I've posted this on the sdx forum, but I think I posted this in a thread which has gotten lost in a pool of VM Intercept users interested in updating their carrier's Intercepts to 2.2. This thread is exactly on topic with my problem. I'm going to copy and paste a bit from my other post. This is sort of a hybrid-semi-quasi-cross-posting so anyone who's seen the sdx posting, please be patient with me. :-)

I got the 2.2 update OTA, but it failed. Subsequently, I downloaded the 2.2 update zip, booted into recover mode, attempted to install the zip, but was unable to do so. Everything goes fine up to a point where it appears to be looking for the Sprint Zone app to patch. I had uninstalled previously the Sprint Zone app by going into temporary root with z4 (i've never done permanent root) and deleted that app along with Nascar and Amazon mp3. Upon next reboot, I found an apk of the Sprint Zone app and installed it even though I found it in another forum for another phone and the program is old, perhaps a version released in July? Sprint is my carrier.

I did a backup of my files prior to deleting the system files, but apparently I didn't something wrong or the backup failed because I the system files are not in the backup, only the apk's I installed myself. It looks like there are problems with not having the original system apps

Does anyone know where I can download the original Sprint Intercept system files? Or anyone willing to post a backup of their own? :-D I guess more importantly, will this even help me? I think even if the OTA update comes through again, the update will fail in the same way since I no longer have those files.

Thanks for any help!

No, I'm trying to get to 2.2.

What happens is that before trying to install the 2.2 file I clear the cache partitions and then wipe the device, so when 2.2 tries to install it gets hung up saying it can't locate system/apps/GTALK because it's no longer stock.. it was installed from a .APK file. I accidentally deleted it during a temp root. Whooops! My bad.

I'm kinda stuck.. hahaha.

This is your thread. Everything here applies to you. You're having the exactly same problem I did, so just follow the instructions in the previous posts (Pasta's or mine) and you're golden. You're gonna have to wipe your phone and restore it to stock, then install the update.

This is EXACTLY the problem I have to a T... except that mine is Talk, not Sprint Zone.

Should we edit an earlier post to make it easier for folks to understand that the answers are already here, or did you understand and were just hoping there was a simpler way? I'm not being sarcastic, so please don't think that.

Nope.. I just wanted to make absolute SURE that this was going to work for my situation. :-) No sarcasm detected.

Only problem is, when I run the SWUpdate and get to the part where it's supposed to start copying files, it says "Cannot open bin file!"

I've followed your instructions (which are awesome, BTW) twice but for the life of me I can't figure out what's happened.

The bin error means you have the wrong version of swupdate. Adamtrott had the same problem. We struggled with it for hours before he figured it out.

I'm uploading the right one to Mediafire right now for you. Please check back in a moment.

Edit: Here's the link!

Please let us know how it goes, and sorry I didn't mention it in the instructions (glad you like them!). I'd hoped Adam's case was a fluke.

Anyone having GPS issues since update to 2.2? Mine will not lock on location now and I can't use either navigation (google or sprint). Anybody else see this?

Billkwando... (wow. I think I suddenly developed a slight case of dyslexia. I beg your forgiveness for the terrible misspelling!!)

It is people like you who make the world of do-it-yourself-ing cell updates possible. Thank you for taking time out of your Sunday to help me figure out how to put 2.2 on my Intercept. I'd love to send you a Christmas ham... hahaha ;-)

Let's wait till it works first! I'm actually pretty new to this whole cell phone thing, but I do really like helping people. Need drivers for a homemade H-shifter controller for driving games? Got an old EZbus digital mixer you can't find the install files for? Need to hook your Rock Band instruments up to your computer? Need to use your Steel Battalion controller on PC? I'm your guy!

Currently downloading the SWUpdate software you linked to. Is the patch that I found over at SDX that Pasta linked to the correct patch for this software as well?


And can I seriously hook up my RockBand instruments to my PC... that would be sick!!!

EDIT: Still working. I'm gonna stay here until I get this done tonight so I can be the guinea pig. My phone is fully functional on 2.1 right now with a few (slight) mods such as removal of bloat and addition of LauncherPro but I'd really, really, really love to get 2.2 on here if only for the capability to store apps to the SD card. :-D Besides, if I can do it... then so could a kindergartener.

It should be? Honestly I'm perplexed at how it happened, so I figured the best way would be to provide the one that worked for me.

So there is no way to get it to work by replacing the apps rather than the whole (scary) flash technique? I did re-temp root, dropped AmazonMP3.apk in the apps folder (though it may be a problem that its not the original?), but the update process still fails on 'system/app/amazonmp3.apk cannot be found. I was hoping to avoid a full wipe if possible. I think ''m only missing that and nascar and football.

