HTC Rezound Getting OTA Update, Improves Stability
Verizon began to roll out a new update to the HTC Rezound a few days ago.

According to the official documentation, the new update bring the software version to 2.01.605.11, baseband to 0.95.00.1118r, and the following changes:
- Updated signal strength meter to 5 bar Received Signal Strength Indication (RSSI).

- Resolved issue with Task Manager stopping Mail background service.
Even better, there’s no reason to hold back on this OTA update since it has already been rooted – a forum thread details the process. Alternatively, you flash a pre-rooted stock ROM with the OTA cooked in.
