    The 4.1.2 update will download but it will not complete the install

    I get the updating droid screen
    Then I get the droid on its back with the red triangle (recovery)
    It reboots and says the update has failed
    I've retried it 3 times all with the same result. NEED HELP

    Did you use something like Titanium Backup to freeze apps? If so you need to unfreeze them (defrost them) for the update to install. Unfreeze apps, temporarily unroot, power off your phone then power back on, check for updates. Once you have installed the update then you can restore root and then freeze the apps you had frozen before.

    I read somewhere, that you should be on build number 9.8.XX_41. If you're running a leak like I am (leaked build #9.8.1Q_39, others stated 37, etc) then it won't load. I also read that you may need to revert back to ICS, reroot and run the update to JB and then this new one. As much as I'd like to see the improvements, I don't want to waste 2 hours of my life running through all of that. Maybe someone will come out with an easier method. I also read that once you take this update, you can't go back to ICS.

    Keeps failing for me too.. I'm on the X-Mas leak, rooted and have deleted/disabled apps.. but I restored/installed and unfroze all of them. Then used VooDoo RootKeep to unroot and try to install.. Still no luck. Hoping I don't have to FDR. I just gave up for now. It was getting on my nerves.
