    Maybe you can manually do them, but I haven't noticed many update notices coming out once a phone is flashed.

    You will most likely have to reprogram APNs for MMS (perhaps modify or replace the MMS.apk), and if you're on the $45 plan use GreenK45 to install the proxy routing.
    Please check the forum and post there before PMing me. I have over 674 unread PMs due to the fact that they are issues which should have been addressed here.

    I got to looking to see what update it is and its from the HTC Software update .. will this change any of the phone settings..

    HTC Evo Maintenance Release - 4.24.651.1 Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)

    Enhancements/Fixes:

    - SMS are intermittently sent to wrong and seemingly random contact
    - "Me" instead of "Yo" in SMS thread conversations when set to Spanish
    - Unable to stream media thru some applications after updating to 3.70
    - Email attachments are not displayed in the mail client
    - Multiple Gmail accounts no longer sync after FroYo update
    - Fix for battery discharge issue

    - Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)

    - Downloads management- The Downloads application gives the user easy access
    to any file downloaded from the browser, email,or another application
    - Corrects voicemail notification issue (from 4.22.651.2)
    - Corrects issue with hearing aid compatibility menu disappearing (from 4.22.651.2)
    - Netflix compatibility (from 4.22.651.2)

    Important Notes:

    - The new software version is: 4.24.651.1
    - This update should be applied to devices on 4.22.651.2 (Android 2.3 update) and 3.70.651.1 (Froyo)
    Devices on 4.22.651.2 will receive the following message when this update is available “A system upgrade for 2.3 (Gingerbread)

    is available that provides minor software enhancements. Please download and install the following update. System Upgrade 4.24.651.1 (25 MB)”

    - Refer to the HTC EVO Maintenance Release blog for install instructions. When manually trying to initiate the update, you may receive a message that no update is available. Please be patient and check back later, or you may wait until the update is automatically sent to your device.

    Remember that there is no way to root the OTA Gingerbread update for the EVO yet...

    Hey I just got a notice saying "A system upgrade for 2.3 (Gingerbread) is available that provides minor enhancements. Please download and install the following update. System Upgrade 4.53.651.1 (17.01 MB)- FOTA UPDATE"

    what should i do, is it safe to update? or will it mess things up?

    In my mind this could potentially do two things:

    1. Give you a bootloader that revolutionary.io cannot root (if root is important to you)
    2. Do something that will mess up your flash.

    Do this at your own risk. I avoided it and rooted my phone. By using another ROM, that's how I upgraded to 2.3.4.
