    Anyone get this pushed yet?

    2 questions for anyone that has/does:

    1) Does OTA Rootkeeper allow you to keep root? (any special tips like save root/unroot/reroot after or just keep root)

    2) Did you unfreeze apps prior (or do you not have to)?

    After the nightmares with the ota pushes to my Incredible, I hope I DON'T ever get it, hope only ICS pushes and even then hope it's after they get the bugs out. Out of 3 different pushes, all 3 did more harm than good. The first limited my uploads to 5mb, the second sent a broken version of gingerbread, the third made my camera flash no longer in sync with the camera and took over a dozen failed attempts to finally install.

    Update just finished installing, 52.5MB, 10min (3G only in my area). My skin got changed to default, but everything else appears intact. Hmm, Google Books also decided to sync a couple of books from November...
    Software version 2.01.605.11 now running.

    The update did successfully install. Software Version: 2.01.605.11 is listed in the Status window. That's the version number in the PDF attached to my last post.

    But if I go to About Phone in settings and go to software information that version of the software is not installed.Additionally, the pdf from Verizon mentioned the phone restarting during the update process, and mine never did, at least not on its own. I restarted it several times in an effort to get the update to start installing, but it never did.I watched the firmware download, got a message that said the update would start (unfortunately I didn't really study the message) and then nothing.

    So for any who installed, rooted? Did you have a replacement recovery?

    Still rooted after?

    I wonder if my problem may have been caused by using the CleanTool script?

    Can you elaborate on that? I am also using the yahoo app because of issues with the native app.

    I just clicked on software update and followed the prompts and it updated mine within just a few minutes. When it came back on there was a popup box that said "Go Launcher is no longer your default app" or something like that and told me how to change it back. So, the phone looks the same as it did before now. I saw that it mentioned improved call quality. I already had perfect call quality so I guess this is just the cherry on top?

    I was able to finally get the update by first doing a factory reset.

    Good! That was going to be my next suggestion. My phone is "not" rooted, so I had no problems. The easiest way to tell if the update took is to just look for the "fifth" battery bar. Originally, the phone only had four.
