I doubt it...why would they update this if a week or two later they would give us ics...they fixed some problems cause we aren't getting the update anytime soon...they are having problems with ics on certain phones that's why it's taking so long...

No inside source is needed. Tmobile has tweeted that the update will be available via kies on 06/11.

Supposedly, the UVLDE update was an incremental update in preparation for ICS.

Ok, I uninstalled the Play Store with Titanium Backup and re-added it by copying an APK into system/apps and rebooting. All seems to be well now.

The phone definitely feels faster. The chipset driver update seems to have made things a little more responsive. The UVLDE baseband has also improved network latency compared to the Blaze 4G radio I was using before. I'll probably stick with this setup until the official ICS drops.

I hope you're right...but in the last 2 months I've heard 10 release dates that never happened... so we will see

It's from T-Mobile's official Twitter feed, so it's certainly a more reliable source than any other rumor we've heard thus far. It's not just another, "I know someone that works for T-Mobile, and they said...blah blah blah."

chipset driver update? is this something we have to get through kies? The ics roms don't have it?

They updated the Qualcomm chipset drivers in the UVLDE maintenance update. The drivers are baked into the firmware, so the ICS update should have updated drivers as well (although they might not be the same ones).
