Alot of people i see are still getting the update failed error...i was getting it and i found out i wasnt removing bootstrap completly..so heres the process i use
1. Go into titanium backup and find razr bootsrap
2. Click wipe data then uninstall
3.Go to root explorer or es file explorer
4. Navigate to system/ bin
5.In the bin folder you will find two files..."logwrapper" and "logwrapper.bin." Delete the file that is named just "logwrapper."Then go to the logwrapper.bin file and click rename. DELETE the". bin" so your just left with "logwrapper."
6.Reboot and except the ota

This will work only if you are stock rooted......

When I try to delete logwrapper ES file explorer says "logwrapper cannot be deleted". I even tried renaming it something else like logwrapper2 or logwrapperbak and it says "sorry, operation failed". Any ideas?

Im on stock rooted rom, ota 748 xt912 verizon.

Thanks

Do you have root enabled on es? Our you could just use root explorer.

Yes I enabled root. Might just have to go buy root explorer, you think that's the solution?

Did you remount the filesystem R/W? It's read-only (R/O) by default...

Ehm, I'm on cwm for GSM, and I've this problem: with ES file explorer, I can't find system folder! And I can't even find the logwrapper with search option!
How can I resolve?
