    I did the update all at whole foods while eating lunch.

    1. Download the file from your phone, from the link here
    2. go to download folder and move the file to root of the SD card by using Astro file manager
    3. Rename the file from blur.zip to update.zip
    4. then use the instructions from above on installing it.

    Yes, you can delete the Update.zip file once you are done.

    The slider is still disappointing. I haven't noticed anything big yet either. I'm really looking to see how the battery will hold, wifi issues and faster location tracking (GPS)....speaking of GPS tracking. Can't imagine what goes through the head of a Verizon corporate crum bum to insist on installing VZ navigator for this phone. What moron would even consider paying $10/ month when you can get it for free?

    Following these instructions will cause you to lose root. Same methods work to get it back.

    Options. They want you to have options. If you are familiar with VZNav from a previous device, you can still use it on this one. If you don't want to figure out Google Maps and are in a rush, you can sync your maps/addresses/recent navs with VZNav and you're off and going.

    Google Nav is still listed as "Beta" even though it's pretty much at a release state. So to give customers more choices, VZNav gets pre-installed.

    A horrible decision looking at it from our side in that it takes up memory, is unnecessary (b/c of google nav), and costs money if we want to use it.

    A good decision considering the masses of consumers who are getting Droids and have no clue how to use it and want something familiar. It's extra money in the bank and people will pay for it because they don't want to spend time learning something different.

    I really wish all VZW apps were made available through the Market only. I can't stand seeing "3G Mobile Hotspot" at the top of my app drawer because I'll never use that feature. However, people think it's too much of a hassle to go into the Market to find something made specifically for their phone. There are more of them then us and so we get extra (cr)apps.
