Took the truck in for it fighting me during regen with my foot on the brake.
Service manager tried to tell me that this was normal. I printed off the tsb and brought it to him. After 10 minutes of me berating him for lying to my face, he walked off and out came the shop foreman. We talked a bit, and he agreed it was abnormal. We discussed the fact there was supposed to be a flash out to fix this. Told me, that he would pull my pcm calibration and see if i had the most recent. I had 8C3A12A650JK and his computer showed that just today they recieved and updated one, 8U7A12A65OCB. He also updated my TCM and my instrument cluster. We'll see if i have any more issues, but i know alot of guys have been curious about a new flash coming out.

How did you know you needed a flash?
my truck was trying to fight my brakes during a regen...
however, the in town mileage seems to have dropped, but we'll wait for some more miles before i pass judgement

When you say fighting you how much do you mean. When I bought my truck last summer it ran away with me until I shut down the engine. I figured it was the cruise control. Finally ford changed the wiring loom and the PCM and the problem went away.

in a regen, it went into high idle, and would not come down when i applied the brake. so, go in you driveway, push the brake and bring the rpm's to about 1200...

dont know, the last i heard was friday, fords time period for an offer expired, and ford told my lawyer(the rep she is working with) that the decision has been moved above his level.
but, i am not modding the truck at this point, any farther.
