    you would have to unroot to get it OTA....you have to decide if it's worth unrooting for then rerooting

    personally, I didn't see anything that makes me want to do that

    just wait around, all the good stuff will get built into the custom ROMs

    I'm so impatient when it comes to these "surprise" updates that I'd rather they didn't pre-announce them a week ahead of time...it'll probably be close to Thanksgiving before I get it--right before I'm ready to hit the road on a trip!

    Froyo update? We have been running the Froyo 2.2 for a while now. Or am I missing something?

    Not worth it. Seems to have a Youtube fix, and the rest is enhanced bloatware.

    they have now updated the PDF file but like already mentioned the update is kinda small, seems like more spam in the way of vcast stuff

    A little disappointed that this update won't give us the new HTC Sense. I really would like to get my Incredible connected to htcsense.com for the remote locate/erase.

    I agree with that too. Unfortunately this update does nothing but seem to add unnecessary apps to our phones.

    It was in the version leaked on 10/13 so I will assume it is in the official release

    I built a ROM based on the leak and the battery life seems a lot better and faster charging. Plus I have not had the 3G problem since running it.

    looking forward to those!

    wish it wouldnt take them so damn long to release updates when phones become outdated faster and faster as time goes on. That's mostly Verizon's fault tho. lol

    So annoying that we can't get the rest of the bluetooth stack. There are a significant number of cars that simply won't work with the Inc's BT. Pathetic.

    Yeah the new kernel is amazing, My friend has a G2 and I was checking out all the software info and it also has the new htc kernel, Its fast, battery life is good and charging is like a normal phone. I'm really happy with it.
