    It has leaked and is available on the TBH app. You need to sbf back to froyo to do it though. It'll have to wait until I get back home from work.

    These updates aren't usually available all at the same time for everybody. When they say they are rolling it out starting at 11:59PM, it means that some of the DXs will get the update message right away, others in the coming days. To prevent Verizon's servers from being overloaded, they usually do it a few at a time. We don't know what number represents "a few".
