PCD has posted the official release of the first maintenance release for the Verizon HTC Touch Pro.
The firmware that we posted last week was officially approved, but a last-minute bug was discovered in the GPS system. Hence, PCD has released this firmware update as MR1 v2.0.
You can download the firmware from the page linked below. As before, you will need a Windows XP or Vista computer to install the update. If you install the update we posted previously, we encourage you to update again to MR1 2.0.
Update: The saga continues. PCD has pulled MR1 v2.0 from their web site, with no reason given. We’ll follow up once there is an explanation from PCD. At this time, we have no choice but to assume both MR1 updates have some issue, and advise against updating. Unfortunately, nobody from HTC, Verizon, nor PCD has provided any comment on the situation.
Update 2: Without any notice, PCD has placed MR1 v2.0 back online for download, at the link above. The date on the release has changed to 06-11-2009. We are unable to confirm at press time if this is the same MR1 v2.0 released yesterday (and then pulled). Even more inexplicably, PCD has declined multiple opportunities for comment on the matter.
