Default Psych!?

Well, that didn't fly. It reported new, downloaded, then didn't give option to continue properly.

My bad. Never had that happen before.

Hehe... understood. I plug the thing in every day or so. That was the first time the updater told me there was new software. Kies later said it had the latest. Can't explain, and I have no problems deleting (i.e. "it didn't happen").

I scanned for large files created/modified today, found this (which looks far too old by date in filename): SCH-I535_VZW_1_20130627174016_uxh23opkwp.zip.enc2. No idea why.

Go back to your homes. There's nothing to see here. <ahem>

Hmm. The one thing I sorely miss is the Samsung HDR mode... that'd tempt me back to the stock ROM - assuming they ever actually update it.

Let's be careful here: what we have here are unsubstantiated reports from people speaking / chatting with VZW personnel holding positions within VZW that are normally not privy to software rollout dates. I don't want to be a Debbie downer, but I would not bet my paycheck that this info is completely reliable.

DONATE TO ME
So...Maybe I missed something. Why can't we port the Sprint 4.3 OTA to our phone? Same hardware, no?

Well regardless of what he said, I think we can all agree it will probably rollout sometime in December or early January. Although personally, I'm hoping for sometime in December.

I'm confused, did they begin rolling it out today, or was it a false alarm?

Correct, no
Days of open internet are almost over as the biggies look for more revenue streaming from your wallet..Soon the internet will be a shell of its current self. With the government wanting their taxes and the big ISPs planning to charge extra for access to specific content (like facebook) and throttle your speed.
