    Yeah, for the person you were referencing. When I got the GB update, any of the APK files that I had removed had to be placed back on the phone, or it would keep failing. Luckily someone on here posted the full droid4, and I knew what I had deleted. 'Root' is just admin rights, people tend to think it's more sophisticated than it is...

    Do you have any frozen, or uninstalled with Titanium Backup?

    you may want to see if the ICS droid4 update file is floating around as zip file and load it manually in the maintenance/service mode, it should show u the errors on what stopping it.

    I haven't looked to see if the zip file of the update is out there, I'd have to look around.

    When the update fails, press both the volume up and volume down keys at same time. The last few lines of text tell you what file is causing the update to fail. It will probably either be an APK or ODEX file that is being identified.

    Then, just find the file from one of the droid file dumps on the site here and replace that file on your phone.

    I have 4 files that were not right for some reason.

    So my weekends are so busy I haven't had time to mess with this especially since it kept failing and I'd have to redownload the update. First off I figured out where it stores the update files so I can save a copy on the sdcard which make retrying the update less painful. Second, thanks to daryls61's post regarding viewing the verbose aspect of the installation and seeing where it's failing I'm one step closer to getting this resolved. My guess is that it's the apps I've frozen with Titanium.
