Just got a notiication of this update. Installed in a minute or so. Looks like a new baseband? In any case, it was a 1.9MB file.Android version is 4.0.4. Looks like the build date is 7/4 on the kernel.

My wifes phone got it yesterday morning and while I was asleep (work graveyard) she decided to to check mine. It didn't install correctly but it did break my root. LOL

Sad day...the Google search bar has been hamstrung due to Apple shenanigans. This is one reason why I will not recommend the iPhone to people. Particularly since Palm definitely has prior art on this patent.

There are easy ways to fix it. You have to be rooted for it to stick. Then you can download the old universal search box apk replace it in your /system/app folder by renaming the old one to .bak and making the new one the same name the old one was. Reboot and boom your are back in action with Universal Search.

 

My problem is that there is a rumor that the update cripples 3G and WiFi for some users giving them horrible data speeds, so I have not taken the OTA update at this point, and I plan not to. I just wish someone has a fix to stop the "update notification" pop-up.

I believe you can if you try to let it update and let it fail, then pull out the battery.

I don't feel like rooting at this point (maybe a 100% functional JB ROM will push me over the edge there). As for 3G speeds, I tethered yesterday and got 1000/600 (so alls well there). WiFi seems to be just as snappy as ever, though I haven't done a speedtest on WiFi in awhile.

 

EDIT: I just speedtested on WiFi. With a "very strong" signal and 72 Mbps link speed, I hit 30+ Mbps down and 20+ Mbps up (gotta love PowerBoost). These speeds are comparable to what I've gotten pre-update.

    • I see it as more of an economic calculation.  Basically go after the areas where they have the best odds of retaining or attracting customers versus their MVNO arrangements. The quicker they can switch back and forth between 5g and MVNOs the finer grained this decision zone can be.  Field results will beat theory.  In Sprint days this was up to 15 minutes in theory. In practice AT&T could be quite sticky.  I remember driving by 3 Sprint sites while still stuck on AT&T roaming. Dish will need to do better to thrive. Both their MVNO arrangements reportedly now cost them about $1.50 per GB. With volume that may fall to $1.
    • Man I wish I could get on their beta right now.  Looks like I'll have to wait until Dec or so.  The report is not surprising really.  Largely only have employees roaming around running tests and what not.  I am sure lots of testing is needed to iron out bugs, fix things.  Though a lot of it might be denser network.  Only so much you can do and money is spread out very thin when you have such a large target to hit. 
    • Found some AT&T c band live in Cincinnati today. Not too bad considering I was driving past on the interstate at speed.  
    • Hey Mike, a couple other things you might be able to post for S22Ultra owners, In particular, these deal with the *#0011# menu. The following are true for even the June update:   1. Does not show the second n41 carrier (when it is connected) on LTE+NSA. It shows "NR_NumCC:2" but no additional Carrier. It simply states "CA-Not Config 0 0"This works fine on the S21.  2. There is a line that states "Code Review Required" 3. There is a line that states "Unknown 0"    
    • The see Dish as the Beta network for a while. Basically once they have secured their licenses and have inexpensive phones that utilize all their bands I hope to see them reduce the edge space of their network or improve the transfer performance so customers have more of an invisible handoff experience. This will likely be late 2023.
