    is this an update, or the upgrade? I thought the 2.2 upgrade was too big to do OTA?
    Couldn't have said it better myself, very great analogy:

Just like back in the 60's, the old black and white CRT TV's could not magically receive color broadcasts just because the networks started broadcasting in color. You had to have a new color TV to receive the wondrous color TV shows.

    Seems like there's an upgrade to 2.2 on the Metro market. My buddy just tried to go through the download but he can't get it installed, maybe because he is rooted?

    Nevermind. It installed it. it being the app. What the app is is an updater. Since outr network is too slow to do an OTA push, you use this app to basically pull the OTA 2.2 upgrade through

    I installed the app. However it keeps saying that my phone is up to date, even though my firmware is 2.1. Is this happening to anybody else?

    theres no hoops really. They are smart in releasing this app. They know the 2.2 update is too big to push OTA, and the expense of having reps possibly screw up a customers or phone, or god forbid make available only at a corporate store. This to me is a sign that the update will be available soon.

    Yeah, then it will slowly download the real OS update over a week or two week's time... then by July have 2.2 on your phone.

    Microsoft and others used to do this back in the old dial-up days -- which MetroPCS speeds sometimes are. They would push the updates incrementally to save bandwidth, so you could still use your computer while it was slowly downloading bits and pieces in the background over several days time.
    Your creed may be interesting, but your deeds are much more convincing.

    that would be the case, except that it requires your phone to be connected to WiFi, so it wont be slow lol

    So, we're finally getting the 2.2 upgrade? FANTASTIC! CM7 is good, but having an *official* upgrade is sweet, too.
