This is why I wait for the official release and not have to deal with the headache of being a beta tester. It just isn't worth the trouble especially when HTC even posted saying that the OTA release today is not the official one anyway. I do give credit to all of you welling to take the chance.

The same thing happened to me. I took the battery out and rebooted normally. I went to the file on my SD card and noticed I saved the file as update.zip.zip. The zip extension is already on the file but you can't see it when renaming the file. I just deleted the second .zip and went back through the procedure and it worked fine. I now have my dose of Froyo. It seems stable so far.

Can we put the installation instructions on the first page of this thread then because the other ones are moving so fast it's hard to keep up. Plus the link is down so it would be good to update if it is restored.


TIA

People can use it at their own risk, which they are obviously doing anyways. Warning or no warning. Are you that determined not to eat crow that the update would be available today?

The update was not available today nor was it ever going to be. I could care less if it comes out today or next week. I would just rather not see people with phones that dont work because people like you are telling them its ok to install it. HTC already said today that the final release wont come out untill next week so i doubt ill be eating crow. Ill be more then happy to finish any that you cant though

The Update was scheduled to be released to a certain few merchants and users this afternoon. They were notified by email to the link. Engadget (or whoever the hell else) got hold of the link and posted it up. This update for all intent and purposes is the final. Now it may be true that those who were destined to receive this link/file are beta testers to test it out and possibly get any fixes before Tuesdays official send off, but thats for another topic. So for all intent and purposes, this is the final, IMO.
Now this isn't an okay to go ahead and download it and install it. If anyone still has reservations, then be patient and wait till Tuesday for the file.

With that said, AndroidForums is not condoning or restricting anyone wanting to test this file themselves. Its your choice. All I ask is to read and re-read the instruction slowly and carefully and be patience while the install does what it does.

As for the OP issue,, your issue was already addressed in this post.

Quote:
Figured out the issue. Just name the file " update " on your computer, when transferring to the SD card it will change the name to update.zip

When naming it update.zip on the computer, it was getting transferred as update.zip.zip
Now if there are any other issues, post them up.

You are too hardheaded to admit that this is exactly what the press releases were talking about and that you argued over and over against for the last day and a half. It's a beta, and that was made clear from the onset, nothing has changed. HTC is just trying to rid themselves of any liability.

I don't see how it could get any worse than the first update anyways. I'm not telling anyone it's ok, in fact I'm not telling people what to do with their phones at all, YOU ARE!!!!!

Show people the disclaimer and let them decide for themselves. There are enough people froyo'ing around for me to be willing to try the update. Final or not, and as it seems, there are plenty more as well.

I was running CM6 nightly builds for almost 2 weeks so i know all about builds that dont work and unofficial releases. To you and me it might not be a problem but to someone that doesnt know as much and installs this it might be a big problem.

How and the hell do you think this was the manual release sprint was talking about? Go back and read it my friend. It says to install the manual release when it comes out it will still be OTA you just have to hit search now under HTC Software updates. Sprint and HTC both will NEVER release a update that you have to go into your bootloader to do. Face it, it was a mistake by HTC for having it on the website. It was pulled right away and they asked everyone else that was hosting the download to pull it also.

Never should you have to go into your bootloader to install a update from sprint or htc and that fact alone makes it clear as day that this was not ment for the public.

HTC is most likely covering their ass because this got out early. I have had it installed for over 3 hours with zero issues. I know a few others who installed it and nothing broke for them either. If they release a newer version next week, then so what can uprade to that then. The installed build number of this is exactly the one Sprint shows on their support website. So maybe there will be a newer version, maybe not. Obviously this was meant for select testers since you had to do it via bootloader, but despite what HTC is now saying that does not mean this isn't really the final version (and I am not saying it is definitely the final, but it's working great for me regardless.)

I was having the E: cannot find whatever error. I fixed it by renaming the zip file update. Do not name it update.zip. I was stuck on the 4G screen too but just be patient, it will load after a few minutes. Works fine for me.

Once I install this, is there any way for me to go back to 2.1 in case it does start to act funky? I am not rooted, and I am not looking to reset my phone back in a way that will erase everything.

Has anyone apply this update twice?

I am thinking about reapplying update to see if I can fix the browser problems to load flash content.

Some people are saying they are able to get it to work with no issues.

Who knows....

Anyone?

Me either. I can't get it to work. I get the same error no matter what I try. If I change it just to update, it doesn't recognize the file.

I heard a hard reset did the trick. May wanna try that first before installing twice. I hard reset right after flashing and I have no issues with flash.

The ONLY issue I noticed so far, and its not really a big one, is that when I hit the search button and the search bar comes up, pressing back to minimize the keyboard back out of search as well.

I've never done a hard reset.

How do you accomplish that?

Kind of same way as the installation of this update. Instead of bootloader you just "clear" the data. Everything on the phone will be erased. Your SD card will be unharmed though. How to hard reset the HTC EVO 4G - Know Your Cell

The funny thing is that I tried to install update again, and it couldn't find .zip file in my SD card.

When I turned on phone, and I looked at my SD card contents, the .zip file disappeared!

How the hell did that happen?

Did the update itself remove file from SD card?

I find that hard to believe.

I had the exact same issues. I fixed them by renaming the file to update.zip and make sure the update is on top of the sd card. I kept running into errors when I had it inside the root folder. Also if you downloaded it directly to the phone and moved it to the top of the card don't forget to delete it from the previous directory.

For those of you having issues with flash go to the settings menu. Scroll down until you see Enable Plugins. Click that then choose On demand. You should now see download arrows when viewing content online. Click the arrow and play the video.

I installed the update before it was pulled, before the official 'do not install' warning. So far phone seems to be fine, I hope when the real final comes out I'll be able to update OTA, or manually.

And you were CORRECT!

The hard reset fixed the browser/displaying flash content problem.

I, for the first time, am able to watch CNN.com flash content video with stock browser!


YES!!!!!!!!

HARD RESET IS THE SOLUTION!




(only problem, you start from scratch, but no biggie....)

ok, figured it out. You have to be at the 1.47 build before applying the update.zip, so get all updates from ota first. At least this is what did it for me.

I was rooted, but I did not use unrevoked. I followed the instructions here, [How To] Unroot and return to stock. - Android Central Forums to return to stock 1.32 rom, and then updated to 1.47 by ota updates, then finally I was able to apply the 2.2 update.zip.
