    Stupidly kept root enabled and tried to flash the new update. Rebooted and stuck in a boot loop. Bleh, what a pain.

    What do you think of trying this process, but with the D4 update zip? http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...ricked-after-reverting-jelly-bean-update.html

    Being rooted shouldn't be a problem when installing an OTA, you just simply lose it afterwards. If you applied the OTA successfully from the stock recovery system and you're in a bootloop, I would recommend performing a factory reset. It doesn't sound like you're too far down the rabbit hole yet.

    Already done two factory resets and wiped the cache a few times as well. I'm going to try loading a different update zip as soon as I get the chance in the off chance that the download wasn't successful over FTP.

    FWIW Recovery said it was loaded successfully.

    Huh. Yeah, if it installed successfully through the stock system and you've done some resets that would be the next best step. Verizon says the update is 356MB, I downloaded the one off of MyFishBear's server and it's 355.somethingMB

    I grabbed it from jsnweitzel's link. I'm not currently able to grab the md5 of the file on my phone.

    If a reflash doesn't work, what would you suggest next? Just waiting out the fastboot files?

    I guess so. You can't go back to ICS anymore, so if you can't get it to boot then you're going to have to wait for fastboot files.

    Bleh. Good thing I have another D4, I just wanted to make this stupid broken one JB.

    Thanks for the help :)

    edit: What's the typical wait for the fastboot files after an OTA hits?

    I'm tempted to say weeks-months. Definitely not a speedy process

    Tons of links in the OP for the zip if you want to install it manually. Otherwise, just wait for update to be pushed.

    Anybody's guess......the D3 took a year (or more) from its last update to the fastboot files for that update to show up....

    It could be weeks, months or many months....

    Does factory wipe take out the contents of the internal SD card also?

    No. Factory resets only erase user data on the phone. Apps, text messages, system settings, etc. Things saved to the SD card are not touched.

    DocWalt: how far in the boot process do you get? Red M only? Boot logo?

    Red M pops up and disappears as normal, then it just sits at a black screen forever. I kept it on the charger and then unscrewed the battery terminals to keep it from going flat.

    Hopefully that's enough to support charging. Right now all you can do is apply updates and perform factory resets. I don't know what to tell you, wipe cache, data, everything. There's not much you can do at this point.

    It's weird that Doc is getting bootloops. My only suggestion is to keep applying the update, maybe one of his attempts will stick.

    I know people want to avoid sbf so they can save their data, but I prefer SBFing so there are absolutely no problems. I was able to sbf, flash the update, and root in about 45 minutes. I remember similar problems going from GB to ICS and people always ended up SBFing after going through all the trouble of finding the problem.

    Yes, I kept root with OTA Rootkeeper. All was good, TB worked for example, and several other root apps. But when I replaced FoxFi with Wifi Tether for Root, it didn't work, and it said I wasn't rooted. I also downloaded a root checker that said the device wasn't properly rooted. I had this before on some soak test (D2G, one of the GB upgrades) that existing root apps stay root but new ones cannot get it.

    After two tries with Razr Blade, I got properly rooted!
