    The "force" method is literally exactly how the phone applies the update OTA too, this is just a different way of commanding the install to start, there's no difference at all.

    I'm patient, I'll wait a few days for all the goodness without risking bricking my new Droid by doing something wrong :rolleyes:

    There is no way to brick it by doing this. You simply put update.zip into the root of your SD card and run it through the recovery menu. Zero risk. I mean, actually, there might be some if you pull the battery while it's updating or something, but why would you do that!? :)

    EDIT: No... even then I bet you could get into the recovery menu and flash the factory OS onto it... not that I'm gonna try it. :p

    it's litteraly the exact same thing the phone goes through when it gets the OTA update, downloads the file and runs it lol.

    I didn't take the plastic off the back aswell. But I did the update, because I want the phone to perform like it is supposed too. I was worried about it too, but all it is is download, move from downloads folder to anywhere on the sdcard, just not in a folder. Are first every one was saying put in in the root on the sdcard
    I assumed that I had to root my phone. Then I red on another site that they are just referring to the sdcard, and not rooting the phone...hope this helps

    Oh, I know I don't have to root it.

    Maybe I'll wait for the other 800,000 of us to get 2.02 on Friday! :p

    I don't know why you would wait. It was so easy, it took me 5 min tops. Then again aside from the new unlock screen and camera wait time I am having a hard time figuring out what was changed.
