    Word up...

    I've done a little search and couldn't see if this has already been posted... so...

    I've rooted my phone using the jesusfreke RC9 build. Will this block me getting the 1.5 upgrade OTA? If so, anyone have any idea when the JF 1.5 build will be out?

    Cheers guys.

    I'm sure I answered this question before somewhere before...maybe it wasn't on these forums... o.o

    I'm pretty sure you wouldn't get the OTA update...you would need to manually update it...

    Thanks RozzaC, yeah it is on these forums, i was just searching for the wrong things.... turns out i wont get the update, but there are updates already available for rooted phones....

    Now i need to find out if the current 1.5 updates for rooted phones that are out there are feature complete, stable and which one is the best....

    Well if I remember correctly with the RC9 (or RC33 in US) update...

    Eventually...someone will post the OTA update somewhere so you can download it and put it on your phone...

    The fun part is those of us that are waiting for JF to release his because I'm currently running RC33 with the Apps>SD mod and I figure why not just stick with what worked before.

    I'm patient since we all only waited since what Last year? ;)
