Default Updated to 2.2 - now WAV files not playable?

This morning, I updated to 2.2. I use Touchdown to receive Exchange email. Our firm voicemail system sends us voicemail as .wav attachments to email. Everything worked fine yesterday, but now I get an error message when I try to play the wav file.

The default media player says it cannot play the file. I then downloaded MixZing and it also gives me an error and can't play the file. Other types of email attachments (e.g., word files) still seem to work fine.

Any ideas?

Our lab's phone system does that with me as well, I have not ever been able to play the .wav files that our phone system sends to me. In 2.1 it would give me the option to play it with an app I had that made ringtones or the player. It just simply fails to play with a "cannot play" or something and only selects the stock player.

I know you've all heard it a thousand times but Im new to this stuff so this may sound like a dumb question. I did the manual update and it worked fine and I thank you for it but when the OTA comes out for me will I still have the choice to do it that way even though I already did this? Like will it show up for me even though I already have 2.2?

There should be another update to correct the issues that are present with this update. From what has been said (you can see Trident's alert about this in the very first post in this thread), Verizon pulled this update.

Do not open the zip file or extract any files. Keep the name "update.zip" and transfer it to the highest level folder on the SD card.

Honestly, at this point, you might as well wait for the official OTA. It's gonna roll out very soon and ironically all of us who installed early will be getting that build too so this effort equates to a geeky sneak preview. LOL

However, if you're feeling adventurous just follow the excellent instructions on the first page of this thread. Screen shots even! Where it says 'Astro' use Estrongs instead. Enjoy 2.2. It's a definite improvement.

Install of froyo went fine, however apps seem to want to open themselves randomly even after they have already been killed using advanced task killer (for ex, twidroyd keeps re-opening itself.) is there any known fix for this or will FRG22 be addressing issues such as this one?

Red face Force close problems (email)...

Just manually updated and love it! The internet is super fast and i'm surprised that no one mentioned the new layout to Facebook and MMS ( i haven't gotten too far into it yet).

Anyway, i had installed a keyboard from droid-life.net (the droid x's multi touch one) and that forced closed literally every second until i could disable it (not using it isn't that big of a deal) but the Email (not the Gmail one) will stop unexpectedly as soon as i open it. Any help???

I did the update and it went well even with the known E:Error. Maybe it is just me or my phone but it seems like everything has slowed way down. This seems odd since Froyo was supposed to make the phone faster... Am I the only one seeing this? I do use Launcher Pro and am wondering if that is what is causing the problem. I'll be trying using the stock home page some and see if it improves but as it is I wish I hadn't made the switch. Fortunantly I just got the phone (I'm a recent winmo convert) and am within my 30 days and may trade it for an X if the new update doesn't fix this.

Hi! Just registered, I updated and everything went well. the locked screen doesn't look different (I don't know if it is supposed to.) Also, I can't download anything from the market. Not over 3G or WiFi. It just says infinite Starting Download...

I don't know what to do. If anyone could help out that would be great.

Hey everyone, I could use a little help. I was able to manual update my Droid to 2.1.update1 some time ago, but I cannot do it now. I simply can't get into recovery mode. I hold down the 'X' key while I'm booting, and it just freezes on the "m" logo. When I pull the battery out and boot normally, it boots perfectly fine.

I can get into safe mode, oddly enough.

Any ideas on how to fix this. This is a stock OS, 2.1.update1. NOT ROOTED.

Thank you for all this wonderful info! Hopefully someone will have an idea to help me out. Waiting for Verizon to get around to me sucks.....

I have been waiting for this update for about 5 months now. Mainly for the wifi hotspots and flash player. So I could hardly contain myself when I found I could bypass the waiting and manual update. Now I have the update and no wifi hotspots and no flash? Am I missing something?

Ok, i've read every post about 10.1 not playing but no one has actually answered the problem. Should I try to reinstall or wait. It says that I have 10.1 and adobe Showcase but when I go to Adobe's site to open the flashplayer it says that the information cannot be found.

