    Hope they make it downloadable. Since the ROM/Radio builds are identical is it possible OTA will not work for those that have the v3 leak?

    I'm kinda bummed if v3 is the OTA, still some small bugs that should be fixed. Like signal bars and 50% sig issue.

    This is interesting, and it looks like the best evidence we have seen for awhile on the OTA. The people who say its not coming are flat out wrong. This, along with 4 different leaks are proof that its on the way.

    Being that the build number is the same I would imagine if you installed leak 3 there is no updated required since you're already running the official software.

    Well, they do have instructions.

    I think there are a few things on that list that aren't in V3.

    Good point! I'm surprised then that the build number is identical. I hope they did make some tweeks to it do to the fact that some have had issues.:D

    Now the question is will those on the leaks get the OTA? Of course we won't know until it's actually released.

    We should still be able to obtain it some way, or the least we can do is go to Verizon with our 2.1v3 phones and complain that they don't have things the OTA has (but tell them that we got the OTA anyway ;) ), and get new phones.

    LOL! Yeah I'm fairly certain we will be able to load this the same as the leaks. The great thing is now if we have a hardware issue they can't say we voided our warranty.
