    Yeah I say that heh. What stands out to me though is the (MR4), which I believe means "Minor Revision 4". It's hard to know what revision version of the FH13 build leaked out recently, but it's possible that it was an older build and not what is going to be pushed out via an OTA update.

    Still no mention of Bluetooth media audio reboots though, which I personally experienced on all of the ICS builds and have seen a few reports from other owners experiencing the same thing as well. I believe it's a rare compatibility issue though that may only happen with certain Bluetooth audio devices.

    Any battery life improvements will be welcome I'm sure, but there are still other lingering issues.

    What I would like to know is, what is it that they are "fixing" for the battery issues? We just ordered 2 more GSII and got them a couple of days ago. They are both stock loaded with 4.0.4 FF18, and EVERYTHING is the exact same as my GSII w/ rooted FF18. Both new phones have been on for 18 hours now with over 60% remaining.

    I just cant imagine what they might be "bugfixing" on these phones........

    I loaded FF18 on my friend's SGSII and he hasn't complained of issues, but I have used my SGSII with FF18 for 2 hours heavily and the battery dies. It all depends on what you're running and how much you use it.

    Yeah I get what you are saying. My rooted gsII gets the same battery life as the 2 new ones. It just seems that it would be app or hardware related, moreso than os related I think.

    On a side note, I installed FH13, and got bad results. Go figure.

    Funny, I finally got Sprint to replace my hardware today because of my issues. As the in-store tech was typing up the replacement order, all of the replacement units went out of stock, so I have to wait a couple days for my new one. Maybe they pulled them for software updating?

    OK ..I have a dumb question. I downloaded the disaster of a update, but didn't on my wifes phone. So she receives the update notification all the time on her phone. My question is will I have to down load the bad update on her phone in order to receive the new one?
    Thanks

    No, it should download FH13 and skip FF18.

    I got my replacement phone today and it was a refurbished one. Odd thing is it was loaded with ICS FH18. So far the phone is working okay. I'm going to give it a few days to see how things go. I had battery issues and freezing up of the phone. Sprint store told me I could bring the phone back to downgrade back to GB.

    Now hearing of another official upgrade to FH13 is on it's way scares the crap out of me! I'm gonna wait a while when that happens.

    I can't link to it because the site is (mistakenly) blocked at work...
    ...but go to sxtp-forum.com/forum.php, find Epic 4G Touch Android Development and look for rwilco's FH13 thread. Post 1 has one clicks for FH13 unrooted, Post 3 has my links for rooted. Easy peasy and no having to wait for OTA.

    You will but it will take time - FF18 rollout was planned originally over 2 weeks.
    If you don't want to wait though see my earlier post.

    That's not necessarily the official OTA FH13 though. For starters, the boot screens vary from the OTA FH13 and the Leaked FH13.

    If you want the OTA, I'd just wait for it to be sent to your phone, or go through Kies (even though it takes FOREVER, for me anyway).

    Plus, the Leaked FH13 gave alot of people, including myself, shutdown issues when in Deep Sleep.

    Just my guess, there are differences between the two.

    How do you "go through Kies"? I don't see any update options.

    When you connect your phone to your PC and start Kies, there is an upgrade firmware option (if there is one available, and FH13 is available).
