    After some more reading found the reason I was receiving the error message when attempting to install the OTA was that I removed some of the original apps after I rooted under ME7. So found out that you can flash the new MI1 build by following instructions found at XDA, [GUIDE] No-Wipe Factory Images (Restore from any soft-brick without wiping data) - xda-developers. I successfully followed these instructions this morning now just have to perform the new Root De La Vega instructions to get root back.

    Not really noticing any differences in performance, a few new apps, but was more curious if the new update would turn on AWS support. Doesn't appear to make any difference in my region.

    Good luck!

    thank you! This worked perfectly!! I restored to the ME7 release. I then updated to the new Verizon update.

    I dont know much about this stuff but everything worked great

    How can I remove it if I have already unrooted my device like an idiot...

    Having safestrap seems to be blocking me from installing the latest OTA and also blocking me from rooting my device again. I read something like write protection was enabled? How can i disable it? Again, my phone is not currently rooted, but safestrap is still on it.

    Demo are you currently on Mi1?
    need to make sure current baseband matches Odin file you are trying to flash...otherwise it will fail every time. Easiest way to uninstall safe strap is to open apk that installed with and uninstall recovery. I would also try another odin file just in case something is wrong with current one you are trying to flash
