Yeah. 949 kb is tinyyyyy. I can't believe Verizon would be this quick about an update Google has been working on for a week and released a day or two ago! But no..... a somewhat major software revision has to take 2 months. I realize the fact that it is only a very, very small update, and it doesn't change any major software/radio stuff... but still. You know what would be cool? If verizon pushed out software updates (i.e 4.0.4, 4.1) clean at first, then follow up with a second update on the radios.

I received an OTA software update with build number IMM76Q. Has anyone else received it?
Did you manage to get the file name for us yet?

If you've already installed it, the easiest way would be to look through the log files in /cache with a text viewer and look for a file name ending in .zip.

Thanks!

As was mentioned, it is probably the disabling of the "local search" feature of the search bar.
Yeah, i know thats what it probably is. Verizon just always puts out a pdf on the support sites of their phones no matter how minuscule the update is. Like one that turned off the initial 4g free tethering last year said something like "enables 4g tethering plans" or something like that. Oh you tricky VZ...

Definitely very weird that VZW wouldn't have updated the support PDFs. They update those things religiously when there's an OTA.

I hope this IMM76Q update isn't another IMM30B where someone accidentally pushes it to a few devices, shuts it off, and it fades into the ether, leaving anyone who applied the update stranded.

Technically, the updates come from Google. Since this update has nothing to do with aspects that would be specific to carrier use they probably didn't involve Verizon in this one.

As far as I'm aware, that's not an option. I believe VZW has to test and approve every single OTA that goes out to a phone on their network, regardless of how small or whether there is anything carrier-specific in it.

Apple is the lone exception to this rule. Verizon lets them do whatever the hell they want with the iPhone and iPad.

I spoke to a verizon tech rep this week---he said there was an update pending and suggested it was more about a radio fix. However, I'd take that with a grain of salt

That's very unfortunate then.
