    Has there been any hint of any shred of new information on the release of GB on the D2G? Its killing me. I work with Google on technical support for the eBooks, and I haven't heard anything from them... but maybe just maybe it will release soon! Damn u Motorola! GB is already ready to go ( we all know it ) and we just need moto to release it! Enough of the waiting game... I really just need to go to an HTC, or Samsung... basically a flagship device...

    They lost a loyal customer.

    Verizon's website is making it seem like you can update today.

    To the best of my knowledge you will need to unroot first.

    And then, for now, stay unrooted as there is currently no root for the OTA update.

    right now, it seems only a select people are getting the update, but once it rolls out to everyone, all you need to do is make sure you have all the stock apps and have the phone unrooted, my suggestion is that you sbf to get the update.

    yeah, an sbf returns your phone to its factory state, essentially how it came out of the box, so it will be unrooted and un-bootstrapped, i think were all hoping to be a part of the soak test, but im sure that once the soak test begins, it will only be a matter of days until its rolled out to everyone else.

    i would normally complain about GB not being rooted but to be honest, i dont care! im just glad to finally have it. and its one step closer to Ice cream Sandwich. i hope it improves the UI mainly and the battery; with Angel Rom, i have been able to increase my battery by 30%



    also on a side note how does one get an image into the signature?

    ***EDITED FOR LANGUAGE***
    lol oops i forgot

    From what I've read, the changes aren't that interesting save for it being 2.3 (new icons and theme? Lol)...
