    Make sure to download the .607 update zip from any of various sources, and get the easy sbf boot CD..

    Steps as I took them:
    TiBu all my apps/system data/everything (just in case)
    CWM did a full nandroid backup (again, just in case)
    SBF using the linux boot cd method to 2.4.330
    power down phone, do NOT let it boot into the OS. (this step is critical for getting these steps to work correctly)
    put the update.zip (4.5.607) on the SD card
    power up into stock recovery
    applied update without wiping anything or factory reset
    let the process finish, rebooted phone
    went to settings, system, check for updates
    downloaded the update file
    update went through successfully

    All my apps, data, etc. were still in place, all I had to do was re-root, add the bootstrapper back, and reflash the CRT/pixel fix.

    Not saying this is an ideal way to do things, but I have no problems. The phone still had every setting, and still smooth as butter. No restoring backups, or TiBuing my apps back... I am happy.
    Got to the point of using the linux cd to flash, get in bootloader and all and then the cd requires a login to proceed. Enter does nothing. Did you encounter and what did you do?

    Let it sit a few minutes, still 61%.
    Hooked into the wifi here and waited about 10 min and it was still at 61%.

    Sooooo I said eff it and rebooted my phone.
    When I turned it back on I went to get the OTA again it said I was already downloading my update.... but nothing was downloading!
    So I downloaded the full 104 mb update.zip and installed it.
    Everything is great except System Update still says there is an update being downloaded.

    How can I get that to stop? I'm worried when there is an update down the road I will not be able to get it because it thinks it's downloading already or something.
    I have a feeling I'll need to revert to stock and reinstall GB... which is not a big deal just a huge PITA.

    Anyone have a solution for this?
    It's getting annoying now, I keep getting messages that say 'download failed'

    To solve it have you been downloading on 3G or wifi. 3G can be ridiculous sometimes. your best bet is to be close to your wifi router and just let it download if you havnt done that already. if you are really willing just try and download it from a different location say like 20 minutes away just to see if it isnt the tower in your area.


    youve gotta restore to stock if youve done anything to modify the such as clockworkmod recovery. thats just for installing trouble just because itll work better on your freshly stocked phone.

    if all else fails just restore to stock and see if that fixes it.

    Well I think the problem is that I have GB installed already. Like I originally posted, since the DL stuck at 61% (and that was after 15 min both on 3G and wifi) I had to reboot my phone (didn't have an option to cancel the OTA DL). After that I tried OTA again and it kept saying there was an update DLing... but nothing was DLing.

    It's been three days or so now, so I highly doubt it wouldn't have finished by now (I'm on wifi when at work and at home, so that's at least 50% of those 3+ days).

    Figured reverting to stock would likely fix it, I think it's something stuck in the phone memory now. Will reverting to stock take me back to Froyo?
    If so, not a big deal as I still have the manual GB update file.

    If you go to Settings>About Phone it will tell you the OS version. If it says Android version is 2.3.3 then yes, you are running GB. System version tells you which version of that Android release, probably begins 4.5.608 (for gingerbread) of 2.4.330 (if it's froyo)

    Reverting back to stock with an SBF will return you to Froyo, and then you should be able to install GB. A factory reset probably won't be enough, depending on exactly what is making the phone want to download.

    Oh yeah I already know I'm definitely on GB, it's just that stupid System Update trying to download what I already have haha.

    I'll look into a factory reset sometime soon, and if that doesn't work I'll figure out how to SBF it (still haven't looked into any of that yet).
    Eventually I'll root with the D3 trick, but that's not till I get this straightened out lol

    Thanks

    I am currently on the leaked Gingerbread version before the initial OTA release. It works pretty well for the most part but its time to get back to a stock rom now that GB is released. Should I wipe anything in recovery before or after I go back to froyo and then update OTA? Thanks