I don't believe there is any other way. I backed all that crap up with Titanium Backup and it wouldn't reinstall right.

Awesome! Be patient, and don't interrupt the process, no matter how long it takes.

Nope, deleted the old binary and replaced it with the correct one.

Pulled the battery. Phone seems to be ON somewhat but the LCD is completely black. If I push the END button the softkeys light up.. but that's it. I get some haptic feedback if I touch the screen, but no light

So you re-deleted it after reinstalling? Can you get into recovery or download mode?

I'm not sure what I'm into. The LCD won't light up. I deleted the Samsung Moment binary and replaced with the Samsung Intercept binary before I DL'd the software. Wish I could get it back into download mode at least and try again but I have no clue where it is... black LCD screen. :S Any ideas?

EDIT: Held keys down to try and enter download mode again but the SWUpdate won't recognize that the phone is connected to the USB anymore.

Reinstalling the software puts it back. That sucks dude, I wish I could be more help. Can you take it to the sprint store and plead ignorance?

Sigh. I wish. Nearest one is about 40 miles from me. The phone IS powered on. I can hear that little sound it makes when the signal kicks in/out. There's just no LCD.. it's black. Something tells me it must be running Moment software or something really, really weird. Like I said, softkeys light up with I press the end key, and every now and again the screen will vibrate when I touch it, but that's it. CRAP! Hahaha!

I'm really sorry. I should've reminded you to delete that file again. I think you're exactly right.

I checked it twice. I think I may have accidentally moved to Intercept file to the wrong program file since I'd downloaded the wrong software the first time. Fudge. I'm on the phone with their advanced support.. maybe I can guilt someone into sending me a replacement? :S

EDIT: Warranty replacement will be here in 3 days. I'm 40 miles from a store. This is going to be a long 3 days... lmao. Live and learn!! The more failures, the closer I am to success!!!

Try doing the steps you remember before from memory, just put the right version on this time. Or maybe you can connect to it via ADB?

Hmmm. That could be quite difficult. What's ADB? Never heard of that one before. Besides, when I try to boot the phone up into Download or Recovery mode it doesn't go. All it will do is just power on... no LCD screen. If I could get the SWUpdater to recognize the phone is connected and get the phone to boot in Download mode I could just re-flash. Believe me, I've tried everything at this point. Even gone so far as to download m900 USB drivers.. just in case. No go.

[QUOTE=Billkwando;2027232]I don't believe there is any other way. I backed all that crap up with Titanium Backup and it wouldn't reinstall right.


Did you move the files to the app folder after restoring from Titanium Backup? I'm wondering if it's just b/c I don't have the original AmazonMP3.apk.

Can anyone upload the stock AmazonMP3.apk file for me to try? Maybe that's the only problem, in which case if I have it in the app's folder, the update will proceed. I was able to temp root and move a non-original version to the apps folder using Root Explorer. I've only ever temp rooted for an hour or so just to remove that app, nascar, and football (which now I wish I never did, though it did help my phone out a bunch back then to have that needed space!). I just really hope I can skip the need to flash, b/c even with all the awesome instructions, it scares the heck out of me! Granted I have the warranty so I can get a replacement, but with kids and work there is no way I can go a couple days without a phone, and if that's all it takes, it'll be nice to not have to re-set up a phone from scratch for things like K-9 settings, etc.

Thanks so much...I think if i can try that out I can answer that question for other people that deleted google talk!

*cry* JOY!

I've tried every set of directions for installing the 2.2 update and this one was the only one that worked. This should really appear at the top of Google News page. :-)

Thank you and Happy Holidays!

or...even better, I wish I could modify the updater script to not look at amazonmp3.apk. I don't know enough about binaries or I'd try. I attempted to modify the script (text) to remove the two places it references Amazonmp3.apk, but it wouldn't let me save it back to the update.zip.

Or you could make a fake apk by naming a blank text file amazonmp3.apk ....but don't.

Or you could just follow the directions. If there was an easier way, the developers forum would've found it by now, I think.

Oh believe me I tried the blank .apk ...looks like it needs to be the stock one to work. I just can't find the stock one anywhere.

Billkwando, where can I get the SDX Samsung Updater Patch.exe? I think that's the only thing I'm missing so that I can follow your steps to get my phone back to stock. Thanks for all of your help!

Also, Billkwando, I read about needing drivers? Is there something other than the one that lets you connect your phone to your pcs for mounting?

