    Geez, you are dumb to go back for a rumor. There has always been a leaked VZ shot of the release notice before the OTA.

    VZ actually making it all the way to the release date without so much as one leak at all? Impossible. (I'd be suprised if not, but let's be real here)

    The amount of hype is ridiculous. Wait until it hits, then go back to 2.1 for it if one wants.

    I remember when 2.1 was coming out. I, like many, un-rooted & waited for the OTA. When it did come, it took me maybe a week to get root access back.

    I will not be making that mistake again!

    Nevertheless we have our own sources and at the time they did confirm what the other web site was saying. Now things have changed as will happen with updates and it appears August 1, or the week there of updates will roll out. That too could change.

    I'd personally be interested to know WHY it's taking Moto/VZW so long to get this Froyo update together - my thought is that it has something to do with getting the network ready for the new tethering/hotspot options. However, in my case, the release date doesn't really matter. I already AM and have been running Froyo since the day it leaked. The truth is, the official update will likely never touch my phone. I made the mistake of unrooting and allowing the official 2.1 update to install; had to use an SBF file to go back to 2.0.1 and get my root/custom recovery going again.

    For those who cannot root (company owned phone, folks on a Mac, etc.) just be patient, when it DOES drop, it will be worth the wait. For everyone else, what are you waiting for? Root away!

    Froyo No-Show? Are we chasing the carrot-on-a-stick again??

    I felt like THIS DUDE >>> dancedroid after watching at my clock turn 12:01am.

    Although... I also woke up this morning believing (yet again) we :motdroidvert: Moto Droid users will be playing the "android waiting game" for the software update that seemingly won't get to us till (I believe) faaaaarrrr after the so-called release date. :icon_evil:

    Wasn't that update supposed to launch this morning??
    Where's my fricken froyo??!! (lol)

    Hey, we are hearing an additional couple of weeks. Stuff happens like this all the time. Originally I heard early June. Now we are hearing August 1 or week of. All we can do is talk about what we hear, that's why they call them rumors.

    I've been running it for weeks myself. It's still fun though to watch it come out for everyone. This is a much better update then 2.1 was.
