    Ok. I know I'm on ver2. But is it the root? When I downloaded it there was also a recovery that I did not use. Did that screw me for root? Or am I just thinking wrong? Do we know if someone is working on rooting the leak versions?
    I know alot of questions. Sorry. My phone works really well on ver2 and I am afraid to go to ver3 and get the crap everyone else is dealing with, but root would be nice. Now that I have had the time to learn about it and how it works.

    From what I understand, the only versions that root is developed for are 1.5 and the new 2.1OTA. If you don't have one of those, sorry :(

    I'll be where I'm at!
    Others know a LOT more than me and maybe can chime in, but currently there is no Root access from any of the leaks. From what I understand, there are people working on Root for "Leaked" 2.1 vX but nothing has been achieved as of yet.

    That being said, it looks as though V3 is preventing people from getting the "Official" OTA update either manually or via a push from VZW. If you are keen on getting the official OTA, I would hang tight on V2 until it is pushed to your phone or Root is achieved.

    Again, hopefully someone more knowledgeable on the topic will respond!

    I dont think any of the leaks will get OTA because of the bootloader...

    But v3 is the OTA. So i would install it.
