    Default new OTA help

    I have the new OTA from TMobile I want to apply but it keeps telling me that packages dont match and updates fail. What am I doing wrong and how to I apply the update? It's for a friend who is rooted but couldn't care less about root so he doesn't mind if he loses root.

    When he rooted, did he change the Recovery to CWM or something else. The OTA will fail if it does not have the Stock Recovery on the phone. He should unroot and go back to Stock Recovery.

    Get the update here:

    First flash the Odin Official via Odin (duh) - this is essential because it rewrites partitions
    Then reinstall CWM (via odin)
    Finally flash the Stock Deodexed + Root via CWM

    I know this is an old thread, but I'd rather add this question. If I'm rooted but still using the stock recovery and rom, can I do OTA's?

    As long as you have not removed any of the bloat files. Yes.
