If you really want the ota, then use the .596 sbf, then try to pull it, maybe? Also, judging from what you said you were running on this phone previously, you have successfully used your .sbf file previously, right? If this is a different file, did you verify the md5sum?

I used the .602 sbf and got the OTA fine.

I JUST had this same issue last night. I was running LiquidGB 2.6 with the 13p radio. No matter what I did it wouldn't give me the update. I tried all the standard ideas (some already listed above).

Here's what I did to make it work:

1. Downgrade the radio to 07
2. SBF back to Stock Froyo
3. Reset the phone following the post-sbf instructions all over the interwebz
4. *228 option 1
5. Connect to WiFi
6. Check for updates

I THINK that it looks at your radio version as part of the determination if you need the update or not. I would bet that you are running on a current radio version that was installed with the p3 beta.

Hope that helps!

For what it's worth, I'm already flashing back to LiquidGB 2.6. It's simply the best thing out there (up there with cm7gb) from my MANY experiences with all the ROMS out there.

Good Luck!

Maybe I am wring but you shouldn't get the update if you are rooted.

You guys are doing a ton of work to get an update that fixed something by what I have read, didn't effect rooted users.

^^^ sort of correct (from my experiences) or I am misunderstanding your message

1. There are a lot of reports of rooted users getting updates (but you lose root, obviously). I did not root until AFTER the update was applied though.
2. You can still root the device AFTER the latest Verizon update using the Droid3 root method (i did this without any issues)

i think everyone is getting confused with my current set up and which OTA i am talking about....i am not trying to get the 605 update which is the keyboard fix...im talking about the OTA 602 gingerbread update coming from froyo...back when gingerbread was first leaked i updated with p3 droids pre-rooted two part update..since then i have been on cm7 and havent had much time to mess with my phone..i finally decided i wanted to SBF back to FROYO and then take the OTA to the official gingerbread...i must have SBFed 6 times at least in the past 2 days back to froyo and the SBF works fine but when i try to pull an update it says my device is up to date..(which it obv is not since im on froyo)..and whoever said something about the radio still being on 13p..i checked when on froyo and it was back to 7p or whatver

maybe since 602 is the current version, verizon assumes no one is on froyo anymore and doesn't support it or updates for it. who knows.

I think it's because there is already another update available that the .602 has been taken down. Honestly I would just use the 602 sbf (which is basically the ota) and use that then take the 605 update then re-root if you wanted to.
