    Running Build ESD49, downloaded the 2.1 file from like 6 different sites, named it update.zip (not .zip.zip), put it in the ROOT of my SD card - and I continuously get the following error:

    assert failed: file_getprop....

    E:Error in /sdcard/update.zip
    (Status 7)
    Installation aborted

    there's a whole lot more between the first and last entry but you experts probably know exactly what I am referring to - any help, please?

    I had the same issue, Verizon ended up replacing the device. For the heck of it, try doing a factory wipe. Your downloaded apps will come back, you'll have to reenter some passwords and if an app stores data in an unknown location you will want to try to back it up (I lost my OI Notepad and OI shopping list data).

    I did several wipes and tried both the OTA and manual updates many times and was never able to get it installed, they ended up replacing the phone.

    Why don't you root with droidmod and install a custom 2.1 rom?
