Default HOW TO INSTALL - Froyo 2.2 RUU with the simplest instructions ever - WINDOWS XP ONLY!

this will be short and sweet.
the entire process should only take about 10 minutes and does NOT require root.
WINDOWS XP ONLY.
EDIT: there have been users that have successfully used Vista and 7 both 32 & 64-bit, also a post from a MAC user in this thread, but windows xp is the only OS i can personally vouch for.

THERE IS A WAY TO BACKUP YOUR APPS BEFORE INSTALLING FROYO.
http://androidforums.com/htc-incredible/161946-froyo-2-2-ruu-simplest-instructions-ever-windows-xp-only.html#post1478714
(or just scroll down a bit.)

REQUIREMENTS:

1. windows xp -ONLY
2. htc incredible 30%+ battery
3. usb cable
4. the official RUU named:
"RUU_Incredible_C_Froyo_VERIZON_WWE_3.21.605.1_Rad io_2.15.00.07.28_2k4k_NV_1.50_PRL58006_release_143 351_signed.exe"
which i uploaded
here:
MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

here:
http://www.filedropper.com/ruuincrediblecfroyoverizonwwe3216051radio215000728 2k4knv150prl58006release143351signed_1

or here:
RUU_Incredible_C_Froyo_VERIZON_WWE_3.21.605.1_Radi o_2.15.00.07.28_2k4k_NV_1.50_PRL58006_release_1433 51_signed.exe

INSTRUCTIONS:
1. connect your incredible via usb and set as disk drive.
2. run the RUU on your WINDOWS pc.
3. follow its instructions
(first few steps are allowing it permission to run, check-box that you understand it will wipe your phone, turning your phone on and connecting via usb, closing all running processes on your comp)

the RUU will literally take over. your phone will shut off as it updates. stay by your computer and monitor the progress. the pc will show you a status bar indicating how far along the ROM update is.

----------------------------------------
once completed, the computer will give you a dialogue box that reads something like "your rom has been updated!" which you close.
at the end of the update, my phone was powered off with something that resembled the following image:

there were no screenshots of it, so i tried to draw it from memory. it'll do.

i left the phone alone for another minute or so and it rebooted itself with the nifty "DROID" bootup screen.
nice and clean, back to "out of the box" status.
THIS IS FOR WINDOWS XP ONLY.
(im using XP -SP3)


now if you ignored the FOUR times i typed "windows xp only" and are getting errors 170/171, go here:
RUU error 170 & 171 solution for Windows 7

should you run into ADB errors, easy fix! here is the resolution:
http://androidforums.com/htc-incredible/161946-how-install-froyo-2-2-ruu-simplest-instructions-ever-windows-xp-only-3.html#post1485682

additional errors any more specific will more than likely be resolved by doing a factory reset after completed installation of Froyo.
[i.e - camera issues, sluggish flash video/games, etc.]

There is a new version of Flash 10.1 that came out after Froyo.
com.adobe.flashplayer-1.apk
Download it there and install from your SD card.
reboot the phone and it clears up your choppy flash video!

Additional notes:

1. The first boot takes a bit longer than normal. stay calm. (no more than 2 minutes)
2. Go through the initial set up then reboot your phone one more time.
3. Next time you connect to your PC, its going to auto-run some stupid "VERIZON MOBILE" file for VCAST that the PC recognizes as a CD instead of a disk drive. you can ignore it. DO NOT HAVE TO DOWNLOAD.


4. i only needed HTC SYNC to put the contacts back on my phone.

5. i did *288 after about 20 minutes of the update for added measure.
it also went smoothly and only took about a minute and a half.

Also, you will not have root after this.

You will have to wait for them to root it.

A little more complicated method would be to flash the offical Rom and you would still have root, and if you use the Virtuous rom it will come with all the bloat ware removed.

You'll have to rename it to PB31IMG.zip, put it on the root of you sd card and flash from hboot.

I strongly suggest reading through that thread, some good info.

What does the Verizon mobile file popup install? Is it something that anyone would ever want? Provide any additional capabilities? The pop-up certainly isn't very descriptive.

Seems Vista works just fine, I read in another thread that someone has a Vista laptop and a 7 laptop and the Vista worked but the 7 didnt.

I am going to do this RUU here in about 5 minutes on an XP SP3 comp. Fingers crossed.

Tried it on XP SP3 and Windows 7 in XP compatibility and it gives the 170 on both.

UPDATE: Followed the instructions here: RUU error 170 & 171 solution for Windows 7

and it worked perfectly.

Start to finish took 4 minutes.

RUU error 170 & 171 solution for Windows 7
I have been trying to runn the RUU on my 64bit windows 7 pc for the last three days, at one point it finally saw my phone, connected and began running the ruu (I was excited) and then about 2 min later it again errored out!! at which point i never was able to get it to connect again!!! I installed HTC Sinc but it made NO Difference, I was so ******* frustrated!! ...

I downloaded cleaner as yo said, ran a full clean and then a registry clean after uninstalling the HTC Sinc software
I then re-installed HTC Sinc connected my phone to my pc, ran the RUU and (NO LUCK) ..... IT was getting hopeless for me and I was tired of waiting for the OTA update, not just because I wanted it, but my phone was acting quirky and was totally hoping that Froyo solved some minor issues....I almost gave up but I then re-started my PC, connected my phone, turned off wi-fi on my pc, eneabled USB Debugging, started the RUU and (BOOM) ...everything started to work....FINALLY!!! ..... I am now running Froyo :-) So thank you very very much... Your the man !!

i'm too stupid with a touch of ADD to get things right. I think i'll have to wait for OTA or i'll end up bricking my phone

But seriously. I even messed up a package of EASY Mac.

