    In your "without"computer update instructions, in step 4 you say "once you have unmounted the phone", is that for if you mounted it to your computer to download astro file mngr? if you downloaded the update.zip straight to the phone why do you need to unmount, im confused...

    I also am unrooted with sprecovery, and cannot get it to install.

    Servers are slow, but I am working on getting another mirror via Media Fire.

    Just be a bit more patient with me as it uploads.

    Ya, I really wish I'd been tipped off about this killing swype before I updated. That's a real bummer.

    Phone is rebooting now. So far so good.

    Edit: Phone is booted now.

    Launcher took a while to load. Things are pretty poky. Make sure you give it some time to refresh and fully reboot.

    Edit 2: Stock 2.2 launcher is still slow as crap. LauncherPro seems to work perfectly. Swype is definitely broken (big bummer there).

    Edit 3: Swype works fine now. Uninstall it and reinstall it and you should be good to go. Swype actually feels a good bit faster in 2.2

    TRIDENT - I do have ROM manager, but haven't used it since rooting. What's the process with it?

    I need more server space for the file! My servers cannot handle this many people.

    If you would like to make a mirror of the file on your server, please PM me ASAP!

    As found on the Swype site:
    Go to settings and uninstall swype, but not swype installer
    run swype installer to reinstall swype
    all is good.

    PC method worked for me. Dev-Mob was a fast dl site. Thanks!

    I'm happy just to have more than 3 home screens...still finding more changes, but everything seems good so far.

    You can download a stock 2.1 image in ROM Manager. Just do some searching around.. you'll find it.

    With ROM Manager, you're able to go into ROM Manager and restore your phone to the stock 2.0.1 file - it's pretty simple, just go to ROM Manager --> Download ROM --> Stock Images --> Verizon DROID 2.0.1 Stock

    Don't select the Verizon Droid 2.2 Froyo leak

    If I am rooted stock 2.1 and I flash the update will I lose root?
  16. johnlgalt

    johnlgalt Antidisestablishmentarian VIP Member

    Yes. This is an official download from Motorola / Verizon, so it is not rooted.

    Location 1 and 2 are down.
    Location 3 is still live.
    I have two more locations that will be available soon.

    Anyone care to donate some server space?

    Would any of the current rooting methods work? I guess its too early for anyone to try.

    FWIW: The first link, from My DROID Does, is terminating the file too early - I have attempted 4 DLs now, and I have a fast connection here:


    So, I personally suggest using the second or third links for your DL.

    Trident, you've got mail coming in about 5 min.

    Nice job Trident, LarryR.

    Just updated the 'ol Droid to Froyo. (Well my coworker did, who is borrowing it)

    Good stuff, update worked perfectly.

    Quick kinda off-topic question, but how do I get flash working? I downloaded flash showcase from the market, and it sends me to a "get adobe flash" link. But when I click on the link I get a not found error.

    Just put that server online, so it should be pretty quick.

    So I'm seeing conflicting reports. does the udpate require being renamed to update.zip or no?
