so, i'm running stock Gingerbread (rooted), with an unlocked bootloader and with Amon Ra Recovery flashed.
I got an OTA prompt about the ICS "prep" firmware update. This downloaded and appeared to install just fine. Then I got the actual ICS OTA update download prompt. The download failed the first time (probably network connectivity issues), so I re-ran the "check for update", it prompted me, I clicked ok, then it rebooted into recovery. I'm not sure why. I rebooted the phone and now it just sits at the initial "HTC white screen". the ICS update didn't even look like it had downloaded fully, so I can't imagine it was an install failure. I dunno. i'm a little confused at this point. Doing a factory reset from the stock recovery screen, takes me to the RA recovery, where I choose the factory reset/wipe all option. it finishes but nothing changes. I neglected to do a nand backup since i'm a little new to custom revoceries. I'm not sure where to go from here.
optimally, I'd like to get back to stock GB, rooted, so I can recover apps and sys settings via titanium backup and upgrade to ICS w/ OTA updates, but whatever will get me back up will work too.
thanks in advance......so sad without a working phone
