Question [Q] OTA Update fails to complete with red exclamation sign in a triangle

I have Android 2.3.5 rooted S-Off phone. I've received the new FOTA system update and cannot install it. Whenever I tap and agree on the update the phone reboots to boot screen with green progress bar which ends up in a screen with a red exclamataion sign inside a red triangle all on the top of a phone image. Does anybody have any solution to overcome this problem?

To install the ota update first install the original recovery, then relock the boot loader and(optional unroot your phone).
You won't have any problem updating then.
To relock boot loader you can use the guide HTC has made to unlock it or else(easier step) use some tool such as rezo609's all in one tool.

Hitting thanks doesn't hurt
