Default Droid 4 Update

Has anyone tried this yet? http://www.gottabemobile.com/2012/04...cklight-fixes/

I downloaded last night, installed Voodoo Rootkeeper, unfroze any apps that I had frozen, and then chickened out. LOL! I'm not sure what this will do with safestrap installed. Makes me a little nervous with no fastboot files.

I'm thinking it might be best to uninstall safestrap first and then apply the update. Any thoughts anyone?

On the D3, I would switch to non-safe system, apply the update in recovery, reboot, re-root, reinstall safestrap recovery from the safestrap app, reboot into safestrap, switch back to safe and everything was peachy. No need to even reinstall safe system as everything was still there. Did it twice for the 905 and 906 updates, dont see why it would be any different for the D4

EDIT: the only difference I may have is that I keep my non-safe system stock, I dont freeze/remove bloat, just root.

Glad to see wifi is on the list of bug fixes. I haven't been able to connect to my work wick, and my home wifi drops all the time (tethering from phone works perfectly though,go figure).

I probably will wait until this officially drops, though. Bleh, why no fastboot files yet?!

Just rebooted after applying the update. I'm running stock ROM. I unfroze everything I had frozen, hid root w/ Voodoo OTA, rebooted, did a backup (just in case), applied the update, restored root with Voodoo OTA and everything appears to be working.

Hope this really does fix the wifi problem. Been having some problems with the wifi here at work.

Took the plunge. I was running stock rooted with voodoo rootkeeper and safestrap recovery installed. Here are the steps I took:

1. Unfroze apps I had frozen in Titanium Backup.

2. Uninstalled safestrap recovery via the safestrap app (Shouldn't need to uninstall the app itself).

3. Backed up Superuser using Voodoo then selected "temp. un-root".

4. Rebooted and installed the update via the instructions from the link (FYI: You will need to have the update zip in /sdcard-ext, not /sdcard).

5. Rebooted and the phone shows the updated software version.

6. Restored root via Voodoo.

7. Reinstalled safestrap recovery using the safestrap app.

Success!

Wifi still dropping off randomly. I don't think this phone likes the 802.1xEAP security they are using here. Droid incredible worked just fine on it though.

Do you have to remove root to apply this?

I wonder why it was posted and then removed? Anyone?
