Anybody else notice the serial number on the top speaker grill.
Test unit?

EDIT: Went back and saw someone else noticed it.
Most likely, screenshot in OP isn't actually OP's phone as I saw this story reported on another website already.

why would you wanna create a new username just for that?

My guess would be it has to do with him having a test phone.

IMM76Q could easily have a radio fix in addition to the patent stuff. We all know IMM76K has issues holding 4G connections, especially indoors. Even on a somewhat OK 4G signal, it'll cut back down to 3G. That's something that could be fixed in IMM76Q in addition to the patent fix because I guarantee that radio issue could be fixed in code (especially if it's a kernel problem). If you could fix it in code, you wouldn't need an entire new radio firmware.

Remember on the GSM Galaxy Nexus how IMM76D had all those problems with the cellular connection cutting out entirely until you turned the screen back on? That turned out to be a kernel issue. IMM76I (which fixed it) didn't include a new radio, only a new kernel.

So perhaps the VZW reps are right. Maybe in addition to this including the patent fix, whatever it turns out to be, it will also fix the 3/4G switch issue.

Lets see if we can get a link to the update zip without installing it. Then we can unpack it, see what's in it, and repack a CWM version with only the parts we want.

Update: Imm76q
I have attempted several times to install the IMM76Q update without success. I believe the device is a testing model, but not quite sure. See results below. Any suggestions?

Why don't you use logcat to get the url?

Yes, as was mentioned before, get the file name for us and we can show you how to install it.

Despite its small size, it is a pretty extensive update. It includes a kernel patch, as well as updates to most of the system files.

Drats. Reverse-engineering this one to see what is new improved functionality, and what is Apple-imposed sodomy of the Framework will be difficult. :(
