    I am currently on the leaked 2.3.9 and curious what are the benefits of updating to ota 2.2? Besides of having the newest software?

    I haven't read anything to make me want to update? Am I wrong to think this way? I didn't remove any bloatware but did root.....

    I work in an office. It has a window, but it isn't
    In a house, near some mountains.
    as of right now, i dont recommend the OTA. they upgraded the bootloader, so you cant use the 2.1 sbf if you get into trouble. if anything, upgrade to the leak 2.3.15, but i dont recommend the OTA. there are still bugs and issues, but no .sbf to fall back on. i would stay where you're at for now, because i am sure there will be good things to come in the near future for those that didnt OTA. i believe you're wise to stay where you are for the time being.

    I agree about staying put. I'm still on 2.3.9 also and don't have a single problem. Finally decided to root yesterday and installed fly x today. Couldn't be happier and the only thing the ota apparently offers is an inability to fix your phone.

    I regret getting the OTA. I was running a very smooth 2.3.9 with flyx and though HEY THE NEWEST IS THE BEST!! Not so much. nothing changed except now im afraid to install themes and what not.

    Thanks guys...that is what I will do. I really have no urgency since the ota gives no real benefits.

    I too regret getting the OTA prior to a 2.2 SBF being available...I'm afraid of doing any customization due to the possibility of bricking...motorola needs to stop fighting against what so many of there consumers are fighting for...
