    Ok, rooted and had changed a few things such as the notification bar and a few other minor changes. Nothing frozen or anything. I used voodoo to temp undo root, anything else I need to do?

    You need to be on stock .902. without any modifications.

    I also could use some guidance. My stock .902 is clean, but I am rooted and have an alpha ICS4Bionic on the other Safestrap image. I seem to recall applying the update last time, and it nuked Safestrap recovery but it did apply the update. Won't this be the same?

    Mine failed too. I used SuperOneClick to root, so, after the update failed, I unfroze everything, unrooted and still the update progress bar goes about a third of the way and then the phone reboots and says "SOFTWARE UPDATE FAILED".

    I have a stock .902 installed, not sure what I'm missing.

    Mine also failed. Temp unroot with Voodoo, and on 902. I am not sure now, but believe it was OTA.
    On unsafe side with Safestrap.

    Update failed for me also , rooted but stock. The phone downloads the update, powers down and restarts. Then starts to install the update , about a 1/3 into installing it I get the triangle with an "!" mark , it then reboots and tells me the update failed ?
    Whats the fix?

    I just did the update on my gf's phone.. It's rooted, but otherwise 100% stock .902.

    Update worked like a charm AND it still has root. I was suprised. I did do the "forever root" method a few updates ago, so I guess it still kept it rooted through this update.

    Finally got my phone up to date, was nerve racking but got it. First was on 902 with some mods so I decided to go back to stock 902. Then I couldn't root because of an adb failure. Tried numerous times but ended up using another computer which worked. I did find out though that motofail works to give you root while on 905. I rooted on stock 902 but forgot to use vodoo to temp unroot, updated to 905 and lost root. So I tried motofail and it worked on 905.
