    TeamAndIRC tweeted that Gingerbread for the TBolt is in phase 2 testing at Verizon. Don't know what phase 2 testing is, but certainly good news.

    There is another piece of info regarding GB update that shouldn't go unnoticed either:

    @TeamAndIRC: Thunderbolt users, if you want root, root now before the next OTA. All publicly known temproot exploits are patched in it.

    Yes, along with Gtalk video. Aside, why would you want to video chat with a Macbook? All Macbooks will say back is that buying half-eaten fruit from strangers is the "hip" thing to do...
    Apple Motto 2010: "Buying half-eaten fruit from strangers is the hip thing to do!"
    Apple Motto 2011: "You'll buy it no matter what we say."
    And on the OP... to be honest, I am not even sure what "Phase 2" testing is... my team has never classified testing in phases. We run hardware diagnostics, software diagnostics/stability tests, then the actual performance tests (a.k.a. "torture" test).

    Based on that, you could say "Phase 2" is stability tests, but "Phase 1" (hardware) is not even needed since its just an update, so would "Phase 2" really be "Phase 3" (performance tests)? And what about my damn sandwich? Yeah, now you see why we do not label them in phases... writing that made my eyes bleed.

    My personal guess is, we'll start hearing frequent rumors about the update releasing some time in late August, but it won't actually come out until September or October.

    I thought it was already publicly announced that we would see gingerbread before the bionic release which is suspected early August. I don't know why they would patch root exploits when they (HTC) said they wouldn't lock any boot loaders any more because users have the right to customize...Course it could all be Verizon's doing.

    Yeah, it would be nice to have some Gingerbread love for my TBolt, but they can take their sweet *** time if they need be. The last update has made my phone work a lot better and seems snappier now. Other than the garbage Facebook for Android app (I said screw it, I'll use Friendcaster even if it has adds in it), everything has been working great on my TBolt. I am looking forward to the new Skype with Video. I miss having it when I was using the unofficial leaked apk on the TBolt before the last update...

    All theses rumors are a waste of time anyway, cause a friend if mine said that the Death star would be complete by the middle of August and earth is on a short list of test planets. If Gingerbread can't make me fly then I got no use for it.

    Because it's two different things really. Patching the root exploits is more of a security fix, it doesn't mean that they still won't unlock the boot loader.

    Yes but the evo has been waiting for 2 months to be re rootd so if you want to root do it soon.

    from page 5 of a document titled;
    "Verizon Wireless Technical Statement in Response to Skype Petition"

    located at; http://files.ctia.org/pdf/Comments_V...iggins_407.pdf

    Phase 2 testing brings the devices back into Verizon Wireless' labs, so that we can conduct our own testing on the following services: Bluetooth, BREW, SMS, Enhanced Message Services (EMS), MMS, Wireless Application Protocol (WAP), data throughput (uplink and downling), data connectivity, battery utilization, standby time, Over the Air Service Provisioning (OTASP), and OTAPA, FOTA, PTT (if applicable), BREW pre-load applications, user interface, LBS, MediaFLO, call processing origination/terminations, and long call test. In addition, an internal user trial is also conducted during Phase 2 compliance testing. The internal trial is designed to collect more subjective feedback on the overall performance of the handset and its associated applications.

    After phase 2 device approval is complete, Verizon Wireless device teams review all the test results to make a determination whether fixes to the device are so critical that a launch delay is required, or if minor adjustments to the device can be made after launch. If there are no "show stoppers" for a device, it receives technical approval and is permitted to be placed into queue for future retail distribution. At no time in history of validating device specifications and performence of a handset and its associated applications, have the Verizon Wireless device teams ever encountered a new device that required no modification from the original specifications submitted by a device vendor prior to the launch of the device...

    it then goes into a good deal of marketing mumbo-jumbo about why Verizon's phased testing and feedback makes the products that they bring to market, better than that of their competitors.
