If rooted and update OTA happens will we receive? EDIT See post #10
Probably a noob question and maybe this has been answered before, but if I'm rooted and IF???? there is an OTA update will our rooted Fascinate be able to receive the update?
This is of course a question based on if there really will ever be an update!
I have a Dinc also and having the Froyo on that device make it truly missed on my Fascinate.
Thanks in advance.
EDIT - Please see my post on #10 :icon_evil:
So I'm still confused but lets see what happens
From the above posts I'm really not sure what to expect. January 10th is the new update supposedly! I'm really not holding my breath. I probably will not be looking at my device that day as "we (OREGON)" are playing Auburn in the BCS...GO DUCKS. :icon_ banana:
I have to say with all the new devices that Sammy is putting to the market and if they just forget the "S" series updates then I'm done with anything Samsung.
That's it, done even if their products shine there is a frustrations level that's...
well you all know. :icon_evil::icon_evil::icon_evil::icon_evil::icon_ evil:
OTA from Verizon still in testing - may never happen???
I wrote a fairly nasty letter to Verizon a few days ago and this is Verizon's response. I'll let you all draw your conclusions but I'm thinking this is not on Sammy's list of things to take care of after all the new devices at CES (not just phones either). We all may be stuck with a "new antique" with our Fascinates. If 2.2 does get the OTA I'll be thrilled but I'm thinking of switching phones and going to Sprint sooner rather than later.
