    its because you have deleted some stock apps. YOUR PHONE WILL HAVE TO HAVE ALL THE APPS THAT IT CAME WITH BACK ON IT.. There is another tread talking about this whole situation.. IF YOU HAVE NANDROID BACKUP. FROM WHEN YOU FIRST CHANGED RECOVERIES. run that then change to stock recovery and it should work..

    be careful.. the above is only a educated guess.

    The first update for the Mercury screwed up my phone's MMS, and Cricket gave me the runaround until I threatened to go to the FCC with proof that it wasn't an isolated incident. They caved and gave me a new phone w/o the update on it. When I got the message for this "mandatory" update I installed Custom Recovery and did a Nandroid backup, then I put the stock Recovery back on it and ran the update... Aaaaaaaaaaand MMS immediately stopped working properly again. So I put Custom Recovery back on and restored my backup. Voila, works fine. If you're going to try this update do a Nandroid backup first (unless you don't ever want to be able to send MMS while connected to Wifi again), the phone's stock backup program only saves settings and files it does NOT backup the boot.img. And as far as I can tell this update does nothing except install MUVE and (failingly) try to fix the MMS issue of the first update.
