    I remember reading that your phone has to basically be stock to get OTA updates. So that's not true?

    Its true to a point ex. rooting, safe strap, freezing bloatware, mobile hotspot hack, webtop hack and minor system adjustments will allow a successful install but theme changing, boot animation alteration, uninstalling bloatware or any major change in the system will cause an install error

    So has anyone noticed if this update helps in any way?

    I cant really tell because I did the droid4 utility overclock to 1300 at the same time I did the update, which made it just the slightest bit snappier. How can I undo the overclock hack?

    Thanks for that.

    The thing is, in the picture on Droid Life, it has the new installation as: 6.13.219.XT894. All the links I've seen are for 6.13.215.XT894. And I have that installed already. I got the phone on Tuesday of this week. Could I have received a phone with the new update or is 6.13.219.XT894 the new update?

    They name the files after what version it was coming from, so the update file name will be .215 since it's coming from .215 but after installation you will see your version is now .219.

    No stupidity, it's just a way of naming files that is unconventional unless you know how they do things.
