    VZW Pushing out new OS for Storm???



    Ladies and gentleman please check your flame throwers at the door. From our friends over at Boy Genius Report, they are reporting that 4.7.0.141 is here (according to one of their inside sources at VZW). This rumor was started yesterday and word is that VZW is releasing this only via OTA. You can read the full article here:

    definitely. i've been satisfied with leaks and hybrids. these official update rumors are always just rumors. it would be sweet, but i'll believe it when i see it.
    i would turn it all in for late nights and impossible dreams.

    I really hope they dont make this OTA only. ... i removed that feature with shrink-a-os, lol. besides, a real install is much better anyways seeing as 80% of us probably wont be using the full OS anyways. Meh.
    also.. ditto to the ill believe it when i see it... which likely means ill never believe it. God i feel sorry for the poor-non-tech-savvy storm owners stuck with verizons .75. Moment of silence for them all please, thanks

    I may be wrong but I think for the OTA to work, you would have to downgrade to .75 so OTA see's it as an upgrade. Similar to DM doesn't recognize beta's as upgrades, only .75 is. Again, I could be wrong, but I believe thats the case.

    I am about as sure as you are (lol), but I don't think this is the case. From pretty reliable sources over on CrackBerry, they say we can install an OTA over whatever we want.

    The biggest issue is, many of us have removed the OTA out of our OS in order to shrink it down lulz

    Haha nope... I was up all night last night playing around with my new OS, too. It figures it would go this way, huh?

    Although, I'm not complaining Bring on a new OS daily and I won't complain! lol.

    But as always with VZW, I wouldn't consider this "certain" until it's on your phone. I personally believe it, as I have heard people I trust say it over at CB (a few of them), but I wouldn't EVER put my reputation on the line when VERIZON and a STORM OS are used in the same sentence

    Ok, because I thought I read that it would upgrade over a leak because it couldn't tell if it was an upgrade. Thanks for clearing it up.

    Shane I have read the same thing that in order for OTA to work that one would need to be an official OS, in this case .75. I am not 100% sure but will do research on this as I remember this being posted somewhere.

    LOL, You can mess yours up, but you prolly got the devil for messing up her's. Next time just ask one of us for some help. I'm sure with the people helping here, there is pretty much nothing we havn't seen or fixed.
