    I downloaded it and have been contemplating it, but I think i've come to the conclusion that i'm going to wait for the "official" ota.

    Agree, this is the test version of the update. It could be good, but then it could also introduce other problems or exacerbate existing ones. You almost certainly couldn't take your phone back to Verizon with this update on it.

    Same here. All ready to go, but wondering why it's not released yet. I'll probably wait.

    Sorry for the noob question but I can't seem to find this in a search. What is the key combination to boot into recovery of the D3? Thanks in advance!

    Hold x while powering on to boot into recovery. I applied the update last night and so far it seems to be much better on the battery. Dropped 20% in 12 hours overnight when usually it would be dead.

    My d3 is rooted, does this update block root?

    Also is there a way to backup my d3 100% as it is now and then try the update?

    You will lose root, but you can re-root afterwards. There is no way to backup at this time though.

    Ok so can anyone confirm that the root exploit will still work?

    the root still works. i was daring and did not even unroot before i applied the update. all went smooth, and re-root went easy as could be. i also *228 - 2'd today and updated that as well. phone is fully operation, and after making sure it was fully charged i did a reboot so that i can get a feel for battery life after all the changes.

    Another issue I didn't think to mention and confirmed over at Moto is that you are not likely to get the final update if you apply this one
