@Maxx71. (and the rest of you) Long story short, I can’t, and can’t figure out how to. I’m stumped.

I have never in all my years conducted an OTA update on my device directly. I’ve read about members on other carriers who have done it. Some successful with no issues, but most have issues of incompletion or it taking anywhere from 2-6 hours to complete without the use of their devices. I have also always been under the impression in the past that in order to receive a notification for an update via DM that you had to already have an official OS (with vendor .xml) installed in order to be detected as being on that carrier network to receive that type of upgrade. I’ve never really had an official T-Mo OS on any of my devices over the years (been with T-Mo since 1997) as I immediately upgrade to the latest OS available leaked or otherwise, which T-Mo never usually has. LoL. I’ve only received notifications from within DM if I had installed a new OS locally on my PC, but chose to update at a later time for whatever reason.
With that said, this OS in all practicality is like an on-device OTA update, but from within DM itself. This must be something fairly new, as I don’t have any vendor.xml files resident on my PC to detect that I’m actually on T-Mo. Maybe things have changed over the years and that is no longer needed any longer for a carrier update to be offered. I have no problem throwing the .exe files into DropBox or something, but the problem is that the OS is not resident locally on my PC. Anywhere at all! I checked my shared folder and I have all of my installed OSs there except for this one. The upgrade did not even install a T-Mo vendor.xml file in the AppLoader. It’s as if the update was done totally OTA via the cloud (backup/restore) through the PC. There is actually nothing for me to extract for you guys. I’m kinda stumped!
Even when I go to the T-Mo site for OS downloads it is still showing that old version (as usual) mentioned here prior.
It seems that T-Mo is pushing this out and doesn’t want anyone else to get the actual files.
I am an old school dinosaur AppLoader guy. I don’t use BBSAK and stuff like that. I don’t even know how to, and have no experience with this OTA stuff at all, so maybe you guys can educate me on this, but I can definitely say that the upgrade process DID NOT install anything locally on my PC for me to extract for you. This I can say for sure without a doubt… Apologies.
