    Have you re-downloaded the file? You may have a corrupt download.

    Also, which recovery are you using, and which file did you download?

    also while were at it another quick question.. is it even worth it to root to 2.2? ive seen people having many problems re flashing into recovery, bugs etc..

    What do you mean "Root to 2.2"? Do you mean root? Or do you mean flash to 2.2?

    Download the file again - overwrite your original copy - extract it again - delete the copy on your phone and re-copy it over.

    Absolutely. I am one of the ones that had the recovery problem - we have that figured out now. WiFi works with the alternate kernels, Adobe Flash player works, the phone is a ton faster (I have 150 apps installed, and with a 1200 MHz kernel on Pete's BB 1.0 and on Froyo stock it was (subjectively, of course) feeling at about the same speed. Now I have a new kernel installed - gonna see how well it performs....

    Just the folder with the date. Put it in /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/

    When you extract the ZIP file that you download, it should extract to a folder that says 2010-06-05.06.15.32 - if it does not, then find another place to grab the file from.

    In fact, I used this file taken from the MDW site before it went down this afternoon, and it is the same file linked to on their website and in Fab's post as well - use *it* instead.

    P3DF-CW.zip

    Also, When you extract it, it should not have P3DF-CW as the main folder - the main folder should be that 2010-06-05.06.15.32 as I said.

    Finally, copy (don't move, as if it encounters an error it may still delete it and you'll have to extract it again before you can try again) this folder to your phone into the directory /sdcard/clockwork/backup folder. Then use Rom Manager / adb / manually reboot into recovery, and then go to Partitions --> format 1) boot 2) data 3) system 4) cache, & then go to nandroid --> restore and then pick that 2010-06-05.06.15.32 folder, and let it do its thing.

    another question.. how do i extract the .apk out of the zip file??

    Market is gonna be slow b/c it is automagically installing all your old apps again - go to downloads and you'll see what I mean.

    which .ZIP file? .APK for what?

    for flash.. when i download it its in a zip file.. how do i get it to a .apk file and working on my phone?
     
  15. johnlgalt

    When you open the .ZIP file it has nothing in it? Then it is your browser changing the name to .ZIP - edit the file after copying it to your phone using Astro / Estrongs File Manager and just cut off the .ZIP part and then it should install fine.

    You're very welcome. Give Froyo an hour or so (O, maybe more like 15 minutes, but still!) before you go all crazy with it - but then, do go crazy with it.

    I think my problem was I was moving it, not copying it over.. We will see after I try downloading the new file.. IS this one the one that has wifi fixed?

    The MDW files do not have it integrated. The new one from B... does have them integrated. But the file was SPR only. However, our very own OMJ just posted a CWM nandroid backup in that thread.

    1) The market is slow because it is background downloading and installing all the apps you've previously downloaded through the market (a neat new feature of 2.2).

    2) Busybox is the backend processor for Titanium Backup, so to the "problems" tab in TB and tell it to download Busybox for you.
