    I had the same issue and tried the update, but now all my applications are not showing when hitting the home screen. :(

    ***EDIT***

    I just rebooted and all is well. Thanks...!

    Getting a DX. It got delivered today. My work paid for the DX and used their new every 2 but I have to give my Droid to a coworker. I will probably buy a another droid if I can find one relatively cheap. But I dont know when that will happen or if it even will.

    Sorry if it's been mentioned/answered, but I'm kind of panicking.

    I made it to step 28 (Windows), but can't get past it.

    I click on Install/sdcard/update.zip (deprecated), and this is what my screen says:

    -- Install from sdcard...
    Finding update package...
    Opening update package...
    Verifying update package...
    E:update.zip install blocked
    Installation aborted.

    I'm using the FRG01B rom provided in the link in the OP.

    Any help will be greatly appriciated

    *edit: Just tried using the FRG22D one as well. Same error

    you have to get into SPR right after flashing SPR. If you get booted up into the os once it will be gone because of the froyo install recovery script.
