    Ok so i have a mac, and i am running parallels. I have connected my phone to the virtual machine, and am currently trying to install the 2.1 upgrade. It has been about 30 minutes and it still says 0% at erasing user data. Bu the dots are still moving as if it is working, just nothing has happened otherwise... I have not touched the phone or cord or anything of the like....is this normal? The phone itself just shows the HTC logo with a black background like it does on startup. Im worried. I have all my texts/pictures/apps/contacts backed up already, but should i just let it sit like this overnight or what....

    Normal install of the official 2.1 are reported to take 10-15 minutes total.
    Hope this helps.
    Good Luck!

    If you have time to kill, take it to a Sprint store & let them do it. Got mine back in less than an hour.
