    I see a lot of people here saying that its a soak test and not the official ota. Make no mistake about it this is the official ota. As i see it this I'd not just an upgrade. Its a whole new os. An os that you can't revert back from if it had any bugs. Meaning if this was a soak test to find bugs to then fix and Tennessee with ota they would have to make 2 ota. One for the purple still on gingerbread and the other for the purple that soak tested. I don't think Motorola is that dumb. Ours better to just release ics and then patch it up if there are any bugs. At least that's my theory.

    Correct this is an official roll out not a soak. It should begin rolling out tomorrow morning again.

    Hate to tell you both this . It was a soak test . I was part of it. I just received the final survey about the soak test . ICS works great . Hopefully it should be out for everyone soon .

    I think you missed the point. .211 is likely the official roll-out version, and yes, there was clearly a multitude of postings mentioning it, and it is apparently still an ongoing soak.

    For the record, I am not aware of one other than you indicating any survey having been sent yet. Had there been a survey, that would mean the soak is over, and the Motorola's Private Forums would be closed. Again, there have been no posts by anyone else to confirm this, and if it had been closed there would likely be a barrage of news from those soak members as they would now be out of their confidentiality agreement.

    If you believe you have proof of your claim, how about posting a screen shot of the survey?

    Umm, regarding Matt from the Motorola Feedback Network... is his grammar and the command of the English language usually that poor? Just curious, because I have never received any written communication from MFN Matt but I would think someone in his position would have better writing skills.

    OK, it appears I stand corrected on one point - that the survey did go out (to some). So to clarify, it is a soak as most everyone has maintained all along on these threads. As said, the real question which was on the minds of the members is whether .211 was the version that would be rolled out or if we might see an iteration of that, such as perhaps a .212 to fix some minor issues.

    I'm guessing its the version that will be released to the masses, maybe some minor updates in a few weeks/months?

    The answer is right in the email provided by 1coopgt. They will start evaluating the soak test surveys after mid day tomorrow, and make a go/no go decision. If it's a go, then yes, .211 will be the official OTA. If it's a no go, it's back to the drawing board. The people on .211 from the soak test will likely be provided a different OTA than the people who didn't get .211 once a version IS approved.

    So, short answer is simple - no one knows yet if .211 will be official, that is up to Motorola's people. If they give it a go, it will probably push very shortly after, and probably be pullable within an hour.

    I have to ask why it is so important to you if .211 is the official roll-out version? If you can wait a few days, you will have your answer. Also, when the poster stated about the survey, you were quick to question his post. You unfortunately was not included in the soak test, so don't assume that those that are involved in it are wrong from what they are posting. Motorola asked that information be kept confidential for those involved in the soak test, so be glad that you are hearing anything about it. :biggrin:

    I think this has been clarified and accepted as so.
