I am honestly at a loss here. I understand if you are on stock, its nice to get otas, probably a little exiting, the possibilities of getting something new, the anticipation. And then the inevitable disappointment. As ally users we have been repeated screwed by LG and VZW with ota updates that don't do anything we want (with the exception of froyo) adding bloatware and killing our joy and anticipation for these updates. And each time we drink the koolaid, coming back for more seemingly forgetting the last time VZW and LG rolled it over, greased it down, and drove it home. This VS740MVE update is a joke. It is 12mb, a good amount of this taken up by this "new" radio. Well the new radio image that we are all so hopeful to get better service with (I have alot of android devices, and I have NEVER got better service from a radio update) is nothing more than the VS740MVD.6040.1001 radio (from 2.2.1) with a different letter. A good amount of rooted users (not just ally users) have this misplaced obsession with OTA updates. Verizon and LG will not give you anything that you dont already have better with a custom rom, they will not give you a magical radio that gives you more bars. They will add more bloatware again and patch rooting holes. I have installed this OTA to see what it was all about, I have a system dump and a nandroid from VZE. I threw it away. The only thing we COULD use (the radio) was a sham. So stop wasting time, resources, and all of our time trying to recover your phone. And stop worrying about it. This being said I will not for any reason help anyone who updates to VZE, after looking at it NO aspects of VZE will be imported into velocity or any other project in which I am a part of (other than the version number for market purposes) If you break your phone, loose root, or just plain dont like VZE: You are on your own.
