    Just wait, with their recent track record on this patch they may have fixed a few things and broken something else. ;)

    Just received the notification when I switched from my JB 4.2.2 CM 10.1 RC5 ROM back to my JB 4.1.2 Stock Verizon ROM, I deferred it for another two days, also since I am unlocked and rooted, I did not want to cause any issues, will load the debloated one from XDA developers once I see that it is stable.

    Is this the fixed update that includes multi window, or just a fix for the radio?

    Can anyone confirm if root is preserved after applying this update OTA?

    And the answer is.....this update adds all the other items, like the multi window, even if you didn't get or take the last update. Wife just got it and it added every thing.

    Didn't take the update because I decided to stay on Synergy. Like I always say... don't try to fix something that isn't broken.

    Here is my take on the new update, yes it works fine, no issues but one, the download and upload speeds have been crippled with the new radios, going from the stock Verizon ROM to my CM 10.1 RC 5 JB 4.2.2 ROM is like night and day, my upload and download speeds have tripled running CM , plus my phone is super smooth, actually it feels liquid smooth compared to the bloat fest loaded stock ROM.

    My hubby's phone seems to be doing much better. The only issue he is having is that his 4g LTE stays on. Found out it's caused by that app "caller ID name" that comes preloaded. I had to disable the app in the application list to fix the 4g LTE issue. Other than that the phone is running much smoother. No speed issues, no data drop issues, and multi Window is still there :D

    With my reset procedure and all the updates including this one. My phone works the way it should and did. Maybe even a bit better! ;)
