    ... but it still won't contain source for some of Samsung's proprietary drivers.

    Only that this is no panacea for all the "2.X" dreams that keep getting floated around here (and giving people false hope, IMO).

    ... and that's what I mean- w/o the proprietary drivers, which we will not get, you have a Science experiment, NOT a complete phone. Remember how we all got on the case of that guy who was going "All y'all need to do is go download the 2.0 SDK, and you just have to put that on your phone?"

    I know that several changes to driver and kernel interfaces (things like additional sysfs entries, etc.) are required for 2.X and while they're easy enough to add to the drivers for which we have source, they'll be fairly impossible for those we don't- so whatever non-Samsung 2.X release we get will be feature-deficient; as I said "false 2.X hopes" unless someone just wants whatever one ends up with just for the "hack factor" (which has it's points, for sure).

    Again, not panning y'all's efforts- but we sure need a mole within Samsung or Sprint somewhere (like the XDA guys have at HTC) if y'all really wish to make progress. (But I did get a chuckle from that thread about someone demanding Samsung release those drivers' source via the GPL/GPL2 and CCing the EFF(?) too. Yeah, good luck with that.)

    i saw a thread requesting the kernel source be released for CL14, the same as it was released for CJ05. it was appropriately titled, Attempting to get a copy of CL14 opensource code
    they were successful in obtaining a release date, which is quite amazing given the vague dates (1H2010 for Android 2.1) and update statuses Samsung and Sprint have both provided.

    i haven't seen a thread about demanding proprietary drivers be released?

    Does anyone know what software the repair stores use to install this update? So far two days in a row I get the story that the software to install this update isn't working...I think I'm being bullshitted by this store

    You can't demand proprietary drivers to be released.. Those are not covered under any GPL and are confidential source by the manufacturer... the drivers are worthless in the end.. it is the control modules that actually take the driver raw data and utilize it for a function.. these control modules are what are open source... it is possible to modify the control module to utilize the driver in the 2.x build, but we need to know exactly how the driver file works inorder to modify it.. this is where hte problem comes into play (atleast from my understanding)...

    Depending on the store it is either Futuredial ICSS or Futuredial RMS which then has to be used to call a stripped down odin specific for the moment... We have both of these, but we dont have hte driver dongle to unlock icss so we cant get the sprint stripped odin to work...

    BTW... Cl14 source code was released today
    Because in general... if you are good with technology and/or getting stuff to work.. you wouldn't be working a local sprint repair center.. you would be making better money in R&D or at a large company doing IT...
    Thats like expecting the people at geek squad to actually be able to tell the difference between a bad screen vs a faulty inverter board (had it happen to my ex.. they told her rthe screen needed to be replaced.. i replaced the inverter board for a couple bucks and worked great)
