Default Update to 2.3.340 easily!

EDIT 1/30/11:

Coming from ANY non-blur based ROM and doing Maderstcok is guaranteed to bootloop due to mismatch in framework without a data/cache wipe.

End EDIT

I just saw this over at xda and droid x forums and figured this would help a lot of people out.

Update to 2.3.340 without sbf'ing.

maderstcok - OTA 2.3.340 update.zip

maderstcok - OTA 2.3.340 update.zip
None are responsible for your phone but you.

After a bit of work I've created an update.zip for you guys that want a fresh install of 2.3.340 without sbfing.


This is the
FULL, OTA 2.3.340 - contains radio, kernel, and all other updates, even those EXCLUDED by the 2.3.340 system only sbf.

What that means is that if you have 2.3.15, 2.3.151, or 2.3.320 you're one update.zip away from the OTA 2.3.340


This is useful in many ways:
  • You want stock .340 but didn't create a nandroid backup
  • Can't OTA (modded phone)
  • Get ready for an OTA
  • Remove Root
  • Add bloat back
  • Re-Odex
  • Your phone is acting weird on the update
  • Something broke
  • Fresh ROM install
  • You don't want to flash 5 update.zips or sbf to update your phone
  • etc.
This will format your system data (helps prevents bootloops - not 100%) and system (in case a rom put some apps in the /system/app) partitions and also changes the boot image to the stock moto M (to fix the Tranquility boot logo - something even an SBF won't fix).

As always, make a backup and I'm not responsible for what happens to your phone.


Download
the file here and place it on your sdcard:

Instructions:
  1. Using the Droid X Bootstrapper make a backup. (more information here)
  2. Browse (using volume buttons) to "install zip from sdcard" and select it with the camera button.
  3. Select "choose zip from sdcard".
  4. Select "maderstcok340.zip"
  5. Confirm the install.
  6. Be patient, wait for the install to finish.
  7. Reboot the Droid X. DO NOTHING ELSE IN CLOCKWORKMOD!!!!!!!
  8. Activate the phone with VZW (more instructions below).
If you attempt to create a backup or flash a rom post maderstcok installation you're going to have a paperweight. This seems to be because maderstcok removes root and the clockworkmod recovery area, so it doesn't like you playing around in there. Re-root and reinstall the bootstrapper, then create a backup or flash a new rom, DON'T DO IT BEFORE REBOOTING THE DX AFTER ISNTALL.

Formatting Data and Cache is
optional; however, if you want a really clean install do so. If you factory reset you'll be forced to activate the phone automatically while if you don't you'll have to follow the quick and dirty activation instructions below - the choice is ultimately yours.

Quick and dirty instructions for activation:
  1. Dial *228
  2. Press 1
  3. Enter last 4 of primary acct holder's SSN
  4. Wait - more in depth instructions in a link further down.

This can take some time, especially on the two system installs and the radio install. Don't battery pull unless you want a brick.

The file won't flash properly if you have a botched download - this seems to be caused by the size of the file. Please check your file size before flashing:


Size: 284.7 MB (298481300 bytes)

MD5: ce7122280eafad4a39ba7fefeb764bf5

My free filehosters sometimes .zip the .zip - it looks like maderstcok340.zip.zip

Just unzip once and check the md5 to make sure it checks out - if not, redownload. Don't try to flash the .zip.zip without unzipping it once!

You'll have to activate your phone again after the install. See
this for additional help.

If you encounter any problems during the flashing process follow standard ROM installation troubleshooting (i.e. battery pull, factory reset, etc.)


A lot of this stuff is from Team Black Hat - I did pull some of my own phone files too - but if you're looking to donate, please hit them up. Without them we'd be up a creek. Tell 'em I sent ya


One final note - z4root seems to work flawlessly after flashing this file. Just thought I'd throw that in there...


Enjoy!


EDIT: Currently number 1 google search result for 2.3.340 update.zip - thanks to everyone for your support!

Great find, thanks to you. I just sbf'ed to .340 about an hour ago. Wished I would have seen this then!

Ok so just to clarify... this can be used no matter if you're on .315, .320, or even .340 and just want a clean slate, correct?

does this do a fully factory reset, and make your phone 100% stock, or should you SBF to .320 before you update it for 100% stock?

It's intent is to do a full factory reset after applying this, otherwise you would not be able to get the next OTA update (presumably GB, but who knows).

It says what it does in the very first post:

This is useful in many ways:
  • You want stock .340 but didn't create a nandroid backup
  • Can't OTA (modded phone)
  • Get ready for an OTA
  • Remove Root
  • Add bloat back
  • Re-Odex
  • Your phone is acting weird on the update
  • Something broke
  • Fresh ROM install
  • You don't want to flash 5 update.zips or sbf to update your phone
  • etc.

According to the instructions we don't have to, but I read on the threat something about renaming the file to update.zip. Do we have to rename it?

No you don't have to rename it, and probably should not rename it. I kind of skimmed through that thread and I believe they were saying that renaming the file changes the MD5 checksum, and that the update will not work.

Ok I tried this out tonight. You have to be very careful to do it right. Then, for me and for GMB, it got stuck in a bootloop. If that happens you have to do a factory recovery data wipe (hold power button and home key down), then you're golden.

Understand that this has to be done right. ...or else.. Even then you're prolly gonna bootloop, but you'll be fine after you do a reset.

Did you try the factory wipe and Steven described several posts above? Hold down the power button and home key until you get into factory recovery and then to a factory reset.

okay so I am super freaking out b/c I have done this and it worked with the exception that in place of the 3G status icon I have a blue triangle and can not connect to anything. wifi works but no 3G. and I could have sworn I did a back-up before hand but apparently it didn't work. AND to make things worse this isn't even my phone and the person will be here tomorrow to pick it up. what the hell did I do and how do I fix this? I've never even seen this icon before. help please!

