Sorry for the confusion. I'm so used to working with those names day
in and day out that I once again forgot to clarify them.

yakju is for the GSM/HSPA+ version (well, for one of the GSM
variants), mysid is for the CDMA/LTE version (i.e. the Verizon one).

ITL41D and ITL41F are 4.0.1, and ICL53F is 4.0.2.

Generally speaking, unless you're working with AOSP and flashing
custom systems, you shouldn't need to use those as your phone will get
updated automatically.

Will the update wipe my date like apps, sms etc.?

I just looked back at some of the other discussions and figured that
one out... thanks for the timely response though! I come from
motorola with locked bootloader hell, so it's much different, but it
seems easy enough. Thanks again JBQ!!

TL;DR: Yes.

Specifically:

-if your bootloader is locked, unlocking it will wipe your data.
That's done for security/privacy reasons.

-if you're running a custom build, the system signature will be
different, and that also requires to wipe data.

-However, if you're keeping your bootloader unlocked at all times
(which is a bad idea) and you're running an official build already,
you can flash a newer one without wiping data and that'll work fine.
Note that you can only move forward, not back. Be careful, though,
it's very easy to wipe data by accident when doing that, and the
default script does that.

Extracted the zip file inside and tried to flash using:

fastboot -w update yakju-icl53f-factory-89fccaac

Says it didn't find the expected signature.
read_central_directory_entry failed

Actually, you shouldn't extract that zip file. fastboot update takes
the zip directly.

Generally speaking, the flash-all.sh script in there should take care
of the most common case.

The zip file is what I'm giving to fastboot (not the tar or img
files).

Can't use flash-all.sh, I'm on Windows but the command is the same
(just flashed ITL41F using the same command)

Hmmmm. I just gave it another try on my linux box and it's fine here,
so I think the download itself is OK. I don't have a Windows box to
test on.

If I understand correctly, you were able to actually extract the .zip
at some point, so I'm assuming that it isn't corrupted. I'm starting
to fear that fastboot might have a bug on Windows that'd prevent it
from using those files, which would be very unfortunate.

One quick question:

If I do a fastboot update image-yakju-icl53f.zip (note there is no -w)
will it update without wiping my apps and sd folder?

If you're running an official itl41d or itl41f, yes, it will. Note
that you really need to update the bootloader and baseband as well, or
you right not being able to receive future OTA updates.

Yeah, the zip file is safe, the checksums match too.
I'll boot into linux and report if it works there. Thanks

It sounds like I should look into using zip instead of tgz. That'd
probably avoid such issues. It'd probably be reasonably easy to have a
.bat in addition to the .sh (it's not like the script does anything
fancy)

Yeah, I noticed in your example you were trying to flash the whole tar
package, rather then the update.zip in the tar.

I just updated w/ windows fastboot w/ no issues w/o wiping too :)

Thanks a lot, ICL53F brings back the "Tethering & Portable Hotspot" settings that were missing with ITL41F on french carrier SFR.
Curiously, these were working normally if switching the SIM with one provided by Bouygues Telecom.

Best regards,
Patrick.

Hi guys,

thanks for this. Can I enquire though about the lead time to get this
via an OTA update?

I'd rather not flash my phone as I don't want to lose my setup at the
moment, but I really want USB Host.

Thanks,
James.

Strange problem. I flashed these to my device and now, everytime i reboot the phone and it starts up i'll get an error from com.android.phone ("Unfortunately the process com.android.phone has stopped). Everything works but it's kind of irritating.

Any way to fix this?

And to continue...

I tried with the 4.0.1 factory images, and all is fine with those..no FC message on startup, but as soon as I update through OTA or fastboot method, the force closing on boot starts.

Hello, how do I exact the files after downloading? Do I download to my phone, extract, and then go into the bootloader and fine the file or do I download to my PC and then do something?

At a high level: the files should be unarchived, and they contain a
script called "flash-all.sh". That script should be run from within
its directory. You need to have your phone in fastboot mode, with the
bootloader unlocked. You need to have fastboot in your path, and (on
Linux) you need USB to be configured to allow fastboot access.

Can someone answer from a noob level how I get this file unarchived...like what program I use, do I do it on the pc or mac. Once I get the file unarchived, I can get into the bootloader and take it form there.

Can someone please link to instructions on how to update the ROM? Preferably using Linux (Ubuntu).
Also, I already have ICL53F, but I think the ROM is different than the stock one, because it doesn't let you connect to other networks (only Verizon's)
So my second question is whether it's the same ROM as Verizon's and if not, I'm searching for instructions on replacing it to the stock one.

Hopefully the instructions I'm looking for will enable me full control over the device, including updates for future version.

Thanks.

Found several instructions.
Basically, running "flash-all.sh" will do the trick. Below are some more tutorials.

What I fail to understand: Is this Verizon's image, where the you cannot edit APNs, operators, etc.?
