    It's an advance testing of new software and firmware sent out to owners who registered with the Motorola Feedback network and were invited to participate. It's supposed to be secret and those who are invited and agree to participate are not to discuss any of it with anyone else, other than in a private forum.

    My understanding is that the latest "invite" is for testing of a relatively minor OTA maintenance update, not anything like a 4.2 update or anything like that.

    Yeah, that's pretty much been confirmed.

    Anyone know HOW they'll contact you for the soak test anyhow? Email?

    Yeah, I knew it was a "maintenance" update when I originally posted, however, I'm still curious to know when it is coming out and when people begin to receive it. Maintenance updates can sometimes fix issues that have plagued devices for some time...

    Once Motorola announces a soak test, Motorola Feedback Network members are notified by email and asked if they wish to participate. Within a week or so the participants receive the update to download and test. There is a private forum to report how the update is working. If all goes well the OTA update goes out to the phones shortly thereafter.

    If you are interested in joining the Feedback Network, go to the Motorola Owners Forum and sign up. Then perhaps you can be a part of a future soak test. Hope this helps. :)

    Word on twitter the maintenance update is not rootable and bootloader is not unlockable. Looks like they patched it up good this time.

    If its true (and come on its Moto/Verizon) and you are unlocked or rooted. Just stay away from it. Whatever was updated, if its important will be incorporated by the devs. No point of taking the risk.

    If your bootloader is unlocked then you have nothing to worry about it can't be relocked because the Bootloader QFuse is blown in the process and if your rooted then you might be able to keep root by using ota rootkeeper. But like u said it's always best to steer clear of updates till developers check them out.

    Theoretically if they just pushed a new bootloader with the update then they can lock it no? Heard that somewhere, may be false.

    They can't lock a bootloader if the Bootloader Qfuse is blown they would have to take the phone apart an replace the QFuse

    If you happen to have Root and/or Unlocked Bootloader, don't get too excited about this. If you did take the survey and saw this screen, this should shed some light on the topic.

    You would know if you got it, nothing to check for since it is pushed to the phone and you get a message as such.
