Update has NOT been released!
The latest from the Moto corporate forum regarding the update:
In spite of the announcement by ATT, that the update has been released, Motorola has NOT released the update, yet. And there is no word from Moto as to when it will be released. There have been a series of posts from the designated forum "Experts".
Here is one of them, from eagle328, quoted in its entirety:
"New software update: 4.1.75 and 4.1.83
No update has been released yet. The forum manager Mark will announce when an update is released. Please listen to the community for information of its release. I do not know when it will happen, but I hope soon."
In other posts by the designated forum "Experts", there have been suggestions that the release which others have made available, elsewhere, may not, in fact, be the final release.
So, everyone should stop wasting their time checking for the OTA release, because there is no such thing, as yet. ATT can say what it wants, but until Motorola actually releases the final update package, it's all speculation.Change is good!

not sure about swype, it's version 188.8.131.5240 if that matters.
I'm using smartkeyboard pro, so I don't have elaborate experience with swype, unfortunately.
In terms of apps, honestly I didn't check every app yet. The stock music player still sounds the same to me too.

This is merely wild speculation on my part, but we'll soon see how accurate it is (or isn't):
The 1.83 update was all ready to go out, but then blabbermouth beta testers crowing online that the GingerBreak exploit works just fine on 1.83 caused Moto and/or ATT to pull it at the last minute in order to buy time to thwart the exploit. The proof will be if 1.83 (or whatever), once it is finally released, suddenly proves to be immune to GingerBreak.
Taking bets here....

I did read on other forums after I got my update, that some people tried the updater software and it came back with no updates. So it's few and far between.
I'll be sure to keep a lookout on the "official" release, to see what version numbers will be present, or differences.
