    I'd be a little sceptical about what a Sprint Chat specialist knows. In the past I've had ones that are really on top of things and know of what they speak and others that couldn't even determine my upgrade eligibility. Sadly those who know of what they speak are few and far between.

    As for the update, it has been reported in some other threads that the source code has been posted which is generally a positive. The only thing that drives me nuts is if it is released today there is no way for me to force my phone to download it.

    Dont they have a window of 7/12-7/20? The pessimist in me thinks that it probably wont get here until 11:59pm 7/19. The optimist in me thinks that it is in on its way out right now!

    I hate being bipolar. It's awesome.

    Are you using the stock keyboard? If not, your keyboard app may need to be manually updated.

    That is quite strange. Lets hope they push out a second update to fix the problems in the coming weeks. And I wonder if you get the same response if you are using a different keyboard such as swift key?

    Ahh not too far from me. I'll be checking mine frequently. How did the update arrive? Kies? Notification? Or did you just go to settings, about phone, update android?

    Out of curiosity, should I remove all Go Launcher themes, settings, etc,. before updating? I think that may cause a conflict with the visual upgrade but I have no idea. Thoughts?

    I was having Swype issues in the leaked builds too. I can't remember exactly but I think i fixed it by clearing the data and cache for swype in the applications menu. This will probably delete your word library so you may want to back that up.

    UPDATE: Direct link to download the OTA (thanks to devinrovell @ XDA): http://android.clients.google.com/pa...29_to_FF18.zip

    (note, this won't work if have a custom ROM, or if you modified any of the stock apps e.g. if you removed bloatware its not gonna work)

    Steps to Manually Install OTA:
    Rename the file to “update.zip” (without the quotes - make sure it isn't update.zip.zip)

    Move the file to the root of your internal storage SDCARD on the ET4G
    (Per results from others, the stock recovery will only look at the root of a sdcard for the update.zip. If you don't have a SDCard I guess you're out of luck until the OTA hits your phone from sprint.)

    Disconnect USB Cable

    Shutdown your ET4G

    Boot your phone into Recovery Mode
    (Push and hold the the Volume Up + Power until recovery screen displays.)

    Use Volume Down button to hightlight “apply update.zip”
    Select with "home" button


    Note: Instructions below this point are now depricated - use the download link provided at the top
    If you get the OTA prompt to download - please follow these steps to help out your fellow ET4G'ers:

    Steps to Find OTA Link:
    Download CatLog from the play store (free). Link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...catlog+android

    When the OTA update is prompted you can look in the log cat results and find the direct Google download link URL. May take a bit of digging through the logcat but its not hard to find. Once you get the URL share it with others here. This way anyone who wants the official OTA can pull it down rather than wait potentially several days for it.

    It will probably start with http://android.clients.google.com/pa...t_samsung_d710... to give you an idea of what to look for.

    Rocket, I wanted to add like 240,689,340,968 likes to that message. I was hoping there would be some sort of a workaround to apply the update. Hopefulyl someone helps us out. I'm sick of my phone lying to me. Do NOT tell me my that "Your system is currently up to date." I KNOW that is not true :-)

    Anywho, hopefully someone is able to help out with that and/or some other set of things I can do to force it to update.
