    Verizon says it is not available on my phone and I do not see it in market. Guess I am S.O.L. on the update....

    You can get it from THIS site, but do not try to install it like a regular app. You need to move it into system/app and then change the permissions to:

    Owner: Read, Write
    Group: Read
    Others: Read

    Then just reboot your phone.

    You need to use a root file browser like Root Explorer. Open the file explorer you've chosen, navigate to /sdcard, long press on the app, select "move" or "cut", then navigate to /system/app, paste, the long press on it and select "Permissions" and change them as indicated above.

    Super Manager will do the trick as well.

    What do you mean no luck so far. Did you follow binary's steps? If so it should have worked. What steps did you take. We need more info
