Didn't get it. But its still great to see that its here. Also is there a reason why they just can't OTA to everyone.

If you are rooted, and are running anything else other than stock, you will not get any notifications.....

I have not received a notification since the last Nov-2010 OTA....since I have been running all kinds of ROMS....including 2.3.4

GB is old news man ;)
