I'll tell you why, because it gives people something to do. Maybe everyone else getting the update and your not, you would want to know what is up.

But this thread was suppose to be for people once they get their update.

Not for people that just want to pee on all the threads like you.

Have some respect!

Ok but why not wait for the update to happen THEN post a new thread?

This might be buried on page 7 by the time the update comes.

Because the first people to get it might not think of posting that they got it. If they see this thread, they'll be more likely to post.

And that's ALL I'm posting here. Unless my Droid Incredible gets "updated" to 1.6 w/TWiz I'm not getting this OTA, so I have no business posting here.

It's probably safe to assume that the BH2 owners left on here probably don't know how to turn it into an ODIN image for the rest of us to leech right?

Well that is why we have a all things root section and a post that covers it. The question however is will this update prove the other guy right in that he was saying 2.1 or will we get to laugh at his thought of samsung actually releasing 2.1?

No, my question is whether or not someone on here knows how to turn the new, official 1.6 update into a file that we can use with Odin. I'm not looking for a rooted version. I'm looking for a way to update manually without having to wait on TMobile.

Probably not fast enough for it to matter. By the time its turned into an image for odin most people should have the update.

Yea good point. Chances are I'll go back to one of BH_MAN's ROMS, but I'm just more curious I guess to see if the tweaking they did got rid of the processor bottleneck and made Twiz somewhat faster.

You say that but some people only got a partial update (i.e. Failed update that flagged that phone as getting it) and some never got the update even after a month!

(I was one such person)
I had to rely on the kindness of other forum members here to get the last update.

Something else you should add when you get the update is perhaps what city and state you are in so that if some one in the same city does not get it they can call Tmo and say WTF. Just my opinion.

And no I have not got it yet but there are some rules in order to get it. I'll start a thread so every one knows them. brb

I will be making Odin packages for the Samsung 1.6 OTA update, but I will need the help of 1 or 2 community members with the update already installed. See my post for more info: http://androidforums.com/samsung-behold-2/54385-updated-odin-images-available-latest-t-mobile-stock-2.html#post1000875

I received the update, woke up this morning and there it was waiting for me. Went to bed around 1am, so it happened somewhere between 1am and 7am. San Antonio, TX.

So you can only get it from like 11pm to 6:00am, you can just get it at anytime? This seems like a really convoluted procedure. When Tmo updated my Dash, I just went to the Tmo website, downloaded a file and followed the simple update instructions, bam done.

Default Get OTA 1.6 using APN epc.tmobile.com

I live in Renton, WA. I have a data connection, not the android plan, with APN using internet2.voicestream.com for internet connection. I didn't get the OTA update though I noticed attempted "Device Manager" connection with two diagnonal arrows shown in the left upper corner of the notification area briefly. I changed the APN to epc.tmobile.com and switch off/on the phone again. This time, the "Device Manager connecting" indicator remained on for about 20 minutes and showing 3G activities too. The screen suddenly pop up a message congratulating me for getting update software and asked me to continue. After clicking continue, the updating process began and took another 20-30 minutes to complete with a reboot. Checking the "about phone" messages, it indicated OS version 1.6. All these happened after 7:30am PST.

That is build T939UVJA3 that was patched in 2 months ago and still Android 1.5. You don't have the 1.6 update yet.

Yeah the Last one BH_MAN got was T939UVJC2 which was done on March 17. (This all according to the Changelog File that was in the Stock Files he got, interesting reading on the progression and what errors they "KNEW" about.) It was also the 1st Donut Build.

I could use an Odin of the new release. I no longer have T-mo so I doubt I'd get the update while connected via wifi. I would like to have it to see what Sammy did on their own.

All these happened after 7:30am PST.

At 11:20pm PDT (in AZ) I also switched my APN (I use a WAP APN for my data generally) as above and rebooted my phone, this time, just like reported the Device Manager connection kept going for 15 minutes. It then gave me a congratulations screen and asked me to continue. Which I did, the next screen said it would take about 10 minutes to complete the update. It then gave me a progress bar. Got to about 50% in 3 minutes and rebooted. Then continued from 50% on the progress bar for 8 more minutes. It then rebooted, taking maybe a little more time than its normal slow process to do so (about 5 minutes).

Total time from first reboot to back up and running 31 minutes.

I am now at 1.6!

Details:
Download of update: 15 minutes
Unpacking of installation files: 3 minutes
Installation: 8 minutes
Reboot: 5 minutes
Total Time: 31 minutes

Firmware version: 1.6
Baseband Version: T939UVJE2

I am pleased to report this OS is MUCH faster. Like WAY noticeably faster!!

The widget tray is bigger and icons in it are bigger.

Google Maps is now just Maps and includes navigation (which looks like it loads a different App and asks you to install voice).

Seems like there might be some new sound effects for a few things as well.

I will add more to this report as I check out more things.

Updates after some more exploring...

  • Android Market is updated (way nicer GUI)
  • Google Navigation is awesome
  • Several other apps updated for this new version as well.
  • Updated settings options
  • Did I say WAY faster? It's WAY faster.
  • Swype is now default. It's awesome! Nice tutorial too. I got the hang of it quickly. Will probably remove the other addon keyboard I was using.

Haven't tried out the SD card that was giving me problems before to see if it still does. I will do that tomorrow.

So far quite please with the update. Yeah it ain't 2.x, but it definitely has breathed new life into the phone - one I actually happen to like.

I'd help you out if I could get the damn update! I downgraded from Galaxy to get this thing and it won't update. Mutherflippers!

amp-I'm in St. Petersburg, FL, and no update. I got the phone yesterday.

Nu11u5-I'll help out with any thing. This phone is strangled with crap software. So far, the best thing on it is the map of the world on the back.

In Cambridge, MA-- got the update around 6AM this morning. Huge improvement; still not enough to make me happy with a phone that's not getting 2.x.

(Note that I rebooted the phone and switched it back to touchwiz from dxtop just before I went to bed. Was plugged into the wall, had 3G/full signal)

Default This worked for me

If you guys haven't gotten the update yet try this: go to settings and make sure that wifi is turned off (I'm pretty sure you can only get the update through 3g). Plug the phone into the charger and turn it off. Then turn it back on. Once the home screen pops up you should see the two arrows (red and blue) at the top and the 3g icon flashing. That means the phone is trying to get the update. If the arrows disappear the connection was lost so turn the phone off and restart it again.

I tried this three times and it finally worked. I suppose that turning the phone off/on and making it find the t-mobile towers is what helps. Anyways just thought I would share.

Okay. Thanks. I kinda like the phone, hope this update makes it better though.
