    Ok I have 98.72.8 right now running Jelly Haters ROM and Safestrap 3.11. I downloaded the OTA 98.72.16 and when it went to install my phone would reboot and show Android laying on its side with red triangle and exclamation mark in it. I went into SS and wiped cache and dalvik. My phone quit rebooting thank goodness!! How do I upgrade to the 98.72.16?

    It was failing. After I downloaded it and hit install, my phone rebooted and the Android was on its side with a red triangle in its stomach. It would set at that screen for 2 minutes, then reboot again going to SS screen and then thru droid screens to jelly beans coming out of tha Android eye and I could use my phone for about 2 mins and then it would reboot to Android with red triangle. I finally went into SS and cleared cache and dalvik and rebooted. It's like it shutdown the OTA. I wanna kno how I can get tha OTA? What I need to do?

    I had the same issue. The jelly haters ROM is made to be on the .8 build. If you are still on jelly haters and try to upgrade to .16 it will not work. You have to be on the stock ROM slot.

    You will need to use Matt's utility 1.82 to revert back to stock .211 then go to system update in the settings or use Matt's utility to install jelly bean

    It should. You can also go to Verizons website and be able to download the update directly, or use the utility to flash it over. There are a few ways to do it.

    I'm also wondering if I want to use foxfi or another program to tether do I need to unfreeze Smart Actions. I've also noticed on Jelly Haters ROM that Verizon Mobile hotspot and stock USB tether has been removed. If I revert back to ICS .211 and get tha OTA update to 98.72.16 will this fix this. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance

    smart actions has nothing to do with tethering.
    if you revert back to stock, the hotspot and tethering features will be back on your phone, yes.

    I was wondering about that..when I get to a PC I'm reverting back so I can get tha update. Tha Jelly Haters ROM runs pretty good but i cant tether using usb. I want tha OTA update. I use my phone to tether my PC here. I'd do it here but there's no internet except dailup

    You can not go back to .211. Your best bet is to use the utility and install .16.
