  • *This* is how you roll out an update!
  • Not part of the lucky 50% :( Oh well, I'll continue to wait :)
  • Looks like I was actually part of the lucky 50!!! Got Mango installed and it's beautiful!!! It feels like a new phone :P
  • same here, not lucky
  • You all should force the update its easy and takes about 1 hr. Why wait? I did it. And its pretty nice.
  • Mango is so September. I wanna know what's next! Feed me.
  • Had mango since day one of the rollout (yea I forced it) and its awesome!!!
  • If you're savvy enough to be following a forum like this, why haven't you forced the update yet?? From what I can tell, it poses no risks. I did it and am glad I did.I'd really like to know how many (%) users have forced the update, ahead of schedule. I wonder if they have that data. ?
