    I had a rooted stock Photon Q LTE and I went to update to jelly bean. When I go to do so, it boots into CWM and asks if I want to install an unerified ZIP. I do so and get "assert failed" error.

    I found this thread http://forums.androidcentral.com/opt...rt-failed.html

    That recommends opening /META-INF/com/google/android/updater-script
    And deleting the first line of text.

    How do I go about finding and opening this file to delete the text?

    Well, I found the update, copied it, and followed the directions in the above thread about deleting the "assert" part, but unfortunately that did not work. I think I need to try to figure out how to restore to stock, unrooted.

    I was having the exact same problem but I solved it this way.
    I flashed the recovery.img that I got from here: https://www.box.com/s/owfhujolsj4bz0odmx27
    If you rooted your phone it means you know how to flash with fastboot like:
    You need to enter the following command lines in the Command Prompt:
    > fastboot devices - this will show the serial number of your device. If it is the correct one, get to the next step.
    Install the recovery file using the command below:
    > fastboot flash recovery recovery.img - this will push the custom recovery to your device.

    Then download voodoo OTA RootKeeper and protect root and temp unroot. From here https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...9vdGtlZXBlciJd
    Or here

    I got this tip from XDA at Jelly Bean SOAK TEST Over! Official Rollout Begins Soon... - Page 15 - xda-developers

    I hope this helps. BTW how and where did you find the update file cuz i couldn't?

    I attempted to apply this fix in order to download the OTA updates. The custom recovery installed correctly and everything booted up fine. The update also made more progress than previously but now when my Q restarts the install gets about a quarter of the way then fails. I don't get any error message, it just boots up and says the update failed. Any idea why this might be happening? My phone is unrooted already, but I tried this using OTA RootKeeper and again without using it, with the same results. I searched through that forum but couldn't find anything either.

    Sprint just released Jellybean 4.1.2 for Photon Q this morning. Sorry I know I have been trying to get this OS for some time and it has finally been released.
