So two reasons for this topic. To inform some of you who might not get this update notification on a rooted phone but are interested in it nevertheless. And to ask if other people got the same error and if they found a solution for it.
Hopefully this fixes the bluetooth issues. BTW, this is a European phone, maybe the software version of the update is different in other regions.
Edit: when the system reboots it hangs at a green android with a red ! triangle. i accidentally pushed vol-up, and i can see a recovery menu. Apparently, it doesn't find my SD card... "failed to mount... invalid argument". I also tried to perform the update without an SD card, but he won't allow that and says i need an SD card. Could this be due to the ROM memory of the phone being split up that the update doesn't know where to look?
Edit2: If i just download the update without installing, there is a long zipfile with a lot of numbers in the filename in a folder "fota_dn". If i chose to install the update, but take out the SD card after the install fails but before the phone reboots (i shut down the phone of course), this file is gone, and there is a file "update.zip" in a different folder, namely "acer_ug". Both should be the update file because they are the same filesize as the update menioned (27,2 MB). So the file is indeed on my SD card, but the recovery system doesn't seem to be able to find it. I think it has something to do with the 4GB of phone memory being split into two, and has the system check the internal 2nd partition instead of the SD card.
Edit3: I tried to manually copy the zipfile to the root of the SD card and the root of the 2nd phone partition, also in a folder called "acer_ug" on the second phone partition... but no use. The recovery menu let's me navigate to the SD card to install the update, but it litterally says "E: failed to mount /sdcard (invalid argument)". Any ideas?
It also let's me update from cache, but that folder i can't access from my computer i think so i can't copy the zipfile there...
Edit4: i installed a smaller (2GB) SD card, formatted it from the phone, and now it's performing the update... fingers crossed!
