    Do you have to defrost any frozen apps in TB to get the OTA? Or just to install it after getting it?

    I wasn't able to download it but I signed up for Dropbox (loaded the Dropbox app) and that worked (downloaded)..

    How do I load the update now?

    1 Download the update onto your external sd-card.
    2 Power down your phone.
    3 Hold down both volume buttons, then press power button.
    4 Select recovery by pressing volume down then volume up.
    5 At the Android logo press both volume buttons.
    6 Select "apply update from sdcard" and then select the file downloaded in step 1 (Use vol up/down to navigate and power to select).
    7 Reboot.

    dautley you beat me to that.

    Just an FYI, I didn't defrost any of the 17 apps I had frozen in TB, didn't remove safestrap, didn't unroot, just downloaded from the link and installed the same way as dautley stated. Installed fine. rebooting now.

    Lost root, used Motofail to get it back. Apps still froze in TB, safestrap recovery needed re-installed.

    :D:D

    Will installing the update through recovery mode delete everything like a factory reset?

    No it did not factory reset... I just did the update. Everything is intact.

    I followed dautley's 7 steps above...perfect! :)

    Just an observation since the MANUAL update...my phone is running EXTRA HOT and my EXTENDED BATTERY was not charging at all. I just switched batteries.

    Not liking this at all.

    At this point I would revert if I could.

    Could the manual update I downloaded be bad?

    HELP!

    I performed the update manually also. The phone seems fine....not hot and I do have the extended battery.

    Maybe your install got corrupted somehow?? Are you rooted??

    Thanks guys,
    It's better this morning, since I did the battery switch. Had me worried.

    Did you download it to your sdcard or sdcard-ext? It needs to be on the sdcard-ext, even though in recovery it only says sdcard. Stupid file naming system.
    This is what mine says as well.

    I know I'm not supposed to say anything, as I'm part of this 905 soak test...but be forewarned, testers are experiencing LOADS of data drop/handoff/connectivity issues. I would not recommend installing this manual update. YMMV.

    It's not a soak, it's going OTA. Attached are the .pdf files of VZW's site.

    It is a soak for those who receive notification ON THEIR PHONE, and I'm referring to those that are manually downloading from the Dropbox location.
