    ok i woke up this morning to the official ota update staring at me. I selected remind me later went to petes site and seen the stopota.zip on his home page. I flashed it and seems to have blocked the ota update but has me thinking it is like putting a bandaid on a sore throat. kinda pointless right. just makes me wonder how far behind bb.04 really is because i never seen any official updates until today in all the time i have had my droid. Now where exactly is the official update in my phone so i can extract it i know the stopota is suppose to stop it but why take the chance. Now i would also like to point out for his site not being a replacement for df i sure haven't seen a post from pete on this site since his new site. I personally dont like the new blog he is using it seems to censor postings. if he dont check the post or dont like the post it wont go thru. which to me seems kinda pointless. by no means am "i talking crap about pete i am a big fan of him and his work" and understand that he is juggling alot with his job, school, gf and so on. just hope the new "toys" his new droid and his moms galaxy isnt getting in the way of the new update.<~~~ reason i say is that is all the postings i am seeing lately between his twitter and his blog. I for one am getting tired of installing other roms waiting for the release. Even if he doesn't fully comprehend the total ins and outs his roms are by far superior to the rest.

    impatient to the extreme?
    note: he does this for free for us.
    note2: he said on tuesday that he was learning new things to incorporate to BBv.5
    note3: it's his blog, so he gets rid of the flaming & ignorance.

    i'm waitin too, man. it's got me checking his forum multiple times a day.

    The great thing about opinions is, granted everybody is entitled to their own, nobody else has to agree with it.

    yes he does do this for free for the masses but i have donated to the cause a cpl times . i am not impatient maybe he should figuare a way to block ota updates in the rom. as far as the blog if your gonna be in the public eye you have to accept the good the bad and the ugly. as it is posted by him direct contact to him why block postings. alltho my post finally showed up. it just seems he is moving on to the bbd "bigger better deal" and those of us that like what we got are getting left behind

    and with the interview there was discussion of .06 before .05 is even out

    No one has been left behind, I am still working on the Droid. As far as the patch I made being a "bandaid" it simply replaces some values in the build.prop.

    It may be just me, but this thread seems like that time I was talking about someone at a party and that person walked up behind me and busted me.

    it is just you i have no problems with confrontation and if you read in the beginning post i stated and i quote
    by no means am "i talking crap about pete i am a big fan of him and his work"


    so in short read and fully comprehend before you make a post like this i made the same statement on his blog there was no talking behind his back

    Been using BB roms for months. Pete's gotta take his time. Perfection isn't instant gradification. In the mean time, try UD 6.0, It's awsome. New toys and tricks. When Pete's new one comes out, switch back and you'll know how to use all the new cool things Pete puts into his roms! Patient Grasshoppers!:):)

    I was under the impression that clockwork or spr would automatically fail on the installation thereby not needing a patch? i just got released from the hospital today for acute kidney failure so it's highly possible I am mistaken.

    Edit: Answered me own question after some casual reading :)

    I wish it was a joke... the most painful last two days of my life. Something caused them to start shutting down (food poisoning, a virus, they couldnt find out) and ive had about 12 bags of iv saline put into me as well as 4mg iv morphine every 2 hours for the last 14 or so. This is definately no way anyone should "check out". I caught it early so hopefully everything rebounds fine.

    The only issue here is that a preface, or disclaimer like the one you used
    does little when your content (prior to pete replying to you) wreaked of discontentment and sour grapes to an effect.

    A donation isn't payment for the work you download or use.
    Pete isn't *selling* his work, and your demands aren't reasonable.

    He does this because he loves to, and it just so happens
    MANY Droid owners agree in that they appreciate his work.

    He didn't choose to become (to some extent) a public icon in the Droid
    Modding Community, that is *YOUR* perception.


    It's not what you say...it is *how* you say it:wink:

    Expectations are what arguments, and discontentment are made of.
