I've got it
I'm downloading the update right now (373.46 MB). If anyone can tell me where to look for the download url I will grab it and post it.

If you are near a computer with ABD installed (I wasn't earlier today and didn't want to wait to update):

How to grab the GOTA link to share: (from Droid-Life posting)
Install the Android SDK, enable USB debugging (does NOT require root), (great video from @qbking77 here) on your computer
When prompted to download an update, immediately plug your phone into that computer (with the SDK installed)
From that computer open a command prompt and type "adb devices" which will start the daemon, then type "adb logcat" and hit enter (information will start spewing from your phone to the command window)
THEN tap the download the update button on your phone, monitor the information from the logcat and find the URL (should start with "android.clients.google.com")
Might be easiest to copy the logcat into a text file and search for it (capture using command: adb logcat -d > logcat.txt) as the information might be too fast and furious on screen to read any of it
Once you have the URL, please post it in this thread so we can put it in the OP

I had already started downloading it so I wasn't able to go into adb. I did try running alogcat, but I guess I was too late for that too. I'm sure someone else will grab the url - someone more knowledgeable than me.

From my understanding once you take the new update you cannot odin any previous Android version. I'm not interested in downgrading but I thought it might be worth sharing

That was my experience - I took the OD3 update and tried to Odin back to OA6, but it failed.

I wonder if that is due to the Factory Reset Protection that was added. This feature is supposed to prevent a thief from performing a Factory Reset on a locked phone, making a stolen phone useless. It would be a loophole if you could downgrade and then do the factory reset. If this is the case, I wonder what other implications there may be (does it affect a custom recovery, etc).

Yes that's what I've read but I won't be taking the update to experiment. I like the idea but I like my odin freedom MOAR

Yes this would be quite interesting because I am assuming that there will be at least a few more updates to our phone. Hopefully one that would bring us to 5.1.1 or whichever version is the latest at that time. It you can't downgrade via Odin after OD3 can you upgrade? I did read someone in the moar these said they were running moar 6.2f with that firmware. It would be interesting to see how a custom recovery works under that firmware. In theory if you can get a custom recovery installed you could do a "factory reset."
