    I ran Apex, and was a little worried there was no update for GB. But, having taken the plunge, wow, forget Apex.

    For the first time since I got this phone, I can show it to any iPhone user and not have to worry about screen rotation lags, glitchy GUI issues, or any other performance issue.

    Froyo was underwhelming, but nice--it added features, but had some performance issues. GB adds a few nice enhancements but more importantly makes the whole dang platform run smooth as warm butter.

    It has been confirmed to work on the X and will most likely work with the OTA unless there is a major change between the latest leak and what will become the official release. If May 10th ends up being the date, there won't have been a lot of time to make major changes to the update.

    The motoBlur version of GB is quite beautiful and I think that all but the most picky will be impressed by the update.

    If this is the case, then I am becoming more hopeful. I'll still hold off until the early adopters are satisfied and there is confirmation that root and all the goodies therewith are not compromised. Thanks again to everyone who has posted with info on GB :D.

    Thanks for the input. Maybe I will have to try the GB OTA when it comes out. If I don't like it, there's always Apex 2.0 which I'm sure Fab will insure runs on the official as well as the leaked GB.

    Just wait until you put Apex on top of Gingerbread. It is in Alpha testing now and seems to be running very well. Should not be long until Fab is ready to release a public version.

    If you are currently rooted and running Apex you will NOT even get the OTA notification.

    I'm casting my vote for 'pastry'.

    But your are correct, since sweet treats are the theme, 'popcorn' certainly won't make the cut. What other choices are on the menu besides 'pudding' and 'pastry'?

    'peanut butter parfait'?

    Don't get me wrong--if Apex 2.0 does for GB what 1.4 did for Froyo, I'm all over it! I'm just saying right now, GB is so much smoother than Froyo that losing Apex 1.4 to get GB wasn't a problem.

    Standard disclaimer: All this will be OBE 1-2 weeks after the OTA is out...

    I dare not say out-loud what I'm thinking.

    OK...you got me. Tried to figure out OBE but just can't place it. Help please?

    That works. It's late and I'm slow so I don't completely get it but at least I know the acronym.

    Direct quote from the link:
    "that we may not be so far away from having it available to everyone. When exactly is this "not so far away" date then? How does May 10th sound? We'll be keeping our fingers crossed on this"

    Seriously, these threads/posts should be deleted from this forum. Look at what we're reading and creating hype from. "How does May 10th sound?" Really? Horseshit.

    Do you mind elaborating on why it's horseshit?

    I know that putting a date on a verizon update is crazy because it almost never hurts but that takes the fun out of speculation. My advice to anyone who is holding on to this date is to take it with a GIANT grain of salt, because you will likely find yourself severely disappointed. No inside info here but I just know the history of how these things go down. That's why many of us just load the leaked, likely as close as you can get OTA on our phones and just don't worry about an official OTA.

    I think you answered your own question there. It's horseshit precisely because it cannot be relied upon. They throw out a date of May 10th with no source or backing at all. We can't count on that date. SO the date is horseshit. Piffle. flummery. Vapor date. Absolutely useless to anyone anywhere other than to increase tragically hopeful traffic to the site that threw it out.

    How does April 30th sound? That's what I'm putting on my site. Come by and see!

    I got sick of waiting for the OTA, so I installed the leaked version. After a couple of minor glitches, I could NOT be happier! The phone is faster, smoother, more user-friendly, with DRAMATICALLY better battery life. Today for example, I had a 10 hr day, with 8 average length calls in/out...checking weather radar a cpl times an hr...on bank site and facebook a few times, and still had 80% battery life when I got home. I don't know if thats 50% better than before, but it's definite much better and very acceptable! Love it, love it, love it! :D

    As always, SWYPE ROCKS!
