Have you ever fucking learned to communicate normally with people that you might not agree with? What's this for shit? To answer your rudely formed question: Yes, I have checked the site, I know how they fixed it and I was (up untill I sold the phone yesterday) running his FW. Why are you asking? I STILL expect a fucking (we are appearantly in Pulp Fiction mode because I appearantly said something REALLY bad that started that off) firmware from HTC. Since I bought the phone from them. I shouldn't be required to install an SDK and run recovery images just to get a fw with less bugs in it. For example the Location update bug that slows down the phone to a crawl within 2 days, fixed in 1.6 months ago.
Your inability to cope with four letter words aside, I really don't know what the fuck you're talking about. To install my updates I put the .zip on the drive and pushed the buttons it told me to. Easiest firmware update I think I've ever done.
They don't control the "goddamn radios"? I never bought the phone from any operator, I just bought it from HTC. It's not locked nor branded, it has a HTC logo on the back. How does that have anything to do with the "goddamn radios"? HTC is offering a newer firmware on their site as a download, that you can apply only with a Windows PC. Just as with less-official firmware, you don't need OTA updates to get updates.
OK so what's your fucking problem then? You complained because they didn't give you the firmware, and now you point out that the firmware is on their site. Were you talking about before 1.6 was released? You know HTC doesn't design the firmware either right? You know who the fuck MAKES Android, right?
Luckily we have you on to be the well informed guy that can help me out with some friendly advise.

If the CEO of a company that I'm a customer or user off says something, I note that as company policy. He's the CEO. He decides. If his views are not at all like mine, then I stop using them. That's what I did. You're free to use whatever phone you want.
Just trying to protect yourself from your own rabid overreactions.
