    He somehow was able to apparently pull the updater script from samsung's website and uploaded it to a file sharing site. The link to that upload is now apparently dead. You would have had to manually update your phone yourself using that script. If everything we have been hearing is correct, we should all start getting the OTA Tuesday.

    Yeah, but the carrot is likely rotten and full of bugs! Have you been a part of updates like this with other phone models. It is a big risk being first unless you are comfortable flashing. I have seen other phones which got updated into glitches, force closes and even losing the ability to speak with the cell towers.
    I for one will jump on and grab the update just for test purposes. But I will likely flash back to a ROM of my choice with 24 hours of it.

    I have never had any problems with GPS on my Droid Charge.
    Me neither, except for the fact it takes it up to 10 minutes to lock. Hopefully the update will improve this.

    I am running EP4P debloated and it runs pretty much perfectly and I have really no desire to take the OTA. Why take the risk as you say for a buggy ota release.I bet more than a few folks are thinking the same thing.

    I am kinda interested in the new color scheme though.

    What are you basing that on? The leak? I think there will be differences between the leak and what Verizon releases.

    It's Over The Air (OTA), so you gotta wait til a notification pops up on your phone to download it. Or you can keep trying, Menu--Settings--About Phone--System Updates.
