update failed .. please try again later :(

progress bar gets half way then the little green man falls down . I wonder if its failing because i'm using an SD card and the partition layout has changed ?

Too small for a Jelly Bean update, I presume.

Maybe it's a patch for the root exploit we've all been using?

If you have rooted or made any other modifications to the system such as using microSD then the update will fail. You will have to flash from the full Xolo ICS ROM then let it update. This is because patch updates run checks on system files before updating.

I've been following the ICS ROM updates on a test server and the changes between versions are minimal. Some changes I have noticed are down to the libs in the system. Looks to me like improvements to the ARM translation engine as well as the replacement of some ARM-only libs with native Intel libs. Oh and the usual system app updates and framework updates. And still 4.0.4

So if anybody wants to update for us and attempt a root that would be helpful. I'm still without my phone or I'd do it myself :(

BTW might be useful for somebody that has updated to pull a copy of the newly updated system using adb. Then we can run a diff on the updated system and the original Xolo ICS to find the differences then package them up for people to use. Just an idea.

I updated from Xolo ICS WITHOUT root. It doesn't mention anything about the update nor does it have an update log. So what would you like me to do? Btw, I don't know how to use adb at the moment and I haven't installed anything on my PC to do so... Yet

I think the only thing that is on everyone's mind is can root still be obtained, so if you could try and root with rickywyatts tool that would be helpful, you can unroot with the tool if you do not wish to keep it.

I looked inside the update zip and the only change I saw was some libs and google chrome x86.

I can't install the update, it fails every time, so I thought I'd flash the phone with xolo ics (using rickys tool) but it won't do it, I get the same error as with the update, red triangle of death, even trying fix brick and a factory reset result in the red triangle of death ... so it looks like I won't be able to update.

Do u have root still ?

And if you have xolo update on sd card you can go into recovery and reinstall.

Yes still got root, tried it with root, without root still no dice, I have the xolo update on the sd card and it won't run it, same red triangle of death.

Can't seem to get the phone into recovery either, just sticks at droid boot and stays there.

When at droidbot, push power + volume up to enter bootloader menu.

If that fails then the problem is this :( accidental or deliberate who knows ?

It still fails, doesn't even get halfway, just gives the red triangle and reboots.

I doubt his problem is anything to do with the update as he says it didn't even flash for him. Something else is wrong on the phone.

jikobutsu: Is the update a patch update like the Orange ICS or does it have the full files inside?
