    the only problem with bing, is that it has delayed this update.

    other then that.. ive owned my phone since launch and havent used it once.. what am i missing? I dont use the little bing search thing or the google thing.. if i want to search something i hit the browser and type it in. works flawlessly and takes a few seconds

    so i'm not exactly sure how it breaks the phone for anyone.

    It's mostly a principle thing. A lot of people believe that if they are using a Google phone, it should be able to use Google search built-in, not having to use workarounds.

    I'm still at 2.1-update1 but I have rooted my device. Do I have to roll back to stock (unrooted) in order for the 2.2 OTA update to work?

    As long as you haven't messed with any of the system files and apps (bloatware) then you should be fine. Being rooted alone won't block the OTA, but missing VZW apps and system files will

    Unless this is amazing, I'm probably going to stick to SC2.9

    I'm probably going to just stay put where I am on SC 2.9.2 I'm sure once the guys here get their hands on it, they will work their magic on it

    so are we going to see a superclean update soon, or does the 2.2.1 build EB01 pretty much have anything the official release offers?

    I updated to Froyo as soon as it came out here @ Android Central, I wouldn't even consider going back to Verizon's stock!

    speaking of... there's so many nightlies released anymore I would like advice as to if I should keep what I'm running or if there is a superior update ?! of course if the answer to my 1st ? is yes, guess I'll wait for that!
    I'm running:
    Firmware 2.2.1
    Baseband: sI500.04V.EB01
    Kernel 2.6.32.9
    Build SCH-I500.EB01

    Thanks

    The ED01 may "clean up" some issues that were present in EB01, but for the most part this shouldn't be too different. If you're happy with your setup, it probably ins't worth going back to stock to get a bloated OTA, and then have to wait for the devs to clean it up

    I use an awesome program called vlingo for my voice search, text/email by voice etc.. And when debinged I have it tied to the longpress of my search button.

    Newbie question: I am not rooted, use Launcher Pro, Beautiful Widgets, etc. Will the update wipe out all the stuff I've done with these apps/launchers, etc? No big deal if it does, it will give me a reason to play with my set up for the tenth time in a month!
    You will not see anything get wiped if you do an OTA update. You may need to update some of your apps to a Froyo version and also don't forget to update your GMail and Flash player to 10.2 once you get Froyo.

    With Bing on the phone, I hope the Dev can figure out how to get the Google VTT to work correctly.
