03/2013 System Update Available?

Any one know the details (i510.FP8 I think)? I'm rooted (i510.06 V.FP5) so I have no plans to do the update.

I haven't heard a thing, but then again... I changed phones back in November to a Nexus and now my wife changed from her Charge late last week.

We had a good run with the Charge, our first Android phones... but, it had some quirks that never got straightened out since VZW abandoned us just a short while after getting them.

For any one who is Rooted/rommed, it is not advised to take OTA updates. You can, however, disable that annoying pop-up.

If you don't have a file system browser with root privileges, download one. Root Explorer is a popular choice. I use Root Browser Lite (it's free and works fine).

Follow these instructions here, but instead of changing the line to "FP1" change it to "FP8" instead.
