Look, instead of rushing to take an OTA to get the latest software.. think for a moment.
We do no know if the TMO D851 boot loader will stay unlocked in future updates. OTA's can update not only software..
but the boot stack as well.. enabling features to block downgrades.. close exploits.. and all sorts of fun stuff.

so.. instead of taking an OTA.. wait for the files to get posted so we can look at things first.. possibly only updating /system, /boot, modem (maybe tz/rpm)
without updating the rest of the boot stack. ya... do that.

Here's the thing you have been a member for years you should know the rules by now (they are the same for EVERY phone). If you know the rules and post in the proper places this wouldn't happen. Some may be nice about pointing out your mistake others not so much. In the end you asked for it by posting this here so you won't find to much sympathy.
ADB Only (Windows)
ADB Only (Linux) <-- Plus instructions

Absolutely not true. At almost 6 million members can you imagine the chaos that would insue with no posting guidelines? A free for all of post where you want, what you want etc? Now I will say name calling is not appropriate either but honestly, and not that this makes it right but if you spend enough time on these forums you tend to get frustrated in repeating the basic rules that you agree to when you join and, at times, perhaps that it's expressed in a reply.

Basically 2 wrongs do not make a right, in the same instance not following the rules never makes a right. Simple enough, post where you are supposed too.
All fear, all pain, all hurt, all grief, all lies, must bow to Jesus' name.

Ya.. I see that too. I don't like bugging the moderators too much. I wish posters would take some time to understand the rules...

you can receive it. trying to install it will cause problems. that is what they mean by "cant take an ota"

Who are you replying to? Nobody wants to take an ota, that's what his post is about.
