    So in preperation for the November OTA update, I've unrooted my wife's incredible back to stock form (s-on etc.). When she is prompted for the OTA to install, it says it will reboot in 10 seconds, counts down and does nothing. This has been happening for a few weeks now.

    With everything back to stock, i'm not sure why the phone is not taking the OTA as it should. What options do I have here? I could always root and apply the RUU update, but then again, she doesnt really need to be rooted in the first place. I also don't want to apply any custom ROMs. Any input?

    If you truly unrooted and returned to stock (not just went s-on), try romoving the SD card, reboot and see if the upgrade takes. Had this work for one user that was experiencing the same issue.

    I unrooted it anticipating the November OTA so I wanted to make sure that was squared away before she clicked update and install. Didn't want her to end up with a brick.
