    5.9.901 and checking for updates

    Like others I did a manual update to 5.9.901. Today I tried to check for updates (no reason, just tried) and got the "Unable to check for updates at this time" message. This is the first time I checked since I installed .901.

    Normally that only occures for me when I have no data, but when I do it says it's up to date. Not this time, in fact, the "Unable to check" message came up immediately, It didn't even try to check.

    On a hunch, I powered down and removed the sim card. Then I powered back up without the card. Finally I powered down, replaced the card and powered up. This time I got the "Up To Date" message.

    Did anyone else have that happen to them?

    I have been getting the unable to check message for two days now myself. Have done the sim card trick multiple times, as most times I have to to get any signal back after leaving 4G, and still the same thing. At least up until about ten minutes ago when I started catching up with things here on the boards. I'm sure it hasn't changed though.

    I would just be patient because I'm sure that when someone gets the .902 update we will find it in the forums and be able to do a manual update at that time.

    True, but if the ability to check for updates was compromised by .901, then this is what I did. I didn't expect to see .902, but I did expect to see the "Phone is up to date" message.

    The only time (prior to when I installed .901) was went I had no data. I was on solid 4G when I checked, plus it said I was "Up to Date" immediately after I removed the sim card.

    What I'm basically saying that manually installing .901 may cause a problem with checking for updates and wondered if it happened to others.

    Yeah I have wondered that myself I was also curious about if any one has actually received the update and if so is it worth updating to because the Change Log does not seem to be attractive to me,personal opinion of course.

    I usually get that same error when checking over the data network, but get the Up to Date message over WiFi. Got the same with 5.5.893 and 5.5.886, though so it's not related to .901. I eventually just installed 5.5.893 and .901 via SD card / Stock Recovery. Some have reported that a factory reset will clear the error when checking for updates.

    What we need is an app that continuously checks to see if there is an update, and when there is it will set off a siren. Of course you'll need to leave it plugged in....
