    I just want to update to Froyo 2.2 for god's sake...

    I rooted my incredible (before the Froyo OTA update) with Unrevoked3. I waited for Unrevoked 3.2.1 to come out and ran that thinking that it would update my phone to Froyo 2.2.

    I now realize that it doesn't, but I have no idea what to do. I've been searching, but all I've found are posts telling me to wipe my phone and install custom roms.

    Is that the only way!?

    Thanks!

    ok you are rooted with 2.1 Correct?
    Yes you have to either unroot downgrade. which wipes phone.
    Then once back to 2.1 Stock you can OTA to 2.2 Then unrevoked 3.21
    Or you can find a 2.2 Froyo ROM. and not need unrevoked 3.21
    Either way Rom , Or Factory Up to you.
    Hope this made sense

    Don't do the OTA. Too much work and a lot of people are having issues with it. Personally, I'd do the 2.2 RUU or flash a 2.2 rom and use s-off to flash a 2.15 radio so everything works right.

    OK...so if I 2.2 RUU, I won't need to downgrade first?

    And do you have a link? :)

    This is the 2.2 RUU. Download to PC and run from there. Follow instructions.
    Shipped ROMs

    You'll lose root but not a big deal anymore since the new Unrevoked was released.

    If you currently have S-ON then just run that RUU and it will give you 2.2 and remove your root access. And just a heads up... the RUU WILL wipe your phone, so do a titanium backup ahead of time.

    Once you are done with that, you can reroot using Unrevoked 3.21 (the newest that roots 2.2).
