    LOL... this thread is descending into the realm of stupidity.

    Next thing you know, we'll be buzzing the rooftops of Manhattan skyscrapers with an F-16 and a 747 decked out like Air Force One so that we can take a picture of it because, you know... Photoshop just wouldn't work.

    Dont even get this board/thread started on how stupid that idea was. I'm in downtown NYC. Trust me, that was not a good idea.

    That is correct! And if vzw releases it, no need to delete vendor.xml for vzw users
    Unless of course you are a Telus or Bell Subscriber, then you WILL need to delete the vendor.xml file.
    redundant... lol

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. You really don't know what you're talking about sometimes (even all the time). Stop generalizing things because it's not 100% correct. People are running into issues installing the OSs because they run into issues. They can't even properly load an official release of the OS on their phones, not because of the OS's fault, but because of USER ERROR. Sure, some of these early releases have "bugs" in them, that's the point of us testing them and seeing how the progression goes. People know (or should know) not to expect a pre-release version to be 100% perfect as they should know that an official release version won't be 100% perfect and bug free either. The thing to remember here is, a lot of the issues people are running into are mostly their own fault, not the fault of the OS. If you actually took the time to correlate between OS bugs vs upgrade issues by users, you would have noticed that most people had issues because THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING! This fact WILL NOT change when an official release comes out. The only thing that will help these lost souls a bit better is that a "hold my hand" OTA release will happen which would do the whole upgrade process for them automatically. This will help some, but not all, as some of the brainless bunch out there may actually try to do an OTA update without having their handsets plugged into power and could botch the installs in that manner. As you can see, the probability of something going wrong is out there and that probability increases or decreases as you factor in the intelligence of the person doing the update.

    Bottom line, don't pass judgement on something that's clearly not as black and white as you make it out to be. I mean seriously, we still have people asking how to get the browser back after an OS update, AND THIS IS SOMETHING THAT'S NORMAL AND NOT AN ISSUE WITH UPGRADES OR DOWNGRADES. It's as normal as waking up in the morning.
    100% correct!!! But even with user knowledge, it has been proven that each device reacts differently to OS updates, which should also be factored in into your observations as this can generate various results as well

    Is it out yet? Is it out yet? Is it out yet? Is it out yet? Is it out yet?

    Feel like that everytime I hit the refresh button on the browser and check for updates on the phone.

    heck i'll wait for a .141 hybrid

    Anways you don't have to downgrade anything, just back up your data and apps, wipe your device and load a fresh install of the latest

    I nominate this for post of the year so far. Wait to go Civic! I dont even want an ota upgrade. Just give me my files like I am used to getting them, and let me run my msi installer just like normal!! I will probably end up deleting the vendor file, just out of habit, before running my app loader

    It is a discussion of an OS that the version has almost been confirmed and almost released, so I feel the thread is on topic to par

    There should be a new Os coming. Time will tell but I am excited. Hope when it drops if it does they do it in the evening. It would make much more sense. Most people who use blackberries are professionals who would normally be working from 9 to 5. So we should see by the end of the night.
