I was checking every couple of hours for an OTA and was starting to feel like a crazy person. Haven't had it on for more then 10 minutes are already love the new look and feel. Tomorrow we will see if battery life is any better, which would just be awesome.

I just did this install and it worked perfectly ! WOW what a difference- ! Thank you so much for the download and perfect instructions. TO anyone else- be sure your phone has a solid charge and be patient while it loads the zip file- it took about 10 or so minutes- then re-booting about 3-5 more-
Cool ! Thank you again-

Been running GB for over 24 hrs now. Battery life has improved greatly. switching between apps/screen much fast and more fluid. Enjoy the new dock on the homescreen and the ability to create groups for apps. was not able to get corporate email before do to a certificate policy but with GB i am now able to. only complaint is that there is still an issue with connecting to wifi's with 802.1x encryption. have to use the wifi advanced configuration editor app to change setting to get a connection.

I am out of the country for the summer so I would not have gotten the OTA update - I followed the instructions and it worked just fine on my Droid Pro - Thanks
PS: For those of you out of the country like me - remember it WILL turn back on Data Roaming - be sure to go back and uncheck it or you might run up a huge data bill.
PPS: My solution for using both my Droid Pro and my Xoom for the summer out side of the country (Background: As of time of this posting Verizon is charging $100.00 for 70mb of data the second 70 mb is $350.00 and there after - I typically using about 3gigs a month so do the math - because I cant) the solution I found was to go to the local provider in this case a company call EMT and get a huawei e5 wifi cell router for about $110 and get a unlimited 6dn/2up package for $15.00

Day 1 there seem to be a huge increase in battery life. By the end of my normal work day the battery is down to 40%, yellow by the time I make it home. Today with the same use it was at 60%. I'll take it.
That and everything seems to be running way smoother.
I just bought the 1700 battery... maybe I'll be able to use my phone without it dieing at the end of my day, everyday (slight exaggeration).

A friend was looking at my wife's pro that got the OTA update, and now wants GB on hers as well. One thing she doesn't want to do is have to set the phone back with all of her apps and data information if she can avoid it. Wife got it OTA so she didn't have to set her account up again like she would had she installed a leaked build. Does manually updating the Pro with the stock recovery method wipe all of the data and cache, or can I manually apply the update.zip and send her on her way without having to activate her phone and re-download all of her apps?

When I did the update manually I was worried about that too. But everything came back. No problems what-so-ever. Of course all google cloud based contacts came back but all my screen layouts and DL apps and preferences were all kept intact.
On my old BB, it would have taken me hours to get everything back to where it was. Love the Droid!

I did this to the Wife's Pro a few days ago and everything went flawlessly. The one complaint she has though is that the battery life is pretty bad. She used to make it through a whole day, now its dead around 8PM. anyone else experiencing poor battery life?

Finally decided to do it manually. Left all my settings intact which is important since I'm not on a VZW network or in the US. The only thing I noticed was that the Motorola Clock widget wouldn't resize as before. Oh well, I'll just have to test the Market.

Does anyone know how to get into Recovery Mode after applying GB? I power-up holding down the Power, <R> and <M> key and I get the triangle with the exclamation mark but then pressing <@> does nothing. The only way out (IFAIK) is a battery pull.
At one point I thought I needed to re-apply the update and tried this with no luck. Did we lose Recovery Mode with GB or is it me ??

The upgrade worked. It did take quite a while for the first boot. The interface is is little different and it will take a little while to get used to. I did have to reload emails from the server and I think that is causing initial sluggish performance. I'll wait a bit before I make a final evaluation.
