Looks like the new update (NOT GINGERBREAD) is avaqilable. I had to type in the silly code *#*#2432546#*#*, the device checked in and then I could check for updates under the Settings. The file is 73.589 MB. I have 1x service. This could take all night.
I'll report back later on the results. I did a backup of the system and have the images for returning to stock if I have to. Hope to not use them. Hope it fixes the reboots.
