Hi. I saw the deal. But firmware for eDge Android 2.2 is not available - right? The Entourage servers are shut off. If I could find an upgrade to 2.2 in zip, I would pull the trigger. Does anyone know if this firmware is anywhere but on servers that have been shut down?

Any other excuses to blow money on shiny electronics are welcome.

Same here, only I bought my second one off eBay(new) a few months ago for $100 +10 shipping. I still want a Asus eee tranformer!

Can you provide a link? I did quite a bit of looking and all I saw was entourage links. The Entourage servers are shut down.

This post has other links: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=134237

I downloaded the 2.2 update a couple of days ago from the dustyfeet link within this message. Just verified it is still up. There is also a torrent link within the thread.

And yeah - I picked up 3 more for the kids so my husband and I can have ours back!

That in itself should be a good reason to ask for a refund as the product is not fully functional anymore

Thanks. I don't know how to handle a torrent. Is "Golden" the last stable version at dustyfeet to download?

LOL I can't believe the price. I looked at it and I got the itchy trigger finger then I realized, I still have the one I paid 119 for, still sitting in a box so I came to my senses. I was going to put it up on ebay since I mostly use the EE, but its so cute, its hard for me to part with it.
