I updated the fingerprint entry in build.prop from FP1 to FP5 and got only heartbreak and misery... boot loop. Had to ODIN ep4 and then use an update.zip, and then root to get back. Funny since changing ep4 to fp1 worked well to stop the fp1 nag.
Thats odd.. My update of build.prop seemed to stop the problem. I deleted the .zip file out of the cache and I have rebooted with no problem... I just changed the FP1 to FP5 in that one line..No more popups
Yes it is odd. Are you stock FP1 with root? I guess it's possible I fat fingered it but I don't think so. I really wouldn't have thought that one line in the file would cause so much greif. I thought it was just for display and reference purposes (like what the ota compares against to see if you need update).
Which exact line did you edit? I did ro.build.fingerprint , perhaps I as supposed to be ro.build.description
According to a Verizon Tech I spoke with last week regarding my Charge, the FP5 rollout was supposed to fix the dropped signal and garbled sound issues the phone has been having. The update pushed to my phone last night..havent had a chance to look for much difference. One thing I did notice right off, when the phone is starting up, before it finishes media scanning..any icons on the home screen that are saved to SD are faded out. And they aren't available as 'installed' until the SD card is fully scanned. I found that a bit odd.
Dropped signal fix.. gosh.. I have a Nexus , Charge, and Revo.. All of my 4LTE phones drop signal (just bars, no 4 or 3 g indicator) increasingly more in my area for the last 4 months. Ive seen this issue on verizon's forums from the south east to the west coast .
I worded that wrong. Not 'signal' so much as dropped calls. The Charge has always had an issue with the 3G backup when 4G drops out, and with losing your side of the call. I've had two replacement phones due to that issue, where the audio dropped out on my side of the call, but I could hear the person on the other end fine, and all with full bar signal and 4g lit up. That was what this fix was to address, and perhaps the USB/SD card issues since I do see a change there when I restarted.
As for being stuck..I've heard that if you reboot the phone three times in succession that it clears some issues with updates.
I still keep pressing later... just re-rooted the other night and not sure what's going to happen... I'm not too savvy but if anyone in my situation can give me a heads up I'm running 2.3.6 and all I've done is installed su and there is voodoo something that I believe is from a previous root (I did not perform or have a clue) and basically will turn off updates if I'm not gonna either keep my root or be able to restore it. Any ideas?
