    Sorry to sound so stupid, but being I'm only rooted and unlocked, can I simply let 4.04 install OTA?
    If you except the push from Verizon it will break root... follow this guide for root users:

    Thanks Wug for all the help.

    As well as some others I am running 4.0.2. stock rom unlocked and rooted. If I accept the OTA and update to 4.04 I assume I will lose root. Will I have to wipe the phone to re-root or is there a simpler process? I like many others are getting the pop-up notification to update from Verizon and are waiting for someone to post a process here where we can do it safely and possibly without loosing data.

    I have backed my phone up with Titanium Backup to (Dropbox) to keep the files off the phone, is it even an issue when updating?

    Thank you so much and I hope these questions can be answered for not just me but for everyone who is getting the OTA message and wanting to know what to do next.

    Thank you very much,

    You need to have stock recovery in order to take the OTA. You can use my latest toolkit to restore it using the "Flash Stock Recovery" button. As long as you are stock, then you can take the OTA. Flash Stock Recovery

    You will loose root, but you can easily re-root it with my toolkit.

    You don't have to wipe if you take the OTA like that. After you update to 4.0.4, make sure to update your model type in my program to reflect that, otherwise the root process wont work.

    When you re-root you can have it reflash CWM: Permanent CWM


    So to be clear.

    Requirements: You are STOCK 4.0.2, with STOCK Recovery. (it doesn't matter if you are rooted or unlocked)

    Instructions:

    Simply take the OTA, then use my program to re-root it. Make sure that you use the 'Change..." button under "Your model type:" to update it to reflect that your are on 4.0.4 IMM76K build. Then my toolkit will have no problem re-rooting it.

    You can root with or without flashing Clockworkmod (your choice):
    Root

    This new version will root it after the OTA update no problem.

    I just took the update today and rooted it with my toolkit. Just make sure you have the correct model type selected in upper right. Use the 'Change...' button to reflect that you are on IMM76K 4.0.4... then root.

    Thanks for all the info, in retrospect what would have happened if I downloaded the OTA without first re-flashing the stock recovery?

    It wouldn't take... you should get an error message. That's if you have ClockworkMod Recovery flashed over the stock recovery. If you were rooted and still had stock recovery... you would get the update but you would lose root.

    People install CWM Recovery over stock because it allows you to do things that stock won't allow... like flashing custom ROMs or making Nandroid Backups.

    I agree with CW. If you want, install the update manually using CWM recovery.

    Is the manual update the same as the OTA one? And are there directions for installing it?

    Yes. 100% the same.

    I just tried flashing the stock recovery and it said it was looking for a file INTF2. Where is this file and where should it be? Also it seemed that it may have worked anyway how can I confirm?

    Update:

    I thought I re-flashed the recovery correct so I downloaded and Installed the OTA. After the install the phone re-booted and when it was done it says I am still on 4.02??? I am very confused and when I checked for updates there were none. Also I still have root access so I cannot figure out what I did wrong.

    Help :-(

    Did a search and couldn't find any solutions to this:

    I'm currently running a backup using Wug's Toolkit. The screen has been showing "com.android.sharedstoragebackup" for about 20 minutes now.

    It doesnt seem to be making any progress, and Wug's toolkit still says "Backing up; please be patient..."

    Any help here?

    EDIT: After posting this, I closed out any folders I had open on my computer, though none of them had the Nexus open, and closed my device manager. I don't beleive this had anything to do with it, but it's moved past sharedstorage backup and rolling now.

    Follow these instructions. You just download a zip and flash it with my toolkit:

    That is ODIN mode. You have to hold down both volume buttons and the power button to get into bootloader mode... you just held the volume down and power button.

    LOVE the automated toolkit... but I am having one problem...
    I ended up switching identical phones doing a back up with +System apps/data and +Shared data. I also backed up the data/media. I then did a restore on an identical device.
    However, several things were missing:
    1. GrooveIP application was plain gone
    2. Settings were missing for the built in mail program
    3. Device face recognition & pattern lock passwords were missing as were my google account passwords.
    4. Record of phone data usage, mobile data limits and data cycle dates (under general Settings)
    5. Settings for Battery Monitor Widget

    So, basically, I am curious where are these settings 'hanging out' that don't let them be backed up properly...

    I would have thought that such a complete backup would image everything. It's a bit of pain to have to go through app by app to see what is missing...
