    Looking at all the posts, success has been iffy at best. And problems seems to show up a couple of days later. Based on this, and the number of updates AND methods of installation, I'd wait until I see the "I JUST GOT THE OTA UPDATE :icon_ banana:" threads to see if they were able to capture that update and post it here. More likely I'll wait until I get the update OTA myself. I can wait; I'm not having the data drop like others do and I'm using Camera Zoom FX.

    And, as promised, here' my update... :)

    This patch definitely took care of the constant 4G data-drop. I haven't had to turn on WiFi once since I updated, nor have I had to do the Airplane Mode work-around. The camera definitely feels faster, but it's still not quite as fast as I'd like it... But that's really not a big deal -- it was the data-drop that was driving me absolutely bonkers. I rely on this thing to tell me when work has sent me an e-mail, and with it's data-connection being as spotty as it was, that was really driving me nuts.

    And to whomever said there would be an OTA update in a week? Didn't they just say, on Nov. 1, that it would be 30 to 60 days? Have they changed that? Either way, this update was so easy to do, that I'm glad I did it, and I would *not* recommend waiting for the OTA update, unless you're absolutely sure it's just gonna be a week or so...

    Later all. Happy DROID'ing. :)

    What has changed is they are lining up soak testers. In the past, when they do that you are only a couple of days away from the soak testers getting it, and then it is only a couple of days after that when it is rolled to the rest of the world. The soak testers will get the final release and Moto will only stop the release if there are major problems with that release. So to answer your question, no nothing officially has changed. It is just an estimate based upon past history. No one really knows for sure except Moto and VZ.

    My experience with the leaked version is the same as yours, it rocks and I am very happy. I did it several weeks ago.

    [h=1]Error (401)[/h]It seems this link has expired or become inactive! FAQ or forums for help. Or maybe you should try heading home.

    Anyone with a new link?

    Leaked 5.7.893 Full update (.886 --> .893) - Android Forums

    If you are still stock you want the first section, "For stock users on 5.5.886 with no partition modifications...." If you want root, you do step one then step two. If you don't want root or already have you can just start with step two. Don't let the name of the file for the update confuse you...the files are named for the version you are upgrading FROM, not to.
