    I have no idea if it's 6.1 until someone tries it lol.

    All I know is that an update was ready for download from motorola rsd at 7/29/08. About a week after the att q global update was available. In this regard, I am guessing it is 6.1. Just to clarify, I didn't mention 6.1 on my post in the other thread. I said, latest update ;)

    1. Why have two versions just for different colored phones?
    I have no idea. But there are two downloadable versions of the update. Same date but different file. So I gave you guys both.

    2. Is it possible to see the file on the rsddownldownload.motorola.com site rather than a direct link?

    No. The only possible way to download any file from that site is if you know the exact name of the file you want to download. As to how I know the filename, i'm psychic ;)

    3. Should this be moved to the Alltel forum?

    You obviously already did mate.

    It could have stayed undetected for much longer if you didn't ask me about it lol.

    So have you tested the file yet?

    Thanks for the update Vermsky and for your work on this, not to mention you physic abilities!

    It was too late for me to run this last night and now I'm at work so for me it will have to wait until later, plus I'm a little worried as this is my only phone!

    Anyone have a spare Alltel Q9c that they would like to test it out on first! :)

    Geekster, how about you? Oh no, you're still on a Q that's so old it's called a P! :)

    Some people have died for their humor, can't think of any off the top of my head but I'm sure that there have been!

    Grrr, I really want to take the plunge but really don't want a lime colored brick either! I would be right in thinking that if it goes wrong I'm screwed aren't I?

    OK, I went ahead and did it, it was very scary!


    The good news: It worked
    The bad news: It's only version 6.0
    The good news: If I ever need to get my phone back to it's original settings if I screw it up in the future I'll be able too.

    So now vermsky I need you to get your physic hat on again to see if you can find any other Alltel files :laugh2:

    Can you see if they have the same date on them, if they do it's bound to be the same but if the date for the licorice file is after that of the lime then I'll try it.

    May as well before I start putting all my applications back on it.

    Same date. It might be 6.0 as well. Don't worry, I'll keep my psychic powers on for you.

    Yes, I think the only difference between them is going to be the homescreens that match the colors of the phone so I'll leave it until your 'powers' find something else.

    Appreciate your assistance on this.
