    This is absolutely false. I really hope people aren't this gullible. The software development cycles on these phones is 6 months, and Verizon (nor any carrier) doesn't get them THAT far in advance.

    Regardless, you still haven't addressed;

    -the build date
    -the fact that the build number you gave us was for the Incredible 1 leak, not the Incredible 2 OTA

    What will we all do when this update actually comes? The dingos move somewhere else, and we need to find something else to debate about for nearly a year (thread started in 11-2010)..

    I'd root now if I were you. The update might break the current root methods and it could take awhile to figure out a new method. If you root now, you could just wait for some devs to release their version of the update and try it out then. It shouldn't take them very long.

    +1. If your goal is to get the new software and root, you definitely should root first. This has been how I've gotten every android update ever coming to my phone (except 1), and I have always gotten it faster this way than I probably would have waiting. Within a couple days, a dev will have a rooted version of the update, the same software just with root.

    And just so there is no confusion. You can root you're phone without installing a rom. You can stay on the stock HTC software.

    GINGERWATCH DAY 3.1456... I 'd just like to confirm from my source the Gargoyles are STILL in control! There was a rumor about some silly trolls, but I can tell you trolls can't take this heat.

    So on to the important stuff, my spy has finally made into the in sanctum. and he has a CONFIRMED date for you! 8/8,8/15,8/22,or 8/29. I GUARANTEE one of these dates! this will finally prove I'm a Gargoyle insider. I can even give you a build DATE of ##.##.##(censored by bunnies) ...

    So there you have it! Happy Monday folks!!!!

    Now, now.. to his credit, he did say Aug. 8th. So wait until next Monday when it doesn't show because of some freak wormhole, to get on his case...
