Help with Virgin Mobile LG Optimus F3 OTA Update
****Found the fix, I just needed to unbrick the phone***
Alright, so basically I rooted my phone when I got it last year and deleted a bunch of the preinstalled apps that I did not want. (For more space) Well last week I get this update notification for a new OTA update. I try to update, it gets to about 30%, then the android guy falls over with the red sign, and the phone reboots normally and I get the update notification again. I tried multiple ways to get this notification to go away, such as the apps that disable the update service. They aren't permanent and I would have to reapply every reboot, so I got tired of that real quick. Then I noticed that I was not receiving incoming calls all the time, so I figured maybe this OTA update was required and would fix that. I decided to go to backup and restore and restore my phone to factory default. Well after doing this I found out some of the apps I removed... still aren't there.. And I feel like a dumbass. Like for instance I had no keyboard.. I had to download an .apk one just to login to google play again. After messing around fixing my settings back to usual I see the update pop up again. So I try to install it and the same thing happens... It gets to about 30%, then falls over with the red sign and fails. Im basically back to where I was before. Is there anyway I can salvage this? Or should I just buy a new phone? I think I messed it up by removing those unused apps.. I did not know it was permanent =/ Guess I learned the hard way.
