The File is 700+MB which is the same size as most ROM's as well as the full version of the Firmware which leads me to believe it is the full version that will be sent OTA. Once I get confirmation from the G+ people, I'm installing it. If I wait for it to roll out in "waves" it could be another few months and I'm just not that patient. (Plus, I have a copy of the .tot file in case I need to "unbrick" my phone).
I understand how exciting this new update is. I'm anxiously waiting myself. You can be assured this will be announced at www.sprint.com/newsroom once the roll out begins.
You mentioned that Spark isn't working right. I would be happy to look into this for you. Please send your zip code and the 2 closest cross streets to your location. This will help us view the network in your area.

Earth to SprintCare, LTE/spark has issues with triband phones. For some people it makes them lose data connectivity. It has nothing to do with tower overload or maintenance or wether or not a certain tower has 4G or just 3G.
Here is how to disable spark on your phone if you're suddenly not able to get LTE
Dial ##data#, go into LTE then press edit (you'll need your MSL which you can get by dialing ##443336772# then your MSL will appear at the bottom of your screen) then disable bands 26 and 41 and set their priority to 0. Afterwards your LTE will be back to normal. You can always change it back to normal so there's no risk of messing up your device.
i highly recommend anyone that does this should also take a screen shot of what it was originally set to so you know for sure what to change it back to when it comes to that time..
