    I am at a loss.... I got the phone new from Verizon (called on my previous phone 611 and ordered it). I've not done a thing to it, and the update continues to fail. My guess is the bastards sent me a used rooted phone as if it were new and now I can't even update. How the heck does that side-load thing work? I don't want to wait a few more months for the next update that supposedly might work? This is ridiculous.. I've done the factory reset, rebooted, hard button reset, etc.. nothing works. Continue to fail every time. Any ideas on how to get this stupid update would be appreciated.

    So then they released a buggy OTA update that doesn't update on some phones? What else could cause the update not to work? I've had the phone a bit over a month, brand new from the box and this update isn't working.

    U have to run 3Droot option 1.

    Then u should be back to stock.

    Then u should be able to install the update.

    It works for me. Do your homework. I do not wanna be response will for a bricked phone.....

    I lost root after the update and found a work around for root. I went to the above mentioned website http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...70-r3l3as3droot-43v3r-root-bionic-v2-1-a.html and followed -Unbrick Bionic with OneClick Restore “R3l3As3Droot and 43V3R Root” 10/28/11.......

    performed options 1,5, and 7

    Built my phone back with titanium backup that I had

    rebooted and Verizon pushed me the update a second time or i might have checked for updates and it came in

    I downloaded and installed .893 ( it took forever to restart and install but eventually worked.

    did you have the leaked update installed before you used the tool from dhacker? I don't want to reflash my phone for nothing. I have a failure on MTD:boot. That's not a good sign because I can't reflash that!

    well, it may not be rooted but that doesn't mean it's a new phone either. Check the kernel and baseband version. That seems to be a critical component. It's what is keeping me from updating.

    No leaked update. I was rooted and lost root after the update.

    I did this before the exploit fix came out.
