    I assume that when we do receive GB, that it will wipe off my side loading that AT&T just pushed to me yesterday? or is that only if I manually update to GB from the website?

    Thnx!

    I heard a rumor that the GB update will have the unknown sources enabled on it so those that never got that update should get it with this update. So I guess no matter what after the update everyone should have sideloading enabled.

    But again that could just be that, a rumor. So I'll sit and wait and see what happens for others. It's what I did for the froyo update they pushed for the captivate back in February.

    Once we have Gb and if a time comes that we need to reset our phone back to factory outta the box condition... then how do we get gb again? We have to call/chat to request it be repushed again or ... ?

    Sorry for all the questions, Im a newbie and just trying to learn the ropes.

    once you have it then itll override the original so even if you do factory reset you'll still have it

    Maybe a little something but it's sure not helping me with an os update, check in=nothing and nothing on the htc site for me either. Also not seeing any activity from phone on my router.

    The one guy that it did work for, 1st posted about, wasn't bs'ing though, on ATT forums someone else saw it on the htc site as well and gave some copypasta from that page. I guess htc took it down for some reason.

    But, they still left on the tech specs that the current version is 2.3.3. I'm assuming this means the update is coming quite soon.

    also if it were on the page how would you manually download it?

    xda has a leaked manual installer as of 7/30, presumably the same as what was there for a bit tonight, it's a windows exe, I guess it would do it over the usb cable.

    I had saved the HTC site with the download. Below are the contents. (maybe the download will work??) I downloaded the file but chose not to update yet. Hope it comes over WIFI soon.

    You're welcome.

    How long did the manual update take?

    I will do mine this weekend if it doesn't come through. Might do it anyway just to get a cleaner install.

    it was REALLY quick for me.
    less than a half hour (results may vary) and i had gingerbread on my phone :)

    its actually taking longer for me to get everything back onto the phone and setting it back up. (the update pretty much factory resets your phone.)
