    I believe a few people have already said they would donate a total of $130 to the gentleman if it works.

    Saying you will give someone money if something is real and works is a wager my friend.

    Wow, um no. Asking anyone if they want to wager on the legitimacy of this, I'm asking anyone if they want to bet whether or not this guy and his cousin have a solution or not.

    If they ask about the 2.1 being installed, tell them that you got an OTA notification that said that you were a special beta tester for a new firmware version.

    thats was my plan. that or play dumb. just "nah man...i got the message saying i had an upgrade and followed the directions. idk what your talking about"

    im going to throw home on before i get into the store though. its the simplest and most basic, least chance of them noticing something to make them want to check the firmware version.

    If a thread was closed, there's a good reason for it. Starting another identical thread again with no proof, is just re-fueling the fire. It won't stop people from asking and makes it that much more difficult to find something using search.

    The start of the thread was the downfall, and continued snowballing with wager arguments on if this is real/fake... AGAIN. Here's to you for paying attention.

    You know, being a troll on your first couple of posts isn't a good way to make friends around here...

    buddy trident is the one who closed my original thread because people were fighting and getting ugly.
    we needed an update, trident gave it to us. would you prefer he PM'ed everyone separately?
