HTC Rezound and Droid Incredible 2 getting a small 'Device Enhancement' update

Don't hold your breath, HTC had never provided a detailed changelog on any of their updates. I just don't understand the secrecy my self.

I suspect an "enhancement" that either furthers the effort to prevent rooting the phone, or one that makes it harder to revert back to stock... Anything the opposite of providing ICS, and that nearly 6 months later than the late date of end of August anyway. I rooted a long time ago, but it's the principle of the thing. That reason alone is why I don't want an HTC phone again anytime soon. This update should fall very short of the promised bar.

Stick a fork in this under appreciated phone (the Rezound, but both were neglected). Verizon nor HTC gave them a fair shake so move on like I did & probably most other customers. Buy direct from Google & get a Straight Talk SIM (or some other prepay of your choice) & enjoy true freedom with your device.

:sigh
Bloatware which can be disabled in any device running Android 4.0 or above, without root or any sort of hacking. You've claimed to be "in the know when it comes to technology", and yet you still don't get tis very basic fact, even after my telling you so for over a year.

That is a problem on mine as well. I can click the button to add a city, but when I search, nothing happens.

Glad to know I'm not alone, I've noticed the same thing. I had other cities in there, so it must have worked at some point.

I just received my update and now I do not have root access anymore. Not sure whether I will have to go through the whole mambo-jambo again or just need to run su. Will update after lunch.

Is lunch 3 days long? Lol they're trying to push this update to my phone today, and I'm curious, were you able to get root again?? Thanks!
