    This is getting comical. Okay, mess up once, no biggie. We let it slide because, hey, everyone makes a mistake. But twice and it's starting to look like amateur hour around here. Really Verizon? I get that you may have found a bug (maybe) last minute and held off the release. And yeah, I'd rather have a good functioning one rather than a buggy one. But you're telling me, for as long as you've been working on it, that you're just NOW finding the bug? Signs point to something else.

    As retribution for this ridiculousness, you better be adding 5 home screens to the update. No, no, don't think about it, just do it. GD VZW. Who's running that place anyways? Morons?

    Well, this happens all the time with software it seems. Just look at the PC gaming community. Unfortunately it happens. Yes it sucks, and yes I think the companies (VZW, MOTO etc.) should actually test their crap before announcing a release date.

    This is why Im a fan of stating the release date is MUCH farther off than it actually is.... We do this at the company that I work with. You tell something that they are going to get it on the 18th, and it comes on the 20th, they are pissed. You tell them that they are going to get it on the 31st, and it comes on the 20th, they are ecstatic about getting it 10 days early. LoL

    This is very disappointing! They let us wait a month since the last messup, how long will we have to wait now?

    Being with VZW for six years now made me think of them as a truly professional and well run organization, which is why I'm so surprised for them messing up TWICE. I'm not happy!

    IT'S OFFICIAL! I don't know how many times I've seen those words on this forum for this update. And people wonder why the threads are made a mockery of.

    Because those "nice" ROM makers are NOT able to be held responsible if their release bricks a million phones.

    Well, like I said on BGR, I think the most infuriating thing is that there isn't an appropriate PR move. One, VZW posts it publicly on their website that it is imminent. Two, the buzz is clearly all over the internet. Nothing is sacred/secret. Three, the bug (according to BGR) was found late last night and they're communicating it now? Speaking of communicating...

    I think they could have avoided the DROID owners performing seppuku right now, if they just posted on their website: "Sorry folks, we had to delay the update release because we found the following bugs [list bugs] last night. Instead of releasing to DROID owners a buggy update, we felt it was better to hold off until we fixed those bugs." Simply PR kind of stuff. I think if people knew the bugs and had a personal communication from VZW via their website, it wouldn't be as infuriating or frustrating.

    Please find me some users who bricked their phone installing a ROM, when it was the programmers fault and not their own.


    So glad I rooted way back when. I really didn't want to, but my phone is so much faster than it was before. The most recent ROMs are really amazing compared to the speed of the stock phone.

    Eh people should just calm down. If you've ever coded software or been part of a bug test crew you'd know how many thousands of bugs can lie within there. Props to Verizon for catching it. If they released this and you all got screwed you'd be a lot more upset than waiting another week.

    No one will die without the update ;)
