as I have been having quality issues with my bluetooth car kit that hopefully this update will fix. It is the same issue as I have read elsewhere, the caller on the other end says I sound like I have a bad cell signal even though I have 3 to 4 bars. Hopefully not just a rumor. I may try to do some digging to see what I can find from my Sprint rep, but usually the reps are the last to know about this type of stuff.

    Well their are some custom ROMS out there, most use the newer Alltel WM6 ROM which seems to make the BT preform better. Like dcd's clean ROM I have been running the last few days with pretty good success. :D

    I downloaded the update, but I won't be able to install it until later tonight since I don't have time now. Be sure to back up all of your data since this hard resets your device. Still no Rev. A or GPS support with the update.

    Well I updated my Mogul with the latest rom. I am reloading my programs onto my phone right now and will test out the bluetooth in a little while.

    UPDATE:

    The bluetooth range is better for me and I hear less static when I am further away from my phone while using my Motorola H700 BT headset. Also, the volume through the BT headset sounds louder. I will test further tomorrow when in my car while driving on the interstate.

    I am getting ready to update mine now. However, mine has had problems coming out of sleep mode with the current ROM. It has not locked up in just normal operation though which is a pleasant change from the 6700 so hopefully it won't lock up that bad!

    I have the Mogul from Sprint and the Motorola H800 (Slider) and I just did the update. Still no bluetooth functionality. It will pair but when I try to use it the phone locks up and I can't hear anything on it/or them hear me. Can anyone please HELP!!!! I don't want to call and have an insurance replacement but it may boil down to that. Thanks in advance for any help.

    I experianced the samething a couple of times yesterday just after I installed the new update. But I haven't had any more/other isses since.


    The only things I can recommend are. A: hard reset B: reinstall the ROM C: revert back to the older ROM

    I have not experienced any lock ups with my Mogul yet.

    I will post some more later today after I had tested the bluetooth while driving on the interstate (the volume before the update was low and it was hard to hear someone) to see if the volume and reception has been improved.

    Ok so I have not had any luck with this ROM. Here are the things that have happened so far:

    - several times when hitting the "Windows" key and then I can't navigate with the "Navigation" pad. Try to go up and down no luck. This goes away after I put it to sleep and wake it back up
    - The screen was messed up once. About a quarter of an inch at the top was just black. A soft reset fixed this.
    - worst of all, the bluetooth with my car kit is worse! It doesn't seem to pair as quickly as before and when I recieve a call and click to answer, the car kit takes over (mutes the radio and number displayed on radio) however the call is still going through the phone's ear piece.

    I have been trying to narrow down these but can't seem to find any pattern. I will give it a few more days and then I may try one of the custom ROM's. And if those don't work out, I guess it's back to the original which was pretty stable.

    wow. I havent had nearly that many issues.

    My only issue with the new ROM right now is the roaming issue. Other than that, I'm in the clear. I actually just got my GPS unit today and it works nicely with the mogul.

    I have the BT problem when BT is on (not paired) and device goes to sleep. Once turned on my d-pad dose not work. Also I had the same issue when using the device lock program from xda developers as it turned off my screen when using A2DP. :(

    I would not recommend installing this ROM!!! I really hope Sprint & HTC get this cleared up very soon.

    These HTC devices are fun to tweek and mod, but their are a pain when they are your main & only phone and have issues like these. I am very tempted to activate my Moto Q and put my Mogul on my backup line untill these problems get cleared up by HTC or from the forum gurus. :)

    I agree with Budney, if you have not upgraded yet, DON'T. I just reflashed my phone with the same update to see if that resolves anytthing. I am not putting any 3rd party software on it either. I am going to monitor it for a couple of days and hopefully it will work itself out.

    I did the samething, but nothing changed. This ROM causes more problems then it fixes. :(

    Yup, so far locked up 2 times and could not get it out of sleep 2 times. I miss my stable Mogul! However the navigational pad issue has not returned which leads me to believe it may have been the X button software causing it. I will probably reflash the original ROM back on it. Hopefully I will get my stable Mogul back.

    My mogul is stable and running just the way I want it to on the newest ROM




    all I have to do to keep it stable is NOT ROAM and keep it set to sprint only. hopefully a fix will be found soon.

    Does anyone know if the update that was posted on the HTC site had the Rev A update? If not, do you think when they re-post the update it will have it?

    The rumors are that the next update will have RevA, as it was mentioned for a 1Q release before the last so called update.
