16JAN19 - New Pathfinder update for Battery Controller.

This might be interesting or nothing.
Apparently, they have been failing when flashing an update to the BECM (Battery controller). It had been failing due to incorrect handshaking by Pathfinder.
Pathfinder is the JLR software for flashing their cars. They just fixed the BECM issue so battery controllers can accept a new flash.

This could be for the jump to 100kW+ charging. Or it could be for some other fix that requires a reflash. Or it could just be for flashing a new BECM replacement part.

Stay tuned...

Jaguar i-Pace FE Photon Red 20" wheels, "Leaper"
Two Chevrolet Volts in service
24.2 kW x 480v 3ph solar array self-installed.

Any idea if this update is OTA or not?

No idea. I'd love it if it were OTA, but I'm not holding my breath. Pathfinder is used at the dealer, and the update was just announced today.
There was no mention of a new BECM flash, but I don't think TOPIx lists them.

Just want to offer big props to McRat, Chewy (UK forum) and many many others for making these civil and productive forums. I'm still in the hunt (as the Koreans can't ship Plan B, etc., etc.). Continued best to all in enjoying their cars.
