    Original thread on XDA... so far determined to be real, what's new/changed is unknown so far but it is assumed to be bug fixes from OTA release.

    Original thread has the Update.Zip attached for those wishing to dig into it further.

    my hunch is that it is a hoax because the various screen shots are conflicting.

    If you read the whole thread XDA, it would explain why there are conflicting numbers in the screen shots... this was captured in the cache on a custom/rooted ROM and copied off the phone by a senior member and respected developer on XDA, most developers who have looked at it over there seem to think it's legit, but of course, only time will tell. I did wait a few hours until several of the well-known developers on XDA gave it a look over and the general consensus was it was real before I pulled the trigger and posted it on a few forums.

    The screen shot before the update says it will install 3.14.605.12 and this is our official ics. So this does not sound like it is anything new, otherwise HTC/verizon would increase the version number.

    Then the picture after the update is installed shows the version is 3.14.605.1 which makes no sense. Version numbers can not go backwards for stock phones. Thus I believe it is someone playing a joke.

    Where do you see that? I see the version after the update as being 4.03.605.1

    But like I said, time will tell, it is too early to know for sure... We need to wait a day or two and see what happens before passing judgment.

    That's just as bad, version number still going backward.

    When my Tab got 3.1 TW a bug fix update came before the first one was finished pushing, literally less than a week. Samsung halted TW for a few weeks while finishing the follow up to those of us that got it and to combine the bug fixes into the update for those that didn't get it. Same thing happened with 3.2.
    I write that to say with Android fragment and hanging users out in the wind at the mercy of Verizon and HTC nothing will surprise me.

    I just read through the xda thread, it's explained in there why there's different version numbers. There was so much bickering that I forger the reasoning.

    LOL... I hear yea!

    The OP made it clear in a later post... he was on a custom ROM and got the OTA update, but didn't apply it, just got the notification, screen shot it, let it download, then pulled it out of the cache and rejected the update. It is more and more appearing to be official, there is new Radios, Recovery, Hboot, and Firmware, and jumps in all revision numbers.

    Still not showing up on either of my phones though... time for bed, will check back in the morning and see what's happened.

    It's official, signed by HTC... Major software version changes because this is the long awaited "Global" update, giving access to all the radios easily, the rest is still unknown so far.

    ok, I see the first number in the version number us 4, so the version number did increase. was my mistake.

    I am stock ics, rooted, with nova launcher.
    I just need to put back the stock .12 recovery to be able to take this update.

    I need to read more about it.

    I have downloaded it from one of the Android Police links, and renamed the file to have 4.03.605.1_Update in the file name.
    This is not an RUU, apparently it must be applied onto a stock ICS 3.14.605.12 system.
    Android Police says to rename the update file as PH98IMG.zip, but the XDA thread says to rename it Update.zip

    I am not going to personally install it right now, as I have other pressing things to do.

    I have made a torrent, for those who prefer to use uTorrent.

    http://db.tt/kkRswsNr

    Remember, to check the MD5 checksum against that listed by Android Police:
    2c8cb4aca3b48a02c356a116d01403ec

    P.S. Need to enable encryption in uTorrent, as I use Forced encryption option.

    That version number is kind of troubling. The last SW version was 3.14.605.12 now this one is 4.03.605.1? Oh well one more update to track. If anyone gets this running. Let's hear if the radios are any better...or any feedback really.

    I installed it using the instructions on the XDA forum page 22

    The following is my post from XDA on page 26:

    Well, I followed your instructions.
    I skipped steps 1 and 2 because I was stock official ICS, rooted, with s-off.
    After step 7, I had to go through the menu and select the actual Update.zip file
    It did take a while, and did reboot into recovery a few times.
    It never did boot into hboot, it booted up normally.
    It did not wipe - which is good.
    Looking at the settings, about, software, more. I am on the new version number and the radio is on the new version number mentioned in earlier posts.
    However, you stated I should boot into hboot, So I booted into hboot, which then took booted me into recovery, which then booted me into hboot, and I volumed-up to install the ph98img.zip which was the firmware zip file from the update.
    I rebooted into the phone again.
    Removed the update.zip and ph98img.zip files

    I strongly suspect that I did not need to extract the firmware.zip and rename it ph98img.zip and flash it separately. However, I don't think it hurt anything doing the additional step.

    Thanks for your help.

    P.S. I did lose root, but it wasn't hard to boot up Amon Ra Recovery and flash the latest SuperSu zip file to get root back.

    Oh, it seems this update wiped the internal sdcard, but left the external sd card untouched.

    I just checked and no update yet. I'm still stock OTA, not rooted (still reading before I screw up) I assume I can update without rooting?

    you need :
    o Locked (or if s-off it doesn't matter)
    o stock .12 from ota or Android Police
    o stock .12 recovery
    o Rooted doesn't matter. You will lose root during the update.

    Should eventually get this update over the air, or you can download it from Android Police.

    it will wipe your internal sd.

    So I got to step 6 of the above directions, looked away from the phone to see what step 7 was. The phone vibrated and is now on the screen with the green down arrow and 2 in a circle around it. Says "Updating Software from Verizon Wireless" with a green progress bar. Hope I did it right.

    That went through rebooted to HBOOT, pressed vol. up twice. It checked everything. Rebooted. Pressed. Vol. up to install. Upadated everything. Pressed power to reboot.

    Took a little while on the white HTC screen, now says "Andoid is upgrading..." "Optimizing application [some number] of 77." I think I did it right.

    Just checked and everything is right. Woo-Hoo! Not that I'll ever use global, I was hoping it may have fixed some of the bugs I was having, but no :(

    Also of note, I didn't pull the battery. My case is hard to get off, so I just turned off fast boot and that worked.
