Once we have the full filename we can find the download link so others can download the file directly from google servers without waiting.

Is there somewhere specifically we should be looking for this? I assume it downloads it to the SD card but does it stick it in a temp folder or directly in the root?

when the update is downloaded it should go to /cache so you can copy it from there with any root file explorer.

Seems like a nothingburger of an update. Fixed a single force close issue and some sprint connection optimizer software? Wow, thanks sprint.

Had to **** in my cheerios, eh?

Unfortunately Sprint has said point blank there won't be an official ICS for it thanks to Touchwiz. The phone can run ICS just fine (IE the very snappy CM9b1 I'm running right now) but the ICS+Touchwiz combo is too heavy for it, according to them, and they aren't willing to put out an update to ICS without Touchwiz.

So if anyone did anything to your cereal.. it's them. (It irritates me more than a little bit too)

It is Samsung that said that and it is due to their BML partition. Thrte is no room for the ICS OS in there. That is why our DEVs put it on MTD. Samsung won't attempt a partition and file system change for all the Epic owners via OTA...that is tech support suicide.

So true about the hellish nightmare that would be sprint support if they did attempt to roll out an OTA MTD switch.. god my head hurts just thinking about it.. it's sad that Samsung has to be different and not use MTD like several other manufacturers.

Ok,

I have a phone with the update notification. I loaded astro and went to /Cache and it was empty.

Also I did a search from the root for all .zip files and didn't find anything.

Does anyone know if I am doing something wrong?

Thanks

Make sure you accept the notification to "Download" the update. Right after its done, it will again notify you if you would like to "Install" the update. DECLINE it, and try checking the cache again.

You have to download the update first, but when it asks you to install it, don't. Then check.
