    Yeah.. that "feature list" looks curiously like the one in the original OTA thread here. I am calling shenanigans..

    I'd prefer this over the other update! You know, the one I still haven't gotten yet!

    That does fall inline with explaining why MichaelWeston's tip got sideways and the OTA never rolled out...

    Would be nice - filing this under the "Great if it pans out!" tab...




    *But, I ain't clearing my calendar for late July/early August until I see something from HTC/Verizon on this... :p

    To me this means anywhere between today and a month from now.

    "Early August" is pretty much anything between Aug 1-15.

    My guess is we'll see it later as opposed to sooner. IF this is real (who the hell knows anymore?!) then it'll probably happen closer to that Aug 15th date.

    Have to admit, it wouldn't surprise me at all if HTC isn't really busting their butts to get this out before the Droid X does.

    Well in a few weeks, The Incredible has gone from being a Big Red bastard stepchild to possibly being the hottest cake, all through the internets. I will take that Frozen Yogurt with some dark chocolate please.

    It may very well be plausible in the next 2 weeks or so. Strategically placed Ninjas rule.

    also, those of us who've already installed the leaked OTA will probably want to roll back to stock before installing this.

    Except the top line item says: FROYO

    Your link is to Gizmodo, not engadget.

    We shall see. When my phone tells me an update has arrived then I will believe it.

    Since the OTA leak was technically an update and not major firmware change (like eris going from 1.5-2.1) would there be really be any issues? Just curious as I'm a noob when it comes to these things.

    It contained a radio update.

    So, yes, it could possibly fail to install or brick your phone if you installed it over the OTA leak.

    You would want to downgrade first.

    This might make sense actually... In Weston's thread there was someone who sounded like he knew what he was talking about and said that the MR was pushed back two weeks because of a failed test. Hopefully the next test doesn't fail.

    Im betting it won't happen. I read in the other thread that the update was coming with froyo in early august to START testing. Therefore you won't get it until a couple weeks later or possibly more.
