Fortunately, Android is blessed with a great developer community that keeps toiling so that the common user might get rid of such restrictions and other issues. I also found this thread which calmed me down as well before I felt like I was all over the internet pulling bits and pieces from everywhere. Can I get out of whats left of my two year contract, and upgrade my phone without a penalty? Anyway, good luck with your battle, Richard.
It certainly may not get anything in the latest development branch. And bringing my phone along for the ride. If anyone has a guide, feel free to drop it my way!
