I may have moved on from the Slide to the G2 but I still own the Slide (my GF is currently using it while she waits for the Vibrant 4G) and I am so irritated with T-mobile over the blatant lies and deception over it.

When I bought this piece of sh*t I was told "it will launch on eclair and would soon receive froyo". Bullsh*t! I have since seen newer devices launch with the same UI running froyo (mytouch 4G) and phones with less power (mytouch 1 & 1.2) be updated to froyo.

Meanwhile we wait..........

and wait........

and wait........

Meanwhile Samsung updated the Vibrant to Froyo..... go figure.

I, for one, have been mostly pleased with the Slide, except for wishing it had more available internal memory. Of course I would like to receive Froyo but I would prefer that all the bugs are worked out first.

I was just wondering...has T-Mobile ever made an "official" statement that the Slide would receive the update, or have they just been rumors from the beginning?

I thought it was official, but that they were releasing it for the myTouch 3G (done) and then the the mTouch 3G 3.5mm jack and then the Slide. Has the 3.5mm jack gotten the Froyo update yet?

The slide ota DOES exist (it is a test-keys version and not flashable) though it is not being pushed out. There is even a dev (chiefzreloaded) on xda working on making it into a flashable rom. But like I said before the build has issues discovered by tmobile regarding wifi and going by chiefz twitter feed he is running into wifi issues with the build as well.

The word is that wifi calling doesn't work and apparently wifi scans and connects to network but often fails to obtain ip making it impossible to use.

If this release was legit I'd consider that official. I doubt they have more than a few people working on it, and they're probably not even working on this exclusively. I kind of wish they'd never announced the wifi calling. I have no need for it, and I suspect that if it wasn't for that part being buggy we'd all be enjoying Froyo already...

I also have no need for wifi calling. When I'm home I use my cell phone for phone calls..

Well lets see They have the Vibrant out and were holding onto the OTA of froyo (don't give me that crap about it being t-mobile's doing I only blame them for not pressuring companies into supporting their devices not physically witholding an update) and now that news broke on the Vibrant 4G (which is the same phone with HSPA 21 added) being released with froyo they send out the OTA....... oh and that Vibrant 4G still has broken GPS and will soon be replaced by whatever T-mobile renames the Galaxy mini (Highlight II?) and Galaxy S2 (Vibrant II?) and don't be shocked to see a Nexus 4G ala the Vibrant 4G soon...... and all before the Sidekick S drops toward the end of the year......... and all will no doubt be basically the same phone.

No, you likely didn't. Unless you are just now getting the MR update. The froyo OTA hasn't been officially pushed yet. The software version number is the only way to know for sure.

*also, just for grins, updated the Mytouch update schedule here

Is there something else that would have given me a message about a firmware update with buttons that say Update or Postpone? I didn't have time to do it so I hit postpone and it gave me an option of how long to postpone it, I chose 6 hours so I could do it when I got home from work.

Sorry if the message I received had nothing to do with 2.2

There are many reasons why you would get the notification. The most likely are:

-you still haven't gotten the MR update (the most likely)
-you are using a custom rom based off of the stock UI and are getting false notifications
-or it is an android update (this is what you are hoping for)

Only way to tell what the update is, is the software number of the update. when you do it look for the android version number and software number in the about phone settings menu (menu>settings>about phone>software information). If its froyo it will say:

Android version 2.2.1
Software version 2.13.531.1 or 2.15.531.1 (these are the two software versions of froyo for the slide)

Since it is likely just the MR release you should see:

Android version 2.1 update1
Software version 1.35.531.1

Though it is not likely that you received the OTA as it has not begun officially going out to devices, the update is in fact on OTA servers ready to be pushed any day now. Let us know what software you are on after you complete the update.

Well the leaked update for root devices works well with little to no ill effects. The problem is with sending the update ota, as the update in its first version (2.13...) downloads to a partition on the slide that doesn't have enough memory to process it. This along with minor issues should have been fixed in the second version (2.15...). Long story short, as I already posted in the update schedule, this should go out in as few as a couple weeks. I would not expect it sooner, although stranger things have happened. Its still a wait and see operation.

Is 2.15.531.1 better than 2.13.531.1?

Also is there a stock rom out there without root? In case my gf has to send the phone in? I forgot to do a nandroid

Yeah the official update is not out but the CR_Mod_2.13.531.1_OTA ROM is 100% stable I have had it on my slide for over 2 weeks and have not had one force close. My only complaint is that it seems I can not install as many apps for whatever reason.

If it's like the other geniusless ROMs it remaps the genius button for google search.

I almost wish this update wasn't lurking so close to being (apparently) ready for release. I'd been telling myself that if 2.2 wasn't available beginning of '11 I'd root it and install CM, but now we're being teased with the official update being right around the corner again.
.....same thing here if we dont get froyo by the end of this month im rooting and installing cm7

Ditto, although I may do CM6. I'll probably try both.

I am ok without the genius button but at least make the button do something other than power cycle the device. Back to the CR build.

Not my rom so no worries! Just add the genius app back from cr_mod to fix that issue. The phone cycles because the button had not been remapped so when you push the button the phone cannot complete action.

Do you know what it's labeled as because I can not seem to find it.

Would I be able to place certain apps into the ROM prior to installing it?

Such as the blue market or the motorola connected music player?

I think I will stick with the CR ROM and just delete certain things such as amazonmp3 and the app pack

For the most part yes, but there are some apps that will not install as system apps. Don't know about those two apps, but it won't hurt anything to try. Just keep in mind that even if they don't install they will still take up system memory so if they don't work make sure you remove the files from /system/app.

So much for that idea.

For some reason now when I try booting into recovery and I click install update from SD it says "E: failed to open /sdcard/update.zip (no such file or directory) E: signature verification failed Installation aborted".
And that was without tweaking any of the rom.

I just can't get into clockwork recovery.

I did delete the "update" folder but I added it back and still no luck.

Will I have to use cmd and redo the rooting process?

I still have root.

What is all of the system info for the complete stock (before the OTA update that t-mobile sent out months ago) I somehow unrooted myself completely.

That's the engineering/champion build. Its a none released test build usually flashed when rooting.

Ok that is what I figured I just couldn't remember the name for it (champion).

I do not have root anymore.... I never downloaded anything to do with this and since it is in a way a Mytouch Slide software version am I safe to send it back for exchange?

So will having a non rooted slide with 2.18.531.1 on it void the warranty?

I can't adb push exploid anymore to reroot it for some reason I can not figure it out. I have tried 2 slides on 2 computers with 2 SD cards with no luck.

The phone will not load the ESPRIMG file anymore (I used the alternate file as well with no luck).

I did it successfully before I don't see what I am doing wrong.

The slide with 2.18.531.1 is a total piece of junk. Loose hinge, creaky body, dust under the screen...... you name it it has it...... I really want to send it back in but not if its going to cost me $300

So is there a trick to rooting from 2.18.531.1?

Whenever I try I can't get past the ./exploid line I turn on wifi and type ./exploid again and it does not ask for a password.

I have now made 2 slides go to 2.18.531.1 and they both do the same thing.

There is no 2.18.531.1. Do you still mean 1.18.531.1, which is what you said in post 145?
Fyi 2 at the beginning =2.2, 1 at the beginning =2.1
