    Default VZW update coming through now

    so the VZW update is coming through now, it downloaded but i deferred it, i want to know if its gonna be an issue at all that i'm rooted and have the lag fix and some of the original embedded .apk files changed to .apk.old so they don't show up.

    anyone able to clear that up for me before i allow it to go through?

    side note ... will this contain that promised GPS fix from Samsung ? I'm searching other threads for this info now but i figured i'd ask while i'm posting

    You should be able to update just fine, but it will break your root so you will have to reroot once the update is finished. But you shouldn't hit any problems (at least I didn't)

    This isn't the 2.2 update, correct? (I'm worried about losing ShootMe :|)

    This update will remove root but it is easy to re-root. Just search the forums, all the info is here.

    Not sure... but, this update did not remove "root" from my phone... the apps that rely on root access are still functioning just fine after the update...

    I confirmed too that my Firmware version shows to be : 2.1-update1

    so, it would appear that my update worked just fine without any need to re-root..

    Everyone's firmware version says 2.1-update1.

    Kernel version, Build version or Baseband version is what you need to check.

    Baseband version : S:i500.04 V.DI01
    Kernel version : 2.6.29
    Build Number : SCH-I500.DI01


    I believe the new update is DI01, correct? So, definitely appears that mine is updated.. and still able to do root-able things.. ...

    and, I never renamed the .old files.. left them as they were in /system/app.

    Menu key, Settings, scroll to About Phone, then system update... then "check new"..
    it'll take some time to think.. then you'll be prompted from that point forward for the phone to auto-apply the update.. all over the air.

    something went wrong with my update ... i'm in a force close loop now *sigh*

    i've tried the odin route once so far ... ends up back in a force close loop ... my guess is this has something to do with the damn lag fix but i cannot access the settings menu to get it back into debug to try and take out the lag fix and then redo everything

    am i screwed ? any suggestions?

    I find the update, but it failed to load. Trying again real fast, hopefully it takes this time around.

    Unfortunately I've been traveling all week and haven't been reading every thread that closely but from what I have read it seems like anyone that had the lag fix installed prior to the OTA update, had major issues afterwards.

    Is this the case Brandon and/or Dirrk?

    I'm wondering if it only affects the ones who installed the lag fix manually versus the app in the market... I used the lag fix via the app and haven't had any issues with the OTA update. I haven't tried to remove the lag fix yet though, because of everything I have read since the update

    yeah i called up VZW and got my phone swapped out today, pain in the *** but oh well, did the ota update in store so i wouldn't have any issues to deal with.

    i have to think twice about doing the lag fix again ... caint wait till we get a rom for this thing

    This is a thread for the initial update from back in Sept. Check your about phone section in settings. If it says firmware version 2.1 update 1 and has a DI01 in the next line you already have it. If not, then you might have a problem. The new update is DJ05 but, so far it is not out to the general public.

    Damn I got way too excited when this post got bumped back to the top and I'm sure I wont be the only one. I can't wait for DJ05.

    Samsung Fascinate gets minor tweaks in new Verizon update -- Engadget Mobile

    This page has the pdf that shows what it fixed. Wasn't much, DJ05 will be much nicer when we get it.
