    I have a rooted droid razr. I have the stock rom with the Go Launcher Ex.

    Do I have to do anything besides unfreeze the bloatware to accept the OTA update?

    Do I have to unroot my phone?

    Thanks. I delayed the update another hour.

    First off, it's not ICS it's an update to gingerbread. Second, as long as you haven't made any system changes (it sounds like you haven't) it should install with just unfreezing the apps. You'll probably want to run ota rootkeeper before the update.
    trophynuts and bionicchronic like this.

    OP would you mind changing the title to this thread and take out "ICS"? Thanks.

    I'm also rooted but haven't been messing with anything system wide that I can think of. When I go to manually update to 6.12.181 from the OTA it gives me a box that reads "Check for update is not available at this time. Try again later." Is anyone else having this trouble? Is the OTA sniffing for something special on my device before it will let me update?

    It may just be that it's not available for your phone yet.

    Have you ever used Cheesecake? Try rebooting the phone, sometimes that's all it needs.

    I am not using Cheesecake (never heard of it- is it in the Market? I'll go check) but I reboot several times a week and haven't gotten anything through.

    Don't use cheesecake!!

    I'd give it a few days. My wife just got the update about an hour ago while I had the update the day it became available.

    the ota will also not work if you have safestrap or cwm installed, as i found in my case...

    I had several apps frozen using titantium (free version).

    NFL, MOG, Netflix, Slacker, Slingbox, Verizon Video (doesn't work if you're rooted so I froze it), VPN, VZ Navigator, Amazon Kindle.

    My update went fine. I didn't even unroot the phone first.

    I did lose root after the update but with the Motofail root app, I got it right back.

    After several more days I'm still not getting anything from the OTA menu other than "Check for update is not available." Is anyone else still getting this message? Why isn't it telling me that I'm up-to-date instead?

    I get the unable to connect to Motorola Services when i try to do it but honestly not sweating it. Have heard a lot of mixed reviews on the latest ota and as it stands with what i have frozen and how my phone is now everything runs like a dream. If it ain't broke don't fix it.

    That being said if you really must have it working then just use matt's tool. Easy enough to find just google it.
