    How many D3 owners have update to the new. 906 update? Please post if you have installed it. Post if you're having issues, also. And if you ARE having issues, what issues are you having? Happy posting! :D

    Wife's replacement was a new phone with 906 about three weeks ago. Has been good so far. The most noticeable improvement is the camera is quicker and smoother.

    Got it yesterday and so far the only difference I've seen is that it reloaded ALL THE BLOATWARE and unrooted me. Other than that I can't tell the difference.

    I have it too, seems like my D3 is a lot slower and it is always redrawing. The camera is a lot better though!

    Just downloaded it. So we have to root our phones all over again after the update?

    Yes. With the Droid 4 root exploit, motofail.

    I was part of the soak test, so I have had the update for a week. The phone continues to run fine for me post-update, 10 days since I received it; specifically, three items were fixed that I noticed:

    - the phone can be restored from sleep mode (long-press power and choose Sleep) without a battery pull and restart. You just long-press power while in sleep mode and the phone comes back, just as it was, within a few seconds - it's definitely faster than shutting down and restarting if you are on a plane, for example

    - the phone does not spontaneously start after shutting down. Speaking of planes, this happened to me twice on a flight last February. I was very glad that I had silenced the phone first.

    - As noted, the camera is better. I still use a better third party camera app, though.

    After about a week, no noticeable difference. Yes, the phone does not restart after powering down. I notice a slight instantaneous camera response on the stock app. But I use Camera ICS, and that has a slight lag anyway.
    The one weird thing is my phone tries to make calls to the last person I dialed when using headphones and Google music or amazon MP3. That happens with the old and new versions. Anyone ever experience that?