I must say, I'm as technologically illiterate as they come, but I CAN follow directions. I am also impatient. I did this, and it was easy as pie!! Thank you very very much! No longer will I have to wake up in the middle of the night and check my phone! FROYO has arrived!!

ruu is Rom Update Utility. this is how HTC has always delivered "shipped" (official) roms. its a one click .exe that walks you through setting up your phone for the update. you can be sure that this is just as official as the ota, just a different way of installing it.

win7 users may have problems but nothing bad will happen to your phone.
worst case you will get a connection error and your phone reboots normally.

why would you do it? well why wait for verizon to push it to you when you can just install it now?

There is a way to backup your apps before installing Froyo. This method will NOT save the application information and will NOT allow for updates from the Market, but if you've been avoiding updating an app due to bad reviews, you dont ever have to worry about it trying to update that app again!

TO SAVE YOUR APPS:
1. go to the market and download an app called "Astro File Manager."
2. once installed go to MENU > TOOLS > APPLICATION MANAGER/BACKUP
3. select the applications you want to save and click "backup."
(it saves it to a folder on your SD card called backups > apps as the traditional ".apk" file extension.)

---------------------
TO REINSTALL APPS AFTER FROYO UPDATE:
1. go to (phone) SETTINGS > Applications > ALLOW UNKNOWN SOURCES
2. go to the market and redownload "Astro File Manager."
3. find the "backups > apps" folder.
4. click the app you want to reinstall.
5. a dialogue box will open, select "Open App Manager."
6. top left hand corner is a button labled "install"
7. it will ask for confirmation, select "install" at the bottom.

rinse and repeat.
keep in mind that these installed apps are no longer connected to the market and will no longer update.

I am already running astro file manager but I did not know it did backups so I just did a complete backup of all my apps. So I would asume then my sdcard will not be over written when i do the 2.2 update.

Default Megaupload can suck a dick

Anyone got a link that either:

a) isn't going to cost me $9.99
or
b) downloads faster than 1KB a second and takes less than 50 hours?

I've hacked iPhones. I've rooted my moto droid. I've never had this problem before.

Louns, give me 10-15 minutes to upload it to another file hosting site.
megaupload has some terrible bandwidth, i know.

This post was long overdue, thanks very much for putting it together.

I wish someone would do one of these dummy guides for a few other things now and then, instead of expecting us to dig for pieces of a puzzle in a 140 page thread lol

thanks again!

I did not see an answer to the earlier question. What impact does this have on future updates? And, is the rue update complete, including radio?

win7 users may have problems but nothing bad will happen to your phone.
worst case you will get a connection error and your phone reboots normally.

why would you do it? well why wait for verizon to push it to you when you can just install it now?
as he put it, its just another way of installing the official update.
it should have no affect on the way you receive future updates.
the radio that comes with this specific update is, as far as ive learned, official as well.

official 2.2 runs on 2.15.00.07.28
which is the same baseband that comes with this 2.2 update!

i only read a little bit on that subject. that was during my worry about bricking my phone.

it seems to be a more complicated process requiring another RUU and possibly root. my eyes are about to fall out of my head from all the reading ive done.


i found a couple of threads on here that talk all about it:

revert from 2.2 and ota to 2.1 using a nand backup?

How to revert back to an earlier version of HBOOT


but this one talks about doing a factory reset WITH 2.2 installed to clear up a lot of issues.


Reverting back to 2.1 from 2.2 - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum


is it possible?
yes

but it also seems to be a pain in the ass.

True, can you please elaborate on this?

I get what you are saying, but, the fact that ALL my apps will no longer update automatically after being restored in this way is a deal-breaker for me...

What about using AppBrain to restore the apps? Will that preserve the links to the market? I use both ASTRO and AppBrain.

Thanks, kj

Matt, what is the exact size of the RUU you downloaded? the file hosting sites list it as 178.16 mb while after downloaded it should be 182,434 KB
lets try a couple of simple methods first:

first: in the folder where you have the RUU saved, do the following:
1. go to View > Details
does the size read 182,434 KB?

-if not, delete the RUU you have and try downloading it again from one of the other file hosting sites.


second
: dont use htc sync immediately. just mount as a disk drive and do not sync.

last: in the same folder where you have the RUU stored:
1. Tools > Folder Options > View > UNCHECK "Hide Extensions for Known File Types"
2. go back to the RUU and make sure it reads ".exe" at the end.
you could try removing the ".exe" which windows will tell you could make it unstable, then go right back and add it again.

does it open correctly now?





KJ, ive never used AppBrain before. however i do understand how it could be a deal breaker. the reason that the apps dont update anymore is because the market is where devs release their updates. when you back up your .apk's and reinstall them from the SD card, theyre no longer linked to the market because they are now considered "third party."

i was trying to come up with a good analogy but i cant think of one.
getting updates for your apps is like fishing in the lake where devs release new fish ever so often. with your fishing pole permanently in that lake looking for new fish, you'll continue to receive new fish when devs release them.

backing up your apps and having them not be updated is like taking the fish you caught and fishing for them in your bathtub. theyre not part of "Lake Update" anymore, and because theyre not linked, they'll never change. never update.

make sense?

its more just for convenience. if you already have all your apps updated, then you just have to worry about redownloading all of them again. no biggie. but say theres an app youve been avoiding updating because of bad reviews (which happens), this is a way to lock your app in as the version you prefer.

correct.
this is the unofficial way to receive the official update.
everything is the same as the OTA.

i wouldnt yell it out loud to verizon customer support if you call or go in though.
because if they dont know how to fix your problem, i guarantee they'll come back and say its your fault for installing the update yourself.
even though that is entirely incorrect.

but to calm your nerves, all the software numbers match up exactly.
so rest assured, its legit.
