Re: Which reset method are you using?

Just want to add my story so that other can benefit.
Just like most of you I was waiting and rechecking for update without any success. Read the suggestion about factory resetting the phone on this forum but I was skeptical because I had the latest firmware already. Anyways, after getting frustrated I finally reset the phone. After the setup, It started downloading the update automatically, didn't even have to go in the setting to check for update manually.
So, to all the doubters out there...I say give factory reset a try. It is a lot of work to set everything up back to the way it was before reset but atleast I have Jellybean now!
IMHO, anyone that has not gotten the update and is on software number 2.20.502.7 710RD should try the factory reset. It works in what seems like most cases. Anyone that's running a software number older than 2.20.502.7 710RD should consider using the RUU for 2.20.502.7 710RD to bring the device to that level and then it should install the JB update forthwith.
Unfortunately for me that tactic failed to work. I have reset the device on two occasions. Both times I ended up in the same place as I started. I won't be resetting the device again.
Question for the community... When resetting the HOX are you using the reset from settings or the reset from the bootloader/recovery? Could you post which reset method you used and if it's been successful or not. It would be interesting to see if that's a factor. FWIW, I reset using the bootloader method exclusively.
I have done it both ways. First time I reset it through the software, second time used the hardware keys (bootloader method) neither have worked. I simply don't have the time to be reinstalling and restoring apps and data. While this is a very frustrating issue, it isn't the end of the world for me, I can live with ICS for now. When my contract is up, I won't be buying another HTC device.
