    Got ICS this morning at 1:30 am in Waukegan, Il. 25 minutes to download and install. No problems at all.

    I had the same issue. I ended up doing a factory reset. It eventually worked, but it seemed like forever for it to actually show a notification and download.

    Stupid question : what do y'all mean by factory reset? Will I lose any apps or data?

    Eta: nevermind, I figured it out.

    Got the update in southern NH this morning after I woke up (checked it 12 seconds before download was going to start). Update took a long while (20 minutes?) and then another 5-10 before any connectivity happened and another 45-60 before LTE lit up. But now the thing is blazing fast. Games and apps that could lag when pressing buttons now respond instantly. After some initial concern, now a happy camper! Had to turn off auto wifi to keep the wifi prompt from showing up for every app I open if I want to leave it off in an area where wifi networks exist. Will be looking for a way to turn it on automatically at home if possible but not at work.

    So I pulled the update last night (twice) and it failed about 20 seconds into the installation with the "!" in the triangle...I've defrosted everything and updated all of the apps, including the VZ ones. I am rooted; do I need to unroot? Or should I do a factory reset?

    Suggestions or help would be great!

    Was able to pull it manually around 11pm last night. Took about 20 minutes to download/verify and all that. Then about another 10-15 to install. I love it so far makes my bionic feel like a shiny new toy!

    Aren't you glad we finally got LTE down here? It's been pretty awesome.

    Yeah, something's up.

    My download has been stuck on 96% for a couple hours now. I'm going to bed. Maybe it will fix itself by morning.
    Woke up this morning and the update had downloaded.

    Installed and all seems to be fine. NICE!

    My phone is stuck on the "driod" opening screen. I'm updating the software from the previous official release.
    Any suggestions?

    I know, but just for those who might have thought it did.

    Same issue here, rooted but on the upgrade path, downloaded in fits and starts then failed with the exclamation point. Ran through this drill three or four times, factory reset, and now it downloads fine, but still having the issue of failing about a third of the bar in, rebooting, saying the install failed, and a redownload.

    Called VZW, and they let me know they'd just received a mass email about it in their tech support department, that they know it's an issue, and people are working to resolve it. The lady said to try back again later on this evening, so hopefully it'll work!

    Battery life is actually worse than with GB.. I used to get about 3-4 hrs of screen time.

    I ended up using House of Bionic to apply the update. After some trouble shooting on my end (read: I'm dumb and impatient) I got it to work 100%. I highly recommend getting the .246 update this way. It's essentially fool proof if you read the instructions.

    Download the latest file for Bionic from above website, and you can flash it via Rsd lite.

    For battery life I forced my phone back to 3G. No need for 4g really... so much more battery life!

    Yes, certainly the easiest. Not trying to make light of the plight of others, but so glad HOB was available beforehand. I've not had one single problem.
