    OTA update on Rezound

    OK so now the firmware update is downloading and installing every day again.

    I reboot every day before bed so I have a fresh os the next day.

    The download begins after said reboot.

    I am rooted but I haven't uninstalled or frozen anything as far as I remember.

    Ideas?

    Update.
    This one is different.
    It prompted me then rebooted into recovery.
    It then tried to install something that failed.
    I got the error
    E error in
    /cache/fumo/OTAPkg/zip
    (status 7)
    Installation aborted.

    I then have to manually reboot.

    I did install Amon Ra recovery as part of the root process.

    Any idea what's wrong or how to fix it?

    Thanks.

    First, the daily reboot probably isn't necessary and it also tells the OS to try to update again. I'd say deny the OTA and don't reboot it you can help it. As best as I remember nobody ever figured out how to stop the OTA other than using a ROM.

    Did you know: You can upgrade your Rezound to ICS without rooting?

    Fun Rezound Fact: The antennas for the Rezound are in the battery cover.

    Don't forget to backup your flash player install before they remove it from the Android Market.

    I use Titanium Backup to freeze the "Updater" app.
    On my older Droid-X this was the way to avoid all OTA updates on a Droid X.

    I have not (yet) received any notices of any OTAs on my HTC Rezound.

    I am currently on 2.01.605.11 2.3.4 which came installed on the phone when I received it from Verizon.

    Regards,
    Howard

    That's the January OTA.

    Well,

    One way is to download from Scott the latest stock ROM - the RUU exe file.
    Stock ROMS - Downloads - Scott's ROMS

    Oops, Scott doesn't have the latest RUU as an exe file.
    It is two zip files (the kernel is a separate zip file).

    You'd definitely go back to factory defaults.

    Personally, I've never done it.

    I bet Mr. Smith has a better idea.

    Doesn't wiping and reinstalling from the Amon Ra recovery put the Rezound back to factory specs?
    It seems like it does.

    Nope. You can actually pull recovery.img from an RUU zip and flash it over AmonRa. This will give you back stock recovery. Problem being that it has to match your current firmware. So if you're on stock GB, then you should be able to get it from Scottsroms.com . Once you do this it should let you complete the OTA if you want. I don't remember if it lets you do this unlocked or if you need to relock... Either way, you have this path, or go down the ROM'ing rabbit hole.

    Hey, thank you, Sir.

    Speaking of the ROMing rabbit hole

    I finally learned and installed custom ROMs on my D1 and like it fine.
    I'm hesitant to do that with the Rezound because it's so new, though certainly it will be outdated soon if not already.

    Do we know yet if custom ICS ROMs are as good as the Verizon/Google version will be?
    I've heard that installing a custom ROM will void my warranty.
    Have I done that already by rooting my phone?

    Thanks