Hey Trident,

First off thanks for the help (Thank applied), but I have a couple questions. The install of the 2.0.1 from the sbf file went fine, but the 2.1 forced update failed, so went back to 2.0.1 for now so I can have a working phone.

Also, the v2.0.1 sbf install has some unusual features. It has the 2.1 lock screen (I verified that I am running 2.0.1), unless I have forgotten that the newer lock screen was in 2.0.1... And it seems to be the fastest, snappiest my phone has ever been. Is this v2.0.1 sbf that you linked for me for a stock version?

VZW_A855_ESD56_QSC6085BP_C_01.3E.01P_SW_UPDATE_03. sbf

Also, is there a reliable sbf file for v2.1? EDIT: nm, found it on the guide to all thins root page. Is that a good one?

Thanks.

ATTENTION: Motorola and Verizon have found issue with this OTA update and it is rumored that there will be another next week. For those who have already installed this, don't freak out, you will be able to install the new update right over this one. For those who have not already installed this, it's probably best to wait until next week. Stay tuned for more information..

Can we still install the over the air update when we get it if we use this update?

Not sure if it got answered but this is to DLM, you need something like astro file manager. Then in the setting for Astro you can enable all browser downloads. This will all you to DL the file then you can turn it back off since it does create some issues with gmail attachments.

From everything i have read and looked into yes the process we are doing here is the same as if you would have troubles and called support they would walk you through manually applying the update. This is also how they would do it in the store if you went there for it. When the new update comes there will more than likely be two versions since VZW has already pushed this to some users. Then again they may just make everyone download the full update again.

Default Issue with Music App

Installed 2.2 yesterday, loving it so far. Except that all the music files I have are no longer showing up in the Music app. If I go into my file manager and select a song that way it plays, but none of the song title/artist/album info shows up, and it does not remain in my library in the app. Anyone know what the deal is?

I installed. Yea there are some bugs for sure. My Droid does not run faster, seems to freeze a lot now. Ill swipe the screen to move left of right and the response stinks to say the least.
Is anyone else having issues with the gallery?
My videos that worked perfect on 2.1 now do not work. Some do not play at all. Others show the thumbnail of the video but its looks like a VCR tape being fast forwarded. Is this happening to anyone else. I tried removing them and putting them back on but that does not work. Did they change the format or something?
Any advice?

No. Wi-Fi hotspot is not supported at this time. We know it can work, but someone made a decision to exclude the feature from this release. Perhaps Verizon did not want to field the inevitable complaints about battery life. USB tethering is supported, but Verizon detects use of this feature and points you to a page that indicates that it will cost you $20 per month for up to 2 GB.

Flash was not included in the release, and currently it is not available via the Market either. You can find links to the Beta 3 version of Flash here on the forum. I installed it, and it works great.

I'm also running LauncherPro (Love it btw!) with 7 home screens and 3 docks but I'm seeing clear speed improvements in 2.2. Have you rebooted since the initial install of 2.2?

Yes and yes. When the official build is pushed out this version we're running will be recognized as an earlier version of 2.2 and will be replaced with the latest version being pushed. The build we're running is a legitimate build not a hack so this is not a big deal. However, if you haven't 'force installed' it yet IMO you might as well just wait for the official push since it's easier and will surely start any day now.

Also once you're in Car Dock mode you're restricted to the applications they present, hitting Home key takes you back to the Car Home app instead of your Home screen(s). The Car Home Settings should be called Car Home SettING because there's only one actual setting, whether to display the annoying "Don't use your device while driving" warning.
I have to withdraw my gripe. After using the car dock some more, I get it now. Key point is that the screen doesn't LOCK it just goes dim so a touch wakes the display up. This is actually quite nice for night driving since I keep my brightness at 100%. The only trick is learning where the 'sweet spots' are on your apps so that you don't trigger any actions when waking up the screen. Oh! and the screen does NOT dim when using Navigation and Nav is displayed on the screen which is a good implementation. If Nav is running in the background and another app is in focus, the screen will still dim.

