    Also got the update however I'm getting errors when it installs. Comes up with:

    Finding update package...
    Opening update package...
    Verifying update package...
    E: failed to verify whole-file signature
    E: signature verification failed
    Installation aborted.

    I'm using clockwork recovery mod... could this be causing the issue?

    my update went without a hitch, so unsure what your problem could be


    but it is 2.2 Froyo

    Here's the deal with my Desire. I was tired of waiting for Android 2.2 so used Unrevoked and loaded LeeDroid 2.1. I found the battery life was worse and as this was causing me an issue I went back to my backup of the stock HTC Android 2.1.

    So my phone is rooted but I'm no longer using a custom ROM. If this is the problem I should be able to find the official release of Froyo and load it through Clockwork Recovery mod, am I right?

    There are problems running OTA updates when rooted and with custom recovery. You have to take it back to stock with an RUU that supports your screen type.

    What carrier are you branded with and what is your screen type?

    I'm with O2 and it's an AMOLED screen.

    I did manage to get it to install by turning off signature verification in Clockwork Recovery and everything went through fine... until the phone rebooted and is now stuck in a boot loop with no access to the recovery stuff at all.

    I'm going to try and use Odin to reflash the phone so I can try and recover it.

    Oh dear, I wish you had read my post first.

    You will most likely have to get an O2 RUU and flash it. Since thats what you need anyway, if you already have your data backed you may as well just go straight to it.

    Agreed Dan, I did jump the gun there and payed the price. I'll see how I get on with this and then I'll go for your suggestion. :)

    Ok, I'm going to admit defeat here. I can't find anything to flash the phone while it doesn't have recovery mode or the actual Android OS. Any ideas or should I create a new thread elsewhere about this?

    It's just my luck!

    Ok, with a little bit of Googling, I have managed to find a way into recovery mode. However I can't load a new ROM because it keeps coming up with signature verification failed. Granted the only actual ROM I have availible is LeeDroid and I know you have to be rooted to load it. Will the RUU exe file you linked me work danfrance?

    Yes it should.

    You dont need to be rooted but you do need custom recovery. Do you have the htc one or clockwork? if clockwork, you can go into an option (think it might be partitions and mounts or just mount) you can mount the sd card and put a new rom on it.

    I'm now currently back on the HTC recovery. I've tried loading Clockwork Recover using fakeboot but again it comes up with the signature verification failed. Also when I try using the RUU.exe it cannot get a connection to the phone, maybe because I'm in recovery mode and not actual Android?

    I'm determined to unbrick this phone!

    was this originally an o2 device?
    sounds like it wasnt and you updated it without a goldcard

    its not bricked, you are just looking too far into it
    dont boot to recovery to run the RUU
    you boot to bootloader which is back-key + power

    makesure your device is seen by windows as My HTC or android bootloader and you have htc sync installed

    if it is windows 7 you might need to rightclick and run as administrator.

    Yeah, it was originally o2. I then used a goldcard to get unbranded froyo.

    Decided to go ahead with this update so my warranty was valid again.

    I'm going to be honest and say that I sort of skim read it as I was kind of panicking about it all. I'm just making myself look stupid now. :eek:

    Thanks for your patience guys, the RUU is now going through the process.

    Scary at times, like when the green progress bar went to the end and stayed there for 5 minutes, but we are now at 2.14.207.1 with no side effects yet!

    RUU finished and we're up and running on Android 2.2 complete with all the o2 branding.

    I can't tell you how much help you've been guys. Thanks so much. :)

    No worries dude.

    99.9999% of the time you think your phone is bricked, its not. Important not to panic and take your time with whatever you are doing.

    read teh guide first, then follow it step by step. Usually it will all be fine

    ;)
