Is there a way to force re-installation of the latest update/version?

Something went wrong in the latest update and phone kind of works but I cant for example send new SMS's. It shows message sent to first contact in addresses, twice. Text prediction does not work in messaging. Words are show before anything is typed but stays empty after started typing..

If you want to go the whole way: Do a factory reset using |- Settings | System | Reset device -|.

Would like to avoid that.. it also stopped syncing and there is quite a lot stuff in the phone. Setting up accounts and apps again 'n again is always a pain. Would be nice if 'current setup' could be backed up also.

Unfortunately you will have to go through device reset if you want to reinstall the latest update.

Yes, and then install each update individually. You do not appear to be able to go from factory to in one update. I hope this gets changed, as this is going to be a real pain as more monthly releases come out ...

Not each, currently it requires two steps:

*1. Update to

*2. Update to (or later)

That is each, at the moment. is the factory reset version (not an update), then and then

Nope, there are and in between.

Ah ,yes., forgotten that one since it was available before many of us actually got the phone, and thus I conflate it with But was just a hotfix, not a platform update.

My point still remains, though - it isn't currently seem possible to do a factory reset and then update the the latest release in a single step.
