I got a message on my phone this morning that a new update was available, I said "OK" but it wound up going to ClockWork recovery mode.

So I then rebooted and unrooted my phone but now when I check for updates it says "No Firmware"! Ugh I can't believe I missed it! Is there anyway to force the update?

Is this the ICS update? I know it's supposed to come June 11, but maybe they were able to release it early???

Thanks for any help!

If you got an update notification, it is almost certainly ics. Companies usually do a limited release as a beta before the official release, you are probably part of the limited release (usually called a soak test). It should repush itself to you eventually. If you are already back on a stock recovery, you could try to boot into it and pick apply update.zip. It is unlikely that the zip is still there, but it is worth a shot.

Before unrooting I checked internal storage as well as my SD card and didn't see any new files anywhere. Is there a specific location to check?

When I boot to recovery it asks me for a location of the file.

It usually deletes itself after the first attempt. If you still have a backup, I would try a factory reset. I got pushed an update early before and had the same thing happen, and a factory reset fixed it. No promises though.

I received this same update and it prompted me to restart without even downloading anything. My phone is rooted and it flashed clockwork mod. Once I rebooted nothing happened. I see that dmservice is running, but should I unroot and see if they'll attempt to send the update again or is it possible for me to force the update?

WhiteShadow,

Don't bother, I tried everything and I never got another chance at the update from this morning. You and I both missed out probably because we were rooted.

The official launch is scheduled for Monday so you may as well get un-rooted and back to stock now in preparation for next week.
