    I believe (let me know if I'm wrong) the link I provided also provides a link to a stock EE4 ROM that you can flash back to using the same method that you flash a leaked version. Though I don't know for sure, I'd be willing to bet that the leaked versions can't get the OTAs because they are most likely marked as beta versions, so everyone has been planning to flash back to a stock Froyo and then updating forward once Gingerbread or ICS come out.

    I have given up waiting for Gingerbread to be released as an OTA. I flashed the EP3H ROM and all is well.

    No, Gingerbread has not yet been released to the Charge.

    And 2.4 doesn't exist - the jump will be made from 2.3.5 (which is the version the Charge will get next) to 4.0 (the highest the 2.x go is 2.3.7 before 3.x, which is tablet-only Android, begins)

    Ice Cream Sandwich, or Android 4.0, will most likely be released to the Charge, but it remains unseen how long that will take - I doubt they skip the Gingerbread update in favor of ICS altogether, but I can't imagine it takes longer than June 2012 to see ICS pushed to all Droid Charges.

    I see someone wrote that gingerbread is being pushed out again for the Thunderbolt, maybe now they can release ours.

    Two questions.
    1. What guide are you looking at?
    2. Define "confusing".

    I was lookin at the rootzwiki guide. I get that u download odin and the zip for ep3ha. Do i have to download modems and roms too? I just want a debloated gingerbread. This stock lags so is a voodoo lagfix incorporated in it as well?

    Yeah. As "reliable" as the source is, the manager of my local verizon store said end of November

    Forget that, I will root if not out by the weekend. My phone is getting slower and slower.

    I would recommend it. Pretty easy to do and i was against tooting it for a long time, glad i took the jump though. The phone just responds a lot better now

    My co-worker came in this morning with a new LG Marquee he got as a freebie when his wife bought an Evo. It's a cheapie little phone. I checked and it's running Gingerbread 2.3.4.! :blink:

    you dont have to root to flash the "leaked" files (common misconception)

    on a side note,
    i would like to apologize for previously stating the gb ota would be out by the end of sept.
    my source, who previously relayed reliable information, has totally tanked the past 2 months with all his insight.
    i think he got caught with his hand in the cookie jar one too many times, unfortunately, at our expense.

    on another note,
    i dont think sammy is to blame, as you have seen, many good updates have been made, vzw is the one who has the final say on when to let it out, the longer they wait the more updates sammy makes.
    makes it look like a sammy issue, but it is really vzw holding them back.
    sammy keeps improving, even though vzw is holding them back, its a testament to sammys dedication imo

    Can you explain or attach a link that can explain how to flash 2.3.5 without rooting?
