    Ok So Im so sick of the GB OTA release date getting pushed back so I think im ready to apply the latest leak of GB manually. But first I have a few questions:

    1. Can I get a link to the latest GB leak?
    2. Is the latest leak rootable?
    3. Will there be noticeable changes between the latest leak and the official OTA update?
    4. IS there any way to apply the latest leak of GB without losing any data like apps and text messages without having to back them up with thirdparty apps?

    Thanks a bunch!!

    Thanks yearn! But iknow when the OTA come ppl will not lose data so why can't we update it so we wont either? It just doesn't make sense to me cause I really don't feel like backing everything up again...

    Thanks

    Pretty sure it has to do with the way we flash roms, the OTA updates will have signed images, where as we have to work around the locked bootloader. That's what I assume anyway.

    i can't swear to this, but you might check out http://www.drewgaren.com/DrewGaren/Roms.html
    i first had trouble installing one of his roms because i wiped data and caches.
    i was told to just flash it without wiping, so i did and it worked fine (minor problems).
    one thing i noticed was none of my apps were affected. essentially, all of the work restoring my apps was avoided.
    will one of his froyo roms work for you? i don't know.
    i was on liberty gingerbread v0.5 .591 kernel before i changed.
    you might check it out.
