Sprint Telling Techs to Flash Epics With Leaked Froyo Back to Eclair

An anonymous tip has just come in from the world of Sprint PCS. Rumor has it that Sprint is, unofficially, telling its technicians that if a Samsung Epic comes in for repair running the leaked build of Froyo, they are supposed to flash it back to Eclair (2.1).

I’m not exactly sure how legal that is, especially considering the fact that user data could be lost in the process. Perhaps this is only being done to users who would be getting their phones wiped anyway during the repair process (a common occurrence).

On that note, there’s still no word on when Froyo for the Epic will actually get released. I guess the wait continues…
