    Another bionic owner with failed OTA.. contacted verizon help email that I was told to go through...with out giving me a way to resolve the issue they simply told me we have been seeing this issue with people who have rooted their phones or installed 3rd party apps.... I have done neither of these on this device. I did a factory reset several times and probably the 12-15 times I downloaded the updated it would fail each time... with no help from them, I decided to follow your guys suggestions and installed the .246 fxz and it went off without a hitch.. Only question is I havent seen 4g pop up since the install. Is there something I failed to do properly?
    When I go to mobile network settings "network mode is ghosted but it says preffered mode LTE/CDMA and also under strength it doesnt list a 4g strength.... any insight?
    Thanks for help.

    Current Phone Model:
    Droid Turbo
    4G wont pop up unless you are geting a 4G signal.
    The setting is correct & cant be changed in the system settings.

    This is a catch all excuse for them "we have been seeing this issue with people who have rooted their phones or installed 3rd party apps"

    I did the FXZ of .246 on top of a rooted .905 today and it worked great, 4G and all. Hope you figure yours out soon.
