Could one put said update.zip on the root of one's phone... and in case of a borked (bootlooping) ROM install, could one then use said update.zip file in the stock recovery (following a wipe of data and cache) to restore one's phone back to a working (albeit stock/unrooted) OS? At least one could call one's wife on the way home from one's location of employment... rather than one having a borked phone the whole way home... one.foxdog said:The ota update (4.5.601) was packaged in a update.zip that is flashable via stock recovery (stock froyo recovery) will be useful if/when they push out a update that patches current gingerbread root method.
In other words, one could sbf to froyo, flash it in stock recovery and be on stock 4.5.601 easily. If anyone wants the zip just post so and I'll mirror it
The reason I ask is because I am frequently tempted to flash new ROMs while at work... but our network and computers are locked down so tightly that I can't install RSD Lite, nor can I connect external storage devices... meaning I can't SBF back to stock in case of epic FUBAR. I've pondered the possibility of being able to drop an update.zip file on the root of my SD card for use in just such an occasion, but haven't actively pursued a solution.
Thanks for your time, and I apologize for the high douche quotient of my first paragraph... I don't normally stay up this late.
