    My wife hasn't. I updated manually because I knew that there would be an issue getting it OTA.

    I'm rooted and am preparing to update to a slightly tweaked ROM based on the official update (has the GPS fix, gives you the ability to remove Sprint bloatware, etc.).

    I've been dodging the official update for three days because it keeps trying to install. Wish we could trade places!

    I hear you.. But as of this morning, I have Gingerbread. Good luck with your upgrade avoidance. I guess its one of the downsides of being rooted.

    My brother got it, but I haven't. He has the seemingly typical GPS/shutter sound issues, but not the reboot issues. I'm kinda scared of getting it tbh, haha.

    Went to Sprint today and guy had 4 epics with issues with install. He recommended the following: hard reset of phone (3 salute buttons) then load new install of OTA update. He said I should wait until all problems identified. Hope this helps

    I had the same problem, I'm happy with my phone on Bonsai & want to wait for the Dev's to work their magic on Gingerbread before I switch.

    I was getting the pop up every 15 - 30 min, but I used the FOTAKill.zip & now no more pesky update notice. I had to back door it to get it installed but it works.

    Check out this thead: [Q] HELP How to STOP update popup? - xda-developers

    Hope this helps.....been 5 hrs with not a peep so far....
