Resolving errors that occured while upgrading Bionic to ICS
I got the Official ICS update today, which meant I had work to do if I wanted to keep root & my data.
I just wanted to document what I went through so that others could resolve the same issues. I could have just flashed back to stock, but didn't want to have to deal with losing data (also, I was at work, couldn't install rsd there, and couldn't wait to see the ICS goodness)
Bionic, running 905
I've rooted, forever rooted, bionic bootstrapped & voodobacked up
I've deleted some bloat, and frozen some bloat.
First thing, of course I temp unrooted via voodo & defrosted my frozen apps
Errors in order they occured assert failed on music.apk
I keep backups of my 'stock' /system/app folder on my sdcard. I just copied the music.apk from that backup to /system/app & adjusted permissions to: rw-r--r--
assert failed on /system/bin/logwrapper
This was due to bootstrapper
followed these instructions:
1. Uninstall the bootstrap app
2. Go into root explorer to system/bin
3. In top right corner tap r/w
4. Delete the file called hijack
5. Delete logwrapper
6. Rename logwrapper.bin to just logwrapper
7. Reboot and it should be gone.
assert failed on /system/bin/mount_ext.sh
wish I could recall the link that helped me, but can't seem to find it now.
Basically removed the 3 chmod lines that I had added to the bottom & made sure ONLY ONE blank line apears below last "fi" line
assert failed on /tmp/bp.img
No idea on the cause here.
Just followed the steps from post #175 here and it worked. Makes no sense to me.
I removed the .905 file from external SD card. I downloaded it again. Powered off the phone. Removed the battery and re-seated the SD card. Turned on the phone and re-downloaded the ,905 file. Put it on sd-card ext and tried again and it worked!
Got successfull install, and an initial generic error message when it booted.
That went away and things seem to be working fine.

I should have mentioned that.
I attempted the install by manually entering recovery.
Hold both volume buttons and power on
Apply update either from cache or sdcard - (external)
Initially I was applying from cache, but would have to redownload. So I copied from cache to sdcard and applied it from there via recovery
