    For all the people who decided to get the leak onto there phone, like myself, wouldn't it be possible to get a file of the 1.5 version of the phone and reinstall it? Or no, because it's a lower version? It'd be like reinstalling your phone to 1.5 then downloading the OTA.

    I believe this has been tried, in a way. If I remember the latest round of posts about people trying to move from the leak to the OTA the big problem is the Hboot number on the OTA vs the LV3. The leak is .02 high than the OTA.

    Yes, it was tried using the RUU for MR2, as well as by extracting the PB00IMG.ZIP from that RUU and doing it manually. Neither works.

    Hmm well, like how I downloaded a file and put it onto my phone, did the whole installation thing to get v3, couldn't it be possible to get the 1.5 file, like the other leaks, and do the same thing that I did with the leak? I'm not talking about moving from the leak to the OTA, I'm talking about from leak back to the stock version.

    Yeah, I even got ahold of the MR1 RUU and that didn't even work.

    Exactly, I went from OTA 2.1 back down to 1.5 using RUU MR2 download, and the reason I was able to do this is because the OTA 2.1 upgrade never changed my HBOOT. But with the leaked versions the HBOOT is changed to 1.49 as OTD mentioned. and non-leakers are 1.46 or 1.47.

    WHAT! You CAN'T go to OTA from Leak?

    Just having a little fun...I need it, got the flu :( And this just made me chuckle to myself :)
