    Hey all,

    I very unexpectedly received an OTA update today. Currently running 2.1 Leak V3 and was under the assumption from reading posts here that I wasn't supposed to receive anything OTA at all.. guess not.

    I don't want to lose/delay potential root capability and knowing Verizon, there's an HBOOT update in there..

    Can anyone shed some light? :cool:

    Hah well, I'm sure someone more caffeinated than me will be that guinea pig by morning and post some comments :) MUST RESIST HYPNOINSTALLBUTTON

    I can back out of the screen and force the update later, right?

    12.8mb is quite large, so there ought to be a lot of fixes!

    I have been looking at a couple different threads this morning and the one thing I have noticed is that the only ppl who say they have gotten it so far are all on a Leaked version... is this the fabled V3 conversion to official OTA?

    While I am sure there are a number of leak users out there that are saying "I did't get anything yet", I think it is worth watching. Would be interesting to see who all gets it in the next couple days and what they are running.

    I was on 2.1v3 and received the software update this morning around 7:00am. I'm in North Texas.

    Firmware version
    2.1

    Baseband version
    2.42.01.04.27

    Kernel version
    2.6.29-8a03cb9a

    Build number
    2.37.605.4 CL 185970 release-keys

    Software number
    2.37.605.4

    Don't have a clue what might have changed. It all seems the same as before the update.

    I received it this morning and installed it. Noticed nothing different so far. Didn't fix the 50% without signal bug as I had to do the airplane trick again after the auto reboot. I am a newbie and am not rooted or on a leak version. If that helps anyone. Not sure what they fixed.

    Oh something is different indeed
    I'm on OTA 2.1 (non-leak) and your baseband, kernel, and software number are all different.
