    I'm reading a slew of comments about this OTA update inside other threads but it would be helpful if people just posted what their end result experience was here.. good and bad.

    For me, it went just fine. Whole process took 15 minutes. I have the 5 bar signal meter. It added a battery status and meter in the Power settings. I don't notice anything else is different off hand but I bet there are little things everywhere. I am sure hoping the Arizona time issue is fixed. I haven't placed any calls yet. My device did get warm during the update. I'll report back if I see any major battery issues.

    I am not rooted.

    Hope others are having good experiences.

    Everything went fine for me.

    Only noticeable difference, although I haven't used it a lot since the update, is the 5 bars.

    I'm unlocked and rooted. So you don't think the update would be worth the effort to re-root and setup again?

    My update went smoothly and quickly too... I noticed the 5 bars and it also popped up a box that said GO Launcher EX was no longer my default launcher with an option to switch it back.

    Being that my rezound is unlocked and rooted, can I update and keep root + unlock?

    Maybe I'm the wrong guy to respond but it seems like it's mainly offered cosmetic changes, more than any fixes. I suppose if you've got time to kill, and enjoy that sort of thing, go for it. Personally, it doesn't look like it's worth the trouble.

    Sorry, but no, if you did you'd be the belle of the ball, though.. You'd have to revert to stock, update and then revert back to root. Sit tight, if it's worth a hill of beans. I'm sure a dev will have something to offer you soon.

    the update downloaded correctly but nothing happened after that. I waited 30 minutes and then I rebooted the phone. nothing appears to have changed. I attempted to download the update again but it is showing no new updates available. does anyone have a solution for this problem?

    my phone is currently temporarily rooted.

    OTA won't install it if your rooted (temp or perm.). If you want it and can't wait for a dev. update you can flash to install. Revert everything back to stock, and then update. After that, it's groundhog day, you'll have to unlock and root all over again, though.

    When I updated I manually forced the phone to check for new software.

    Fixed the mobile data issue for me. I was only getting 1x at my house unless I put my phone on airplane mode and then turned it off.

    Went smoothly and I like the look of the 5 bars. I'm not certain yet, but I think the update also fixed my "static with headphones" issue. Anyone else? I'll update once I've had more time to test.

    UPDATE: Unfortunately, I was wrong. The static is back, or I was too tired to notice it yesterday.

    Phone won't stay connected to wifi now. Detects my home network then keeps disconnecting itself.

    I'm in same boat. I used CleanTOOL 2.1.1 and the OTA update downloaded 52Mb but doesn't seem to install. How do I revert everything back to stock? I thought the temp root could be disabled easily? There should be warning right up front for newbies!

    If I was in the same boat I'd just do a hard reset. Another option, is to the tool again, and swap everything that was disabled and revert them back to "enable". Either method and you should be back to stock upon completion.

    I haven't gotten the OTA yet, but I'm temp root. I posted on cleantool and get updates when others post there and this morning I saw an update that said once they installed the OTA they can't debloat now. The way they posted it sounds like the update blocks you from turning off the bloatware. ???

    I used the clean tool to debloat. before updating, i used clean tool to rebloat, and the update took just fine. just a note that you can't run the current clean tool after the update, somehow the current update breaks that temp root.

    Worked perfect for me! I even switched from my extended battery back to the regular one. So far so good! I know its to early to say that a battery fix was in the OTA but it is working out good for me!
