    Mines not rooted and it still tells me I'm up to date on 2.1. Sounds like the marketing got ahead of the reality.

    The schedule date is tomorrow 9/22. Just a quick question, will the update be a clean install and wipe out everything?

    I have Version 2.3.9...when this update thats coming is 2.3.15...

    Since mine is the leaked version I have been told that I wont be able to update OTA...since the update coming is a newer version than mine, shouldnt I still be able to update it?

    maybe not at that URL, but that information has been up for a few weeks

    source? AFAIK it shouldn't wipe out everything

    no. moto has blocked the OTA for rooted devices and those running leaked OSs. It has nothing to do with newer/older

    Do you personally know of an easy way for me to get back to 2.1 stock so I can get the official update?

    EDIT: Im not rooted with the leaked version....

    A manual update will be available within 2 hours of the actual release that won't require rooting so don't fret.

    I wouldn't bet heavilly on that, this is not like the manual OTA updates for the Droid 1. Unless someone comes up with a miracle in the next day or so you will have to go back to stock 2.1 with ALL Bloatware installed , ie. 100% pure stock 2.1 system as shipped to apply this update, no matter if you get it OTA or manually download the file from where ever.

    There is already a "leak" of 2.3.15 (the confirmed official update)...BUT due to the Bootloader limitations this type of leak can only update the system area. So you will not get the new kernel, Radio, etc that is part of the OTA release (in other words the "engine" of the release)...this can only happen with true bootloader access via an Offical Update....at the moment.

    So unless someone has a trick up their sleeve I am not aware off (I wish/hope I am wrong), you will have to revert back to the "as shipped" 2.1 Software to even be able to install the Official Froyo, no matter OTA or Manual...otherwise the upate will fail to install.

    Of course we could get lucky and Moto/VZ changed their mind at the last moment and modded the update to allow it to install over "non-stock" software....but I ain't gonna hold my breath on that one....but it would be cool if they did.

    I too have the non-rooted 2.2 leaked version. Has anyone posted a "how-to" on going back to the stock 2.1 so I can get future updates?

    no they blocked the people who are running the leaked OS not the ones who are rooted. the update will work for all rooted 2,1 you will lose root though.