How'd you get it to work? I tried to voice dial with my Jawbone last night and couldn't figure it out.

Well when i swipe between screens it is laggy and sometimes freezes. Hitting an app to open it sometimes takes a few hits.
Some of the videos in my gallery no longer work, the thumbnails look like a vcr tape being fast forwarded and take forever to load. Overall the phone is just slower.
The net is no faster then it was on 2.1.
To say disappointed would be an understatement. And no tether...what a joke
I waited for 10+months for this?
Now it could be the phone. I just received a refurbished phone from VZW yesterday but it worked great for hours before I did this update.
I hate to say it but I should have just waited for the OTA, but then you cant count on them too since I hear VZW is pulling that one as well. I have build FRG01B and I would strongly recommend not installing it, unless there's something I missing.

ATTENTION: Motorola and Verizon have found issue with this OTA update and it is rumored that there will be another next week. For those who have already installed this, don't freak out, you will be able to install the new update right over this one. For those who have not already installed this, it's probably best to wait until next week. Stay tuned for more information..

----------------------------------------


This thread explains how to force the official Android 2.2 Froyo update to your Motorola Droid. It is made up of two guides. You will have the option of choosing to install the update with either the use of your computer or completely on your Droid. Both methods have been tested thoroughly and work perfectly. With both methods, it is highly recommended that go slowly and read through the entire guide before you begin. It should take no longer than 10 minutes to follow each guide all the way through.

For information about what exactly is included in this update, please see the official release document.


Warning:
-Do not attempt to install this to anything other than the Motorola Droid.
-If you are running anything other than stock 2.1, you will receive an error.
-If you attempt to apply this update with a custom ROM installed, the update will NOT apply.

*You CAN apply this with SPRecovery or Clockwork.

Disclaimer: By continuing, you understand that neither Android Forums nor myself can be held liable for any damage caused to your phone while following a guide included this thread. You do this at your own risk. No exchanges, substitutions, or refunds.

The Guides (Choose One):
-How to install the update with the use of your computer (PC or Mac)
-How to install the update entirely on your Droid without the use of a computer (OTA)


Special Thanks To...
-LarryR for the update.zip file
-Nexeo.net, Polarix, StrifeJester, wee_ag, johnlgalt, blong4life, Inphosys and Dev-Mob for file hosting
-NickMili - without his help we would'nt have this. He provided the semblance of a file name that led us to the correct file on Google's servers.
Guys,

One question, I'm getting an error during the installation, my phone shows:

E:failed to verify whole-file signature
E:signature verification failed
Installation aborted.

I've also seen some index where it's recommended to download the file again, but I tried to do so (from 3 different links) and the issue is still reproducible. Do you have any other idea?

Thanks a lot!

I found a bug. I guess its a bug or just the app. will need an update for this new version.
WiFi Analyzer no longer can produce the audio, if you have the audio set to "on"
No biggy I guess, although I use that "audio" feature a lot. Hopefully an update will be pushed shortly when this new version gets released.

Also over all my Droid has slowed down. Really notice it while browsing now.

FWIW, I had a VERY similar issue when 2.1 came out. I tried a manual update, tried letting OTA do it, tried doing a factory wipe (THREE TIMES!). I took it in to the local VZW store, they tried and couldn't get it. They had me call Motorola, I explained what was tried and their answer was to go back to Verizon and have them exchange the phone. Exchanged the phone and all went well for updating.

For anyone getting errors similar to the one below, you MAY need to have your phone exchanged.

yeh, just hook your phone to your computer, mess around a bit, click view files, whatever. eventually you will see that all your songs are still on your sd card or at least should be. AFter that, just unplug your droid and the songs should magically appear.
