    .32 users, you might not know it, but you have a small problem...

    So its finally become apparent that the kernel versions btw .32 and .34 are not the same, despite someone swearing they were and then everyone else saying the same thing just cuz one person said it. Are they the same operationally? Probably. But the version numbers are different, and that's enough to cause compatibility issues for OTA's and maybe even full SBF's (although it's been suggested that full sbf's do not check for specific kernel versions).

    What does this mean? Well, for those of you who upgraded to the leak .32 (bootloader/kernel and all), you can install a .34 rom, it will work fine, and for all operational purposes, you'll be at the same place as people who OTA'd to .34. But what some people on .32 don't realize is that this isn't putting their kernel on the .34 version, only their system. What's it mean? You could have severe problems next time you try to OTA in the future.... BEST CASE scenario is you get "the update failed", rather than a brick.

    So what you .32 users need is a way back to .15, so that you can OTA to .34 and get back on track. A FULL (not system only) .34 sbf might work, assuming (and hoping) that it doesn't check for a specific kernel. But we need to get one in order to test that. Otherwise, you could be looking at a mass bricking for .32 users at the release of gingerbread OTA.

    Can someone who knows P3Droid plz ask him for the way back that he swore he has but that everyone thought we wouldn't need?

    I don't have screens, but you can ask any dev who knows what he's talking about. The kernels have dif version number.

    It would be nice to have actual proof (pictures, quoted conversation...).

    Pictures of what? The Gingerbread OTA failing? I think we'll have to wait on that...

    Quoted conversations with who? Motorola? We know what P3 has said, but until there's a new patch, we won't see any proof. For now it's just speculation, but I would think that having different kernel numbers would be a huge issue when an OTA is going to be looking for a specific one...

    why i stayed away from the leak....and wont update to 2.3.340 until a full SBF is available. Now, if u are a DX user who doesnt care about rooting your phone then go right ahead and not worry....but if u care u r playing with fire till its available. Just my opinion.

    That's what Im talking about, a screenie of the ota kernel and the one users who used the leak are on, or a conversation with a dev showing what the kernel should be.

    ^2x that!

    But it makes sense to me that this situation could occur for .32 users.
    DX on something different too often to keep updating my sig!

    Oh... well this is pretty simple... the kernel for the OTA is:

    2.6.32.9-g55626e1
    w30471@il93lnxdroid08 #1

    I'll look for the .320 kernel...
    Edit: .320 kernel is:

    2.6.32.9-gca645b6

    Here... this took me like 30 sec of looking through recent Droid X threads....

    Probably they are functionally identical but we're going to need a true. 340 full SBF to get back into the Droid X upgrade path... assuming there's a 2.3 in our future.
