    Hmmm..... This is what T-Mo is saying on Twitter:
    "...near future..." could mean "in the next few hours" or weeks.

    Maybe this was supposed to be for dev phones only... But why push OTA to dev phones? Or maybe it was an accidental release, and T-Mo is putting the genie back in the bottle.

    OR... it's just s...l.......o............w getting out.

    Why bother using twitter if it isn't going to be soon? I hate twitter... And technically that message was only on the T-mobile page and appears to be from someone else.

    Hopefully it will be sooner than later.

    Cupcake is a lie.

    ;)

    I didn't see anything about flash updates in the video posted from youtube. Will we still not have a flash player?

    As far as I recall, flash was not in the cupcake branch, but may be available later in 2009.
     

  10. Flash is not google hence the reason it is not in the update...

    *EDIT*
    If you are still having issues go to the IRC channel #androidforums and I'll help you out the best I can... you may have to do an alt+w before the alt+s on your first install to cupcake as well... sometimes it hangs if you don't....

    The message was from T-Mobile's twitter account. It was directed at someone else. Actually, they tweeted the same message to at least one other user...

    I think people should be recieving it already. I also think we'd see a lot more stuff about it on the internet if that were the case. I dont know what's going on but Im about two weeks away of rooting. Cupcake is mine when I got the time.

    I am about this weekend away from rooting. Seriously, I'm just tired of waiting for the update, and if it's out there in the wild now, I might just try my hand @ it this weekend or next.

    Seriously.

    which will end up never happening apparently.
    If it takes this long for the cupcake to be served and consumed by android users, how long til the adobe flash cake?!?

    rooting your phone is worth it for this.. so worth it.
    first off, you can tether your phone, (streaming internet as a wi-fi connection so you can recieve internet on your laptop)

    its fast, fast enough to play World of Warcraft or stream movies no problem.
    Proof: and this is at a high volume time of night. during the day or really late at night i get almost 2MB download and 500KBps upload.

    [​IMG]

    And the cupcake update itself is more than a reason to root. trust me. and there are easy to follow guides on the XDA developers forum.
     
  23. you don't have to go to XDA to learn how to root... great guide right here on this site if you just search here's the link http://androidforums.com/developer-101/3252-rooting-quick-guide-updated-3-10-09-a.html

    Well I couldn't wait. Rooted my wifes G1(Couldn't test it on my own) and installed cupcake. Worked great. Now playing around with the new features. Then off to root mine and install 1.5 on mine. Love it so far. Always been afraid to play with the root thing but hey it's late and its my wifes phone. Yeah!
