    The OTA update will fail if you modified your stock ROM. I'm not sure what it looks for specifically but if you froze, uninstalled, or modified any of the parts that it verifies, the update will fail. Your best bet is to do what I did.

    Go to the stock ROM.

    1) Download the JB OTA and save it to your external sd card.
    2) Uninstall Safestrap Recovery (within the app itself) and then uninstall Safestrap.
    3) Download Voodoo OTA Rootkeeper, temp unroot (assuming you were rooted; if not, root, then temp unroot).
    4) Fastboot and use SBF using RSDLite and the ICS217 SBF file (or GB if you're still on that).
    5) Fastboot and install the JB OTA zip file from your sd card.
    You should now be on JB OTA!
    6) Download Voodoo OTA Rootkeeper again, re-root.
    7) Install Superuser/SuperSU (if it's not installed), BusyBox, and Safestrap if desired.
    8) Have fun with new ROMs.

    Keep in mind that only ROMs with the JB kernel or kexec kernel will work. You cannot revert to any ICS kernel ROM.

    Before step 2 he has to go into the safestrap app and uninstall recovery, then he can uninstall safestrap.

    Thank you. That's what I meant by "within the app" but I didn't make it clear. :)

    That link takes me to OTA version Blur_Version.6.16.217.XT894.Verizon.en.US.zip which is ICS so why is it listed under the JBOTA directory? :blink:

    Verizon names their update packages for the version that you are upgrading from. That's why it has the name of the ICS version that its intended to upgrade you from. Kinda weird, but, true.

    Reflashed with stock ics and then did the update. Rooted with razr blade. Feels slightly sleeker and responsive than ics. A couple minor issues are now gone too. Seems like the device gsm is totally unlocked now.. I could be wrong.

    Thanks! It's been so long since the Droid 4 got an update OTA that I've forgotten a lot.

    Yeah same. Nothing a little Google wouldn't fix. Still had the apps and drivers installed on my PC too. Wasn't sure where to start, but a good f it let's do this worked in my favour lol

    The way they name those packages is a little asinine IMO, lol. I went through the same jitters going from Gingerbread to ICS.

    Next issue is that Voodoo Root Keeper didn't work after installing the stock OTA file and now it doesn't seem that there's anyway to get root back... at least not until someone releases an exploit. :frown:

    RAZR Blade utility can root you. I did the same thing.
