im on MP_BSP_C_02.07.61-49P_HW_P2.1
and need MP_BSP_C_02.07.61-69P_HW_P2.1

Has someone made an .exe or something that I can flash from bootloader?

Well something is obviously wrong with the phone as I cant even hard reset it. It gives an error. Called Sprint tech, they are sending a replacement.

gman, its not that hard cause its not there! You choose carrier, then device, then download their stupid update program. There is no option to choose a purchase date. Unless you show me some proof, thanks for your useless post!

I want this info. as well. It seems as if Motorola and Sprint team up to screw their customers any way they can.

Bump for an answer. I can't send text messages anymore because I tried installing Smms and it requires this software update to run.
