    For me this link only downloads 164MB of the 646MB total. Does anyone have an alternate source?

    I had the same exact problem after modifying a system file. After searching for about a week I stumbled on this post, tried it, and it worked like a charm! Thank you so much!

    It is doing exactly the same thing for me. It stops at 164 MB. Did you figure out how to get the file? I've tried three times on different browsers and even on my phone.

    Yup, download stops at 164mb, can someone mirror the t-mo firmware and post up link?
    Thanks.

    I just completed a device exchange with T-Mobile: had to go two weeks without my phone since I am prepaid (had to dust off my old Optimus T).

    I received a new phone, probably a refurb, that shipped with the "b" version installed. Overall, it works fine: noticed the new font on "G" "2G" etc and the new LTE logo, etc. Seems to have fixed the deleting of the second word on stock keyboard as well. My only gripe is that the new phone has a noticeable background noise (Not sure how to describe it: sorta sounds tinny with a steady ticking noise. Also reminds me of the sound that you get if you put an AT&T phone next to a speaker). I don't know if this is common for this phone: I don't recall hearing any noise on my original device.

    I wish I could have just flashed my old phone since I knew its history. I would still like to obtain a new copy of the KDZ for archival/backup purposes. I want to root again but am now afraid to touch it without a good backup or stock image. I'm sure I won't be able to resist rooting either way but I don't want a repeat of this.
