    Quoting Masefield;

    My dream, though, is just beginning.

    Got me Desire at long last.

    Before I continue gushing, I'd like to thank EVERYONE who contributed in my earlier thread.

    The wait wasn't easy. In fact, I'm itching to turn it on. Waiting for it charge before I fiddle with it all night.

    I have an important client meeting early tomorrow morning. It is a pity that my client is most likely to see a towering zombie in front of him. :p

    Ok, am off to do a quick check-up in the forum. Will fill this thread in later tonight.

    Peace, folks. Take care.

    I tried to run a manual software update.

    About phone -> System software updates.

    I get the message - Your phone is up-to-date.

    Am I missing something?

    Masefield would turn in his grave
    'I must down to the seas again.' Nowhere is the word GO
    You must be thinking of Spike Milligans version

    I must go down to the sea again,
    The lonely sea and sky.
    I left my socks and vest there,
    I wonder if they're dry

    Congrats on your new phone though

    I reside in the Middle East, mate. Bahrain, to be specific. Mobile phones are not network-locked here.

    Device updates for such "unbranded" phones - region specific..? I wonder... Never found any such detail online, though.

    You should be able to manually install an official ROM! Try here for a guide and all the things you'll need :)

    I think that's just what the doctor ordered. Thanks, doc! ;) :)

    Will try it out and post a note in here.

    Am itching to remove some pre-installed apps. Will update first and root later. Need to shift a lot of stuff to the SD.

    Question: I recently installed 3CX & Nimbuzz (for VoIP calling). If I update to 2.2, do I need to wait for versions that are compatible with it? They are the only apps I have installed thus far.
