    Just forced the OTA update to my phone.............here's how.

    I read this on another forum, and since I had nothing better to do I gave it a shot...........and it worked.

    Home/menu/settings/apps/all/google services framework/

    Touch this.

    Once it opens clear data and force stop it.

    Hit home/settings/about phone/check for updates.

    It took me 7-8 times doing it, and then it started downloading the update, installed, and no problems at all. Some of the other people on that forum did it 3 times and it worked, some did it 15 and it worked, and of course some did it a lot and nothing happened.

    Nothing is lost by clearing the data and force stopping it, so no fear there.

    Give it a shot, you really have nothing to loose but about 10 minutes of time............and you have a lot to gain if it works.

    Yes, 4.0.4 downloaded and installed and running great.

    They explained what the date means, but I can't remember.

    This has been on this site for a while. It seems to work for a very select few (i.e. not me ;-).

    Edit 6 minutes later....

    However...I just tried 2-3 times in a row just now, and BINGO!!!
    Rebooting into 4.04.

    It actually worked for me after about 8 attempts. I was very skeptical but thought I would give it a try - glad I did!
