    Default Update 98.72.16.en.US OTA

    This morning I picked up an OTA update, 98.72.16.en.US. After it was done, I'm showing a System Version of 98.72.16.XT912.Verizon.en.US

    I've looked around to see what the update involved, but I haven't found any details. There have been a few references to it being the Christmas time leak. The update was about 38MB in size.

    Any pointers to the official description of the update?

    Many thanks

    So since I am already using jb 4.1.2 and my system version is at 98.72.8, I would notice no changes by taking this update? I applied the jb from my sd back in december. I have a friend who took the update this morning and lost root. Even though he was backed up with Voodoo's rootkeeper.

    With a phone still in warranty, I haven't rooted, so I can't say whether or not you'll lose that.
    Nothing specific from that list in the article has appeared, but I will say that the phone is much more responsive now. Prior to the upgrade, it would often take many seconds for the unlock screen to respond, and for the icons to appear on the pages. Now, it just works instantly. I suppose that a soft reset might have accomplished the same thing, but can't test that now.

    I noticed that when I went to add a new contact from a phone call in the in the dialer or recent tabs, that the phone # did not carry over into the contact that I just created... Is this a new problem with this android version? This is the first time I noticed that. Anyone else having similar issues?

    Install Google Keep--it has a widget, and is more useful than the old Sticky Notes because you can sync it with the cloud.

    The Clock AnD Timer Function No Longer Has A TimeR Which I Used Daily. And Swyping Is Worse Than Ever. Won't Put Spaces Between My WordsAnymore And As You Can See, Capitalizing All Words.

    Go to Settings/Language & input and tap the gear icon next to Swype. Make sure Auto-spacing is checked. Not sure why it's capitalizing all words.

    Will root to root allow the wifi/hotspot to work again? I was using Foxfi. It has been blocked by Verizon.
