    That is a standard java error when a variable is initialized without a value set then called... I dunno why it said it... reboot the phone maybe?

    I get some random errors sometimes, but mostly it just says "success".

    I'm convinced that the checkin is useless and will not make a difference.

    you know the checkin is for apps and has nothing to do with the OTA, right?

    My theory and understanding from what I've heard and read is that if you are in fact in the queue to be flashed the OTA, it would get it to your phone faster since (I'm speculating here) your phone isn't "checking in" very often, maybe once or twice a day. So in theory you are forcing it to check in more than usual and as a result, would get the OTA faster, maybe by a few hours.

    But of course, If your phone hasn't been selected yet... you're out of luck til the next day most likely.
