Update failing.

tried to install the update today, and hit the out of memory error as described here :

http://community.vzw.com/t5/Samsung-Fascinate/Gingerbread-DL-fails-due-to-memory-shortage/m-p/746206...

(started my own thread to keep from hijacking the other guy's thread any worse)

 

I deleted some apps and cleared the cache and now get the update downloaded with no more out of memory errors, but now the update hits 100% and nothing happens. no instal, no reboot, nothing.

 

Tried several times, same thing.

 

I've gone through all the suggestions from the other thread up to doing a factor reset, and still nothing happens after the update hits 100%.

 

I'm on attempt #6 or 7, and have now exceded my monthly allowence for data, and still the update will not apply.

 

Any way to download the update and manually apply it?

Just follow the instructions in this thread.

This is NOT a help. This link takes you to an area, in a thread, where people are talking about fixing their GPS not working. Not about the update failing in general.

 

The update on my wife's fascinate is total fail, its stuck in a reboot every 3mins or so loop, messing with google maps to fix the gps isn't a fix for this.

I believe it is.

 

The post with the 10 detailed steps are exact instructions on how to totally replace the android GB

software on your phone.  ie ..manually update the phone to GB.

( and yes, a side result of this, is that the GPS will also be fixed. )
