    Lots of empty parking lots around my work today... Wait or do it yourself
    Already did long ago.

    The only reason people are waiting is to see if Sprint's telling the truth or if it's coming today at all.

    It's probably been a very small ota so far, starts small gets big, then finishes small

    So...here's a thing.

    Not sure if that would work as it looks like those are just the leaked files from a few days ago.

    HOWEVER. I got a PRL update from Sprint without even doing anything yesterday. So...there's that.

    Anyone want to try this and see how it works?

    (Note: Don't do this if you're not cool with possibly breaking something if this place is incorrect)

    Well, I'm downloading it. Not sure I'm brave enough to try it - never heard of that site before. I might unzip it and peek around.

    Also wanted to note twice in the past couple weeks I seem to have gotten PRL updates overnight w/o doing anything - I distinctly remember one of them woke me up (the screen turned on).

    *shrugs*

    EDIT: I think this is the leak, not the OTA - exact same md5 hash.

    I didn't try it - like I said, not brave enough. Though after looking around, I believe it's the same file that was the leak - the md5 sums are the same. So I doubt if you could actually do the rename-and-boot-into-bootloader trick with this.

    As far as I'm aware nobody has yet received the OTA update. So anything else that is floating around is still the leaked "official" version from a few days back.

    According to JBQ, looks like we may not see the factory images for the Nexus S 4G until maybe next week as he's too busy to put them up currently.

    So, we'll just have to wait until the OTA itself comes then or next week for the factory images.

    Could come today, depending on how busy he is.

    The factory image still requires a wipe, right?

    wouldn't the factory images wipe the phone?

    The only way to get around not having a wiped device is two ways.

    1. Receive the OTA update the way it was meant to be
    2. Take the update.zip file which is essentially the OTA and flash/install it using the stock recovery.

    If I'm not mistaken, they shouldn't. That would be the "update.zip" method.

    Looks like I'm mistaken, nevermind then. :P

    As for the OTA:

    Sprint Community: **System OTA Update Thread** Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwhich Nexus S 4G

    According to Sprint reps on their forum, the OTA isn't widespread yet as it'll take some time to reach their system from corporate. Apparently the OTA IS out there, but as I said, not everyone's going to freak out and say something because not everyone is tech-savvy as those on these forums and XDA. :P

    My guess is anyone who has it now doesn't really know that the update has been wanted for so long and updated without much fanfare. Remember, this phone's been given out as free for a while now so that means a lot of non-tech savvy people can get it easy.

    Anyone try to see if the Spirit store will update it for them? I would, but I'm on a road trip.

    You about hit that one the head...

    Anyone sees a legitament link to the OTA package feel free to PM it to me and I'll open up the official thread with it...

    Remember, its going to be an update package from Gingerbread v2.3.7 to ICS 4.0.4.

    Anything else is a fake or doctored.

    Some ppl are saying they got the OTA yesterday but these are non techy ppl that don't know how to get the OTA URL... I am at least asking them what's the baseband version.

    Only thing you can do is wait or try going to Settings/About Phone and check for updates...

    The check for updates rarely does anything, it will notify you first normally before you get the chance to check for updates.

    So I'm probably like everyone else on this forum. Every chance I get, I go to my settings menu and check for System Updates. I IMMEDIATELY get a notification that my system is up to date. It happens so quickly, that it leads me to think that the phone is not actually "checking in" with Sprint to see if there are any updates. Am I right that the phone will keep doing that until Sprint sends it some message that an update is available?

    That's correct. You won't see an update on that screen until it actually reaches you.

    Also, further confirmation that the OTA went out yesterday:

    Looks like OTA might be a bit bit different build from the leak. User who received official OTA reports base band of D720SPRKH1.

    Sprint Community: 4/5 - Nexus S Software Update - IMM76D (Android 4.0 - Ice Cream Sandwich)

    The leak base band was D720SPRLC1, perhaps the RLC1 stands for Release Candidate 1?

    Either way... getting close.
