    Before I even knew there was a software update I wanted to restore my Sensation to factory defaults. Then I read this thread and forced it to check with no luck. I went ahead and restored it to factory defaults and then checked for the update and it came up immediately.

    Soooooo…if you want the update now, restore to factory defaults. It worked for me

  • wildman69

    Install took about 5minutes with a couple of reboots,
    its 2.3.4 software number 1.45.531.1

    Netflix prompted for an update, and works perfectly. Still have the old market, hope it updates soon.
