    Here's the history:

    • I loaded the leaked 2.2 when it first became available and then deleted update.zip from the SDCard Directory. 2.2 worked fine.
    • I reverted back to 2.1 in order to be able to get the OTA version of 2.2. Reverting worked fine.
    • I rooted 2.1 using Universal Androot
    • I installed the following apps: Titanium Backup, Root Explorer, DroidXBootstrap
    • I did a nandroid backup using Bootstrap.
    • Based on the reports I read today of the OTA 2.2, I decided to re-install the leaked 2.2
    • Using Root Explorer, I moved su from Bin to Xbin directory in order to preserve root status.
    • I connected the Droid X to my laptop and copied Update.zip to the SDCard. Note that my SD card if almost full - only 25MB left after copying update.zip
    • I then booted, cleared cache and proceeded to run the update. Got the following messages:
      • right at the start I got "E: can't open /cache/recovery/command"
      • after the update ran for a bit it aborted and I got "error in /sdcard/update.zip Status 7"
    • Booting got me into this battery icon and a second boot got me to clockwork recovery which rebooted me to a healthy 2.1.
    Any suggestions?

    Why not use the rom manager to install the stock image of 2.2 (Verizon Droid X 2.2) this will get you rooted 2.3.9, then update from 2.3.9 to 2.3.15?

    How do we update to 2.3.15 from 2.3.9 or at least, where do we get it to do the update?

    Found the answer. Had to remove the bootstrap program.
