it's ~20MB file updating your kernel from FP1 to FP5.

if your phone is rooted, then the OTA update will NOT work.  otherwise, I would advise on taking it in to the VZW store and see if they can "push" the update through.

another option would be to force it via the recovery method.  make sure you have a file called "update.zip" on the root directory of your sdcard.  power off the phone, and when it is completely off, press and volume up + home button + power button.  release only the power button when you see the Samsung logo.  then release the other buttons when you see another screen.

navigate down to "apply update from SDCARD", then select your "update.zip" file again.  then reboot.

I know it may seem like a long time to complete a software or operating system update bhigs! Were you able to complete the update? The process itself usually takes only a few minutes; however, it can take as long as a couple of hours. Please let us know if you are experiencing any difficulties.
