Hello i have a problem and i where just wondering if anyone else has experienced the same think..

When i want to do the ota update it downloads it fine no problem, then it restarts and says installing update, afterwards it says update failed with no futher explanation.

I have been trying to do it five times or so..

The update is called: x9006_12.A.05_INT_005_140605

I have root if that makes any difference.

Do you have a find 7a (X9006) or find 7? Have you installed a custom recovery? Why don't you install the ColorOS 1.2.1i stable? If you're not at stock recovery flash it and retry!

Cheers

This update is basically the same as ColorOS 1.2.1i. Just flash 1.2.1i. Another thing you can try is re-flashing your recovery. That seemed to fix it for me. And I too, have root.

That is what zoltan indicated. Flash the stock recovery, run the update and then reflash your custom recovery.
