    I got my unlocked Pre 2 and put it in developer mode to get to the menu's (before you ask, I managed to get a sim card from a friend at Verizon so that I could get to the phone screen and enter the code for developer mode).

    Here's the thing: I have a Pre with Sprint so I have no intention or need to activate with another carrier. I'm using it strictly for app development. I want to know if there's a way to update to 2.1 over WiFi.

    I've connected it to my wireless router in the house and been able to go online and everything but when I put it in Update mode it just searches for hours.

    Does anyone know if there's either a manual way to install 2.1 or if there's a way to get it over WiFi.

    Thanks.

    The Sprint Pre will only get updated via the metadoctor steps you will find in the thread that discusses how to do it.
