    When the offiicial ota update hits it will possibly include froyo but there is also a chance (maybe 50/50) that it will lock us out of root. If it doesn't this post is a moot point.


    Now you can't get a rom with the leaked update because of the change in radio performed to the phone, but you could always get a rom with just stock froyo (w/sense) ripped from it.

    Meaning: If the update closes the "hole" to root, you will have to revert to stock, install the leaked ota update, than install the stock froyo rom after someone rips it for us.

    So just a heads up for those that have the leaked update, just sit tight and see what the future holds before you unistall something you may need.

    developer phones got the OTA update... so the next update (froyo?) is going to have to be able to go over the "current" OTA update

    Assuming they know about the brick problem. They may not. HTC didn't know about it with the Evo until Sprint relased it OTA.

    I was just about to say the same thing. People are afraid that the new OTA could brick them. Personally I would not accept any OTA until it has been rooted if necessary. I suppose others may not care and just want the latest.

    That is not really safe logic, go read through the Eris leak threads. Replacing a few phones is nbd, better than having thousands of pissed off customers.
