    Does anyone know what version they will be sending out? I have a feeling it will be VV5 since it hasn't officially been released.

    I am surprised they are updating the Indulge, and even the Craft... I thought they abandoned those phones long long ago...

    The firmware they want to push to our phones is VV5. If you have a custom rom, root, or cant make it to a MetroPCS Corporate store for whatever reason and want the update; you can download the VV5 update and flash it from this very forum. VV5 will work with both first gen (ZV8-A type), and the newer VoLTE Connect 4G phones.

    The cab file for VV5 can be acquired [here]

    And then follow the instructions to flash it [here]

    and root for VV5 is located [here]

    You will have until August 11th to update to VV5 or you will lose data access. Also additionally, if you are moving from a custom rom to VV5 stock, I have found my data to be still intact from moving from Number Two to VV5. Although they do say for best performance it is wise to wipe data when moving from rom to rom.

    There's still some people that have them though and they were guaranteed that their phones would work till 2015

    It was the only Android phone with a keyboard on MetroPCS's lineup. They have not since added a comparable phone to that formfactor. When I moved from the Indulge to the Connect, I did consider sticking with the Indulge because of that. But then I took a look at the superior hardware, and how much of a POS the Indulge was (basically a burn for any early adopter). Then I pulled the trigger on the Connect.
