I really am a noob, ok I managed to root my phone ok, but I dont want to muck about flashing the ROM etc and tbh have no idea how to with odin, it scares me, don't want to muck it up! Would rather put the bloatware back on my mob, then unroot it and then try the OTA update which I would hope would work and then re root my phone. In hindsight I wished I had never bothered with this update! =(

I am not worried about stopping future "you need to update messages" as this does not bother me and I can simply untick the automatic update option!
What is annoying me is that my internal memory is now 30mb less since downloading this failed OTA update, and I simply want to delete it/be back to where I was before the OTA update!!
I have already wiped the cache in recovery and then used my file explorer app to look at the following files...
/data/cache/ is empty!
/cache/lost+found/ is empty!
/cache/recovery/ has a file called "last_log" which is only 7.23KB not 30mb! =(
So my internal storage is still 30mb more than before I did the OTA update, despite wiping the cache! =(
After I originally downloaded the 30mb update OTA it said the phone needs to reboot to install it, which it did but once it got to 25% installed the screen then went blank for a second and the phone started up as normal and then said update failed! So would this explain why the 30mb is not in the /cache? Where is it?!
Thanks for your help peeps! =)
