    -Well here it is ppl:OFFICIAL Froyo RC2 Update ZIP

    Just follow the directions and you'll have official 2.2 update.
    No more waiting for OTA update! :).

    *NOTE: Read the threads for any reported problems so far. Very little testing have been done with these, i haven't even tried it yet, so there could be problems. This is for the extremely impatient :D



    THIS REQUIRES ROOT

    If you are not rooted yet than you will need to do the following before applying this:

    1.) To root your phone, read here:http://forum.sdx-developers.com/tra...hing-vampirefo-transform-kernel-and-recovery/

    And here's a video that you could follow:http://youtu.be/shkOp2Q2AM4

    2.)You'll have to apply the recovery found here after you've rooted:http://forum.sdx-developers.com/transform-2-2-development/froyo-11128/. There's other stuff on the thread but the recovery is all you need.

    3.) Apply Froyo zip:OFFICIAL Froyo RC2 Update ZIP

    -This was some pretty big news so i decided to make a new thread seprate fr the "Shall we begin" thread.
    This ones specifically for flashing it manually. (That way we can ask questions and discuss problems about it) :)
    -And of course i am not responsible if you brick your phone. Use at your own risk.

    alright, well you guys will have to root in order to dothis, justa heads up if your not up for it, and would rather just wait for OTA.
    Im on my phone so it may take a couple mins but let me find all the liks you guys are gonna need to root etc.

    speeder760 Well-Known Member

    Lol no problem, i figured that since you havent rooted yet.

    -OP(Original Post) has been updated with directions for non-rooted users.

    On step 3, what is the difference between the first link and the completely stock 2.2 froyo?
  10. speeder760

    speeder760 Well-Known Member

    I just changed step 3 so ppl wouldnt get confused lol.
    Now only the completely stock(what you would have gotten OTA) is posted on step 3.

    Ok well I'm rooting my phone now...It's telling me to put a kernel_recovery.tar file into my SWUpgrade/Models/Binary folder, but when I download the link they give me...The only files I get are a "zImage" and a "recovery.rfs".

    Edit- Nevermind, I figured it out...I was opening the kernel_recovery.tar automatically and was seeing the files inside it.

    speeder760 Well-Known Member

    dont unzip any of the files!
    make sure u follow directions of how to root carefully, there is possibility of bricking

    Hyndon Well-Known Member

    Ok, I'm having a problem now actually...

    I followed the directions as far as i know, but on the last step, when it tells me to go to Reboot Options, then select Reboot to System, I do that, and instead of booting up the phone, it takes me into recovery every time.
  14. speeder760

    speeder760 Well-Known Member

    ok, hold off for a sec before doing anything else, as long as u can get into recovery your not bricked.
    what exactly did you do in the last step?
  15. Hyndon

    Hyndon Well-Known Member

    Okay. Basically I was able to root successfully.

    Then I did the following:

    Except in Step 20, it when I do Reboot to system, it takes me into recovery every time.
  16. speeder760

    speeder760 Well-Known Member

    ok, well it seems like its the stock update thats the problem. if u read the thread, another user posted the same problem of booting into recovery. so now what u could do is flash the other froyo which gives you root acess but it seems that one is havingproblems with data connecting. if u wish to do this let me know and ill give u a quick walk through to make sure u have the right recovery ad stuff. or u could follow step 1 again which will bring for phone back to stock 2.1 but with root and wait till these froyosare more stable.

    Hyndon Well-Known Member

    Yeah I went back to stock 2.1. I think I'll just wait a little until either I receive the OTA or a more stable guide/post becomes available.

    Please excuse my ignorance but can I flash this since I am rooted with vampirefo's 2.7 and FroyoRC2? Is this simply the update file? Will I lose anything applying this zip?
  19. vanburen72

    vanburen72 Well-Known Member

    Well, went to console, entered ext4, updated from zip and rebooted.
    All settings and installed apps are gone. No data. No wifi.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks.

    And I am rooted with vampirefo's 2.7 and FroyoRC2.

    hyndon, i wouldnt bother waiting for OTA this should be sorted out soon. and plus lets face it, stock isno fun, even if it is 2.2 lol.
    since your now rooted, which u should be if u followed step and and didnt go back to complete stock, than u might wanna try this : http://forum.sdx-developers.com/transform-2-2-development/froyo-port-rom-(beta-test)/also, if you wish to get the ota update u must flash completely stock with no root. if you try to update with root and custom recovery youll have issues.
  22. speeder760

    speeder760 Well-Known Member

    twisted,yes u can flash with your current setup but will lose your data because you have to type rfs which wipes your phone.

    vanburen, 3g/wifi is a known problem and should be fixed today.
