    Did that as well... i've changed the setting to charge before i take it off... i've left it in every setting tried it anyway i can think of. Nothing seems to work. The first time i did it, it bricked my phone but that's because i was dumb and just put it on the sdcard not following directions. I reset, rerooted did everything i can think of and still nothing.

    I work in an office. It has a window, but it isn't
    In a house, near some mountains.
    try this (via p3droid @mydroidworld)

    i. go to mount and storage
    ii. select mount system (it should say unmount /system if done correctly)
    iii. press the power button
    iv. select install zip from sdcard
    v. select choose zip from sdcard
    vi. navigate to update.zip and press the camera button

    edit: just realized this advice was no good. re-read your first post, and noticed you were disabling custom recovery.

    Ok i have two update.zip on my sdcard one is spelled correctly the other like this update.zip/... i can't apply that one. When i press it, it opens more folders and so on. If i use the other that is spelled correctly i get the same error "no such file or directory". Should i delete and recopy it to the sdcard or does anyone have a better idea?

    i would delete them both, and re-copy the one you want to your SD card.

    You do know the OTA version is expected here in the next couple weeks and Verizon has stated leaked Froyo users won't get OTA updates?

    I only mention this b/c flashing back to 2.1 to get updates is harder than installing the leaked update.

    Whats so hard about it? Setting it up seems to be the hard part.
    Personnel I'm going to wait and see what happens. I want to see if they patch the recovery exploit or if the kernel is updated. In other words I want to see if its better than having a rooted phone with recovery that I can mess with or if the fixes are worth losing that.

    Well my problem has been the update.zip not being found. I've bricked my phone several times so flashing back doesn't bother me. I would just like vanilla froyo, but i can't even update to the leaked version.

    You're either doing something wrong or you have the bug where you can't mount the sdcard in recovery. DO you have the lastest version of koushes recovery?

    When you boot to recovery from Koushs bootstrap go to mounts and storage, mount the sdcard and see if you get an error. if so re download the bootstrap app and install it again. Select bootstrap recovery (again) then boot to recovery and see if can now mount the sdcard. if so install the update.zip

    If not list your steps here.
