    I am using a Motorola electrify M (xt901) through US Cellular. Recently, the jellybean update was released and I received a notification on my phone. I tried to install it, but after it downloads and resets the phone, an android robot icon with animated electric lines shows up and the status bar gets to about 1/4 of the way, then the android falls over, dies and a little red triangle is floating from his body.

    I tried a factory reset on my phone and retried it. No luck.

    If my phone is completely powered down, then I hold Power + Volume Up, I get the same dead android with the red triangle.

    I purchased this phone used, bootloader says it's still locked. Any suggestions as to what might be causing this? And how I can get it fixed?

    The phone works with no problems, except the update announcement shows up about every hour and I have to select "not now" It's getting pretty annoying.

    thanks in advance.

    Sounds like you may need to reflash it with the current software... Then try taking the update.. I'm not sure where to find a link for US cellular software.. Perhaps your service rep would?
    Sounds like something is borked
