    HAHAHA I've been looking for this exact same info. I was just told by sund0wn that he heard it was able to be deodexed using the old method. I havnt tried this yet to confirm it yet though... gotta do some more digging and research first.

    Those were leaked on September 18th (date provided right under the title of it) prior to the OTA being installed. Are you SURE those would still work on the OTA? I was under the impression from everything I've read that those were for upgrading from the 2.3.9 leak. NOT for using over the OTA

    new kernal (ie the one from the OTA) or one newer then that? radio idk about lol. and everything works in your thing from the TBH app too? Only reason im skethched about doing anything right now is the OTA has been flawless for me. I only had a couple small bugs with the leaked version but this has been perfect for me. I guess worst case, I grabbed the partial sbf while I could so I could always go back that way if I need to lol.

    I'm on 2.3.13, will the TBH release take me to 2.3.15 OTA replica without screwing up the bootloader etc? I.E. I could still SBF back to 2.1 if I wanted?

    Will I lose Root?
