Default [How-To] Force the Official Android 2.2 Froyo Update for the Motrola Droid (FRG22D | Update 2 of 2)

Froyo Update 2 of 2:


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


This thread explains how to force the 2nd 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 2.2, FRG01B, 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...
-NickMili for the update.zip file
-Trident for the guide format.

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

1. Download the zip File:
-To begin, you will first need to download the signed-voles-FRG22D-from-FRG01B.688e3520.zip
file and save it to your computer.
-You have to rename the file to update.zip
-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.[/B]

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:
https://android.clients.google.com/updates/voles/signed-voles-FRG22D-from-FRG01B.688e3520.zip

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!

Works.
Sad to think that this might be the last (non-rooted) update the D1 might get.

I'm gonna try this in a bit, but I'm curious, once you flash this, are you able to grab flash from the market as stated in the PDF?

I just installed the update and it went fine.

As with the first 2.2 update, you may have to uninstall Swype and reinstall for it to work again. Swype didn't work after the update. It works fine after I uninstalled and reinstalled it.

I un-rooted before I applied the second update - which appears to be working great, much better than the first, and I did find flash in the market.

After I updated, I attempted to root again using Easy Root but it wouldn't work. Anyone else experience this?

I am also using Easy Root and it no longer works. I installed the update using ClockworkRecovery through ROM Manager while rooted and then did a factory reset. Easy Root still says I am rooted, but no root programs seem to agree, though I still have a Superuser Permissions icon in my app drawer (it doesn't do anything though).

I attempted to do the "Force Re-root" menu option in Easy Root, and it claimed to work, but was not successful in reality as all my root-required apps still tell me I am not rooted. I emailed the Easy Root dev to see if he has any insights.

I should've just stuck with my Bugless Beast rather than checking out this update!

Good instructions, quick and easy. Any major changes from the old 2.2 to this, other then Flash availability now, I had already installed flash from appbrain.

Edit: Now that I look flash is not in the market.

Fast, Easy & Fun. I just needed to re-install Swype. OS seems more responsive too.

Sad frustrated

I did everything, it went exactly as stated, however, after it rebooted it says it is build number FRG01B still. Kernel version 2.6.32.9-g103d848 android-build@apa26#1. What did I do wrong? This is what it was before.

I'm guessing there's a chance that you didn't place the new update.zip file in the root directory or maybe didn't delete the old one so you thought the new one was there. Just a thought.


The update worked great for me. New flash player available, downloaded and installed.

However, the new update did not fix the corporate exchange acct info that I and others had been having. Guess I'll have to keep using touchdown for now.

For those interested in root. Some of our older root methods still work and the method for Rooting the Droid 2 works (its pretty easy if you have adb setup) I will probably put a guide on it together sometime over the weekend although I am sure the 1 click methods will be updated by then

Maybe, but one of the purposes of this update was to close the one click root security hole.

The update worked great for me. New flash player available, downloaded and installed.

However, the new update did not fix the corporate exchange acct info that I and others had been having. Guess I'll have to keep using touchdown for now.
I did move it as in step 3. I just did a search in the astro file manager for update and found only the one dated today in /mnt/sdcard/update.zip and /mnt/sdcard/download/update.zip. I really appreciate any help. Thank you starcr250! OK, I have did it all again except this time I used the computer and downloaded the file that way and did as instructed. Now it finally says FRG22D. Thanks for listening to the rambling!

Weird. I'm not sure how that method works. It was reported that this update would fix the udev bug used by one click root: CVE - CVE-2009-1185 (under review)

Maybe the droid 2 method does it a different way. It will be interesting to see how this plays out then. I was looking forward to this update so my droid would be more secure.

I haven't had a chance to really look at the bin file from the d2 method but I read something about it basically being exploid backwards/reversed. I'm not quite sure how it works but I tihnks its very similar to the original exploid

Just manually upgraded using method 2 and went without a hitch...as did the first manual update thanks to androidforums!

Also, I ran Quadrant and where I was getting 780-810 before I just got an 878. I am not sure if this is meaningful, though, with such a relatively minor update.

Haven't checked for flash in the market cause I am pretty sure I already have the most recent version installed already.

THANKS!

EDIT: It looks like RageAgainstTheCage takes advantage of a bug in adb, and isn't related to exploid. One click root probably won't be back then, at least not any time soon.

Thanks for this - now I can finally refer people to this thread instead of telling them to get the file and then follow the original thread lol...

Is anybody getting a pop up when you try to download the update that says there are problems with the security certificates of the site? Im getting this and I am not sure if I should proceed or not.

You can also get root back by following the instructions here. Relatively easy process and it's nothing more than using rsdlite to flash sprecovery and then flashing an update.zip

3. Rename the file to update.zip.

3. Move the update.zip file to the root of your SD card:

4. Prepare for the Update:

5. Perform the Update:

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!
I keep getting 'Download unsuccessful' is this because the servers are getting hit hard?

I just checked and it worked fine for me although I am using a computer and not the droid.

Do you have astro installed like the guide says?

Default Bug fixes?

Can someone report on whether the update fixes known issues like wifi and battery use.

Thanks.
