    must be a change

    Well there must be a change because the leak has the version being 2.3.9 this one is 2.3.15... The baseband is also 01.09.07 and the leak was 01.09.06... while it could be different by just the number. i guess tomorrow we will find out if this is the same as the leak just a different number.

    of course its different from the leak, the leak dropped like a month or more ago and it was most likely a beta version for testers and they fixed bugs that they found, thus new versions

    Don't mean to be a pessimist, but it will be interesting to see if they botched Exchange security policies as badly as they did in the Droid 1 frg22d patch.

    I was just wondering when this update would be out.

    Got on the forums specifically to see if there is anything new with the leaked/released since the last time I tried them.

    Hopefully it does come out tomorrow, and that it's still rootable.

    I'm gonna wait a little bit before I wipe the leak and update. I want to see how buggy this final update may be and I know that the OTA update wont be immediately available to me after I reflash back to 2.1. Especially if they update so many at a time. This has taken way to long, but I guess the end of summer means the last day literally.

    I'm with you on this one but I know Moto stopped handing out licenses to Touchdown so maybe or maybe not who knows. I guess we'll know in a few hours...

    Congrats on the baby thing! I was spoiled, I was stationed in Korea when my first kid was born and wasn't home until he was 4 months old and then I left for my last tour in Iraq when my second child was only 3 weeks old. Now that I am home and out of the Army my kids are 5 years old and 4 years old so I missed all those mid-night feedings and whatnot!! LOL dancedroid

    I'm just curious, would people have been so negative if Motorola hadn't said anything at all about updating to 2.2 and then one day just sent out a press release saying they were starting to update "tomorrow"? Is it the wait, the false rumors, or the need for new features that has our world up in arms?

    I had the first Android phone, the t-mobile g1, and I had no idea the first update was supposed to come out. I was at a party and got the push notification. I downloaded it and installed it and couldn't believe that they'd added the touch keyboard and video capture for the camera and other things.

    Ignorance really IS bliss. If you don't know it's eventually coming, you have nothing to worry about waiting for.

    For me, it is the new features. I'm not "up in arms" over the delay of the release. I rather wait for a release to be fully tested and after the mess that occured during the D1's update that I read about on here, hopefully Moto and VZW have all the bugs worked out. I think the other thing that may of gotten people mad is that when this device was announced, Moto and VZW made a big deal about 2.2 coming to the device shortly following the release of the device and in the greater few of things, a few months for an update to come out is not that bad. I support all the mobile communications for my company and we have many people using a BlackBerry Curve 8520 on T-Mobile and that device is still running 4.6! Now that is a delay in an update LOL.
