    I apologize profusely for this, but I cannot seem to find it through search. I am looking for the download for the official 2.1 so that I can overwrite my v3 leak. Can anyone point me to the thread with the download?

    Thanks,

    If you've installed one of the 2.1 leaks, then you cannot install another ROM (because you aren't rooted and/or can't root). The 2.1 leaks have a 1.49 S-ON (security-ON) HBOOT bootloader that prevents flashing new custom ROMs.

    The 2.1 RUU and the "leak v3" install completely identical software on the phone, but sometimes a placebo is all you need.

    Keep in mind that using the RUU is EXACTLY the same as what you did with the leak version 3, sans the - release keys in the build number. Verizon is using the RUU to update all of the refurbs etc, and the difference between the RUU and the OTA, is the OTA performs an update (Leaving the bootloader intact) And the ruu performs a clean install (updating bootloader) The leak is simply the file thats within the RUU, minus the release keys.

    I completely understand everyone, just need the placebo effect of having the official and trying a few new things as well.
    Thanks!
