Well wait a minute now, when this firmware first came out, why were people saying that the GPS was still locked? Has something changed on Verizon's side?

And one other thing... Has anyone tried flashing the firmware through Windows Vista or Windows 7? Right now I don't have any XP machines, and I would hate to have to temporairally downgrade one.

Alright, now it miraculously is working for me...but with "Managed by Windows" in My Location settings. I tried that once before, and it didn't work, so I'm at a loss.

I took a dive! WeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeEEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Okay did the upgrade. Not too shabby. It has "WEATHERBUG"!!!! LoL! Which is cool!!! I like the new layout when selecting volume setting, that is nice! The Tool icon on the tool bar allows you to remove widget, that is nice.

It also comes with Windows Live,

Overall system space, i think it took less space.

It also comes with Easy Setting...good step forward on the functionality. Would be nice if Calendar shows appointments.

Well I have successfully flashed my phone through Windows 7. No additional drivers were necessary. The default ones received through Windows Update worked fine. Just uncheck "Allow USB connections" in the Windows Mobile Device Center settings, and then follow the flash procedure.

I then enabled the GPS location setting and installed Google Maps. GPS worked after I configured Google Maps to use COM8/57600.

no this isn't directly from Verizon or Samsung...so DO NOT go there asking for it. But now that it is leaked they might release it soon.

Ok I am a novice and nervous about flashing my ROM had my phone 3 weeks and tweeked it pretty well, my dilemma should I wait for official release or is it worth it to take the dive early. I am pumped about GPS and new widgets never used them out of the box. I guess i'm just wanting someone to tell me it is worth it or no the official will be out this week.

No one knows when this will be released officially. If you are worried about it then don't install it and wait for VZW to release it. The directions are easy to follow though so I doubt you would have trouble.

A seriously bad idea. I think you might want to wait for VZW to release.
