12/15 update - for those devices where the update has started but did not complete successfully, there will be a fix
available soon. The target is next week, but nothing 'official yet'. I don't have information on whether
it will be a new OTA push or available only via the Service Centers, but will post an update as soon
as I learn more.

How about wifi constantly searching even when connected?
How about weak radios?
How about slow data speeds?
How about excessive sound when recording video?
How about GPS updating its cache faster to get a lock?
Nice! I just picked up this phone a few days ago and the LOS issue was my only concern about getting it. Since I had read there was a fix on the way I decided to get it anyway. Glad the update is here and hopefully it solves everyone's issues.
There really should be a method to grab this update instantly for devices. Many users have suffered from LOS too long to wait until the servers push the update. Unlike HTC phones, we can't "check for updates", we are at the whim of the Sprint Selective Servers.
There are some issues that were not noted in the official "Enhancements/Fixes" list that are being addressed in this maintenance release such as a GPS issue. So it's possible some of the other items you mentioned may be addressed as well.
Even when manually checking for updates, it will not find any unless you are already selected by Sprint.
Even when Google release OTA's for the developer phones(G1/N1/NS), it is not a one shot deal, it is always in waves.
well, if that worked for you, then you have been chosen by the Sprint Selective Servers. Cause it ain't working over here.
So it seems you don't have to wait for the "whim of the Sprint Selective Servers"
It isn't an update from the "firmware" section. It's an update from the "Update Android" section....which you can't ping the servers at Sprint like you can with HTC phones.
actually you can check for updates. menu settings about phone system updates firmware updates
HTC phones is the same concept, it won't download it unless your carrier/HTC/google has made it available to your handset.
On my G1 and Nexus one it was the same thing, Google sent an OTA and I had to wait until I either got it or was able to download it.
Maybe you were lucky with your HTC device and got updates fairly quickly?
