    You have to be unrooted in order to flash the leaked OTA, aka the radio upgrade.

    Make sure your memory card is formated to FAT32
    Put PB31IMG.ZIP onto your SD Card
    Shut off your phone
    Hold volume down and power to boot into Hboot and release buttons
    Should read your PB31IMG.ZIP and prompt you to update

    Make sure your releasing the button once you see the hboot?

    Ok I am gonna take a chance and sound stupid but I want to know. Has the official update been released yet? And do I need to unroot to see the available update on my phone. I know there have been speculation about the release date....but I read on one site it came out a few days ago....is that correct?

    you can format it from the SD Card settings on your phone, or from your Windows machine when mounted in Windows. Also note this has to do with your radio file version and not your "antenna"

    mine is fat 32... i followed JONAMERICA tut. as well but after I get back to stock, put the update.zip on the sd, and enter hboot to recovery I get an error saying something about a cache error then I choose the update.zip file any way and it seems to load then I get "signature not valid or something". I used the same .zip file and unroot file from JONAMERICAs tutorial...any help would be great

    I had the same problem with this. I was using firefox and Alzip to download and save the file on my computer and using 3 different memory cards.

    So, I decided to download the file straight from from this site(jonamericas) to my phone in the download file. Next, I mounted phone to computer by choosing the disk drive icon and made sure I had debugging selected too. Then, I transferred the file from the internal storage to the sd card in the phone and this finally worked for me.

    I noticed by doing it this way the file size was 22.4mb and every time I tried to go from computer to phone the file size was 22.3mb

    Maybe this would work for you and others. Also, I checked with Astro app that the file was named update.zip. If you push and hold down the the file update, a box will pop up as file options, choose edit, then rename file will show it as update.zip and if it shows up update.zip.zip just erase the last .zip and and accept the new name as update.zip
