 Currently, we do not believe that there is a "safe" mechanism to upgrade the WiMAX firmware without taking the official OTA.  We advise against applying any "WiMAX-only" ''update.zip'' files to your phone. Currently, we do not believe that there is a "safe" mechanism to upgrade the WiMAX firmware without taking the official OTA.  We advise against applying any "WiMAX-only" ''update.zip'' files to your phone.
  
-The only fix right we have tested ourselves at this time is to restore a backup of the WiMAX partition that taken before applying the OTA.  We strongly urge users not to further experiment with the WiMAX partition on their devices; doing so may result in damage to your phone or your phone being permanently banned from Sprint's network.  Over the coming week, we hope to be able to work with Sprint to come to a resolution; without this, however, no safe solution is in sight.+The only fix right we have tested ourselves at this time is to restore a backup of the WiMAX partition taken //from the same device// before applying the update.  We strongly urge users not to further experiment with the WiMAX partition on their devices; doing so may result in damage to your phone or your phone being permanently banned from Sprint's network.  Over the coming week, we hope to be able to work with Sprint to come to a resolution; without this, however, no safe solution is in sight.
  
 We apologize profusely for the trouble this has caused you.  We do our best to quality-check every file that we publish before we publish it; in this case, none of our testers reside in 4G service areas, and so none of our testers could verify the WiMAX upgrade's functionality. Obviously, this was insufficient. In the future, we will not include radio updates of any kind without fully testing on a variety of devices. We apologize profusely for the trouble this has caused you.  We do our best to quality-check every file that we publish before we publish it; in this case, none of our testers reside in 4G service areas, and so none of our testers could verify the WiMAX upgrade's functionality.
