when you get the OTA update you get it in the form of an update.zip file but its automatically executed and removed so you never see it . Adrynalyne or someone either was given the update.zip or he pulls it before its executed.

[NOTE]Now if you are completely stock EA28 there is an update.zip to take you to ED01
So to go from EA28 you use this update.zip file:
[WARN]Be sure to be careful and remember which update.zip is what since they are named the same it is easy to mix them up, i suggest putting them in their own folders on your computer so you do not mix them up trying to go from DL09 to ED01 will just cause failures[/WARN]
How to flash an update.zip file:
- the update.zip file must be placed on your sd card not in any folders
- Shut your phone down
- Press and hold Volume up + down +powerbutton, you will see Samsung flash twice on the second flash let go of the buttons
- This will lead you into stock recovery, use the volume button to highlight apply sdcard:update.zip
- Then hit the home button , the system will now flash and update your device, it will reboot once its done you are now updated
Some people ask why they need clockwork recovery, why cant i just name the rom update.zip and use the method outlined above?
Because Stock recovery will only flash .zip files that are officially signed by Samsung/Verizon. If it does not see the digital signature it will just fail during flash. This is why custom recovery systems are needed.[/INFO]
If you are completely stock and either on DL09 or EA28 builds you can download the respective update.zip and place it on your sd card , since you are not using the computer it flash it does not matter.
