    Installed update. (Not rooted) The only difference I've seen so far is that I have to hold the power button down longer to get the shutdown/restart window :thinking:

    It would be nice to see some release notes on these updates.

    Update via USB is way better than OTA. It will only update once :)






    Nope, we think it just improves battery life :)







    Does your battery last longer?


    I don't know.

    I'd like to know not only this, but can someone please post a noob-proof, step by step guide to doing this so tech dummies like myself can so it? :)

    Now that you mention it, the batt does seem to be holding better, but that might just be wishful thinking. I've only had the update installed for a few hours, and I'm at work not using phone much, so its hard to tell. I'll post later today after I've used it more

    Or you know what, maybe I don't need to do it. I checked just now under "software version" on my phone and it said MS77010e. Looks like I already have it (?).

    Just downloaded it and installed it!

    However, earlier posts on this thread said the download was 570mb???

    Mine was only 13.10mb.

    I don't get it!

    The OTA update only includes the new software that is used to overwrite the old software.

    The 500+MB download is the entire device firmware including the updated software and is flashed to the phone manually using software tools on your PC.

  17. Took a bit over 40 min start to finish for me on an Acer Aspire and marginal Wifi.

    Everything still works anyway. :rolleyes:

    Thanks.

    Since I've already downloaded and installed the 13.10mb OTA version, can I still download and install the 570mb version via PC?

    If so, what do I do after I download the cab file?

    Not sure, Sammyz will know.

    but, if I had to take a educated guess, you may need to use Sammyz guide to downgrade, and then run the update with the PC.

    Edit: I guess my educated guess was correct.
