    Got a new thunderbolt my 4th one. Checked the software and an update is showing. Is this the old one that messed up everybody's phone or the newest one?

    I thought they yanked the old one and you could no longer download it?

    Does it give a name for the update or any other identifying information?

    I, too, would be suspicious that it's the old "bad" update.

    Says new update from Verizon ....gives a 3 min countdown.

    Size is 35.649 mb. Gives an option to ok it,defer it, or reject it.

    Since the MR2 isn't supposed to go OTA until tomorrow, I would be concerned.

    Oh, I got a new TB from insurance and mine has the same software as yours. Not sure which one it is, but it has randomly rebooted twice now. Only had it two days...

    That's what I've heard - and to be clear, it should start rolling out tomorrow, when any particular user actually gets it is unknown.

    IDK man, a server leftover? Mine came with it. Broke my old one in half, and it had it too. The random reboots will knock out roughly 25% of your battery per occurence, so be prepared with charger in hand. Its nasty!

    Yes that is the one that was causing many reboots.

    I know my replacements all had it except this one from what I can tell.

    I think this one is brand new though. I never understood why rebooting the phone would eat up so much battery even while plugged in the percentage would drop by 15 to 20 percent!!!

    I don't want to beat this to death, but wanted to update. My tbolt was a week old and not rooted and very stock. I checked manually like others for an update and got the MR1 as a result on June 15. Later that day I started getting reboots after installing MR1 thinking it was a new update. Hadn't had any before. Decided to install leaked MR2 and have been ok since. Believe Verizon has MR1 out there as a manual download for whatever reason. Don't recommend!

    Verizon still pushing bad update

    Have bought 2 TBs in the last week. Bought wife one on 6-9-11, no OTA rec'd, no reboot issues. Daughter was also due for upgrade, loved Mom's TB, so she got one sunday (6-12). Within 1 hr of getting it home, she gets notice of OTA update. I figured it MUST be the new one, sinec Verizon surely wouldn't be still pushing an update that has caused so much trouble, right?

    WRONG. :icon_evil: Kids phone has rebooted 4-6 times a day ever since, while wife's phone: not once. Why in the hell would they still be pushing that out?

    No clue. It's bad enough they pushed something out that caused so much trouble; that they continue to do so adds insult to injury.

    Now that I recall, when I got my wife's bolt the Verizon guy told me "an update was available so I applied it". Had I only known then...

    I also got one for wife. Still stock and not updated and no rebooting. If anyone is rebooting, recommend the leak MR2. It fixed my rebooting issue.

    1.13.605.7 is on mine, and since I did the original OTA, I'd say that's what you have too.
