    I got that error as well when doing the manual update but it went right past that and kept on going. After several minutes the update was done and all was fine.

    Is your phone not updating?

    Yea it tries to update ending with update aborted. I hope the refurb they send is ok. If not i will keep sending it back until i get what i want.
  4. Are you by any chance using a Mac? I got the same error when I was using my Mac and then when I switched to PC, it worked. Maybe it's because of my Macs Zip app but Idk.

    Not 100% sure but that looks like it. I would have to run the update again.
    I know it starts i with

    assert failed and ends with Installation aborted.

    I ask because I'm getting the same error message when I try to update manually. I have not received the update OTA yet.

    I have Build # ERD15. What is yours?

    That is exactly the message I get. The little research I have done says that you need to get back to the original build.prop file. I am not sure how to restore that file. I am using Droid Overclock and know that I have changed some of the build props. In some of the Build Properties it has a revert to stock option and some it does not. Either way, no update for me until I can restore those files.
