    5.0.0.591 is the official VZW upgrade!
    Everybody, post your upgrade stats here. (time started, any trouble you encounter, time finished, etc.)
    Let the downloading begin! I hope VZW beefed up their OTA servers. LOL

    I am in SLC, UT. Started OTA upgrade @ 8:51pm mountain time.

    STARTED OTA UPGRADE @ 8:51pm / FINISHED @ 10:20pm

    UPDATE:
    It looks like users are reporting not being able to perform the OTA upgrade if you are using a leaked/unofficial OS version.


    UPDATE: A user was running Sprint's OS 5.0 and OTA would not show up for them. But they just finished the DOWNGRADE to 4.7 (Official Verizon) and voila, 5.0.0.591 shows up in the Wireless update. For anyone else waiting for it to show up, I don't know how long you will have to wait with a current 5.0 release. It will be faster to downgrade to 4.7 to upgrade to 5.0 (Weird, huh?)

    BTW, not sure if any of you are familiar with my theme (check my signature) but since I am now using OS5, I have decided to rebuild it from the ground up since I am now using OS5. CHECK IT!

    Did you do OTA through phone or did you use DM? Regardless, which version is it?

    That shouldn't be right. The official should be .608. Right?

    That sucks. I was psyched to upgrade to .608! I guess I'll fire up DM here in a little bit. It's 11PM in this time zone (EST).

    I'm in VA in the EST. And I keep showing "no update available". This is weird?

    Edit: I'm running .484 as well.

    I'm pretty sure the only way it will show up as OTA right nownis if you currently have .61 running.
