    Default Re: ICS Update Fails on Stock

    i was unable to install the upgrade. Saw your post about going back to .902, then .905, then ICS. This also worked for me.
    Thank you.

    That file is now available for 246.
    I looked and cannot find it. Can you please link it?

    For those of you who have had the update fail on them, go the link below and follow the instructions to flash the .246 fxz file. After multiple attempts at downloading and installing the file from OTA, I finally gave up and went this direction. I'm now running on ICS and my phone is running smooth as butter!

    Link to flash .246 fxz file:

    Verifying current system...
    file "/system/bin/mount_ext3.sh" doesn't have any of expected sha1 sums; checking cache
    failed to stat "/cache/saved.file": no such file or directory

    E:Error in /cache/
    Blur_Version.5.9.905.XT875.Verizon.en.US.zip
    (Status 7)
    Installation aborted.

    From this I infer that a checksum is being applied to the mount_ext3.sh file and the installation is aborted if the checksum does not match. Coincidentally, that is the file that has a couple of chmod commands added to it to keep root permanent. I don't know if a factory reset will put that file back to its original state. I also don't know if it would be possible to restore root after doing so. I also don't know what other checks may fail if that one succeeds. However, it seems clear that VZW is, at a minimum, attempting to prevent rooted phones from taking the OTA to ICS by failing the installation on phones that have used the forever root method to maintain root through OTA updates.
    I had the same issue with multiples fails. I reverted to the old mount_ext3.sh file and the update went through without an issues. Thanks oldguy1950

    My phone was mostly stock, just rooted and annoying apps renamed. Woke up this morning, and saw it was ready to update. It failed. Then remembered about the apps, renamed them back to stock. Now my phone says there is no update.

    Would you be so kind to provide a copy of your old mount_ext3.sh so I can get my OTA update to work. I am getting the same error. Thanks.
