    No. Are you trying to install it thru stock recovery?

    Deduct its right. Being rooted won't stop ota from going through. Did you unfreeze all apps (if you use tibu)? Any modification to the system will stop the ota. You may have to flash back to stock then ota 905

    I don't know what you guys are saying, I've never had OTA push right if I did anything to the phone, including rooting it.

    Unroot your device and try to push 905 then.

    Ota will download and install just fine when rooted. You just may lose root. I used ota root keeper to keep root when taking the ota.
    Your call though.

    I have tried root keeper didn't work and I can't find any apps frozen im not sure what is going on so I guess I will just stay with 902 until we get the ics update if it ever comes out

    I don't think the OTA of ICS will push to anyone not on .905 when it comes out, you might be better off using RSD lite to FXZ to .905 so you'll be on the upgrade path. How to Flash 5.9.902 or 5.9.905 with Rsdlite - Android Forums

    Have you done any other modifications to the phone since you rooted?
    Custom recovery?
    Titanium Backup frozen apps?
    Safestrap?

    You will want to try undoing anything you have done before you attempt unroot, since they all require you to have root to undo them. Then try again. If that fails, you will want to back up your stuff and use RSDlite and the new 905 FXZ to get you to the 905 build, then just reroot and restore hour stuff. But if you want the ICS OTA, you will want to stave off any modifications other than just basic root stuff.
    And as stated above, the update will likely be a 905-ics one, so being on 902 still you will be out of luck waiting for the ICS push.
