Talking Video! Gingerbread OTA update! Is my Android phone ready?

Gingerbread OTA update! Is my Android phone ready?

Any customizing of your phone can hurt it! Complete at your own risk.

Wonder if your Android phone is ready for an Over The Air (OTA) update? People keep asking varying questions about this OTA.

The Droid Charge is about to get an update from Froyo to Gingerbread. I made this vid to help answer questions about the process helping you make sure your phone is ready.

Developer Imnuts provided a great “how to” for preparing your phone if you are running anything but stock. Backup first as this will erase your phone!

With the release of the source code for Gingerbread, it seems that Verizon has finally accepted a gingerbread build for the DROID Charge. Since many people are running a custom ROM, you won't be able to get the official OTA, especially if you're mixing the ROM, Kernel, and Modem versions. This will give people a quick "how-to" for being able to accept the OTA update. The biggest reason for this would be to get the official modems, as well as being able to get a system dump and stock kernel. NOTE: This process will wipe all of your user data and reset everything back to stock. Backup your data prior to following this guide. I am not responsible for any problems you encounter when following this guide. Do all of this at your own risk.
Download Odin and the EE4 Factory Image
Reboot your phone into Download Mode (power off, then plug in the USB cable attached to your computer while holding in the volume down button)
Open up Odin and make sure that your phone is detected, if not, unplug your phone and plug it back in. Only one COM port should show up yellow in Odin. Also, ensure that your battery is in before flashing.
Extract the *.7z file that you downloaded for the EE4 Odin file so that it is a .tar.md5 file
Click on PDA in Odin, and browse to the freshly extracted .tar.md5
Uncheck the F. Time Reset Box and Re-Partition box, leave the Restart box checked. Do not check/uncheck any other boxes.

I think they update phones completely randomly just to mess with people like us.

Considering I've waited months for an update, I can wait a few days more I suppose.
