This is how to get the update URL if you've received an OTA update:

Method 1
1) Do NOT install the update yet!!!!!!!!!! If you do, or reboot, the URL will disappear;
2) Cancel the update;
3) Plug your device to your computer and open a command prompt;
4) Type adb logcat > logcat.txt;
5) Recheck for the update and install;
6) When it finishes, look at the logcat.txt file on your computer and find a URL that starts off with http://android.clients.google.com/packages/ota/ with a bunch of numbers after it, and ending in .zip;
7) Post it in this thread and here ;
8) Done.

Method 2
1) Do NOT install the update yet!!!!!!!!!! If you do, or reboot, the URL will disappear;
2) Cancel the update;
3) Go to the Market and install this;
4) Recheck for the update and cancel again;
5) Open the app that you just installed, and browse through it backwards until you a URL that starts off with http://android.clients.google.com/packages/ota/ with a bunch of numbers after it, and ending in .zip;
6) Post it in this thread and here ;
7) Done.

Note: It's been over a year since I've done this, but I'm pretty sure this will work.
