    Hey everyone,

    Evidently, this is how one of you lucky cats that receive the 2.1 OTA, can upload the official update for everyone to download manually, and early... :)

    You have to have a working ADB connection with your computer to do this...

    When/if you receive the official update notification, deny it. Then plug your phone into a computer and type in this command:

    adb -d logcat UpdateReceiver:I CheckinService:I *:S

    And hit enter. It should give you a link...then just post that link up here on the forum for everyone to enjoy!

    It sounds from your post as if 2.1 has been released OTA from VZW. I dont know if that's the case, but it sounds like you knew something that you werent explicitly sharing.

    No worries.

    No.....I just mean IF anyone ever receives it.....how does it look I know something? I thought everyone was under the impression that it could come any day anyways? Aren't they?

    And in the OP I said "When/if you receive the official update"

    I'm just hoping someone can post an early manual update so everyone can enjoy!! Even though I myself, will not be using it, but maybe this can get the file out there for the devs to find the exploit and root it...that's my theory. And the earlier people see this they will know what to do you know?
