Thanks for the response, I appreciate you taking the time.


No problem. I'll try to get to my computer, but it will be a few hours. Meanwhile, everything you need is in PSouza's tool in the support_files folder.

PM me or just reply with your status and I will try to assist.

Start by going into a command prompt and CD to the support_files folder. From there you can run ADB shell to get connected to the phone. Do you have a # prompt when you connect?

Keep me posted!

Hey, I'll be damned...worked like a charm!!

I knew about the support files with psouza's tool, but just needed to figure out a few of the basic ADB commands.

It was pretty simple once you pointed me in the right direction.
You sir are the man...and I really appreciate your help. Thanks again.

Thanks for posting this, just what I was wating for, the final verification that 890 is the official update. Couldn't wait for the OTA though probably would never come. `check for update is not available at this time`

I hate the thanks button

Hmm, i'm unable to install the OTA. I did some freezing, but unfroze it before install. I also edited my build.prop and some other system files. Could that be the cause?

It just rebooted and said "sorry, the installation failed" or something.
