    I got a message saying it was ready to download but I haven't yet. Its 58 MB. If you look at system updates on your phone you can view the details.

    Just checked, and mine is still saying no updates under "System Updates". I'm on AT&T in the US if it makes a difference.

    Is the update US only? I'm in the UK and haven't been prompted to update.

    If there was an update soak that went out to ppl that signed up for Motorola feedback, chances r nobody is going to say anything. One of the conditions of being eligible for early releases of updates is to keep quiet about it.

    I got the notice today and it said best to be fully charged, plugged in and on wifi to do the update. Recommended backing up contacts first. I'll wait a few days. v4.5.141

    Release notes don't have anything major, just something about improving stability and reducing the need to reboot (my phone reboots itself about once a week, have to remove battery now and then to do full reboot myself).

    Are either of you rooted? If so how are you planning to preserve roor or reroot.

    I would like to wait as well, but every hour the update message pops up, can I just download the update but not run it?

    Thanks :)

    Not doing this update yet until I find out if it's flashing people back to stock and removing root access.

    I did the update last night, took about 10 mins (after the download), phone rebooted twice on its own.

    Don't notice any differences in look or feel, guess it a more behind-the-scenes update.

    When I check for updates I get "Check for update is not available at this time. Try again later." I wish this would come in for me! I want to see if this makes my phone perform better, fix the issues I've been seeing.

    I think I read somewhere that you must be connected via WiFi to download this update..

    I think that message happens when the servers are overloaded/busy. Try it again at an off time.

    Same thing with mine, until it just got to a point IT JUST LOADED FOR EVER. Then i tried again by turning the phone off and back on, go to settings>About phone>system updates. And in a few minutes or less i got the message. You should try it. And you need to be connected to wifi.

    Friends,

    I am from India and I got this Atrix 4G phone two weeks ago, an unlocked one. I am using it with a vodafone sim here and it works pretty good. The seller of this phone told me that this phone is unlocked with the code that is provided by AT&T, So I should be able to update the OS or using with custom ROM. Yesterday, I got a notification in my phone saying that an update on the software is available for AT&T users and enable WI-FI to begin download.

    I alomost all the sites, I read that this update is available only for AT&T users and I am not sure would I get the notification if the udpate is available only for At&T users. Also what will happen if I (who is not a AT&T user :))download and install the latest update on my phone.

    Will there be any issues with the phone (like getting re-locked) if I install the update ?

    Thanks.

    I'm surprised that this OTA update didn't fix the renown Atrix battery issue (showing the battery in increments of 10% rather than every 1%).

    I believe that is a Motorola quirk not an Atrix issue.

    I see. Do you think Motorola knows about the issue? Maybe plans to fix it in the near future?

    I don't even know if Moto considers it an issue. Motorola phones have typically been this way even the latest device, the Maxx has 10% steps. Its kind of how Samsungs do not have a notification LED.

    What I am disapointed in is that it didn't fix the battery jumping up by 15-20% after recycling power. This came about with the GB update, wasn't there before.
