Well, the good news is that I guess it's not just my phone. I was able to get to 66% downloaded until it stuck. I waited, and it didn't change. I rebooted, and tried to update, but I'm getting "update is downloading". There is no d/l going, though. I did a factory reset and tried to d/l it again. The update shows, and when i click "download", nothing happens. Something is not right.

My wife started the download at the same time as me and she is fully installed, and up and running ICS. this phone has always been shit compared to hers and I am more than tired and done with this.
Yeah i turned on wifi and im suspended at 0%, i knew it was a bad idea to try and do this before i went to bed.

Finally got the notice that the update was available. Tried to download and it got stuck at 0% with the message "Download Suspended. Will Resume Shortly" After about 20 minutes I decided to reboot. Same problem. After about 30 minutes, I decided to reboot again and It downloaded fine. Seemed to install fine, but then got to a spot where it said "Android updating. Updating media database." Got stuck there for about 30 minutes. From what I've read, the more stuff you have on your SD card, the longer this part will take. But other than that, it went pretty good. It seems a little smoother and quicker. Not a ton, but noticeable. Only had ICS for about an hour so far, but I'm liking what I see.

Got my update overnight. Woke up to the "install now" button. Did it, and say the little droid coming out of the box for about 2 min. Then the phone re started and booted up to 2.3.4. Still no ics.

I checked for updates and it found it. So now I am downloading AGAIN. wtf??

for those of you that the update it stuck you might have to wipe cache in stock recovery to clear out the partial update and try again.

1. power off phone
2. hold both volume buttons and then press the power button till the menu appears
3. use volume down button to get to recovery option and press volume up to select
4. when the android with the ! appears press both volume buttons again
5. you are now in stock recovery
6. use volume down to get to wipe cache partition(do not do a wipe/factory data restore unless you want to erase all your own data) and press power button to select
7. select reboot system and hit power button.


If you were getting the update this should prompt it to start again.

My update started pushing last night, and got stalled. I had the "Download Suspended. Will Resume Shortly" message, and one about continuing at wifi off-peak time (I should have written that one down when I saw it).
The problem us that I didn't know I was in the soak test. Yeah, I signed up; but Motorola and Verizon are actually great about keeping the community informed.
I spent an hour turning thing off and uninstalling and rebooting because I though it was a virus or rogue program.
This morning I check here and realized my error.
Thanks to Thom Little, I "non-destructive[ly] re-booted, and the updated started up again.
Full download.
Hit the install now button.
[apparently] updated.
Rebooted.
"Update Failed" ?!?!?!
Now what? Did I get soaked? Or SOAKED? Will it try again? Download again? Or do I initiate it?
I didn't get the "Android updating. Updating media database." that tofizzle got, bu my SD is packed.
I will be away from the computer for the rest of the work day (Buffalo, NY), but advice would still be appreciated. Thanks.

You may need to dlear the cache ... you could try ... downloading OTA now from dfib ... and then try downloading again.

Apparently it only downloads over wifi. I also had to turn off y5 battery saver which manages wifi connections.

Aparantly gsm can be hacked to work on 246 so I'm in.

Got the update today and was wondering how long should it take for "Upgrading Media Database" to finish? I realize if you have a lot of stuff on your phone it will take time, but It has been "Upgrading" for about 2 hours now. Am I stuck?

I can happily confirm that ICS found its way to Texas today. It was not pushed to me. I went to settings and checked for updates, as have have done several times each day since October 19. Low and behold, today is was there. Like many others, I had the suspend problem even on my 50 Mbps wi-fi network. After a couple of re-boots, I finally got the download. It installed without any problem. After another re-boot, the quirks went away. So far, my only regret is that I lost my GPS toggle, the one that directly enabled GPS without sending me to settings.

On the other hand, I now appear to have a solid 4G signal, with no drops so far. Happily, Foxfi runs just fine with ICS. In fact, I am typing this on my Asus Transformer Infinity over a wi-fi hot spot provided by my Bionic. In the middle of a 4-story concrete building, I only get 2 bars on my Bionic, but my Transformer is still seeing 12 Mbps. Not bad at all!

One small problem, I would like to disable or freeze the Verizon Remote Diagnostics spy app, but that option is grayed out. I am stock (unrooted). Any thoughts?

Happy in Dallas!

You get the GPS setting on the Power Widget in ICS. No one at a time option; you get all four options or none.

Default Database updating

I have also received the message about updating the media database. It took several hours, but it did complete and everything has run find since. I highly recommend being patient and let it run its process. It is safer as well to leave the phone plugged in while updating to allow for enough battery to finish the update.

Here is to hoping all works great.

I tried the clear cache thing. It didn't fix it.

I uninstalled the root only Cisco AnyConnect, restarted the phone, and it started downloading. Hmmm....

"Upgrading Media database." for the last hour. Sigh. I've got about 18-20 GB of music. This is probably going to take a while.

They've been teasing us for the better part of a year. What's a few more hours?

Now THAT I didn't know...thanks! I missed the GPS widget.

Also, I use "Tasker" and now it won't/can't turn GPS on and off for me automatically. I FOUND A FIX...I set Smart Actions to do that and it works for me automatically again.

I've been using Tasker as well. Several of my routines easily translated to Smart Actions. I'll be looking into converting some others in the next day or two.

Apparently my phone (or Verizon servers) had issues. I ended up just DL'ing the 246 zip to a pc and copying to the SD card.

I also still got GSM enabled and managed to switch the phone to Global Mode which is cool. I can swap sims and still call on GSM including ATT or VZW which has better service. So I got my cake and eat it too. Less data drops hopefully, faster ICS and still GSM service when I need it. I bet the Verzion sim can be provisioned for over seas (like the Razr) and keep my number too.

Did not receive update as yet. Looking at all the issues, I wonder if its a good idea to install ICS.
In the event that I do update, is it possible to revert to 905??

No...you can't FXZ back to. 905 after installing the ICS OTA...to attempt to do so will BRICK your phone.

To the question you didn't ask, Yes you should update unless you use wired headphones all the time; then there is a chance you will get whine. Some have, some haven't.
