    Thanks, I tried it with no success but it was worth the try :)

    Do you have to defrost any frozen apps in TB to get the OTA? Or just to install it after getting it?

    I wasn't able to download it but I signed up for Dropbox (loaded the Dropbox app) and that worked (downloaded)..

    How do I load the update now?

    1 Download the update onto your external sd-card.
    2 Power down your phone.
    3 Hold down both volume buttons, then press power button.
    4 Select recovery by pressing volume down then volume up.
    5 At the Android logo press both volume buttons.
    6 Select "apply update from sdcard" and then select the file downloaded in step 1 (Use vol up/down to navigate and power to select).
    7 Reboot.

    dautley you beat me to that.

    Just an FYI, I didn't defrost any of the 17 apps I had frozen in TB, didn't remove safestrap, didn't unroot, just downloaded from the link and installed the same way as dautley stated. Installed fine. rebooting now.

    I downloaded the update from the dropbox link and I don't really know how to install it.. Lol

    Lost root, used Motofail to get it back. Apps still froze in TB, safestrap recovery needed re-installed.

    :D:D

    Will installing the update through recovery mode delete everything like a factory reset?

    DanDroide Well-Known Member

    No it did not factory reset... I just did the update. Everything is intact.

    I followed dautley's 7 steps above...perfect! :)

    Just an observation since the MANUAL update...my phone is running EXTRA HOT and my EXTENDED BATTERY was not charging at all. I just switched batteries.

    Not liking this at all.

    At this point I would revert if I could.

    Could the manual update I downloaded be bad?

    HELP!

    When downloaded from the Dropbox, is the file the first on the list" "update.zip" ?

    I performed the update manually also. The phone seems fine....not hot and I do have the extended battery.

    Maybe your install got corrupted somehow?? Are you rooted??

    Did you download it to your sdcard or sdcard-ext? It needs to be on the sdcard-ext, even though in recovery it only says sdcard. Stupid file naming system.
    This is what mine says as well.

    I know I'm not supposed to say anything, as I'm part of this 905 soak test...but be forewarned, testers are experiencing LOADS of data drop/handoff/connectivity issues. I would not recommend installing this manual update. YMMV.

    It's not a soak, it's going OTA. Attached are the .pdf files of VZW's site.

    It is a soak for those who receive notification ON THEIR PHONE, and I'm referring to those that are manually downloading from the Dropbox location.
