    Default FP5

    So what are we actually expecting. The notice says it is merely the FP1 but jumbled up in the listing order..?

    I wonder if it's what the courts have them taking away at Apples request while the law suite goes on? Or perhaps just to fix what they broke in FP1.

    I don't know whether to be excited or worried. It says "new UI" which FP1 brought crap and I don't want to get my hopes up.

    I had disabled updating sometime ago on my Charge. How did they get this thing through? I need to remove this update somehow.. Any ideas??

    Thanks

    Update: I edited the build.prop file and changed it to FP5 from EP4. Maybe that will stop the updates / popups for now...

    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.

    Not gonna try that again...

    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

    Sounds like you never did FP1. Everything else for me would be FP1, not EP4. That could be my issue.

    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 .

    Well, mine is stuck in the SAMSUNG Flash on/off mode after the FP5 update self restarted. Now what?

    Default Re: FP5

    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 am currently rooted on stock FP1. I want to go to stock FP5. If I understand correctly, I need to do the following:

    1. First unroot
    2. Take the OTA FP5 update.
    3. Then root

    Correct? I should not take the updated on rooted FP1? Would that mess the phone up?

    Ah so that's what I did wrong. I had to do a restore back to EP4 with ODIN, and am now re-loading and going through the pain of setting everything back up.

    I was able to do the first 2 steps. How do I root again w/ FP5? Is the process different from the ED1 build?

    I'm dying from all the restrictions of this stock phone

    So you were rooted FP1 and did the first two steps w/out unrooting? Are you still rooted?

    I unrooted and went back to stock, did the updates (ending at FP5), and attempted to root again but keep getting hung up during the GingerBreak part. The GingerSnap method doesn't work either.

    Un-Rooting. Now that I'm back working and on FP5, do I re root or live with the crap?

    How do you re-root from FP5 though? Regretting that I did this. Just wanted to get rid of that notification...smh

    ****EDIT***

    I was able to re-root using the instructions from the link below

    Supposedly it's the same as with FP1. I've not tried it yet.

    Has anyone tried this method:

    Download "OTA rootkeeper" from the market to temporary unroot, take the FP5 OTA, the use rootkeeper to restore root.

    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?
