Verizon deliberately pushes the update out to a certain # of phones per day. Easier on them and easier for them to fix things on the fly if something goes awry on their end.
If they pushed the OTA out simultaneously to everybody and there was a previously undetected issue with the build that bricked everyone's phones, they'd be screwed. This gives them the ability to monitor results as they push.
Also, while I'm not an expert, I think that from a bandwidth point of view that would have to be taxing for them.

Some say that his dormant chips were left that way for YOUR SAFETY... Others say that once "turned on," he can not be turned off... All we know is... He's called The Stig.

More importantly he's a ninja...so there's that.
That aside, the above schedule: employees first then 10K, 100K, 200K, 200K, etc. makes absolute perfect sense and is exactly how I would go about it.Rooted & ROM'd 32GB White Mist Verizon Galaxy S4

There have been some rumors flying about that the Froyo update has some bugs and has been causing issues on those phones that got them, possibly causing a pull back of the OTA by Verizon. At this point, they appear to be rumors. Has anyone else 'in the know' heard about this from over the weekend?

I am sure we will see more getting it today, although it might not be until this evening.

But, if I understand correctly....
Verizon is sending a rep out to each one of us individually to install the 2.2 upgrade...

Verizon loves taking forever. Remember, we only need one person to link the update.zip URL and all of us hardcore fans are in business. The Froyo business, that is

Also does any one know if you wipe your phone (settings > Privacy > Factory data reset) will it go back to 2.1? Or does Android 2.2 actually flash the bios so to speak? Similar to updating the bios on your mother board.Feel free to private message me at any time! I enjoy getting private messages.
