    Will it just pop up as a notification? Will it just start downloading? How does Google's OTA work?

    I still think at least the nexus should have the update checker on anroid.com. Also, still doing OTA for people who don't mind waiting; or, wouldn't think to.

    I've said it before. Android is about choices. So why am I stuck with OTA, lol.

    I wonder what I'll get first. The market or the update. Hmm.
    Well the choice comes in when the first AC user who gets it grabs the update.zip file and posts it. If that takes more than a day or two I would be very surprised. Then it's just about manually updating your phone which is easy.

    Just a guess here, I would imagine 3 weeks gets shorter if there aren't problems. Everyone builds buffers into their estimates when it comes to technology

    And you can grab the vending.apk now and install the new market. That's been around for weeks.

    Whats the process of doing the manual update.zip? Is it similar to installing the root package steps?

    Recovery Mode etc? A webOS user here, so this will be the first update

    It doesn't really matter if it takes 3 weeks to reach the rest of the world. As soon as a Dev gets ahold the image it will be on XDA 1 hour later. Deodexed a Rooted for our pleasure.

    Put update.zip on SD card, reboot into recovery, apply update from zip file. Simple as that.

    If I knew how to do a nandroid I would, at work right now, I got a automatic notification to update. On a side note, I never got a 4g signal at my desk at work, it doesn't work well now since I'm inside a building but at least the phone can grab a 4g signal, so they may have fixed it. Can't wait to go home and try speedtest next to my router. I was having major problems getting a consistent speed over Wifi. My Itouch right next to it was getting double speeds.

    I second that. On a random note does the forum look messed up to anyone or is it just me...

    I am about to return my phone to best buy because of the ghost back button press issue that is crippling my phone. Since they said that was somewhat related to 3G data being on, I wonder if this update fixes that. I have tried turning off 3G and it still had the glitch..so guess I'll try for handset number two today.
