yeah, here's the post I made about it nearly 8 hours ago

Jelly Bean next week

I'll give some credit since you linked the software update page and not just the news page, but the support page is also linked in the article I posted.

Just got the update on my phone. Put the phone on the charger, rebooted and it's installing as I type.

Edit: Upgrade successful, now have 9.1.41.en.US version.

I'm in Missouri. This update info says it is JB. After installing it, I see it's not, additionally there's no Google Now, or any other additions. I don't get it.

You will want to communicate that in the official soak test secret area that may or may not exist.

This is not an official OTA release.

Just got the OTA update on my phone. When I got notified it was there, I put my phone on the charger, rebooted and gave the goahead to install. It took about 10 minutes. Now I have System version 9.1.41.XT926.Verizon.en.US on my Maxx HD.

Been playing with Google Voice search. Very similar to Apples' SIRI. You verbally ask a question and it speaks the answer.

Jelly Bean installed on my phone like it was made for it. I think we got a winner, people!

Has anyone been able to KEEP ROOT through this JB update - or does it get extricated as a result of it. And, if you were able to keep it, what protocols did you have in place to insure such.

Thanks, in advance, for your insights.
(I realize this post might have been better placed under rooting, but this seems to be where everyone is talking about the latest updates, and their experiences of it.)

If its not too much trouble can you go into your phone info under setting and tell me if your build number and build date is this:

Build Number
9.8.1Q_39

Build Date
Sat Nov 3

I haven't received the OTA update yet but if those numbers are what your phone shows then its the same as the leak OTA update file found here. I'll just update with that and save myself the trouble of constantly checking my phone for the update. Thanks.

Edit: Nevermind, I got my answer. The leak is the official OTA.

Hopefully the update is significantly more polished than the leak, I'm running the leak version of jelly bean now and it is really laggy. It better be much better in the final release.

I know under your edit you said you got your answer, but just fyi, my build number and build date are exactly as you asked.

To fullerne:

Yes, I did sign up for the soak test but never got asked to participate.

So far as regards to the JB update, I couldn't be happier with it. It's a really nice Android version. Of course the Maxx HD is a great phone so all around, I think we have a winner.

Now I'm just waiting for my next smartphone to be released sometime in the Summer of 2014!

I got the OTA update on 12/02/12, I installed it and when everything came back, there was no update. There's no changes to my phone whatsoever. Is there anyway to redo the update? Will a factory data reset force it? I cleared my cache partition as well.

Thanks

It is much better. The first leak started out quick but bogged down very quickly. This leak is much more solid compared to the old. And my battery life is much improved compared to the old leak as well.

"Check for updates is not available at this time. Try again later".

Traveling in Orlando; I'd guess the servers were slammed, no?

Checked mine yesterday and the update was there. Waited until late last night to update and everything went smoothly. I was happy to see it didn't force a factory reset so everything stays exactly as it was before the update. So far just noticed a few new apps (which I will be disabling) and Google Now but I haven't been able to play much since the install. May just be my imagination but transitions/animations seem a little smoother but still not perfect. Haven't tried the camera at all yet.

I got the update right away at noon (CST) yesterday...

I am running all stock, and appearance wise, really didn't notice anything to drastic.

Did find the NFC option and I clicked that to allow NFC activity...I have yet to find someone else with a compatible device to test that out with right now, but will be doing so as soon as I can just to see how that works.

Upgraded the Google search and it is quite an improved version and have really enhanced the voice command portion.

My wife's Razr HD hasn't received the update. She can't figure out why I keep checking her phone. What's a Jelly Bean she asks?

If a factory reset didn't help I don't think the JB update will either. That might be a radio problem and you may want to take it to the store and have them give it look over.

Yep, I keep checking and it says I'm up to date. I assume there is no way for someone capture the update file and up load it so those who are still waiting can go ahead and update?

Hey, watch what you say ... I'm a woman (and an "older" one at that) but I can tell a jelly bean from an ice cream sandwich... (well, I know they taste different at least) and my BF is still on a flip phone and he wouldn't even know from FroYo ...

Maybe they sent it out to a few to test it out, make sure there were no bugs and the rest of us will get it the 2nd part of the week. I really hate how VZW does things. Makes me miss my Galaxy Nexus where it was simple to root.

Seems unclear from the various responses here and at xda whether it is a soak test or not. Some who have gotten it already signed up for the test, some didn't

Not sure exactly what a soak test is but why would VZW release something saying that the phones would be getting the update if it was only to be sent out to people for this test?

I'm enjoying Google now on my razr HD with the jelly bean update I got Monday but the phone feels the same in terms of transition speed on screens. I compared it to one with ICS and didn't noticed a difference. Also the quadrant and vellamo score are pretty much the same which surprised me. My phone isn't slow but I was expecting it to be even snappier! Wonder if a master rest would help or not in speed and benchmarks. Data connectivity is better I noticed not that it was bad to begin with. Think its worth a master reset or are people getting similar effects. BTW I love the update I was just expecting more from project butter. I found no issue so far.

They *have* to do a soak test to root out last minute issues. Imagine what would happen if they didn't stagger it or soak test it. a) their infrastructure would get hammered with everyone doing the upgrade and b) one glitch can knock out the entire user population.

I had to wait for months for my Bionic ICS update so I've been conditioned to be very patient! But I'm guilty of hitting the "check update..." every few hours!
