    when i updated bugless beast from 0.7.6 to 0.7.8 last week, i noticed my firmware version under "about phone" changed from 2.0.1 to 2.1. now im a little worried, because i dont know if my firmware is actually 2.0.1 and the "2.1" is merely a glitch, or if the phone is actually running 2.1 firmware. (i was under the assumption that i would need to wipe all data to go from 2.0.1 to any rom that was 2.1, and since i never did a wipe, how could i be at 2.1?)

    keep in mind i never received the ota update either.

    can someone put my mind to ease and tell me what route i should go? should i keep updating only 2.0.1 roms, and ignore that my "about phone" screen is declaring firmware at 2.1?

    thanks for your help and time.

    ok, thanks for the response. what im understanding from you is that he changed the firmware version on the surface only, right? the phone is still 2.0.1. so im safe to continue to download 2.0.1 roms?

    seeing that jump made me take a step back, and i dont wanna get back in line without knowing exactly the deal.
