    For what it is worth, spoke with an HTC rep today and he told me that the gingerbread update is in testing right now and should be out during the summer.

    Provided AT&T approves it.

    You gotta be kidding... really? That long? Hm. Still getting used to Froyo anyway, so an update might interrupt it. Ah well.

    Thanks for the info, anyhow.

    Well it would have to go through gingerbread first. Just because something was announced doesnt mean its comming out right away. Especially if your device still is on froyo

    i want to root... but i have a mac and there is no "1 Click" method yet.. so dont bash us people who havent rooted. coming from iphone and blackberry, rooting is a whole different beast than jailbreaking or installing a "leaked OS"
    dont get me wrong, i absolutely love my phone, i could never go back to iphone the screen looks minuscule to me and everything is so standard, where as with my android i can switch launchers and theoretically get a "new phone" when i get bored..

    but that being said, i have read forums on rooting, and while i would love to do it, its very very confusing. goldcards, S OFF, what does it even mean, and me being on a mac means i would have to use terminal (which im not amazing with) makes me nervous im going to brick my phone...

    if you guys know an easy way to root on a mac please let me know

    Didn't google make a new pact with some of the phone makers to provide updates for 18 months? I thought I saw that somewhere.

    Yea they are teaming up with ask the manufacturers to provide updates in a timely manner to phones for at least the first 18 months of the phones life cycle. No telling when that'll be implemented though.

    All this talk about when Gingerbread may be coming, but nobody has said what's better about Gingerbread? Is there a discussion out there that highlights the differences between Froyo and GB?

    I'm actually not looking forward to the Gingerbread update because that will mean wading through a dozen threads with 100+ posts each from people complaining that they didn't get the update within 30 seconds of it being released

    A simple solution would be to not visit the forum. wink wink. I didn't realize it's everyones job to keep you happy. And yes, if AT&T can' t manage to get it's head out of it' s arse, it' s gonna happen here. Of course, a Gingebread upgrade on an AT&T device is something we don' t have to worry about until Icecream Sandwich comes out.
