    Meh, when it comes it comes. No rush. Honestly these updates are overhyped. Everyone was so excited about froyo and it was very underwhelming.
  4. im great with what i have now. have everything setup the way that i want. will i have to update when it actually does drop?

    I am wondering if the new Gingerbreak root exploit will work on the official GB when it is released?

    You have got to be kidding!

    Full Flash support, Wifi Hotspot and with the GPU tweaks they lowered max voltage from 64 (on 2.1) all the way down to 56, which greatly increased battery life while at the same time smoothing transitions and redraws considerably.... underwhelming???

    Honestly, it was like getting a completely different device in the mail. That's how much it changed these devices.

    I'll be running my GB leak until the OTA is rooted and a confirmed "upgrade" to what I have now.

    The gb leak also remakably changed our DX's here. I'm getting 50% more battery life, and the phone is fast enough now for smooth psx emulation, as well as some of the newer processor intensive games like dungeon defenders. (Our quadrant scores went from about 1150 to 1750.)

    And I LOVE the new notification bar and the new social widget. GB makes a HUGE difference, and will make your DX fel like a brand new device.

    My favorite part is that you can individually clear notifications. Sure, it's a small change, but I like it.

    There is no way GB gave you a 50% increase. You are either using it less or had a defective app or file using 100% cpu.

    I like that too

    Believe what you like. All I know if I only have to charge my phone every other day now, instead of half way through the day, and frankly thats all I care about.

    a new OS is a new OS. started on 2.1, loved 2.2, can't wait for 2.3.

    Indeed and imo, 2.3 is a much bigger jump from 2.2 than 2.2 was over 2.1. You'll love it. I'm a big, nay huge, motoblur fan now. :)

    I'm looking forward to GB too, but will wait until there is confirmed root of the OTA before I install it. I don't want to lose all the bennies I now enjoy with rooted Froyo 2.2.1. It is interesting to hear about the early adopters and I thank you all who have loaded the early GB leak and have shared your experiences! It sounds like "Gingerblur" is a rather nice and smooth successor to what we now have with Froyo. Bring on May 10th (or whenever it comes out)...

    Call me stupid but is there anyone here know that when this over the air does come out and we are still rooted will it fail or will take or worse screw our phone's up.

    if you're rooted you should be fine...IF you have not removed/renamed/frozen any bloatware apps...

    if you have done that the update will fail until you fix those issues...

    but if you're just rooted it should install fine...it will however break root and you will have to wait till the devs find a process for rooting

    Odds are you'll have to sbf back to froyo to take the ota update, or wait until someone roots the OTA, and posts it, or someone comes up with a root method for the OTA release.

    And there won't be any huge significant changes from what we have, so I'll wait for a rooted version of some kind.

    Rooted and running apex will that make a difference.

    If you are on the stock 2.2 (rooted or not) you'll recieve a message telling you that your phone has an update available. If you're not rooted and don't care to be then go ahead and take the update. If you're rooted, taking the update will more than likely break root and you'll have to wait until they root this version before you can root and use your root apps again. So you may want to hold off on taking it until they announce they've successfully rooted it.

    If you're running a custom ROM (like Apex), you will not recieve an update message, and will not be able to update until you flash back to stock 2.2.

    +1... in same boat

    Good! Been VERY happy with APEX 1.4.0 since I installed it. Unless I read in the forums the GB battery life is longer than 2 days, and the OS is as stable as APEX (no freezes or random reboots like I had with Froyo), I'll stay with APEX till I say bye to my X.
