    I just checked my updates and it shows available update to Froyo xxxxx.6 from xxxxx.3. Before i do the update just wanted to see if anyone has done it yet.

    Are there any new bug's or does it fix any old one's

    I dont think i can stop myself from pushing the button.

    Let us know what the new update has done for you

    My buddy did the update last night and said there is no noticeable difference. I'm going to wait until root is available before I make any move, just in case its the .3 version that gets rooted. If its the .6 version then I'll update and then root.

    NOPE! No root for Froyo yet. It's being worked on, but if you have 2.2 and are not rooted, you still have to wait a bit.

    Good news! The Kernel Source code came out today for 2.2.

    From several articles, it seems that the update is for people that did an advance update by downloading the update from the HTC servers before the OTA was out. Since the one from the servers was not ready for release, this patches it to be current.

    I am on .6. I got the OTA update when it was announced and .6 is the version I got, so I also think the new update is for those who downloaded .3.

    I have noticed no issues with the new version.
    I gave my iPhone to my 5 year old and got an EVO.

    I'm sure that a few devs are working hard at it, and I have the utmost confidence that they'll root it soon. Not even gonna guess a time frame, just gonna sit back and wait patiently.

    The unrevoked team had been tied up with "Forever", so now that they've got it released, they should start working on rooting 2.2 also. Right now its still a matter of finding an exploit that will work on 2.2. I'm sure it won't be much longer before someone finds a hole in the wall.