Dial *228 and choose option 1 to reprogram the phone.

that would've been to easy. I'm a dude. I have to freak out, not wait for a reply, think i have a solution, and really mess everything up. So yeah I freaked, thought if I tried flashing the TBH update from a couple days ago that everything might be okay and it looked to install a-okay, then after the motorola logo I get a black screen saying:

Bootloader
30.04
Err:A5,69,35,00,27



Battery OK
OK to Program
Connect USB
Data Cable

(when I plug in USB cable it does not show on the computer but after where it says OK to Program it now says Transfer Mode: USB

Any clues?? And this time I PROMISE to wait for a reply!

***********UPDATE*******
I SBFed it and it worked! so I redid the update and followed complete instructions this time. Lesson learned!

oops - you bricked yourself, please read the full instructions man...

and as for bootloops, the consensus on the street seems to be that coming from any non-blur rom will cause bootloops due to inconsistencies in the framework. if you're just updating or wiping your phone because you want to clean your /system you'll be ok. Might want to change OP - this is how I've edited my post:

EDIT: coming from ANY non-blur based ROM and doing Maderstcok is guaranteed to bootloop due to mismatch in framework without a data/cache wipe

Exclamation

I'm in a boot loop! I tried what Steven said but when I hold the power button and home button at startup I get a screen with an exclamation point in a triangle and a green droid. If I dont do this, I am stuck in a boot loop that goes through my liberty boot screen.

Please need some help

When you are at that screen with droid and triangle with exclamation mark, push the search button (button with the magnifying glass), then do wipe data/factory resest and wipe cache partition and then reboot.

So, to confirm:

I'm running on Liberty. If I flash this, I will go into a bootloop; in that situation, I should get into clockwork recovery and do a data/factory reset...and it should solve my problem...that would be the ideal thing to do, right?

You should do a data/cache wipe before applying Maderstcok. If by chance you still bootloop, then you will have to do what Steven58 suggested in post #16

Will this work for a phone that is on version 2.3.9? I haven't had a phone update since early september and I'd like to get back on an OTA schedule or at least up to date with the basebands and such. If it won't, what steps do i need to take to make it work? I'm running the original Moto Froyo leak that came out back then.

Also, what is the best way to back up all of my contacts and information since it sounds like i'll be doing a factory reset? Will the info all just come back? I'm not so worried about my apps and such, just all of my contact info. Thanks.

Thanks.

You can backup your contacts to your SD card by going to:

Contacts > Settings > Import/Export > Export to SD card

To restore your contacts follow the same path but import instead

Thank you for that. Now to the more important question, will this method work with my phone which is still running the original 2.2 leak?

Are you asking if you change Roms or Android Version if you'll lose your contacts?

As long as you don't format your SD card, it will always be there. I've been though a few SBFs and its always been there.

Hey guys!

I have a Droid X still running 2.2 and I was very happy of this opportunity. I put the .zip on the root of my droid x and installed it through clockwork mod however it gets stuck on "installing update.zip." Can anyone help me here?

Stock 2.2 Droid X running Gala X Theme

I'm in the same boat with tyrone... running the old 2.2 leak, ver. 2.3.9.MB810. Will this procedure work for us??

so as long as you re-root and reinstall bootstrap you can overclock and custom rom?

im kind confused by this

"If you attempt to create a backup or flash a rom post maderstcok installation you're going to have a paperweight."

It means don't use the remnants of bootstrap/clockwork mod after doing maderstcok. Root your phone again and install bootstrap again before you try to make or restore backups.

The Maderstcok zip was so much easier than flashing back to stock using sbf. After months of procrastinating, I finally updated to 2.3.340 from leaked 2.3.15. Then I re-rooted using Z4 root, flashed the rubiX 2.0 ROM and BigDX Serenity theme.

Don't forget, for anyone that is running a custom ROM and might not have a stock backup on your sd card that this is a great way to get your phone ready for the potential OTA Gingerbread update...

Question little help please ?

I am running Apex 1.4.1 and i want to start fresh and get alot of junk off my phone from me not really knowing what the hell i was doing. i want to run Maderstock to get totally fresh clean stock phone. i want all the crap off of my SD card as well. (all except my photos,videos,music).

everyone states to download maderstock.zip to the root of your sd card. is that different than just saving it to the sd card?if so, how?

first i would run maderstock.zip from bootloader, when done should i wipe phone factory reset/ and wipe partition directly after that using bootloader ,? or do i reboot phone and do a stock factory reset from the stock phone settings?

I did this last night.

No it's not different, that's the same thing as saving it to your sd card. Check this first post out (hope it's OK to link to another site).

maderstcok - OTA 2.3.340 update.zip.

I ran maderstcok first, my phone bootlooped though. I'd suggest wiping data and partition in bootloader first, then running maderstcok. I think that will keep you from having to worry about bootlooping.

Hope everything goes well man, it was my first time doing it and I think withing 2 1/2 hours I'd maderstcoked, rerooted, ROMed, downloaded my theme and had about half of my apps back.

Still few things I want to get rid off of my sd card as well and the bloatware still left behind.

I am very new to all of this, please forgive me if my questions are tedious

I put the leaked 2.3.3 Gingerbread on my DX late last night before I realized that I would lose root in doing so. Can I use this to go from the leaked 2.3.3 to 2.3.340? Would that allow me to run Z4root and then download the pre-rooted 2.3.3 Gingerbread? I'm on a Mac and don't completely understand how to SBF.

Thank you kindly in advance -
