    The update still failed. When I tried powering on while holding down X, all I got was the Android by an exclamation point, no menu or option to clear cache.

    It appears I am in the same boat, unable to successfully update.

    Chris215, are you rooted too? I'm wondering if having root doesn't prevent the update from installing, even with the bloatware present.

    I am rooted. I have tried to update while in root and also unrooting first through Root Keeper, still no update. In the past with previous updates I don't recall needing to unroot prior to the update. The update always took root away.

    Looks like Googarola dropped the ball with this update.

    if you altered system files, or stock apps, that can cause update to fail
    or maybe more likely, they are not pushing update to your phone yet, to save bandwith

    The update was pushed to my phone. I have changed my fonts, boot animations & logo. Possibly the failure lies within those changes.

    I would suggest not updating, because of, Rooting and SBFing issues
    if you want to block, rename update apk?, may have to look it up

    if you want update, best bet is to SBF

    edit:stop update

    Ohhhhh... so THIS is why I can't root. Bugger!

    I recently SBF'd using the leaked GB SBF (big thanks for that, made life a lot easier), and was spending the past 30 mins or so wondering why every root tool I downloaded wasn't working. The more you know!

    I hope a new root exploit is found soon...

    EDIT: Apparently there is no exploit as of now, but it is possible to preserve an existing root via an app called RootKeeper (on the market). There's a post about it on the first page of this thread.
    ...glad I didn't get to re-installing all my apps... time to SBF again... bollocks.
