    You might want to give the guys a little more info like what ROM you're running and such.

    It looks like your modem was updated. FF19 is new I think. I may be wrong because I'm not using a Prevail any longer but I'm pretty sure that's what's up.:D

    Yes i received the same thing. However I am rooted and I already know that I can't install update. But with the latest tower troubles in Toledo, I am curious if this update would improve service. If so, how might i go about updating....

    I am currently running
    Android 2.3.6
    Baseband FE16
    Kernel 2.6.35.7

    Anyone that has the update, please snag it and upload it.
    It should be in /cache (in downloads folder, i believe)

    If Nobody gets it for you, i'm still on 3.6 with the updates disabled my way. I'll turn back off and see if updates show up and get it. May work and may not, we'll see.

    Nothing is currently listed as official.

    edit: I seem to get updates 7-10 days after others. I guess I am OK with this as I learn to/not allow while waiting.

    First, i looked for this update all over on my SD card and internal file system. to no avail. my phone keeps asking for me to update but everytime i try the phone reboots and gives me a yellow triangle with an '!' in the middle. and freezes. maybe someone can help me out with that.

    other than that i found this on samsungs website.....

    Anybody had a chance to look at this yet. Is it worth posting the baseband on the Odin thread yet?

    the update did not install. I got the notification again yesterday.

    my guess is that this update will, among other things, change teh google search behavior in response to a recently announced court ruling in a case brought by apple.

    Same here, I was receiving a system update notice. I'm rooted with FE16 and have link2sd installed. Decided what the heck, worst case scenerio is I will have to reinstall some apps and reroot phone.


    Well,.................. Nothing happened. Said my system is currently up to date

    Was expecting something to happen. But at least I got rid of the notification. :)
