I GOT MY OTA 2.1UPDATE TODAY YAY not thanks motor when the update rumors were not true the first time I was dissatisfied but this time I'm pissed moto sucks
Well honestly I think they were actually ready to give us the update. I don't think Moto "jumped the gun" at all. I believe the only reason the update was yanked and pushed back was from all the *****ing people were doing at them for not putting in 2.1 launcher and live wallpapers and crap like that.
Anyone that saw how freaking childish people were on the moto facebook page as well as even this site in regards to not having everything that was in the nexus 2.1 rom in our upcoming update should have no problem seeing why moto decided to pull it. I would pull it too if my customers acted like that over, what at the start were unconfirmed rumors from endgadget from unknown or confirmed sources.
Heck reading that poor companies facebook page I fully expected people to start carpooling to their headquarters with pitchforks and torches.... semi joking.. some people are a little over the top
I also heard rumor that there was indeed a few 2.1 pushes done and it resulted in several supposedly bricked phones? I don't remember where I saw that to confirm anything. It could be people that were running custom roms with ota not blocked for some reason. Perhaps they want a way to OTA regardless of what hacks people have done and push everyone to stock?
We'll just have to wait and see. In the meantime there are plenty of awesome 2.0.1 roms if you are willing to mess with your phone as well as 2.1 roms that work fairly decently, if not entirely stable. Aside from bug fixes and some tweaks there really isn't anything that good in the update that really people need to get so upset. I mean my god people want live wall papers that badly? They look cool but bleh and the 2.1 launcher is ok when it's not buggy, but it's not any better than the one we have on 2.0.1, just different. I actually prefer the old one anyway, aside from it's much much faster.
It will come when it comes, take deep breaths and be patient hahaha.
note that isn't really focused on the person i quoted. it's kind of a blanket statement from observations on various pages, moto facebook, this forum and some others... lots of violent people all over, kinda scary really.
hmm true, but do we know who actually pulled this? moto is just as capable of pulling the update back from verizon if they found a bug or as the case may be a huge mob of angry people screaming at them..... I don't know what if any programming verizon does at all. I think all they do is test and push. Edit2: or could be verizon upper level people saw the mob on motos door and decided ..... hey maybe we should have them add that stuff in. I'm sure vz does not want to deal with that kind of fallout of angry peopleWhen will you folk get it through your thick heads that Verizon is going to delay the update, not Motorola?
Moto cannot make VZW release it.
