    1) Boot into recovery by holding VOLUME UP+HOME+POWER button all at the same time
    2) Scroll to Update with the volume up/down rocker
    3) Select with HOME key
    4) Sit back and let it do it's thing....takes 3-5 minutes to complete
    Is there another version of CWM for the Charge? The one I have, you can't go back in menus, nor do any of the hardkeys work aside from power (which functions as ok/enter). So I've always had to reboot by taking out the battery.

    I found a description of what all the ee4 update includes, moderately significant if you ask me.

    Thank you all very much!

    Also, update did not work. Update.zip worked great. After reading all of this, I actually put the full original filename, as well as a copy named update.zip in the root directory of the SD card, and it worked flawlessly. EE4, and Mobile HotSpot is now working again! Yay!

    Ok so I am new at most of this so my first question is will this help the issue with signal strength?
    If so how can I do the update manually? Can I use a MAC to do it? I do not have a PC.
    Thanks for helping the new guy....

    Restarted 4 times....toggled airplane mode 4 times, reflashed EE4 update, nothing changes...no 4g.

    Nope, no task killers at all.

    Try going to settings -> wireless and then toggle cdma (automatic). Give it a second to pick up a 3g signal then change it back to LTE automatic.

    Haha nice to know someone uses the same exact method as I do. Too bad the EE4 update does not really improve my 4G reception or anything though. I have a spot in my room that gets a solid 4G connection for a while until it mysteriously stops receiving data (though the 4G signal icon remains, sigh...), in which case I perform the same exact steps as you outlined to get things working again.

    The update has screwed up some of the android market apps on my phone. Some of my apps are now showing incapatibility with my charge. They worked fine before.

    So from reading the posts from those that have the update, it seems that nobody is saying it improves reception. Not good.

    I updated last night. So far no problems. They added another bar to make it five, seems to have better connection. I noticed the browser works much better. Some sites that would lock up and freeze now load quickly and smoothly. I think its been a very good update for the short amount of time ive had it.

    I would also like to know about usin the file for updating the radio files since this would be my main reason for doing the EE4 update.

    Have most people still not gotten the OTA update? It seems to be rolling out very slowly.

    No update here either. Maybe by Tuesday of next week a poll should be taken to see how many people have received the update.

    New to all of this but am interested in the update, as my phone isn't doing HotSpot I'm assuming I haven't had the update pushed to me. Do I have to be on a G4 network to use/install update and how do I utilize the zip file earlier posted to install the update?

    I know it is tempting to d/l the ZIP file posted earlier. But you might want to wait -- one never knows with these things; could be there's a bug in the update [being pushed out by VZ and potentially captured in the ZIP file] and that's why it is rolling out slowly (they're fixing it?), or could be the ZIP file isn't what it is cracked up to be [because VZ changes the update on the fly as needed]. No-one knows.

    To fix your HotSpot isn't that hard:
    1) d/l Elixir App: https://market.android.com/details?id=bt.android.elixir
    2) go to the menu screen (far left hard button), choose WIDGETS
    3) add a 1x1 bar widget (or whatever size you want) (do not close/save yet)
    4) click on a blank spot on the bar before you add it, include the "Wi-Fi- AP (Hotspot) switch"
    5) Save
    6) Now you can turn on/off the hotspot whenever you want

    That's pretty easy -- easier than downloading an unknown ZIP update...
    plus you might like Elixir.

    The only issue I had with it is that I needed to change my hotspot settings. (The settings screen won't even work anymore!) To do that, I just changed the date to 5/15, changed the settings, changed it back, all without leaving the settings menu, so didn't cause much disruption in the calendar/etc. area.

    You'll get the update eventually -- why rush it if this is your only issue?

    Hope that helps.

    I can say that is sage advice, but its also a bit of a slam on those who work hard to put out the fixes for the users who want to move forward and enhance their phones.

    I can tell from the devs we have working on the Charge that they know their stuff and that as they always state, they are not responsible for what you do to your own phone. So if you are uncomfortable then don't do it, but that also goes to everything else. Maybe you should root, use CWM, install a custom kernel. After all anything you do that changes the phone from factory stock voids your warranty and could brick it.

    That said caution is always best, if you don't know what you are doing, ASK, sure some forums are a bit more harsh than others but you can tell who will help answer noob questions and those that won't. I personally have sent PM's to several devs involved and received their help, but I also make notes on everything I do and have learned how to fix issues.

    That is my $.02.
