if this stock 2.2 is NOT rootable you find, I would pass on this, then root, then do a 2.2 ROM. but if you find it is still rootable and the bootloader is not locked down, I might just go this route since future rooting would still be possible.

I'll wait for the answer to this before I do anything.

Default Apologies for the Noob question...

I read all the posts above, but didn't see any information of this question.
If you are currently rooted, using stock 2.1, and you update, will this maintain your root privileges or no?
Thanks to everyone for making this happen!

Apps Installer force closes after the update - but otherwise it's looking sweet.

Chances are since you're rooted that the install will fail but if it did update yes you would lose root. If you still want root and want this update go to the link below. **Note this is not an update to your current phone, this is a fresh install that will require a wipe and only for root users**

I got the OTA upgrade to Froyo about 1:00am on my HTC Evo this morning. It is cool. Adobe 10.1 flash, faster, battery saver, save apps to SD, and a whole lot of other background issues just to name a few. I am tethered to it now as I am sending this on my PC.

Got flash up and running. Install this file ON YOUR COMPUTER and then mount your phone and install the .apk. Works flawlessly.

I also got flash working. I copied this apk: com.adobe.flashplayer-3.apk to my phone, and installed, and it just worked. Dunno if Jea2004's file is the same...

Opening update package...

Installing update...
Verifying current system...
Removing unneeded files...
Patching system files...
Patching boot image...
Unpacking new files...
Unpacking new recovery...
Symlinks and permissions...
Writing RDL/BP image...

Install from sdcard complete.
Then my Android system recovery said <2e>... not sure what version it was before.

"Patching boot image..." <-- hope i can still root if i want to... (did i once, but decided to undo it so i'm not too concerned)

Took about 3 minutes to boot to lock screen then ran a little slow...

i'll update more as i use it.

UPDATE (1):
Just noticed that it changed the color of the line next to my emails (the color code so you can tell what email is from what account)

UPDATE (2):
Seems that calendar and corporate calendar have been merged... Note: if you have problems with Exchange, clear your cache and reboot.

UPDATE (3):
Vibrate function seems to have a problem... To fix this go into your sound settings, change the vibrate setting, then change it back... seems to reset the hiccup and make it work.

UPDATE (4):
Messenger app now has white background instead of the black background and has the user's facebook image (or a standard android image) next to each message (wish you could turn this off and set the background back to the black...)

Ok so first thank you for the update.zip.

One issue I'm having. After I move and App to the SD card, the apps work but the icons don't show up on the homescreen or in my launcher anymore.

Also, just preference, I actually liked the black theme for messaging and GTalk, any way to go back?

I just got the OTA update on my HTC Evo and am tethered to it now. It is great, fast, ADOBE 10.1 Flash, Apps to SD, Battery saver, Lighting for camcorder just to name a few benefits, not to mention all of the background improvements.

Thanks, I didn't really want to do a full ROM install, just looking to update. Oh well, I didn't use root all that often so I guess I can wait until something easier pops up or this.

I'm having the same problem, but only with some apps. Some still show up and others don't. I'm guessing it's a problem with the application. But, that's a guess.

I'm having an issue with my Exchange connection not working. I'm not receiving any emails and the calendar hasn't updated. I can access the site from my phone just not pushing emails to me.

If your application is a widget, installing it on the SD card breaks the widget. I think it's not even supposed to let you move it in that case, but, it could be a bug.

You can just uninstall swype and then reinstall it. It is just one of those things but know big deal. It will be fine when you reinstall it.

Just so everyone knows, I had to take some extra precautions to make sure it was a legit file.

1: I am part of the Motorola VCQ private study, and we were told in there that we would get an early release version when it came out - so I wanted to make sure this was not hiding any hidden secrets that would later get me in trouble.

2: I am running Pete's BB 0.4, so I was shocked I actually got the notification.

3: I was communicating with OMJ via email this whole time about the file, even sent him a screen capture of the update notification from Settings --> About phone -> System Updates

4: I was also at school trying to get a bunch of stuff done - classes for my Master's program start 16th and half of our classes aren't even in the system for us to register for....

5: Uploading was taking so long from the school servers that I quit and came home to do it much much faster.

6: I have now verified that the OTA update I got was the same as the ones posted elsewhere, and have provided a faster alternate link (via MedaiFire) to Trident.

Happy updating, everyone!

ahh, i think it was only the calendar prompt i got... haven't had any problem... if it continues for you, i guess i'd suggest removing and re-adding the account...

haven't gotten a phone call yet, but i'll try that out.

UPDATE: Mine didn't vibrate either.... hmm

UPDATE(2): Go into your sound settings, select vibrate, select only when not in silent mode, go back into vibrate, select only in silent mode. That sort of reset it and now it works for me.

well, I know you could go to Market and freely download "tAttachApkInstaller" and then you could email it to your gMail account, and then from there you can actually install it.

You fixed my no vibration problem. I tried re-adding my exchange account and doesn't like it. I see the phone hitting the Exchange server but its not liking it.

I'll wait for the answer to this before I do anything.
Based on what I just read that someone else posted who flashed the update with spr I dont think it flashes the bootloader but I dont think we will know until someone tries the update then tries to root it

Or a dev examines it closely. I took a quick look at file names and saw mbm which is the bootloader

No. It is a closed Beta. Don't ask, the mods here will get itchy trigger fingers.

Build number: FRG01B
Not yet - I am already running Bugless Beast (which is why I was worried at getting an update notification) so I ahve nto installed it yet. I am betting, though, that it is since the original file name (in my phone cache) is e48e48ff4252.signed-voles-FRG01B-from-ESE81.zip

Because it introduces a stable version of the Just In Time compiler, which adds a whole new dimension of speedieness to our phones, among other things.

If you check out the other thread, you'll see Trident's link for all the changes.

I made Pete aware of the file, he's got it now and is working on rooting it, and will keep us posted via Twitter.

Won't that be a good time. I think I'll stick with the clean 2.2 build that Pete posted for now. I doubt there's any difference between that and the official OTA update. I don't particularly wish to lose root at this point. Too many useful programs require it.

Sweet. I hope he's successful. Options are always a good thing.

Pete's got this version of the file already and is working on rooting it. Sit tight.

So very impressive. I wish I had the skillset to work on this stuff. I'm a software engineer but this stuff definitely is a different world than what I work on. The clean 2.2 build that was posted seems to work well for me. I've only had some minor weird issues that clearing the cache seems to have fixed for now. (Exchange email was telling me it couldn't contact the server....cleared the cache, rebooted, all is well again.) But root is something at this point I don't want to give up. It took me long enough to take the plunge and now I'm quite well addicted to it.

All right so the issue with icons from apps that were moved to SD have been resolved. Just re-add them to the homescreen from the launcher.

But I really don't like the 2.2 messaging app. Any way to get the options from the 2.1 messaging app, i.e., picture not showing up on every single text! and black background.

Its very possible I just never saw this before, as I've only been using Picassa for a couple weeks, but I now have my Picassa picture folders showing up in Gallery. Is that new to 2.2? Or was I just oblivious to it before?

Thanks for the flash download! Works great now! I love that I'm now finally able to select and copy text in gmail.

I have googled different variations of pete, bugless, beast, bb, etc and cannot find a twitter page that looks like it is actually ever updated by him. Could you possibly post the direct link to his twitter page so that we may be able to keep up on any progress he may or may not be making in rooting Froyo?

Thanks,
Kratos
