The lobsters are flying the planes full of pigs set to jump out and deliver our Gingerbread cookies...

Sadly this has been delayed because the hurricane has grounded flights on the east coast and it could take weeks before the lobsters get the planes refueled, get flight clearance again, and possibly have to clear dingos off the runway. In a spirit of fairness to the east coast people who can not receive the update because of this, there will be no update for anyone else until this issue is resolved.

I was just thinking earlier how bored we would be here if we weren't waiting around for VZW to quit dragging their feet and release Gingerbread. We wouldn't have anything to talk about.....it would be like a ghost town here....LOL.

Just say whatever random stuff comes to mind, throw the word Gingerbread in it THEN say 'rabid dingos' or 'knife wielding lobsters'. Its pretty easy, LOL watch

Well just the other day I was eating wings at Famous Daves and all of a sudden the server brought out steamed 'knife wielding lobsters'. I was very surprised to say the least, I asked the waitress WTF is going on. She said that they usually serve them after they have been killed but that these were secret insider lobsters with a secret message for my ears only. They told me that their brothers' cousins' step fathers' uncle on his mothers sides' brothers' former roomate got eaten at red lobster yesterday by some vzw executives and that the update was coming within a week.

Many bothans (i mean lobsters) died delivering this message

I could be wrong, but I thought the changed it previously (I think it went from 2.3.4 to just 2.3).

Since that is the next possible build number (4.06.605.3 versus 4.06.605.2 previously), I'm guessing it's just a documentation issue and nothing else.

Either way, I already running the update as a rom. So I'm not bother by this in the slightest.

If you look at the upgrade instructions page:

http://support.vzw.com/pdf/system_update/incredible_instructions.pdf

It still shows 2.3.4. But the big question is.... When?

There are a few threads here and on XDA that address this. Basically, HTC made it so that when you move an app to the SD card, the accompanying lib files go with it. For some apps, this frees up a ton of space in /data/data. For many users, this should help alleviate the problem. The problem isn't gone, it's just that they raised the ceiling on it. You'll still eventually hit it.

From what I understand, some of the worst offenders that cause this issue are:
-HTC Sense FB contact sync
-HTC Mail
-Netflix

If you used all three of those extensively, you probably ran into this issue at some point.

We're not sure yet when the official OTA will hit, but the recent leak has this fix built in. You can run any number of ROMs that are based on it (including the one in my sig). There's also a rooted "OTA" for those who want it as-is.

As I've said before though, the leak is not the same as the eventual official OTA (different build numbers now as well). However, it's pretty close.

I could very easily get my head handed to me for this one but if you have access to a mac there is very little chance of screwing up. I know the windows root is easy too but mac there are no drivers, no extra anything - it's plug it and run it. Took me less than 20 minutes. (I work for a graphics company and we have macs and the no driver installation was the selling point for me)

Otherwise - I am with you - the Vigor is the first one to grab my attention - I'm up for my N.E.T. in February - hopefully root will be found on Vigor before then. Lol. (I am now quite spoiled by the ability to change what I'm working with)

They only updated the "Benefits of the software update" file on 8/30.
The other "Software Update Instructions" file is dated 8/8.

With their track record, I suspect they overlooked updating the instructions.

Getting a "Titanic" feeling about this...

Hard to believe they removed the reference to Gingerbread, but they did. On the bright side, they did add a fix to the CityID app! (Unbelievable, but true! Aren't we all excited!?)

Maybe nothing's changed, so no need to update the file? Wishful thinking...

And I don't know - I can't get to it at work - they block me. Although I did learn that by disconnecting the system cable and turning on my wifi tether I can get around it if I'm desperate to see something)

And tomorrow is September, so that means we'll get it tomorrow...right?

Hey! At least we got SOMETHING out of these people!
HTC's Facebook updates are usually quite informative.
