It seems that G1 users in Germany are beginning to see the latest update hit their phones. The update, which is RC9 is reported to be similar to what US based users saw with RC33. As always, for those users who are eagerly anticipating the update and cannot wait any longer, RC9 can be downloaded here (zip download). If you choose to go the manual update route, you can find a good tutorial over on modmyGphone.
Additionally, it was also mentioned that the RC9 firmware update was currently in the testing phase for UK users. As of now there have been a few reports of UK based users receiving the update, but nothing official yet. Unfortunately as of this posting a direct update link for UK users has not been posted.
