    I have tried both. Reinstalled stock went fine and when it asked for the update and I touch Install it reboots and gets stuck in the CWM-based Recovery again and fails to install. Any idea what to do next?

    cwm is the issue, i didnt realize you had that on. option 2 in matts utility will put stock recovery back.

    That did the trick. Thanks for the help! I totally forgot about reflashing stock recovery.

    Question for you. Do you have the install-recovery.sh file in your /system/etc directory on your phone when doing the OTA update? I have a RAZR HD, unlocked, rooted, used Matt's utility do flash stock recovery, confirmed that is active and TWRP is no longer there, and the OTA fails still. I have defrosted all apps, and used Voodoo to temp unroot prior to downloading and installing the OTA. It reboots into recovery (green android with blue symbol in gut), then quickly reboots back to normal. Once everything is rebooted, a popup says the update failed and I confirm the OS and radio are old versions still. Wondering if the install-recovery.sh file missing is causing an issue. Can't figure out what else could be the issue.

    Any thoughts on other steps needed to make the OTA take? Or should I look to try and flash the OTA zip file from another forum thread from the stock recovery???

    I have already done the process on my son's Razr M and was able to get it to work. Thanks.

    if you do it through recovery from the other thread, it will tell you what is causing it to fail if you watch close as it tries to update.

    OK I figured it out. I did the manual install method and noticed it failed on build.prop file. I remember playing with that file in attempt to remove the menu bar to get full screen access so knew right away the issue. Of course, I had a backup of the original build.prop (as we all should do whenever playing with any original files) so just swapped those out and the manual install went fine.... until what appeared to be last step which was set-permissions. However, upon reboot I was updated except for the radio. I then just went over to KaChaw's other to install just the radio zip and now I am fully updated.

    To review for others here are steps I took:

    - I am on stock ROM, rooted, Safestrap, RAZR HD
    - Unlocked bootloader
    - Never had any other ROMs in slots for SS so uninstalled recovery and uninstalled SS app
    - (optional) I updated logo on boot to get back to stock Red/white M vs. unlocked warning text
    - Used Matt's DROID RAZR Utility to flash stock recovery
    - Defrosted all apps
    - Downloaded OTA, but did not install
    - Using ES File Explorer, I cut and pasted the blur_version.....zip file from /cache to root of my external SD (this was the OTA download)
    - Backed root via Voodoo, temp unrooted, then rebooted into recovery via Quick Boot app (upon dead Andy, hold Vol down and then tap Vol up (while Vol Down is still being pressed) and stock recovery menu appears)
    - Selected install from external SD, found the blur_version.....zip file and selected it
    - It went through install
    - If no errors you may be good here. If there are some fix as best you can.
    - Once rebooted if you find your OS was updated but not the radio then do following....
    - Go to KaChow's other thread: [TOOL] New Radio Flash> VANQUISH_BP_100730.160.64.15P and follow instructions to install radio update.
    - All is well....

    Can you tell me what the current version the MAXX HD should be? I am looking to trade one for my GS3 and want to be sure it is up to date.

    Here is what it should be:

    Before the Update: 9.16.6 = After the Update: 9.78.19

    Before the Update: 9.16.9 = After the Update: 9.20.1


    To clarify there were 2 updates that depended on the System version your phone was, go into Settings> About phone> check System version for the above.

    Also, check the BaseBand in the Settings> About phone> BaseBand the Old Radio ended with: 09P = the New Radio ends with: 15P.

    This is a great thread to read all about the OTA.
