Like the title says, the official Froyo update is finally released! It can be downloaded straight from acer.ca under "Service & Support" and in the "Download Center". Just find our Liquid support page and click the "OS" tab and then choose "Froyo 2.2" under the drop down menu. Apparently you need the stock ROM to use the updates... but if you wait a bit and let the dust settle over at MoDaCo, you can do this on any ROM soon (seems like you already can but better wait for more confirmations from testers)

Supposedly, it's older (Oct 5) than the most recent leak from Nov.. but more refined, a real official ROM vs. a leak after all. Reported snappier, better battery, and more stable.

Versions with less bloatware and porting for the A1 are now available:

Be warned that users who aren't on FIDO/Roger's network will have their phone simlocked, without any solution to sim-unlock

Have seen a lot of people saying it doesn't work, but it was some time ago, so maybe now it's working, but take care !

unlock
would this help unlock the phone?

Has anyone unlocked a Liquid E yet? How about sim unlocking it and then updating it to 2.2. Would that lock it again?

Yes, it would lock it again.

The ebay link would not work, as you IMEI won't be a ROGER'S one, so they won't be able to unlock your device. (Not totally sure about this, but pretty sure)

The fido rom on that thread has a build date of Oct, 30. Same date as the latest leak. Check it out. It's the one I'll be using.

Sorry I couldn't repost the link, because I'm new here. First page on this thread.

All three of the roms on modaco are already sim unlocked. Have been changed from 1 to 0. Check it out for yourself. I haven't heard of anyone locking there phone with the modaco roms. If you use the acer roms, consider your phone locked. A few people have done that I'm sure.
