Another way to insure a good install is to use a third party program, wipe the phone completely and install.  It is never a good idea to load one OS over the top of another .

 

I left out the third party program name because I am new here and don't know the rules about posting third party material.

Hi,

You can speak of 3rd party apps.  You just can not post links to 3rd party apps.

Thanks for the info on linking off the site.

 

I have had very good luck with the following process upgrading my 9530.  Download the new OS from Verizon site, shrink it with Shrink-A-OS, then use BBSAK to backup your apps and wipe your device and install new software.

 

I actually tried upgrading both ways, using Desktop Manager and the process prescribed above.  The wipe and clean install seemed to make my phone quicker and more responsive and by shrinking the OS down (removing what you don't want or use prior to install) is saves application memory for more that you want to add. I boot up at 42.6 and not been below 35.5.  I use two batteries so I only do a battery pull when I switch them.

 

I do know every phone acts different, just sharing my experience.
