    Hello All,

    New to the forum... while waiting for the 2.2 OTA update, I found out about the #*#*checkin*#*# to force the phone to check in for updates (or something). Being the curious sort I typed in #*#*root*#*#, it seemed to accept the command but doesn't look like it's changed the phones behavior at all. When I enter something random like #*#*foo*#*# it does nothing, so I am convinced the phone acknowledged this.

    Any ideas?

    Where do you input #*#*checkin*#*# I need to re check for my update. I had it earlier but messed it up because I was rooted

    The regular dialer is where you would type something like that.

    No one is going to believe this. But, I just did the "checkin" got a message in the notification bar that said "checkin sucess". Then I noticed 3G activity, so I checked for system updates ad there it was 2.2 downloading!!!
