Telus made their available earlier today, and Bell's is out now.

On a side note, does anyone know how to get the update on a rooted device? I just rooted mine a few weeks ago. Still running stock ROM, but nothing I've tried seems to work.

Forget it, you won't be able to get it through official OTA.

Once you're rooted, your only way to update is to wait for someone to create a flashable zip of the update, flash the entire ROM by downloading from samfirmware or wait for a custom ROM.

Be careful using the toolkit. Its been known to brick devices and cause other problems as well.

Yay. Pretty much the same as using any method I suppose. Got lucky I guess.
