    *sigh* That erases everything on the phone no? I guess I need to backup. I'll do it over the weekend.

    Yea it deletes the data partition. I was wondering if OTA people would have these kinds of problems. I've seen a lot of this crap with the HoB over the months. Seems it doesn't matter how you do the update. No wonder vzw and moto wanted to delay this thing.

    Alright, that's why my update's been failing!

    Yes indeed. The way I deal with it is by having people use the HoB. If you don't want to use it to install the update, that's fine, but, the 905 FXZ KEEP DATA option will clean up that stuff so that you can install it. Or you can just say screw it and use the HoB to do the 246 INSTALL option in which case you don't need to do anything but follow the directions.

    just pulled it around 3 pm, took about 45 min to download on 3g. i was running a completely stock bionic, and never signed up for any soaks, so i'm def a happy camper that i got it today. i just checked every couple of hours for system update, and then out of the blue it got it. i couldn't stop smiling for the whole 45 min lol, now im home from work so i can play with it and figure out my "new" phone.
    Bionic + extended battery = whoop a$$

    I'm envious! My phone is still boring, slow GB.

    What I find condescending is the message I get when I check for an update:

    Your device is up to date!

    No update is necessary at this time.


    My message to Verizon is: I respectfully disagree. My device is NOT up to date. And it IS necessary that I get the available update!

    Here is my update timeline, unrooted on .905. Not on soak test, BTW.

    10:49 Did a "Check for updates" and saw .246 available and started download
    11:49 Download finished (4G) and verified update
    11:53 Started install
    12:14 Install finished
    12:20 Started optimizing apps, calendars, etc.
    12:28 Finished optimizing
    12:30 Lock screen appeared
    12:45 Notice of successful install

    The battery level went from 95% to about 70%, but it looks like I'm at 1200 mhz.

    I didn't get data or phone service for about 30 minutes and the favorites widget doesn't seem to load. We'll have to see if my phone numbers are still there.

    UPDATE: It looks like the phone numbers are there. I recommend turning the phone off and on a few times to let the program "settle in."

    So much for "checking for the update won't do anything."

    I joined this discussion really late..
    running unrooted, stock, and didnt register with motorola's site until i saw it posted in this thread yesterday.. so of course I wasnt part of the soak test group..

    so they are pushing the update to users other than the ones in the soak test??
    damn you.. now Im going to spend all weekend hitting 'system updates'
