HTC takes down latest HD2 SMS Hotfix


It is starting to look like HTC can seem to fix the dreaded SMS-stuck-in-outbox bug on the HTC HD2.The latest Hotfix released a couple of days ago has vanished from HTC’s support site (just like the first one). The latest patch did fix the slow loading bug in the messaging app but the stuck in outbox bug was still present (the first patch didn’t do anything at all). Worst of all, the latest hoxtfix can’t even be un-installed(!). One has to wonder what is going because it has already be proven that the bug is related to HTC’s messaging application/Manila (the bug can be bypassed by using the native WinMo SMS application). One thing I noticed is that when my SMS gets stuck the pinch-zoom feature no longer works in native WinMo apps (see the bug listed here ) which seem to suggest that the SMS bug, the Zoom bug & the Volume Overlay bug are in some way related to each other (Manila.exe memory leak?).

Can you guys try to see if you experience the same problem. Does the pinch-to-zoom feature still work in WinMo’s File Explorer when your SMS gets stuck in the outbox ?

Update: I can confirm that all those issues seem to have some kind of relationship (memory leak? service crash?). The SMS stuck in the outbox isn’t the cause of the problem but a consequence. When pinch-to-zoom no longer works in native apps or volume overlay in the music and HTC Album apps the SMS gets stuck and the Alarms no longer work correctly either. It’s starting to look like there’s some kind of memory leak or a service is crash in the background.

    And also the weather update is related as well..(fail to upload my location weather)..These problems might be strongly related to this fix, coz I never had these problems before installing it…

    Also when the SMS bug occurs, the Alarm function doesn’t work anymore. It only leaves an event on your phone, the sound nor the vibrator goes off.

    Grab .NET Compact Framework 3.5 and BSB Tweaks 1.6 (there’s an option in it to disable HTC’s messaging app).

    If you check the HTC UK site now you will find the NEW SMS Update for HTC HD2 – New SMS Function Update has now been returned & hopefully improved. I’ve only just downloaded it so i will report back in a few days or sooner if my texts still get stuck in out box. Fingers crossed!!!
