Great. Now I would actually prefer doing a clean install of this new build. Is there going to be downloadable version that I can load via USB?

Congrats Sprint! Only took you roughly 3 months past when you said it would originally be available by (Originally stated to be available by end of 2010).  Better late than never?  Of course, you are only rolling it out in batches and my phone doesn't show an update available yet...so we shall see.

I finally get enough balls to root my phone and reinstall all my apps, now I have to flash back to stock in order to get the update.  Oh well, I'm just happy it's finally here.

The instructions do not work. If I have to wait on a link something to be sent to me please remove the instructions on how to update my software. I assume that notification will tell me. This is very frustrating.

Very cool to hear it's finally here.  On a personal note, I woke this morning with this CLEARLY on my mind & what do I do?  I forget my phone on the night stand plugged into the charger lol

I'll see what happens when I get home later tonight.

Have fun with the update to those who received it & Thank You Sprint for releasing this & Thank You Joel for your tips on the credit.  It was much appreciated.

Has anyone actually gotten the OTA?  Is it on hold or something?  Day Two or Rollout and no one I know with a Transform has gotten it yet.

LENSUTTON2,  I updated the install instructions yesterday so hopefully they make more sense now.

The update won't wipe your phone, but it's always good to do a backup prior to an upgrade. 

I'm hearing that the OTA updates are being ramped up very slowly, so hang in there and let us know when you've received it.
