    Try the ICS Only tool in my signature. The original creators of the tool haven't been updating it. So I wrote some revisions and posted for everyone.

    Alright new question: what does the "fastboot" option in the Droid 4 Utility in the OP do? Would that allow me to fastboot my device?

    Can you forgive a newbie question.....I want to run this utility as I have been getting constant errors with the ICS update because I uninstalled some bloatware. But what will this do to my Droid 4? Will I be able to get future updates? Will I still have my installed apps?
    Thanks

    Its my understanding that the ota ICS update verifies several things during installation that can error out the process like you've been experiencing. I've read those things include modifying system components like your notification icons, still having the device rooted, or uninstalling bloatware like you mentioned doing. This is a good example of why unwanted apps should be frozen instead of uninstalled. Get the apps back that you uninstalled, and assuming your un-rooted and haven't done anything else you should be good to go.

    Zalan,
    Thank you for all the information.
    My Droid 4 currently is rooted, I reinstalled all the apps that I uninstalled, and I am still getting an error during the ICS update with the /system/app/VCAST.apk (i have made sure the file permissions are correct).
    So at this point I am considering using the GB utility. I would just like to know what it will do to my phone.
    Thanks

    You can just use rsd lite and the ICS fastboot. If you installed a system app you can't just reinstall. Try copying the apk directly to the system folder. You may get some force close warnings (which might require a data wipe). Then you can try installing the ics update.

    jsnweitzel,
    I had restored my uninstalled apps from titanium backup. I didnt seem to have the VCAST.apk file so I did just copy in the file as you suggested (I made sure the file permissions were correct) I unrooted, and then tried the ICS update again and I still get an error on /system/app/VCAST.apk.
    I am still considering the utility but there are no links for the mac version that work.
    What is RSD lite? And how do I do the ICS fasboot from GB?
    Thanks

    Download the ICS fastboot file from here: http://sbf.droid-developers.org/cdma...37_1FF.xml.zip

    RSD is a program used by moto to flash stock software download it here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/76950573/RSDLite5.7.msi

    Extract and install. Put your phone in fastboot mode, connected with a usb cable and then just run rsd. Select the fastboot file you downloaded.. Be sure you at 60% or better battery.
