    Uh guys... not to be a debby downer here, but this OTA is having some weird effects on my root. I am running clockwork mod, and stock HTC sense. The OTA rolled through this morning. But it didn't start to instal until I plugged it in to a charger it seems. The the phone powered down. Then it powered up showing the software installation screen. Then the boot screen came on. And that is where it stayed. Taking out the battery will restart the device for about 3 seconds before the request to turn GPS comes on. The minute you see that screen the device powers down and the loop starts up again. I still have clockwork, and it looks like I can go revert to a backup. But I am afraid this won't fix the issue. Any ideas? If I did keep my root, what can I do to disable OTA's so this doesn't happen again?

    *update* went ahead and restored an earlier backup. Everything was up and running fine. I kept root. Then, just out of curiosity, I manually pushed the OTA. (it is OTA .19) ( I was going from .9) The same result occurred with my phone being stuck on the boot screen. If this is happening to you: YOU DONT HAVE TO RESTORE. JUST CLEAR YOUR CACHE IN RECOVERY. My question now is, what can I do to disable all automatic OTA updates from now on? OH... AND WHERE IS MY FULLY FUNCTIONAL ICS FOR THUNDERBOLT!?!

    OTA Update on 5/17/2012

    I don't know what all was in the update but it certainly killed my battery life. I unplug my phone at 5:00 am and when I plug it back in at 10:00 pm I used to have anywhere from 47% to 60% battery left. I am not a heavy user. Now by 8:00 I am down to 14%.

    The OTA worked on my hubbie's stock Thunderbolt. Mine is rooted and when it rebooted, it was soft bricked with the little blue android doo-hickey and yellow triangle. I yanked the battery, rebooted into Revolutionary boot menu, cleared cache, rebooted, had the same problem. I yanked the battery again, rebooted but this time I re-installed the PG05IMG.zip file that I left in the root level of the SD card and after re-installing from zip, everything became operational with no problems. I immediately ran a backup by rebooting again into the boot menu and performing a full backup which took a while, just in case... No problems since.

    And to date, I still haven't found the app to freeze that would prevent the OTA push from automatically attempting to install. How annoying!

    By the way, the Thunderbolt hardware doesn't have sufficient CPU power to run full ICS with the spinning menus. You'll have to upgrade to a phone with more processor power to get ICS with all its known features. If I can locate the link where I read a detailed explanation that this is why we're not seeing full ICS for the Thunderbolt, I'll come back here and post an update. I was bummed when I realized that was the case.

    For those of you experiencing a soft brick when the phone attempts to install the OTA update...there is an old thread in these forums that explains how to stop it from accepting the update. A file has to be deleted or renamed. Can't remember which file it is. But rest assured...the phone will try to install that update several times until you delete that file. It will fail every time. Same thing happened with the last OTA update.

    I don't use the tbolt anymore. I gave it to my girlfriend. Have not really messed around with it since giving it to her. I'll go snag it from her while she's sleeping and see if I can find the file and directory and post it. But a search might be faster. I'm still on first cup of coffee and massive hangover this morning.

    My problem is now fixed until the next OTA push by Verizon. There's a rooted version of the latest push available now. Just load the new zip file into the root directory of your SD card and install it from the Recovery Boot menu. In just a couple minutes, the updated OS is loaded and you'll be up and running without worry about finding your phone's screen stuck on the android symbol with the yellow triangle. I'd post the link if I had it bookmarked but just search for rooted 2.11.605.19 710RD and you'll find several download links for the latest version of the stock rooted ROM.

    Nate, if you can find the link, I'd appreciate the help. I've searched high and low and keep turning up empty handed. Thanks!!
