Arrow [How-To] Force the Official Android 2.2 Froyo Update for the Motrola Droid (FRG01B | Update 1 of 2)

Froyo Update 1 of 2:

Another OTA update (FRG22) will be coming soon. In order to install it, you must have the update from this thread (FRG01B) installed first.
--------------------------------


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.

Arrow Here's how to install the update with the use of your computer (PC or Mac):

What You'll Need:
- A MicroSD Card inserted into your Droid
- A USB Data Cable

1. Download the update.zip File:
-To begin, you will first need to download the update.zip file and save it to your computer.
-You will need to have file extensions showing if you should have to rename the file, otherwise you will effectively name the file update.zip.zip. This is what causes errors with the instillation. When extensions aren't on, it assumes that anything you type in for the file name should go before the extension. Both Windows and OSX have options for this in Explorer and Finder respectively. Configuring this setting should, however, not be necessary since the file will already come downloaded to you bearing the proper name by default, so do not rename the file!

Important: If you are a Mac user using the Safari browser, you’ll need to do the following before downloading the file:
- Open Safari
- Navigate to "Safari" and then choose "Preferences"
- Choose the "General" tab
- Uncheck "Open Safe Files After Downloading"

Download locations:
Location 1 | My Droid Does [Tested and Verified!]
Location 2 | Dev-Mob [Tested and Verified!]
Location 3 | Nexeo.net [Tested and Verified!]
Location 4 | MegaUpload [Tested and Verified!]
Location 5 | Media Fire [Tested and Verified!]
Location 6 | brandonlong.me [Tested and Verified!]
Location 7 | igacek.com [Tested and Verified!]
Location 8 | strifejester.com [Tested and Verified!]
Location 9 | adkgraphicdesign.com [Tested and Verified!]

2. Mount Your MicroSD Card:
Connect your Droid to a compter via USB. You will be notified that there is a USB connection. Drag down the notification panel and select “USB connected.”


You will now be presented with an option to mount your phone; do so at this time by selecting “Mount.”


This will turn your Droid into a mass storage device. You will now need to open the folder which contains all of the files on your Droid's MicroSD card. Here's how:
- PC: Your computer should automatically recognize it and an auto-run popup should appear. Select “Open folder to view files” and it will open the folder containing all of the files on your Droid’s MicroSD card.
- Mac: A drive entitled "No Name" should now automatically appear on your desktop. Double click the drive and it will open a folder containing all of the files on your Droid's MicroSD card.

4. Transfer the update.zip to your MicroSD Card:
Now, drag the update.zip file that you previously downloaded to your computer onto the MicroSD card folder that you just opened. After the file has finished transferring to your MicroSD card, close the folder and continue to the next step.

3. Unmount Your MicroSD Card:
Slide down the notification panel and select “Turn off USB storage.”


An option will then popup allowing you to “Turn Off”–select this now.

If you haven’t closed the SD Card folder on your computer, the window should close automatically once you turn off USB storage.

4. Prepare for the Update:
Once you have unmounted the phone, it is now time to prepare the Droid to perform the update. You will be accessing Recovery Mode to do this. Start by powering down the phone completely.

While holding “X” on the physical keyboard, hold the power button to turn on the phone. You may let go of the power button, but do not let go of X.


After a few seconds, an Exclamation Mark icon will appear. You may now let go of X. To access Recovery Mode from the exclamation mark icon, hold the volume up button and then press the camera button.


5. Perform the Update:
You will then open a text menu with four options. Using the directional pad, navigate to “apply sdcard:update.zip” and push the gold, center button to select it.


The update process will begin immediately and should take no longer than a minute or two. It will let you know when the process is complete.

If you get E:signtature verification failed, you have a bad download. Just download again. The servers are probably getting hammered right now!

You might get this error:
Code:
E:Can't open /cache/recovery/command
DON'T worry about it... it just blows right past it and installs fine.


From here, navigate to “reboot system now” and select it. Your phone will shut off and reboot.

Some users are reporting a longer than usual boot time after installing this, be patient and do not be alarmed, this is normal.

If you're having issues after your first boot, do a battery pull.

6. Congratulations!
Your Droid has now been updated to the official Android 2.2 Froyo release! If you have any questions, comments, or concerns what so ever, please post them to this thread. I will be closely monitoring this thread to provide assistance to those who need it.

ENJOY!

Arrow Here's how to install the update entirely on your Droid without the use of a computer (OTA):

What You'll Need:
- A MicroSD Card inserted into your Droid
- An Internet Connection

1. Install Astro File Manager:
Install Astro File Manager for free from the Android Market if you don’t already have it.

(Scanning this QR code will take you to the Android Market listing for Astro File Manager.)

2. Download the update.zip file to your phone:
Download the update.zip file from one of the following locations directly from the internet to your phone:

Location 1 | My Droid Does [Tested and Verified!]


Location 2 | Dev-Mob [Tested and Verified!]


Location 3 | Nexeo.net [Tested and Verified!]


Location 4 | MegaUpload [Tested and Verified!]


Location 5 | Media Fire [Tested and Verified!]


Location 6 | brandonlong.me [Tested and Verified!]


Location 7 | igacek.com [Tested and Verified!]


Location 8 | strifejester.com [Tested and Verified!]


Location 9 | adkgraphicdesign.com [Tested and Verified!]


(Scanning the QR codes from above will automatically begin the download from its respective location.)

3. Move the update.zip file to the root of your SD card:
To move the update.zip to the root of your SD card, do the following:
- Open Astro File Manager
- Enter the Downloads folder
- Press and hold on the update.zip file
- Select "Edit" and then "Copy"
- Now press the "Astro Up" button once which will take the root directory
- Press the "Astro Edit" button followed by "Paste"
The update.zip file should now be in the root directory.

4. Prepare for the Update:
It is now time to prepare the Droid to perform the update. You will be accessing Recovery Mode to do this. Start by powering down the phone completely.

While holding “X” on the physical keyboard, hold the power button to turn on the phone. You may let go of the power button, but do not let go of X.


After a few seconds, an Exclamation Mark icon will appear. You may now let go of X. To access Recovery Mode from the exclamation mark icon, hold the volume up button and then press the camera button.

No need to be renamed. As long as you got it from one of MY download locations!

Trident: can you, or another mod, confirm that the update installs without issue and works fine? I think that's what a lot of us are waiting to hear.

Are we sure this doesn't work with SPRecovery? I have the stock, unrooted 2.1 ROM installed.

If you're having issues after your first boot, do a battery pull.

if you get E:signtature verification failed its a bad download. Just download again. The servers are probably getting hammered right now

Someone should post the md5 for the file; so we can verify before copying. But none the less installing now.

I hope this isn't a stupid question but ...

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.

Does that mean that if I'm on 2.1-update 1 and I'm rooted I cannot use this?

As long as you do not have a custom ROM, go right ahead. 2.1-update1 is the code name for stock 2.1.
