    Thumbs up d2a...That's what I tried explaining before. I got my gb update for my d2 2 months after people with the same phone in the same city as me.... They do it by IMEI so newer phones get it later than older ones.

    From what i'm getting, the ICS update is currently rolling out, by region, as of yesterday. Not one person has gotten the update, and they aren't going by IMEI anymore. This is all what I got. Sounds like a load of BS. It could be that no one has reported it, or maybe the servers just can't do all three at a time. Whatever it is, sound a little fishy. Whatever though, I'll still be waiting!

    I find it hard to believe vz dumped their method of ota rollout for this one project. My guess is there are some misinformed reps @ vz.

    I think we shouldn't be expecting an update release date for the spectrum since the phones that are rolling the update right now ( HTC rezound HTC droid incredible 2 Motorola droid 4) released a release date on the same day it started rolling out... I have my hopes that it does officially roll out before the end of September which may or may not be true but until then I will have to enjoy fiddling with the amazing update of ice cream sammiches on my Motorola xoom tablet

    It'll happen when it happens. Besides, you won't have root until someone finds the exploit, so do you really want the ota the second its released? I sure don't. I like my rooted and debloated phone.

    there are already several root methods for ics on the spec. I would expect to see them released pretty soon after it become official

    I assume they were found off the leak, and so do you know if they're going to work on the ota? I'd imagine lg/vz plugged any holes found in the leaked version.

    No I don't think so. The root methods were not released publicly. No way for verizon to know how it worked.

    I've seen even just rooting block an OTA. It knows something isn't right and it bails.

    That would be a first for me. It's usually because a rooted phone has system apps removed rather than frozen.

    Just wanted to add that given the poor sales of the spec as evidenced by the price drops why wouldn't ics be released? It seems to me that by doing so the sales odd the device would probably increase allowing VZW to get rid of add much of their inventory as they can. I know when I asked people to check last time obviously it wasn't there but I'd appreciate it off someone can check again tomorrow x thanks guys!
