Anyone else? Bueller? How long should I wait before I just bite the bullet and force install?
I'v had mine for a week already. I'm 90 miles north of you.
I don't quite get why you want to wait...
I don't either, it's VERY easy to force.
Sure is! Just follow my guide!
I haven't received mine for my personal droid. My wife received hers on Mon or Tuesday. I did the forced update, but I'm still waiting on the notification of the "official" notification.
You won't get an "official" notification. It will already know that you have it.
'Am I The only person who hasn't gotten the Update notification from VZW?'
No you are the only one that hasn't read the 200 threads about self updating. You know how the rest of the world had to update, THEY DOWNLOADED IT FROM MOTOROLA AND INSTALLED THEMSELVES. So stop being lazy and install it,its the the same official freaking update like you'd download from moto so just do it already.
Relax LegacyStar...take a deep breath and relax. Though the Droid is a phone that caters to the tech savvy, not everyone is comfortable with force updating (even with Trident's step by step guide) just like everyone is not comfortable rooting.
Take a deep breath, relax and remember that one of the primary function of these forums is to help those who need it. Lord knows I've been helped a lot.
That's right, if it's not helpful, don't post it. Android Forums welcomes creative and even heated conversations, but not when being rude or mean to other members. We're all adults here (for the most part), so act like one. It's totally respectable that he doesn't want to force the update. It's just that your ranting and bantering isn't helping one bit. Sorry to come off as a little harsh myself, but this kind of thing really bugs me. Thanks for your understanding
what really bugs me are people that can't read the forums and figure stuff out for themsleves. this forum gets cluttered so much with people asking the same question over and over in new threads. threads of the same type just appearing under threads of the same topic right above it. it's just getting rediculous. it's not like this update thing has not been discussed a million times.
if you haven't gotten your update keep waiting or install it yourself, but don't make yet another thread talking about this.
i know we are here to help but my god man, it's been beatin into the ground already, i think we've done our part.
If anyone has done their part on this topic, it me and the other Guides. I thank you for you help, don't get me wrong! It's just that if something is annoying you and your not going to be helpful, don't post.
I have a coworker who has a droid. I asked her if she got the update she told me she gets updates all the time. I said this is different and she was adamant she got lots of them. I tried to explain what the update was. I gave up. Friday she brought me her phone upset her screen wouldn't turn on. Well her battery was almost dead, I charged it and low and behold guess what showed up the update (so she got hers on 4/9) I waited for her to show her the difference. There are people out there who there is no way they could do the update manually.
Or it's been cluttered with crap like this.
