    Verizons twitter said the OTA will go out to everyone, including the leakers right? How long did they say this process would take, if they did at all?

    i read the same thing on the twitter site for vzwsupport. I thought I read that it will be out to everyone by the 25th. Another date for us all to wait for. Thanks Verizon.

    And it keeps getting shorter. You all are making me wonder if I will ever get the OTA.

    My Verizon rep said if you haven't gotten the OTA you are SOL.

    If you want the OTA now, I think there is a thread that has the download and you can perform it manually.

    That is the understatement of the century. The ratio between stockers that got the update and leakers that got it is evidence enough. Whether they'll have a new patched update that won't check for 1.5 is unknown. But i doubt it. I say the leakers like me are stuck. If you're on v1 or v2, just download v3 and pretend it's the ota

    As I have stated before, I do not think the leakers are going to get an OTA update because the software version numbers are the same. When looking for an update, the system checks the current installed version against the update. They ate the same, so no, you will probably not get it.

    Also, as pointed out on this forum, the update install script checks the version number and if it is not 1.5, the install fails.

    Unless they release a stand alone installer, then no update for you.

    Stop calling care or tech or tweeting.......I just laid it out for you in black and white. If I am wrong, I will retract. As of this moment, I am 100% accurate.

    Flash to v3 and learn from this. I know i have. I just assumed like everyone else we'd be included in the update too. We were their beta testers. But now i know, it really is at your own risk. Whatever my next phone will be, i know i'll be patient and just wait for the update

    Why would leaker's not deserve anything? We are no different than anyone else if 1.5 got it then 2.1 leaks should also get it it's not like the people that stayed with 1.5 are any better than those who leaked. In my opinion every Eris should be the same as far as OS.:D

    All of the testing that leakers "Unofficially" did for Verizon most likely enabled you guys to get the 2.1 OTA a bit quicker. Leakers reported all the bugs they were finding and Verizon kept fixing them with every version update of the leaks.

    So Leakers should actually be thanked.

    Am I wrong?

    I'm not saying it's their Primary source of bug reports, but I don't see why someone on the proper team (Q&A ?) isn't Also a member on various phone forums keeping an ear to hot topics and/or major complaints.

    Do you know for a Fact they don't do this?

    Many companies do this to monitor their products, I don't see why verizon wouldn't.

    Gotcha. But I didn't say Verizon leaked it on Purpose. (although I did toss that idea around way back when until I realized on my own how it was actually leaked)

    Rather, I think that once it was leaked (by "that guy in China" :rolleyes::p) verizon possibly kept an eye on the "results" of the leak.

    If only one release got leaked, I might believe you. When THREE releases got "leaked", sorry, you're wrong. That was done intentionally.

    How are you going to warranty it? The warranty doesnt cover "user installed software that is not officially supported" ( and yes I know I know the leaks are basically the same as the ota, at least v3 is). Its not verizon's, htc's or googles fault you installed a leaked version of software that was still being tested by verizon. now maybe you can bust it up real good and claim it through insurance, but again you can always install v3 and be content, and hope they release a ota for leakers.
