For those who are notoriously impatient, it’s important to stress that the update will be going out in phases. So if you aren’t part of the first phase, don’t worry, be patient. It’s going to arrive “sometime soon” anyway.
The exact build of the global ROM coming your way is 188.8.131.52.OEIMIFA. The update was in beta for a long time, some bugs were encountered and subsequently squished, and now it’s ready to be called Stable.
