    I'm starting to doubt all this news about an update being pushed out the next couple of days. Been looking around the popular sites and now one has gotten it yet. If you have gotten it, please post your experience and any issues you came across while updating your phone. Also, post your post update experience.

    Rooted/ sideload enabled. Will report back if phone retains root status, etc.

    I got two text messages from AT & T this morning saying to click OK when it prompts to update but no actual updates yet.

    I have seen two SMS messages this morning, one at 7:41am ET and the other at 8:45am ET noting the following:

    AT&T FREE MSG: AT&T is providing a free update for your phone. When asked to install the update, please select OK. Thank You.


    Does this mean I will get it today, or just sometime this week?

    Cuerbo, good idea on starting this thread. I just want to add, can you guys please post more details about your phone's setup when you ran the update (i.e. firmware you were running before the update, rooted and so on.)
    This will give the rest of us an idea if we have to return the phone to stock or not, and in general what to expect.

    Thanks

    Stock. Update retains root/ sideload.


    GPS still doesn't work.

    Morning, I can confirm that the update started being pushed out today. Took all of 3 minutes to install. I did not get the sms notification but I checked for an update and it downloaded it. Hope this helps. So far definitely seems more responsive. GPS appears to be snappier too. :)

    I manually tried to get too and it did get and download an update, but then restarted the phone and then got a message saying the update was not applied and now won't let me check again unless i reset my date, the 24hr check in effect. Oh well guess I will wait for them to push it. :D

    Mine is completely stock. I checked for the update and it updated successfully. I can say that the GPS is improved (finally got a lock) but can't say it's fixed until I try it out on the road.

    For those that received the update and had changed the GPS settings but did not root. Did you have to reset the settings back or did the update do that for you?

    I still cant get a lock using the GPS on its own (without wireless networks). Haven't tried it with wireless networks though.

    Just checked for update and it's installing now (stock, not rooted, had the phone a few weeks).

    Edit: Didn't receive a text from AT&T before checking.

    I checked the manual update this morning and downloaded/installed with no issues in about 10 minutes (non-root).

    It is updating right now. It rebooted into a screen that is white with a blue bar and text that says Software Update. At 92% as I am writing this.

    Edited: It rebooted and came to the Galaxy S logo, which is doing its color cycling. This has been going on for over a minute. I will let it sit like this for a while.

    Edited(2): I am rooted, but nothing else.

    Edited(3): Update done. Just waiting for the widgets to load and the media scanner to finish.

    I just received the update - it went smoothly. I'll check to see if the GPS is improved in a bit.

    I'm on deck, postponed it for an hour. I'm trying to decide whether I need to remove my Voodoo fix before I do this (I'm thinking yes, since if it's a new kernel, it won't see th ext4 FS).

    I'm downloading an update now. Everyone who requested an update last night will have to wait until that time tomorrow because you can only check for an update once every 24hrs. I will let you guys know what I can find in the update. I did have gps problems so I will check that out. Also, I hope there is a lag fix. If we can get a gps and lag fix, I don't mind waiting another month or two until froyo.

    Rooted and sideloading enabled. No other intrusive mods. Running Launcher Pro.

    Received the update by manually checking. it downloaded, reset the phone a couple of times, and told me the update failed.

    Checked, running JH7 now. So apparently the fail report is flawed. :)

    Checked for update manually, it was there and updated successfully. I was on stock rom. The full process took about 3 min or so and completed without any errors. FWIW, GPS never got a lock inside my house earlier but now using Google Maps got a lock in about 15 sec and at least 10 feet away from windows/doors

    Stock firmware, not rooted:

    Was having messaging troubles yesterday and today so I decided to check for an update for kicks (just joined the forum, didn't know they had an update planned)...

    In any event, it found it/downloaded/installed in about 6 minutes. GPS still doesn't have an accurate lock, although I do have 'Quickoffice' now, and my messaging troubles went away.
