    It would make sense, I had a feeling a lot of the fear was hype. At least now my testing has been cut in half... lol

    Nice! Glad they're not complete pricks after all :D

    But I will wait for someone to do the OTA and sbf to 2.3.340 before I do the OTA :D:D:D

    well to me actually it DOESN'T make sense...because previous OTA's took away the ability to SBF back

    I'm going to try it now.. see if I can get the ota. Take a look around and go from there. If I have to sbf back.. who cares? I don't.

    is it possible they are finally getting the hint that we're going to find a way to modify their devices no matter what they do, or buy someone else's stuff?
    Nah, they're corporate drones, they can't be intelligent. What was I thinking?

    Let us know how it goes.

    Also, if you can, upload the update for us, if you are even able to download it. That way we can use it ourselves if it works out for you :D

    I'd be willing to give it a try. But I'm super new and have no idea. OTA Gingerbread is running great, doing some tweaks now.

    cough *cowards* cough. ;) :p

    If someone tells me how to get the zip file and where/how to upload it, I'll do it. Just so you know, I have no megaupload-type accounts anywhere.

    He either went to bed or he's playing with some little japanese creature. One can never be too sure.

    EDIT: I know what you meen Met. One thing is for sure. Our devs are gonne be plenty busy over the next few weeks porting roms and themes over to the ota once a working root and sbf system is in place.

    P3 should have all the files uploaded in less than a half hour...

    chances are...us rooted users are going to have the OTA before it would have even been pushed to our phones lol
