    I'm having big issues, I upgraded with the update.zip. The newest one that was released 2 days ago or so not the one before it. After I updated without wiping the Os went crazy, the phone was always hot, my android system use in about phone has done nothing but grown, It started at 46 percent on 2.2 then 65 and now 100. it take up to 8 hours to charge sometimes 10 and dies within 3 hours just being in my pocket. the phones becoming slowly unuseable. nothing is in stock around me so I need to fix this. I have wiped the phone and same results, so I want to go back to 2.1 and wait for the offical OTA 2.2 to hit my phone. So how can i do this?

    Things to know before answering.

    phone has never been rooted

    already been wiped, no Apps on it

    android OS is using 100 percent of the battery in about the phone

    i have froyo 2.2 stock from a update zip

    It's a droid incredible from verizon so it's CDMA

    I want to go back to stock android 2.1 that came with the phone

    you can't drop the update zip on the phone , the H boot says it's a older software, can't update.

    thanks for any help you can provide.

    How old is the phone? is it still under warranty? Have you contacted verizon? they may replace it if its under warranty tell them what its doing but i would leave out the part of force updating the phone yourself.
