Most users know that you can easily update your device software by downloading the OS to a PC and using the Application Loader. With some official OS updates, the option to use the Wireless Update will be under Options > Advanced Options > Wireless Update. When an update is available, a Wireless Update icon will also be pushed to your device homescreen alerting you of the upgrade, and you will be able to download and install the software over the air (OTA) to your device. The process is fairly simple yet can be very time consuming. The first part of the process involves downloading the software to the device. During this download you may continue to use the device. For the second part of the process, you will install the update and will not be able to use the device at all. This part of the installation can take up to 2 hours to complete. I was lucky and it only took me about an hour total from start to finish. If you're looking to upgrade via the Wireless Update feature, take a look at the video above for a look at how it all works.
