If you are a leaker, please follow this tutorial when updating to the OTA. Get us the url to the OTA zip please.

Code:
If you are interested in looking at the process that HTC/Verizon uses for the OTA updates, you can get the URL for the OTA zip the following way:

Run logcat on the pc and accept the update on the phone

$ adb logcat > logcat_accept.txt

This will sit like this (it continues to log output into the output file) until the phone reboots. At that point, the adb logcat job will terminate, and the name of the zip file will be indicated in the logfile in a message similar to:

W/SystemUpdateHelper( 64): !!! REBOOTING TO INSTALL /cache/desirec-ota-104882.7b1e5cca.zip !!!

Then, take the name of the file and paste it on the end of android.clients.google.com/updates/partner, for instance, for the Eris 1.17.605.1 OTA, the complete url is:


https://android.clients.google.com/updates/partner/desirec-ota-104882.7b1e5cca.zip

Im assuming either Linux or MS Command prompt?
Thats where you would enter the code correct?
Point the code to the device, then begin the update as usual?

EX:
$ cd /path/to/phone/
$ adb logcat > logcat-accept.txt

Or am I off here...

I have no update as of yet, but would love to help.

Did you go to your sdk tools dir first? This should be for ANYONE who receives the OTA update.

yeah mine is different. When i put the folder in my harddrive i played around with some of the names and what not.

as far as getting URL goes, i think a rooted user might be able to get it no problem.

If you type adb shell, it will emulate a shell on the phone. Skip that step. Just type
Code:
adb logcat > logcat_accept.txt
and it should start dumping to a file called logcat_accept.txt.
