    Yeah, this "ZC" guy at VZWSupport's Twitter page again changed his tune (as of 830am EDT 5/24/2010), and now says leakers WILL receive the official update...

    1. @vlinkous614 It was a miscommunication in information relayed to me. You will have the ota update sent to you. *ZC 1 minute ago via web
    2. @vlinkous614 You should still receive the update on your phone. *ZC 30 minutes ago via web
    3. @yabocedarhill Within the next few days. *ZC 31 minutes ago via web
    4. @The_Real_St_459 Within the next few days. *ZC 31 minutes ago via web
    5. @xXDiZmAtIcXx There are a few days left no worries. *ZC 32 minutes ago via web i
    6. @PhishChica Users with leak will still receive the OTA update. *ZC 33 minutes ago via web
    7. @papajon2 All eris owners should receive the link in the last few days of the rollout. *ZC 34 minutes ago via web

    strange... I guess the real question is how much should we get on their case if we dont have it by today (the date they had told me on twitter a week and a half ago...)

    Guess we just play the waiting game again!

    must be taking out the cupcake 1.5 block then. They said this week we all should get it. Wondering if the first update got everybody to 2.1 base now adding another one for the rest of the stuff.

    I think all of us leakers are going to collectively nerdgasm if we do actually receive the update today.

    OTA bug fixes.
  13. Is that implying you got the ota on a leaked phone?

    Support from VZW for bugs... continued support and not being "left behind" on *possible* future patches.. etc.
    At least thats why *I* want to receive the OTA. Having it be an "official" release at least gives me satisfaction that there will be support behind it.

    My Eris is working fine... I'm just worried about the long haul... I've never had a phone last me an entire year without messing up...

    Meh at this point I think there are just messing with people. With as many times as they change their minds, pretty much on a daily bases. Just wait a few hours and it'll probably change again.
    Either that or they have a magic 8 ball that they defer to every time a person asks about the leak. :cool:

    I think if they are tweeting that you have til the end of the day today and NO ONE so far has come in and said they got it by now, it is more BS that people are following on Twitter..

    I could be wrong, but....

    rofl :rolleyes:

    I like my phone on v3. I'm afraid the OTA will screw it up :p

    Sounds to me like they are releasing a bug fix for 2.1 which will have a higher version number than the current OTA 2.1 (which is the same ver # as leak 2.1) which will force leakers phones to get the OTA update.

    Just my thoughts. Also probably won't be today.

  22. I agree, I think leakers will have to manually load the file, but they will eventually be on the same page as the rest of us. I also think they are waiting for everyone to be up and running 2.1, then send out a patch for the bugs.

    sounds like they're just covering their Public Relations asses for ZC being completely out of line yesterday by suggesting we try installing ROMs for the TMobile G1 and any other ROM we could get our hands on...

    we get the ota.

    we don't get the OTA and we voided our warranty.

    we get the OTA.

    I honest put 0 faith in what that idiot at vzwcluelessupport has to say.
    Someone explain to me how you isolate just the leakers to update them seperately. The HBOOT version is different yes, but can you check that info with the OTA scripts?

    to give ZC the benefit of the doubt, he was probably thinking "leakers" was the same as "root"... I kinda feel bad for him/her today, acting like a dog with its tail between its legs
