    As long as you didn't remove any stock apps or make any framework/kernel changes you will be fine. You will also lose root.

    I am guessing it's the same deal as with the last update, you can't check for it, it just arrives on your phone eventually, right?

    I checked for an update as soon as I saw this earlier and I'm not showing anything, so I would assume so.

    They are only doing the update in batches. Acording to the front page of AC it should hit all phones over the next 10 days.

    Does it mean you pulled the battery with the device on, or turned it off first?? I understand it may have nothing to do with update arriving at your headset, it arrives when it arrives, but I have read far too many people saying a pull got them the update upon turning the device on. So just want to know how are you doing it?

    I dunno, CIQ being gone is pretty big in my book. Privacy aside, it's one less process running in the background chewing up your battery.

    I just did the battery pull trick to see if I would get the update, not sure if it was a coincidence or not, but as soon as I turned my phone back on, it began updating. It might be worth a shot if you can't wait for the push. Good luck.

    Just remember this is only a 0.0.2 version increase most of the changes will not be noticeable.

    As JayWill posted earlier; the biggest change is the removal of CIQ. If you don't know what that is you should probably google it and educate yourself.

    Here is the change log from sprint:

    "Samsung Epic 4G Touch Software Update - EL29

    Enhancements/Fixes:
    - Security update
    - Dismissing multiple calendar alerts
    - Commercial Alert System (CMAS) activated

    Important Notes:
    - Software version is: S710.0.5S.EL29
    - Released in stages with 100% of devices having received the update within approximately 10 days
    - Refer to the Samsung Epic 4G Touch Software Updates for install instructions"

    those that have the update, would you be so kind to check under settings to see if the wifi keeps scanning even when it has a wifi connection. Also would be curious if the app drawer bug is still present.

    WIFI scans whenever the wifi settings menu is open. This is so you have the ability to manually connect to an alternate network. It is not a bug.

    My Evo 4g doesn't appear to do that, neither does my daughter's 5.0 wifi or my wife's nexus s 4g and if it is scanning it doesn't say it is.

    Yes it does. You would need to re-root via Odin and this method and choose the "Preserve User Data" file.

    Also, other than the biggest reason for this update (the removal of Carrier IQ) you will see that your Phone icon has changed a bit (has a little grid on it now) and the Incoming Call screen is different. It's also been reported that Bluetooth connectivity is a bit better, and your signal strength and wifi connectivity may improve (or get worse lol).

    Has anyone noticed that when receiving a call the answering screen sliders are different after the update. Mine are phone icons inside circles now.
