    I was running apex 1.41 and the 2.3 update kept popping up and it would force update but would fail. so i reflashed apex 1.31 and samething would happen it would force update but would fail. So then I reflashed my backup rom of when I first rooted my phone but hadn't flashed a custom rom yet and i can't get the update at all O.T.A.

    So how do i just get my phone back to like out of the box and then just update OTA or something? I just want to go back to stock and get the latest verizon update.

    Thats seems intense. I don't want to add more stuff but i want to just wipe the phone and start over but keep it current and stock. Is there not a way to wipe the phone and bring it back to out of the box status?

    SBF'ing is the only way to get that new phone smell my friend. It's easier than it looks.( or sounds)
