    Thank you! The build.prop file was the culprit for me as well. Replaced it and the update worked like a charm :)

    Glad it helped. I am positive this is what is giving alot of people a headache. I made a copy of my unmodified .219 build.prop in case i have issues with updates in the future.
    On a side note i noticed that the new one is .3kb larger than the old one. I will have to compare the 2 at some point and see what was changed. This was definitely an odd error for updating as i have modified my build.prop on both a d2g and bionic and never encountered this before.

    Sadly for me the build.prop (which I assume is the one in /System/build.prop) is identical to the stock one.

    No dice.. still working on it.

    When installing the update, after the phone reboots and the little droid guy unpacking your update appears- if you push the power button + volume down/up it'll give an echo of what's going on, and you'll see where the update stops. Mine was stopping at a blur app.

    Finally.. wow what a pain. But thank you myfishbear for pointing me to the fastboot ROMs.

    I downloaded those and RSD and went through the process. Took about an hour.

    Seriously shouldn't have been that hard.

    Links for those that need them:

    RSDLite 5.7
    Eternity Project Droid 4 Fastboot Files

    The How To Video helped as I'd never done it before. That ain't me.. :)

    slacker radio.apk missing

    Unfortunately, being a little over zealous to remove bloatware/crapware, I deleted Slacker Radio, so the OTA upgrade is failing.

    Here is the error I'm seeing during the upgrade:
    Code:
    Verifying current system...
    assert failed: apply_patch_check("/system/app/SlackerRadio.apk", "ee1f4b2d6958d622ce87d3f79d041a0abe0f3e21", "2d6b5132806853c96c77ead372644d3183ebd933")
    E:Error in /cache/blur_Version.6.13.219.XT894.Verizon.en.US.zip
    (Status 7)
    Installation Aborted.
    
    I tried installing the app from the store, but the check sums failed.
    where can I download the proper version of this app (and any other app in the stock imagine that I'll need)

    Thank you.

    1. Remove safe system (if you have it)
    2. Unroot
    3. Backup all important data
    4. Install ICS official update via Fastboot.

    No, Factory Reset only wipes out user configured data and installed apps. Since normal users can't touch the /system partition, Factory Reset does nothing to that. There is no "backup" of the phones software to fix changes made by a user who has Super User access by rooting the phone.
