    That's cause they're doing simultaneous OTA/SOAK.

    Must be nice, I've been checking every hour, with no luck. I've had this phone since Sept 8, 2011. You'd think I'd be up near the top of the list, right?

    Ok, but at 9:10 you said it wasn't available for pulling yet, that must've changed.

    I've had it since Sept 12, so I'm close to that.

    I'll just say, I'm glad that in your expert opinion, you think there's still a possibility we will get official JB. That would go a LONG way towards healing the pains of Bionic ownership up until now. And go a long way towards making me feel good considering a Motorola again next time.

    Q: I've finished the upgrade and now it's scanning my media files. How long does THAT take??
    A: Ummm, how many you got? I can take anywhere from 30 seconds to 10+ hours. BEFORE doing the upgrade, if you have a lot of media, you may wish to move them temporarily til the upgrade is finished.
    10+ hours?! I am SO F'ed.

    I started my update first thing after waking up and wasn't awake fully, I'm useless until my caffeine. Right after I started the update I thought, "Woops, I should have pulled my 64GB SD card with 45+GB of music on it!". I recall this step or a similar one on previous updates on other phones. Well, it's been two+ hours, still "Upgrading Media Database".... So eager to get ICS on this phone and it looks like it's going to be updating all day.

    First bit of feedback for Motorola, this is beyond stupid. What could it possibly be doing to the Media Database that needs to take this long?! I recall a long wait previously, but nothing like 10+ hours. I think it took an hour or so with less than 16gb of music on a Galaxy S(Vibrant) going from 2.2 to 2.3 IIRC?

    Anyone powered off during this process? If I do that and pull the SD card will I get around this or will I hose something? I'd guess it would be fine, but would really hate to F this long awaited update up. Or I can just wait literally all day.

    Couldn't you just pull the SD card until you're done updating?

    I'm pretty sure you can. However any apps on the card may not be scanned and optimised as seems to happen during the update.

    No. You don't seem to understand the difference. You simply got lucky. They roll it out in batches. Every hour a new batch of phones gets the update authorized. When I say it's not available for pulling, I mean that if your phone isn't yet in the batches that have received the update, you can sit there all day and do check for update and it ain't going to happen. When it's available for pulling it means it's rolled out completely and is now general availability for all.
