    Cool When can we expect an OS update for Verizon 9550?

    I was just wondering if anyone knows when a new official OS will be released for the 9550 for Verizon. How often do they update the software? I am just worried about putting .428 on my storm cuz I have never done it. Does it void the warranty if you put the leaked version on it?

    Just a few questions and any input would be appreciated.

    Welcome to the Forums, but sorry, your guess would be as good as ours - but I hope, it will not take too much more time.

    Re. warranty, I'm no legal expert here, but I think there is a certain risk. On the other hand - if your device is not completely destroyed when you have to call your carrier for a warranty issue, you could always go back to their latest official OS prior to doing so.

    Breiti is right. No one really knows when the carrier will release a new OS. Putting a leaked version on your phone doesn't void your warrenty. You would just have to go back to the stock OS. The only thing putting a leak on does is stop you from getting support if you call in and have the OS on the phone. You can easily revert though. And welcome to bbos.

    Yes and no
    .428 is a full OS - but since no official DL is available so far, it is called leak. Yet, it is a full OS where you only need to delete the vendor.xml on your PC prior to install. Imho many liked the OS, but since there are already newer versions for other devices out there, many went on to go for a hybrid. Hybrids are a combination of different OS version files generated by some very clever ppl to improve the performance of an OS.

    "When can we expect an OS update for Verizon 9550?" Simple answer...when hell freezes over. Don't count on one soon. They are slow as heck getting updates out the door. You will be much better off going with 428 for now. It's a better OS.

    Well its warm in the Northeast and since Verizon is a Jersey based company . . . hell hasn't frozen over yet. The comment I got from support was last month, but I took that as wishful thinking and water cooler gossip. Honestly, Verizon could care less about OS updates if they can force you to buy a new phone.
