Well this Official release is Official no more! Apparently VZW has discovered a bug in the OS and has removed it from its servers. There is no word as of yet if and when we may be seeing this re-released or a new version. Tour owners, we still have the leaked version if you are interested in loading this OS.
Actually, with the Tour having just come out in July; and 5.0 being on the horizon; this is sort of a ridiculous move on VZWs part, IMHO. It took them so many months to give Storm users something better than 184.108.40.206; yet the 9630 RELEASES with a decent OS and here they are, 2 months later, releasing another official update.
Given the fact that RIM is saying all devices getting 5.0 should have it by the end of the year, it's CRAZY for Verizon to spend time and money releasing another 4.7.1.x official. I only hope it isn't a sign that VZW doesn't plan on releasing a 5.0 official according to RIMs planned schedule.
