    I have been holding off on purchasing the Streak and dumping my iPhone for a while now. I just hung-up the phone with a very knowledgeable Dell Mobile specialist. He has confirmed that the 2.2 update is available OTA for both unlocked and ATT Dell Streaks. He was very confident the info is correct. He said he uses one and it is released.

    Can someone confirm that so I can pick up one of these bad boys and get rid of the iphone?

    Thanks

    I have an att streak and still no update yet. You can get 2.2 if you buy an unlocked direct from dell. I saw them on their website.

    Just received my unlocked dell. It didn't come with 2.2 but a system update and a couple reboots fixed that. I assume mine is the unlocked version because wifi hot spot is enabled as is side loading.

    US Streaks are supposed to get the OTA Update to 2.2 in Mid December. Im currently waiting also. But I would def. recommend that you get a Streak. There SWEET!!

    So you guys are saying the Dell guy was wrong? ALso, if I get it now and dont want to wait till mid december and update it to unofficial 2.2, can I do the oficial 2.2 when it comes out?

    OK. I went to bestbuy and got one. No OTA, as you guys said here.

    Called Dell Mobile support. The girl answered said will be updated soon. Any day now.

    Now I am pissed. But still liking it. So the question is should I root and install 2.2?

    Also, what is the best method, it seems like there are couple?

    Thanks

    It did not happen. No OTA update. Now the question is do I return so I have my 30 days to test once it comes out? Do I root it and install 2.2? Is that risky? Is it easy to update OTA if it is rooted and a new rom installed over 1.6???:confused:

    Just download the QDL tool, watch the video tutorial, and update it yourself.
    PAINLESS! 15 minutes, you'll be on 2.2

    What OS are you using?

    If windows, then from XP on the operating system supports zip files. You might have to uninstall winzip first so that it defaults back to the OS.

    WOW!!! That was soooooooo easy.
    I had gone through the step in XDA developer a couple of time both up (failing at the DJ_Steve 2.2 step) and then back down.

    But this way was faster and much (can't say that too many times ;) ) much easier.

    I'm running 2.2 now.
    wow very different home screens.

    Now off to play weeeeeeeeee

    ok specifically that this driver is not for my device or something like that so it wont let me finish the update. this sucks. i have windows vista 32 bit according to the system specs page on the computer. and its on an amd 64 processor but im not sure how much of a difference that ends up making

    2.2 starts tomorrow in the UK not for us in the States. If it happens at all it's going to be January
