    Ok, I've been up and down this thread and others making sure to read and re-read everything before applying the update, but the update failed for me. I tried via the OTA system prompt twice and once via stock recovery. Details below:

    XT926 - Droid Razr HD Maxx. Current system version is 9.16.6 and new version is 9.18.79. I am rooted and bootloader is unlocked (just decided to do that yesterday). I had installed TWRP via Razr HD Recovery Flasher V6 (and manually typed the commands from the .bat file because I'm on a Mac), but I saw that stock recovery was required so I put that back on via the same tool. I also did temp unroot via Voodoo OTA Rootkeeper before applying the update. Both times I tried via the system prompt it failed within 30 seconds (saw "dead" Android for a few seconds and then it reboots). I manually applied the update through recovery (via ADB since I don't have an external SD card) and the error is below:

    assert failed: apply_patch_check("/modem/image/dsps.b01", "62d778c9c131d326314a621c07c83f773d0ae90e", "bf66bb5baa2113e35c766e77015f902b2fce9e1c")

    Now, my guess is that this has something to do with my baseband being a different version (ends in .05 instead .09 like everyone else). I wonder if the last update failed a baseband update but the OS update succeeded and I didn't notice. Thoughts?

    Just to make sure your current System version is 9.18.79 and Baseband end in .05P is correct?

    No, current version is still 9.16.6. Yes, baseband ends in .05P

    (I only mentioned new version is 9.18.79 because I thought there is another update out there)

    Since, you currently have System version 9.16.6 then the OTA that you need is 9.16.6 which will update you to System version 9.18.79. There is a second version which is for System version 9.16.9 that updates to 9.20.1 this is not for your device.

    Try this if you would Download the OTA from Settings> About phone> System updates. Do not install, yet. Go to your Mac and first make sure you have the latest version of Device Manager or get it from here. Next, plug in your device and allow Device Manager to connect with it (this may or may not work) go into your Settings> About phone> System updates and select the Install update while plugged in with Device Manager running. Since, your Bootloader is unlocked do not worry about backing up via RootKeeper OTA as if this installation works it will destroy Root anyhow. I have a method here, that you can use to regain Root after the OTA works.

    In the event that the OTA does go through and the new Radio does not install, click here. GL!

    No dice, still failed, same error (according to /cache/recovery/last_log). I also tried the update through Device Manager but it reports my battery is too low (how is 67% too low for the MAXX? :biggrin:)

    Edit: I'm going to go plug it into the AC, see if I can get an "acceptable" battery charge

    Success...sort of. I got 9.18.79 and baseband 15P finally...but even though I thought I told it not to erase my data, it still did. I thought that applied to the "pseudo" sdcard partition but I guess not. At least my photos and important apps are backed up to Dropbox, but I lost my complete backup and TWRP backups.

    Now of to root I guess...

    Glad to see that it worked, did this go through without any errors by downloading the OTA in the System updates and then applying the update while connected to the Device Manager?

    I would highly recommend spending a few bills and purchasing an SD card strictly to back up important files, afterall this device is not done with OTA's. And if those of us that have an Unlocked Bootloader if we can install the OTA's error free from Device Manager, than that will save a great deal of time and aggravation.

    No, I did the update through Device Manager, the OTA still failed with the same error when connected.


    I've thought about buying an SD card since I had around 18GB of music on there and my TB backups were around 1GB, space was starting to get a little tight. I wanted to see what the new Motorola phones were like (the Ultra Maxx and the new Moto X) but I knew they wouldn't take SD cards. Oh well, if we ever get 4.2+ on the XT926 then I'll be happy. In the meantime, I'll take this accident as an opportunity to start fresh and only install the apps I need.

    I just want to say Thanks, Thanks, Thanks!!! You guys are amazing...

    It took me 2 months to grow a set, but this worked like a champ.

    I was rooted and unlocked (everything else stock).
    Backed up root with OTA Rootkeeper
    Connected phone to laptop as above
    Installed updates
    Restored root with OTA Rootkeeper

    Thanks!
