    Just got the update 384 megs. I was not a soak tester. It popped up at 3 am last night. I tried 3 attempts but it will not install. I am rooted and had some apps frozed (none are deleted). I unfroze the apps and rebooted. I then redownloaded the update but it will still not install. Only thing different than stock now is that the phone is rooted. I am wondering if it will not install the update becuase it is rooted. Anyone else having issues with the update???

    Have you tried the voodoo root keeper? Sometimes it doesn't seem to work for me, but it's worth a shot. Other than that I do believe you need to be unrooted for a proper install.

    Turn your phone off and then back on then try it again. If it still doesn't work you need to contact Verizon and let them know

    You need to remove the root and try again

    My Maxx is rooted and have not received the update, but in preparation I've unfroze everything and temporarily unrooted with Voodoo root keeper. This is how I've handled all previous updates on my Maxx and Bionic and so far, (knock on wood) have not had a single issue. I do not flash roms and keep both my phones stock android.

    We'll see if this continues to work for the ICS update.

    i'm having the exact same issue. i had the same problem with the minor update a few months back and unfreezing, etc., resolved the issue. no workie this time. does anyone have any suggestions?

    p.s. - i've also temp unrooted with voodoo rootkeeper but that doesnt seem to make a difference.

    You'll want to unroot and try again.

    FIXED IT... it has nothing to do with root or frozen apps. I had safestrap recovery installed. once i removed it everything went though fine. It will only install with the standard recovery software not when u have safestrap of clockworld on phone

    ok, i've unrooted, re-rooted, restored about a hundred times and when i restore system settings the update is available again.

    i used root explorer to copy the update to my sd card and booted into recovery and performed the update from the sd card. during the update it failed but this time it told me why. it informed me that the stock SWYPE.APK was missing.

    i installed the latest and greatest swype a while back which required i either delete or rename the original files. i could have sworn that i renamed which i did on my droid x but i cannot find the renamed files.

    so, my failure to update is due to swype - does anyone know how i can get the stock swype back onto my phone?
