    Anyone else getting this error when they try to update? I start the firmware update, it starts to download. Then it stops and a popup comes up saying ERROR: SERVER UNAVAILABLE.

    It's really annoying. Been happening all day.

    I had no problem. Finished downloading about 10 minutes ago and is just finishing up the install process now.

    Just hang in there and keep trying. The servers are probably busy, but eventually you'll get the OTA. This used to happen to me with every one of them.

    Yea I got it to work after using about 4gigs of data... Awesome.

    Other than that. The update worked out well. Only problem I had was one of my email accounts wouldnt log in. I had to delete it and put it back in. Works fine now.

    So I'm still kind of wondering what the deal is with this error. I've been trying since Tuesday night to download the ota, but I just keep getting the "server unavailable" error.

    The thing that I don't get is, on Tuesday night I got home and started the update and it was downloading, but I canceled it so I could backup my pictures and contacts. Then I started the download again- and it was working. I went off to dinner, and when I came back it was as if nothing had happened at all. No popup or anything.

    Anyone know why I was able to start the download twice, but now I can't download it again (and I am spamming the **** out of Software Update)?

    EDIT: Also, a while ago I attempted to unroot the phone. I thought it was unrooted- and I'm on the stock rom and stuff- but I booted into recovery and it says s-off at the top. Could this be the problem? And would it cause the update to negatively affect the phone anyways?

    Mine kept happening until I was in a 4g full bars area. Then it finally worked.
