Arrow Here's how to install the update entirely on your Droid without the use of a computer (OTA):

What You'll Need:
- A MicroSD Card inserted into your Droid
- An Internet Connection

1. Install Astro File Manager:
Install Astro File Manager for free from the Android Market if you don’t already have it.

(Scanning this QR code will take you to the Android Market listing for Astro File Manager.)

2. Download the file to your phone:
Download the file from one of the following locations directly from the internet to your phone:

Location 1 | My Droid Does [Tested and Verified!]

Location 2 | Dev-Mob [Tested and Verified!]

Location 3 | [Tested and Verified!]

Location 4 | MegaUpload [Tested and Verified!]

Location 5 | Media Fire [Tested and Verified!]

Location 6 | [Tested and Verified!]

Location 7 | [Tested and Verified!]

Location 8 | [Tested and Verified!]

Location 9 | [Tested and Verified!]

(Scanning the QR codes from above will automatically begin the download from its respective location.)

3. Move the file to the root of your SD card:
To move the to the root of your SD card, do the following:
- Open Astro File Manager
- Enter the Downloads folder
- Press and hold on the file
- Select "Edit" and then "Copy"
- Now press the "Astro Up" button once which will take the root directory
- Press the "Astro Edit" button followed by "Paste"
The file should now be in the root directory.

4. Prepare for the Update:
It is now time to prepare the Droid to perform the update. You will be accessing Recovery Mode to do this. Start by powering down the phone completely.

While holding “X” on the physical keyboard, hold the power button to turn on the phone. You may let go of the power button, but do not let go of X.

After a few seconds, an Exclamation Mark icon will appear. You may now let go of X. To access Recovery Mode from the exclamation mark icon, hold the volume up button and then press the camera button.

5. Perform the Update:
You will then open a text menu with four options. Using the directional pad, navigate to “apply” and push the gold, center button to select it.

The update process will begin immediately and should take no longer than a minute or two. It will let you know when the process is complete.

If you get E:signtature verification failed, you have a bad download. Just download again. The servers are probably getting hammered right now!

You might get this error:
E:Can't open /cache/recovery/command
DON'T worry about it... it just blows right past it and installs fine.

From here, navigate to “reboot system now” and select it. Your phone will shut off and reboot.

Some users are reporting a longer than usual boot time after installing this, be patient and do not be alarmed, this is normal.

If you're having issues after your first boot, do a battery pull.

6. Congratulations!
Your Droid has now been updated to the official Android 2.2 Froyo release! If you have any questions, comments, or concerns what so ever, please post them to this thread. I will be closely monitoring this thread to provide assistance to those who need it.
