    This worked for other devices in the past go to Settings>Applications>Storage Use then scroll to "Google Services Framework" click it then clear data then reboot I've read it may take a few tries, let me know if it worked for you.

    If you happen to get the OTA update, message "tommyjoesanders" and let him know so he can gather information for the rest of us who can't get ICS yet. Thank you.

    If you're still rooted go to /cache/ and the update should be there. Copy it to your sd. You need a root file explorer. Search in the market.

    Only a nandroid backup, and we can't accomplish that yet. Also, as I stressed many times in this forum, OTA's take from 2hours to 2weeks. You have to wait it out. Unrooting isn't going to make it come any faster..

    Do you think if i do the unbrick method on my girls phone back to zvd...that she will get the ics update notification again? Or will she be pushed back ti the end of the line?

    Yep. ESN is crucial to Google. You wont even get the update OTA like that. OTA Updates still come whether your phone is activated or not, but when it comes to the wrong esn, or no esn, everything is a no-go.
