    Mine failed 4 times. I believe it was due to not having the preinstalled apps back in place.

    I did successfully update while rooted, then had to re-root.

    That should work, but if it doesn't, SBFing is pretty simple.

    that worked, had to uninstall boostrapper but that was it, installed and preserved root. Reinstalled clockworkmod and everything seems to be working no probs :)

    edit: nextheme=bootloop lol

    Did you get the theme for the right ROM or did you forgot to mount system maybe?

    So I kept trying and trying to update ota... Kept failing.... Does uninstalling nfs really not allow you to update?!!? Thats the only thing I've changed... Ugh, oh well, flashed the zip from wherever so i have 2.3.20 but no updated kernel/baseband....

    Droid makes pwn... Do u have su installed...? If not, dl it from the market if u can, see if that helps... Might b ur prob

    IMO, do it via PC - worked like magic for me.
    There is an update zip that is deodexed and you lose no data. On XDA I think.
    Also you need to be deodexed for a theme.
