    Just confirmed through friend @ verizon that it has been released for desktop manager only, OTA either after 6pm eastern or tomorrow. He is upgrading as we speak...

    Same for me, both via desktop manager and web upgrade tool.

    Also FWIW, the upgrade from 4.7 to 5.0 wasn't handled via OTA. Not sure if it will be the same for 5.0 to 6.0.

    According to the VZW PDF it said OTA will be availble for Bolds running 5.0.0.1006

    It says release 1644, and .975 is release 1600. Does this mean, to do it OTA, we need to update to release 1644, then to 6.0? At that rate, why wouldn't you just do a desktop manager upgrade?

    Because you don't have a computer...

    OTA updates are so incredibly slow and can be unreliable, I don't think anyone should use the OTA method unless they need to.

    I'm starting to think the OP's friend downloaded and installed the leak to their computer though, and then just wasn't thinking when they launched DM. If this was available we would be hearing all about this, even if it was only available through DM.

    I don't know why anyone does an OTA anyway, they take longer to complete, and have been known to fail. But yes, that's what it says.

    +1, I've been checking SmithMicro and it's still at 975 there. VZW typically let's updates roll out at 6pm.

    OK, i have the facts...He works for Verizon and they received the downloads for .431 earlier than the "public launch". It will be 100% launching today and as stated above most likey around 6PM hopefully sooner. HE DID NOT INSTALL A LEAKED VERSION.

    He received an update through Desktop Manager early because he works for Verizon? Is this some special Verizon computer or something?

    I hope you're right though, would sure save me some time updating friends phones.

    Btw, the difference between a 431 leak and an official 431 OS is that Verizon approved it. Other than that they are EXACTLY the same. So really your friend did install a leak because DM or the Verizon BlackBerry software page doesn't show the updated OS 6 yet.

    If you're right, then later today I'll be busy downloading

    He did install the leaked version, since it was leaked from Verizon. 6PM is typically when VZW rolls out updates.

    Rides, sounds like the OP's friend has the same exe that's posted in the 431 exe thread.

    He received it from Verizon, and he had found out yesterday at a corporate conference that today is the day. If you click on that verizon pdf above, the pictures on pdf show .431 as the OS...I have been waiting forever with all of you guys and I really don't want to get hopes up for nothing but this is the most concrete s#!t ive heard so far. just keep those fingers crossed and more positivety than negativety!