I found SDX Samsung Updater Patch.exe on an old post in that other forum...hoping there aren't different versions. So I think my last question before I go for it is if I need any other drivers besides the one that has always let me mount my phone when connected to my pc. Thank you sooooo much!

Hey dude, if you haven't started yet, I'm writing a post for you now. I'll edit this one so just refresh in a minute or 2.

Edit: Anyway, yeah. Part of the problem with Pastafarian's link is that the post points you off in all these different directions that make it scary. You get the update.zip on page 1, then you have to read til page 4 for the "good" directions, which then point you 2 places:

Here: http://forum.sdx-developers.com/intercept-development/intercept-recovery-%28important-features-working!%29/ <-- (copy it, cos it keeps breaking), which has the SWUpdate files, but the instructions don't apply (except for the ones telling you how to install SWUpdate, which very much do, and remind you how not to brick your phone).

And here: http//forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=806083 , which has the .tar that they recommend (and it's not the same one as in the thread with SWUpdate!?) That's why I provided a direct link to the right one prev.

The link to the patch is: https://docs.google.com/uc?id=0B1g2Gszt1BmjMDRkYWM0Y2EtNGM5ZC00NGI5LThjOTk tODUzYTQwNWJhMGU3&export=download&hl=en

I probably should've just linked to the files myself, but I didn't want to completely steal (and reinvent) their wheel. I guess if you make your wheel square, you have it coming.

I was probably saying "drivers" in the generic sense, when I meant software. The only actual drivers are, as you said, the phone's USB drivers. You need 5 things:

1. SWUpdate
2. The Patch for it
3. The .tar with the stock rom thingy (I linked to it in my instructions directly)
4. The update.zip with 2.2 in it
5. The Interecept USB drivers from Samsung

Took my phone to the sprint store. After an hour and a half. I'm at 2.2. They said it was giving them problems at first (I was rooted) but I'm at 2.2. I would suggest just taking your phone in, its A LOT easier.

They didn't notice you were rooted? Lucky.

I think it's working!! Doing the 2.2 update now (though I didn't try much out on the phone after the flash).

Thanks for teaching me to be much more brave!

Billkwando I think we had the same idea. I made another post starting with the instructions and links to all the files needed to get this working as well. It is nice to see someone else willing to help with those having issues. For future posters it is imperative to give which phone you have VM or Sprint. This way we can help you better by directing you to your phone specific assistance.

Hello all, thanks for taking the time to put this thread together! I have a few problems though. I followed the steps in Billkwando's post, but when I get to the step of installing the update.zip, I get an "assert failed: apply_patch_check("/system/app/AccountAndSyncSettings.apk"...then a long string of random characters)" E:Error in /sdcard/update.zip (Status 7) Installation aborted.

Also, the phone does not get past the Samsung logo screen, so I am unable to use this phone as of now! I have a rooted Virgin Mobile Intercept before doing any of this by the way.

Thanks so much, please help!

EDIT: Nevermind! I ran SWUpgrade again after wiping and it seems to be working good now. I am currently applying the patch!

Oh, good. I was afraid you'd boarded the brick train to Brickington. Gotta make sure the phone boots up correctly after SWUpdate before proceeding.

Hey all, thanks for the replies. I do have another issue. The phone runs great aside from the fact that the GPS does not work. It finds no signal at all. Also, google maps is very sluggish, could be just the new version, I don't know. Has anyone else experienced this behavior? I applied the SlapKernal(SlapKernel 1.1 for Froyo 2.2 [easy root via SWUpgrade] [Battery mod]) after flashing in order to remove sprint apps, but that is all I changed.


Thanks!

You should probably report the issue over there so they can research and track it. I read through all 6 pages of that thread and didn't see one mention of GPS, so it could be that yours is an isolated case, or it could be that nobody's spotted the bug yet cos nobody's tried it yet. The only problems I've seen are people reporting that it's killing their battery.

I'd give those guys a chance to address your issue first, since they're the experts. Even so, there have been complaints about GPS not working correctly with the stock 2.2 update, but I used Google Maps navigation yesterday for a 7 mile trip that included highway exits, and it worked perfectly (except for telling us the destination too late for us to avoid passing it and hanging a u-turn, lol)....so I'm not one of the folks having a problem.

I will say one thing about joining that forum. Their captcha is horribly annoying (where you have to type the messed up letters in the pic to prove you're not a bot). It took me 15 or 20 minutes to join cos it was so hard to see, and I kept having to re-input information. I almost gave up.

Thanks for the detailed reply! I posted a thread on the sdx boards.

Do you think reflashing would help?
