    So does dialing in from Velocity ROM block the call from even dialing? If I try just to see if anything is pending I get the "cannot connect as dialed" recording.

    I just ran the mobile updater and guess what. There was an update. 2.2.1, My ally is currently running it.

    Go ahead and try if you wish.

    does it have to be done from the mobile updater?

    So far yes. I haven't heard anything of ota's being pushed. We also haven't gotten it rooted yet so don't rush to update if anyone is a rooter.

    No z4 force closes. We tried rageaginstthecage (which z4 uses) and it didnt work either. I've read numerous things about various phones having trouble rooting 2.2.1

    I'm assuming you can't update using the tool if you're running a custom ROM/recovery, and as such would have to revert to a stock ROM/recovery?

    Mobile Updater?? What is that?

    It's LGs utility for updating phones. It's on their website.

    Thanks! I love it when vendors "hide" things like this. I just searched the Ally User Manual PDF and of course NO mention of mobile updater. :)

    LG's support site must be getting a lot of traffic; I can't even download the update tool.

    dots I already have kernel source for froyo kernel. Please stay on 2.2.1 and lets hope bootloader has fastboot. Can you verify and try to flash recovery via fastboot and get me a nandroid? If not I'll need someone to capture & upload the ota.zip and I'll have to mod it to be flashed via custom recovery.

    So are they going to eventually push this OTA?
    I am really concerned about the root problems. :thinking:
    How have other devices handled this?
    arrg!!! frusterated.

    When i try adb reboot-bootloader all i it does is start reboot, i see the LG logo, then a black screen for abour 5-10 seconds then the verizon animation comes up and normal boots. We actually have a nandroid on irc.

    Apparently applying the update through the mobile updater doesnt wipe the custom recovery.

    Stupid question but did anyone think to try Universal Androot. I know Most likely it will fail since it failed on ZVC but it may be worth the shot.
    I mean you dont know till you try right?

    What about you Drellisdee.... you think you could cook up an app that would root it?
    Or maybe modify an existing one that would do the trick?

    Dots I know your busy right now but by chance have you tried to download flash 10.1?
    I know probably wishful thinking.

    Did a quick market search for flash and it's not in the market.
