    I want to get the new leaked update but im not ready to root my phone yet. Is it possible that if i update with the radio version and they change it before it releases OTA can i still get that version?

    Also can someone give me a link to download and instructions on how to install it unrooted?

    I totally understand why you would be hesitant to root, but let me tell you...one hesitant person to another, it ROCKS!!!!I started with a droid1, went to the droid X and everyone around me had a rooted phone it seemed like, though I was still scared to do so. got the TB and did some real research and asked a lot of questions. I rooted last 5 days ago and I love it. main reason....BATTERY!!! with my X I would take it off charger around 5am and by 3pm I was sprinting to a charger. with my rooted TB, I have been able to take of charge at 5am and go till 9PM with 10-20% charge left!!!!!

    I used the long root method. Reason being is the long step shows you step by step how to do everything.

    I was a terrified android owner standing on the other side of the fence looking at all the fun everyone else was having. Now I'm on the other side and I love it!!!! I'm going to try some custom roms tonight. Do some research and ask some questions, you wont regret it!

    yes I understand that, but his first words were...."I'm not ready to root." I've been there for a couple years and was simply telling him not to be afraid of rooting where he would gain much more from.

    For those that have done this signed version, what do you lose?

    Don't you get downgraded to the older market version? What else do you get downgraded to or lose in this process?

    Also, what are the dangers of flashing this?

    I'm a D1 guy that bought a TB yesterday and am also looking at flashing this, but without root and Rom Manager, I have no way to backup the original image in case something gets boinked...

    I would root, but figured it would be best to wait until after the 14day trial period, just in case I experiece any HW issues.

    Has anyone got this ruu to successfully install. I updated and reverted to factory settings when I didn't get Google setup and internet to work. Does anyone notice how battery lasts now?

    Since I have installed this I have seen some of the improvements but I have not really seen an improvement in battery life. There may well be one but I just haven't noticed it myself.

    I also installed it and really I haven't noticed any major differences in battery life it really anything for that matter... Well I have noticed a MUCH better 4G to 3G handoff where I used to have to reboot my phone often when going from 4G to 3g the data handoff is seamless
