    The update keeps failing for me. I've moved the apps back, I've un-rooted, I've re-rooted, it just will not install.

    So you put all your apps back and it still didn't work?
    If it didnt work for you it probably wont for me. I wonder whats causing it to fail?

    I had already put all of the apps back and it failed. However, I believe the problem was the StickyNoteWidget files were named incorrectly.
    I fixed them, ran the update again, and it worked.

    I'm updated and rooted again.

    Just put any apps you've moved or removed back where they came from, download and install the update.

    I had read if the preinstalled apps were not there the update would fail. That was one app that wasn't there because the name was incorrect.

    I'm assuming that's what it was anyway, because this time I left it rooted when I did the update, the only thing that I changed was that filename.
