I understood it was already rolling out for other carriers/phones. Are you saying this information is specific for verizon and the 822? And that, with the portico update, it was within the week that the update rolled out after a similar status change?
It's specific to VZW/822.
The status change is based on a page the Nokia setup to display the roll-out of GDR2 across devices and carriers; not related to the portico update.
Reports are it's in the wild now
Update check is taking about 10x as long as it normally does, so either everybody knows or it is actually ready to go.
