good job miami...now if we are on froyo do we need to wipe data and cache....
Great Miami. Thanks going to download now!
Installing now. i love update.zip formats. does wifi work on this rom?
I just tried without wiping and got stuck in a boot loop. Will wait to see if anyone figures out how to do it without a wipe. Otherwise I need to set some time aside for this :)

Only thing that worries me hoever is my Droid didn't react well to the LV kernal, so if anyone else out there wants to try first ... I might have to wait until it is avail without the LV ...
I have ti DL'd now and the backup is compltete.
BTW, how can I remove backups I made previously from the SD?
great new! Are there any new aspects to this official leak as oppose to the frf57 version that got leaked sometime ago...other then maybe being more stable? Thanks again miami!
More Froyo...I nominate Miami for The Years Biggest PITA award.
Again if you are coming from a froyo build a wipe may not be in order. I recommend you wipe though. Start fresh it can't hurt. This is going to be ther last leak and im told the official VZW file
i wiped data cach 3 times lets see what happens
