    Im on .901 and i know verizons coverage has been crazy today, but i keep getting an annoying update failed to download notification, so i went into the about section and hit system updates, and it says that theres an update currently downloading and that i will be notified when its finished. Anyone received an update?

    Nope, .901 too and no notifications here yet. When it finishes, lets us know what info pops up on the installation screen and please grab the file from your cache before installing and post the file if you can. Wonder what this one could be...

    Be sure to decline the install after it downloads and grab a copy of it from the cache directory for us!

    Does anyone know what the update release process for Verizon is? How is it possible one person (or a group of us) get an update, and others not. Just wondering what the process is. Geographic, higher paying customers, Business over Personal accounts?

    Because no .901 for me either.

    Correct! It'll be a .zip file in the "/cache"

    As someone mentioned, you have to click "install later" once it finishes downloading and then copy it from the cache. If you click install now, it'll begin the installation immediately and automatically delete the .zip file when the installation completes.

    You can sign up for a free mediafire account (it's what I use / simple & clean upload interface) and just upload the .zip file there once you have it and just post the download url for us.

    Also -- I believe it will be gone from /cache if the phone is rebooted, so be sure to grab it before a restart or power-off.

    Since its already trying to download i hope it gives me the option to install later. And why would they have an update for an accidentally pushed update? To downgrade? Would be nice if it was a dev update with an accidentally pushed. Unlocked bootloader. "Dreaming of course lol" ugh come on 4g, i atleast want to know the revision number.

    I'm sure someone in the neighborhood has an unsecured connection...
