Disregard my previous questions. I found the answers here:
I just got in touch with Moto live chat staff.
They confirmed that this update is only for Droid Pro machines connected to VERIZON network
Means: If you are not using Verizon, say using AT&T/TMo or outside the States,
This update will not show up, and report as Phone up to date.
Hope there is any bro around on Verizon, and would be willling to extract the update.zip for us.
Beware, No rooting is available yet.
Old rooting will not work
And rooted machines would also be locked again.
***Use "OTA RootKeeper" from market BEFORE updating your phone. <- This works
Its running smoother, quicker response.
Cannot comment on freezing/reboot since never faced even on 4.6.8.
Will revert for using one more day, see hows the battery.
but since 4.7.3 base on AND2.3.4,
and 4.6.8 base on 2.3.3 while 2.3.3 is so notorious with the battery drainage bug, i suppose there will be a great improvement (at least on my Xperia Sk17 on similar update)
I got the update yesterday. I did sign up for the Moto soak test, so I assumed that's why I got it so soon.
I have the extended battery, and it used to last for 2 days, since the update yesterday morning, the battery has drained 3 times.....
Also, No Lock no longer works correctly, but everything else seems fine. No real differences in functionality
If the battery problem persists, I will dump the phone.
Got it last night. Not sure what exact issues it was supposed to fix but the phone is smoother running and apps open slightly quicker and my task killer monitor is reporting around 60% memory used vs 80% before the update.
