Just checked at 11 PM on the 12th, software found and took around 10 mins to complete the whole process. Reboot took awhile though. Major new changes are that the buttons FINALLY stay lit for the duration of the screen , and best of all, the GPS does work, provided its standalone. I'm getting accurate locks up to 6m w/o wifi on within 30 secs or so. GPS settings still need tweaking, i suggest you turn off google locations and the vzw location services as well.

I did a manual check about 2am, and it was finally there. Only took a few mins to download. After reboot a screen pops up that tells you its unpacking files.
Itll blank out again after that then itll reboot again on its own. Mine was stuck on the bootup screen for about 3-4 mins with the verizon logo staring at me the whole time like it was stuck. Long enough to make me nervous. Eventually it booted up and all is good!.
I did a quick check with google maps to check the gps out. It used to say I was half a mile away from my house for about 5 mins then get a little closer within a house or two. This time it showed me with 10 feet of where I really was within a matter of seconds. So initial thought, gps is fixed but need to play with it more.

Oh no...Here we go again. I returned my first Fascinate due to the IP_PREVIOUS_UPDATE_FAILED error. I was never able to update it to DI01, and it was exchanged with the understanding there was a batch of Fascinates that were unable to update. When I got my current phone, DI01 installed flawlessly. I am now rooted, but have all bloatware re-enabled, and guess what? IP_PREVIOUS_UPDATE_FAILED has reared it's ugly head again, and I'm back where I was with my first phone pre-DI01.
