    I completely disagree that "obviously it will be glitchy". OTAs are a great way to go. Coupla things... I think (think!) that I read here that one of the reasons independent developers can't literally produce an OTA style (non-destructive) package is because, although they have full access to the OS, I don't think they have full access to the code behind HTC and Verizon specific apps/widgets (i.e. "Sense", "My Verizon", "NFL Mobile", "Mobile Hotspot", "Voicemail", etc.). So, the devs can't really produce a non-destructive OTA style package. Verizon/HTC of course have access to all that code and can coordinate it during development to be compatible before release. That's why you see so many independent ROMs lacking in the above mentioned apps/functions.

    I think that VZW/HTC do a great job on OTA non-destructive updates. I've had no issues. Yay, VZW and HTC!

    So when you got the ota that killed everybody's voicemail notifications yours still worked? VZW had to send out another ota to cure that glitch. Many people experienced other glitches as well.

    Well, really, I will admit that all software has glitches. But I'm just trying to get across that I find no reason to believe that an OTA will contain any more glitches than an independent developer ROM. In fact, I believe less. But that's just me. And, an OTA is non-destructive.
