    just recieved a ota update (3am gmt), clicked on more details which said it was a security update. same as the once recieved a few months ago.
    havent noticed any changes but it did take faking ages to book after installing, staying on the android screen for about 5 mins.

    Just got the same thing OTA, and yes, it did take quite awhile to finish and boot up.

    I received my update this morning as well and like the other forum members took about 5 mins to go from the android logo. All seems well at the moment. No noticeable changes

    Ok just a little FYI for anyone who is running a rooted JesusFreke build you will receive the update notification as per JF he posted this on his site:

    July 19, 2009

    "If you are on the US or EU versions of JFv1.51, you’ll likely get an OTA update notification soon, if you haven’t already. I had accidentally left in the file, which allows OTAs to be downloaded and verified. For now, there are a few possible work arounds.

    1. delete the file manually. The file is at /system/etc/security/ But keep in mind if you use this method your phone will continuously re-down the OTA and try to verify it, which is bad on your bandwidth usage and your battery life

    2. Replace /system/build.prop on your phone with the one from the ADP1 version of JFv1.51

    3. chmod 000 the OTA file in /cache (unconfirmed solution, but is likely to work)
    Or you can ignore the popups for now, and wait for my new release based on the new update (CRC1). I promise to “disable” the OTA mechanisms in a better way than simply deleting [​IMG] . I should be able to get something out soon (next few days)

    In the meantime, even if you accidentally hit “accept” on the popup, it won’t be able to install the update when it gets into recovery, so you aren’t at risk of losing root access. "

    I woke up at 4am last night and got a pop up saying a system update & yea it did take forever! to get from the android logo I timed it and it look 8 mins lol

    oh & I'm in the US new york if anyone wants to know.

    I don't notice any real significat changes but the browser doesn't do that stupid reload thing anymore. so that's good.

    I got my update this morning (T-Mobile G1 in New Jersey). Same as everybody it took a while to reboot... haven't noticed any differences... and it could be my imagination... but it seems like my phone is running smoother (faster). Probably my overactive (optimistic) imagination though.

    I've been having problems with Android ever since my security update this morning. I haven't changed any apps in ages, so I'm guessing the update interacted weirdly with something I have installed! I'm so frustrated - my dial & home buttons stopped working, and the worst part is that although I found a potential solution to this problem that wouldn't require a factory reset (Dial and Home buttons stopped working - Page 4 - Android Community Forums), I also am having issues getting into the Market! I don't know what to do. Nothing seems to be working for me anymore. I'd almost rather not have had the security update, booo. :(

    Try shutting off phone, take battery out, wait 1+ minutes, replace battery, turn phone back on.

    Might clear things up for you.
  16. Got the security update a few minutes ago.

    Didn't notice anything new but the connection to 3G appears to be a bit faster than it's been all morning (probably due to the fact that it was quietly downloading the update in the background).

    Firmware updates with no new features are so boring. :p

    I was later on able to access Market, but unfortunately using the fix I had found (see link below) didn't help, as Setup Wizard kept force-quitting out on me when I got to the point where I was entering my sn/pwd to log into Google (even though I've been logged into Google). So at least the update wasn't affecting my access to the Market, but I'm still unable to use my home/dial buttons, nor do I have any functionality other than "shut down" on my power-off. Oh, and it plays weird music whenever I connect via USB to my computer. Hmm.

    I haven't been able to get a 3G data connection since the upgrade, so the only sync I get is when I am connected by wireless. Has anyone else had this or know of a fix?

    i am using a different ROM. A rooted Daldroid Rogers rom. Can I download the update and do it manually? I am afraid that there will be issues.
    which update should i go for? the UK or the US?

    I'm not an expert but from what I do know, you should not attempt to load any of these. You should look for a rooted CRC1 ROM and use that.
