    Last night my ota for gingerbread became available but after the install process it says update failed on both attempts. I am rooted but no other mods so far. Anyone know why this is happening

    Clear your cache first, then try again if you haven't bootstrapped.

    No, ota should automatically remove root. I managed to flash the unrooted leak while rooted, just had to clear cache after removing bootstrap.

    Did you ever remove/rename bloat, with a script,with TB, renaming via a root explorer etc?

    While there are obvious exceptions (e.g. using root to install Titanium Backup but not actually doing anything with it), if you ever did something that needed root, there is a chance that you changed something in the system, that will prevent OTA working.

    If you're bootstrapped, just sbf but instead of wiping data, just wipe cache. As for the update failing, wipe your cache. Factory data reset might be necessary, but I doubt that.

    Guys, repush is in about half an hour. Get your phones cleaned up now if you haven't already.

    I'm not sure how exactly you managed to do it.

    z4root replaces /system/bin/logwrapper and the OTA checks that file's SHA checksum.

    Bootstrap will prevent update from installing. Missing skype will cause same issue. Simply SBF and you will be fine.
