    Has anyone tried getting the update pushed to their phone who wasn't part of the soak test?

    I'm currently running the .607 soak test update, so I would assume they're the same exactly file.

    It's good we finally have Gingerbread, either way. In my opinion, this is how the phone should have launched, as it's much less buggy, smoother, and generally better overall.

    Wait a few days. I tried pulling the update earlier right after I sbf'd, no die. The 4.5.607 leak is up anyways, so this doesn't really matter.

    awesome news. i know the leak was out but wanted to wait for the official. quick question: after sbf'ing will i have to do the update to .33(or whatever it was) first? or will it just do a massive update from stock to the .607 gingerbread? thanks for the help in advance!

    Yes as I posted a couple of times on the thread, it was only a night or two, and that it would be here today or at midnight...

    You should have it in system updates in settings go to about phone and hit check for updates..you must be on stock froyo and have all the bloatware running..well maybe not all, but..lol If your rooted or on another ROM...sbf..full sbf not system only..it will be waiting for you...if your 100% stock and still do not see it..you should be able to go to droidlife and dl it...or wait for the update to hit your device..sometimes it will get hung up due to their servers being bogged..lol...you won't be long...

    that's what i did, but i think it's only downloading the update to 3.3.0 or whatev, not the new gingerbread update... that's why i was curious if i have to first download the original update before the gingerbread one shows up. either way i'm sure it'll work out fine, just might take a little while

    ok so i'm updated to .330 (i think i've called it something new each time i reference it lol), and under menu>about>system updates i'm told that i'm up to date. is gingerbread actually official for our devices? aside from the pdf's in the OP, i haven't seen anything anywhere else on it...

    Hey Nola! My ex wife, just told me she didn't get the update either..she is stock, completely...so ..the servers are just bogged..no other reason..just be patient..it won't be long!! Ok? No worries..I promise you will it before tomorrow!! Hopefully in another hour or so...as long as its public realease, so that's why its bogged down...also..try and reboot your phone too..never hurts...:)

    Yeah I had been on the leak months ago..it was ok..not a fan of the colors..lol Makes me want to get the Sg2 gonna be the fastest phone as always right out of the box...lol I love mine but I have to give credit to my friends SgS...his flies all over the place..instant..not even tweaked..I just convinced him to let me root it..I'm going to be getting his when he upgrades early to the bionic in a few days...plus since he works for big red, I get the inside scoops!! And killer deals..lol

    The updates roll out in waves to ease the load on the servers. After 2-3 weeks of these wave rollouts, they open access to the new firmware for everyone.

    that being said, should i not even bother waiting for an ota and just go with the leaked .607? would there be any advantages to waiting for the ota?

    With it being moments before your able to pull it, you would be having to sbf back again..so its up to you..and hey, its not going to be 2 to three weeks....lol its very soon, the pdf was up or the link anyway..so, if you want to read it? Its just directions on how to download AND that it has been released...I know that for us..when it bogged down, we just went and got it off of droidlife...:) if indeed it is out and ota, as the pdf says it is, droidlife should have the file posted..I'm sure though you will have to rename it to update.zip and go into recovery, and install as upate:)

    where on droidlife would it be? and if i have to rename to update.zip (the same procedure as the leak) isn't it safe to say that they're the same?

    Well there is a flashable .zip in the tbh app...but I would just wait for the update..save from sbfing back? Ours for the D2 was posted shortly after the release..next or same day...our release was on the 11:30 to 1:00am I believe and was only a couple days after the soak... btw Nola, I am not trying to get your hopes all up or anything..I was told the release was officially out for you all now.. I also read the officicial Release pdf...but if for some reason its unable to be dl'ed you can run the leak or go to droidlife and check to see if it is posted..not the leak, but the official ota...:)
