    Alexis, if you still have not found a solution try Voodoo Rootkeeper from the market. It's very straight forward and pretty much requires you to click one or two buttons to unroot. Then apply the update, then come back to the tool to restore root. It was more than easy.

    Yea, it doesn't have the PC mode directly but I found out how to boot into that mode from the bootloader; a little more cumbersome but it works.

    If you go this route, make sure your root binaries are up-to-date (in the superuser app). If you try to restore an outdated su binary, you're likely to have to re-flash your system to be able to re-root (at least in my case, that was the only way I could find to get root back, after trying many other things).

    Mine is almost done downloading as we speak. I hope it works out ok. My friend has it on his razr and there's some things I didnt like, like the fact that you cant long touch to add app or widgets and such anymore. Mine is finished it says verifying update, wish me luck!

    Install went well, everything seems to be working well so far and it's kind of cool, going to take some getting used to though!

    When you start the update process it loads that screen with the android character and the yellow progress bar, as soon as that screen shows up press both vol up and vol down at the same time and it will switch to verbose mode where it will show each step of the install process. When it fails it will typically display a directory and apk file name. If you're rooted I recommend getting titanium backup, making a complete backup of your system. Use the D4 utility to flash the latest GB update which should return everything to stock and then download the ICS update and let it install. Once installed sign in with your gmail account and download titanium backup and then restore from the back. BTW make sure when you use titanum backup that you set it to backup to the external sdcard otherwise it will default to the internal one and you may lose the backup after the flash. If you have any other questions with this you can PM me. I had to reset my GB to stock with a fastboot file in order to get ICS to install from there I was able to restore all my apps and settings with titanium backup which saved me a lot of time.

    Is anyone else having issues with 3G and airplane mode? I switched my phone to airplane mode the other day and when I switched it back the 3G wouldn't come back on. I had to reboot the phone to get it to work. Also when I reboot my phone goes in to AP fastboot mode instead of booting normally. What's that about? It's ironic but I think I'd have less issues with this phone if it had an unlocked bootloader. With my Droid 1 I had a custom ROM that worked 10 times better than stock. Tired of these stale, commercial, uninspired, motoblur infested installations that seem to be riddled with bugs. After the OTA push of the latest GB on my Droid 4 I had to reflash it myself because the OTA pushed version was corrupted. So far I'm not minding ICS, it's pretty sweet but there are issues and I'm not sure if they're specific to ICS or just because Motorola and Verizon put there dirty fingers all over ICS before passing it along.


    BTW: I have the OTA file which can be reinstalled via the bootloader recovery mode. If anyone wants it for development purposes or whatever let me know. I used it in recovery mode to see if it would fix the the phone booting into AP fastboot mode but it didn't my phone still boots into that mode for some reason. If anyone know how to fix that please share.

    Is there a way to save the ICS update to SD-ext?

    I have been trying to get the update on my droid 4 for the past 2 days. Once it starts updating, it always aborts on Youtube.apk. I was rooted, unrooted with droid 4 utility, same thing. Did factory setting, same thing. And I am tired of spending 20+ minutes trying to download the update.

    I am at my wits end, but I tried changing the youtube.apk and still nothing.

    It's downloaded to your cache. Copy it to your internal, the external to save. You can also get it in the roms section. Posted there about three weeks ago. Have to be rooted to get to the cache.
