    I am rooted but have never had troubles with other OTAs. I recently freezed a bunch of apps. I thawed them and still no dice. What could be the problem?

    I know, but I am just worried that i won't be able to install later updates that may have significant changes. And ICS of coarse whenever that arrives.

    Possibly may seem like a stupid question, but did you protect root with Voodoo OTA Rootkeeper and then Temp UnRoot first?

    If you did, there may be an issue with one of the apps you froze where it didn't properly "un-freeze". I am assuming you didn't "delete" any stock apps, right?

    If you can't find the problem, your only option may be to restore to Factory default state. If so, you will want to use the http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-razr-hacks/198379-updated-droid-razr-utility-windows.html to perform the restore to 6.12.173, then re-root, install Voodoo OTA Rootkeeper, protect root, then temp-unroot.

    Good luck! :biggrin:

    I deleted one. It was the Google Play Movies app. I redownloaded it from the market. And yes I did temporarily indoor with voodoo.

    Im having the same issue. It starts to install then stops halfway through then reboots and says install failed. Can anyone give me reasons as to why this is happening. I am rooted, I did not delete any apps. The apps that I had frozen I unfroze.

    The problem us most likely because you delete the google movies app. It is a system file and the update will look for that exact file. When you deleted it, it was removed from your system. Downloading it from the market does not fix the problem because it is now on your phone as a downloaded app and not as a system app which is causing the update to fail.

    Even if you moved the apk to your system files, the update will likely still fail because the stock app that is supposed to be in your system folder is not the same version as the one from the market. You would have to find the original stock app named videos.apk and place that in your system files.

    Otherwise, you will need to reflash the system fresh using rsd lite or Matts utility.

    No, you can update but you're going to have to go back to stock. There are two ways to do that...RSD or use the Razr Utility found in the Hacks Section of this forum. Download, extract and run that utility...it will take your phone back to stock .173 just like you just got it out of the box. Yes, you will loose all your downloaded apps, but you will be able to download and install the update. Then you can replace your 3rd party apps.
