    That was it. If you are in windows and you name it update.zip it sometimes makes it actually update.zip.zip

    I was doing step 20. Then press Enable USB Mass storage, but then I can't connect.

    you probably have the file named update.zip.zip. Windows does this sometimes.

    I finely made it to work. I think what I did is to leave RSD lite running and phone connected from beginning to the end of the process.

    Thanks

    For you help

    Now the question is what ROM to use

    Linux instructions work perfectly. I just flashed SPRecover_ES81, then installed FRG22-Release. Worked like a charm.

    You might make a specific instruction to never remove the Droid from USB during the process, as well as note that putting the battery back in the phone with USB connected triggers a reboot of the phone. I ended up having it restart twice before I hit the "X" key fast enough to intercept.

    Please help! I did the FRG01B update and am not happy with the way my droid is performing so I'm trying to follow your instructions to move up to FRG22. I'm connected via USB to my XP PC. The droid screen shows:

    Bootloader
    2C.7C
    Battery OK
    OK to Program
    Transfer Mode:
    USB

    I'm stuck at item 12 & 13. The RSD Lite is running but all the fields are blank. I manually input SPRecovery_ESE81.sbf for the filename and hit START, but nothing is happening. I'm afraid to unplug the droid and don't know where to go from here.

    Please help,
    Thanks

    You have to actually go to the file. Just manually putting in the file name wont do anything. Click the box thats ... and browse to where you have the file on your computer

    Thanks, I did that and browsed/selected the sbf file and the FILE PROPERTIES filled in. Nothing shows up under DEVICE PROPERTIES and when I hit START, nothing shows up on the droid screen.

    Am I still doing something wrong?

    You probably arent doing anything wrong. RSD Lite is a super finicky program.

    Do you have the correct drivers installed?

    You can always turn off the phone and turn it back on to get out of the bootloader. You havent done anything that will have adverse affects on your phone

    I just downloaded/installed the current USB driver from Moto (32 bit for XP).

    When I connected the phone I didn't do the MOUNT thing, which I normally do with USB (the instructions didn't mention that). Should I turn off the phone and do the USB mount then restart at #10?

    I really appreciate all the handholding.

    You dont have to mount anything for the bootloader. You are in the bootloader when you are trying to flash this right?

    I guess so, the top of the droid shows Bootloader 2C.7C

    But the Droid doesn't show up as a storage device on my PC.

    OK, I turned off the phone and restarted it a few times and still nothing happens when I press START. In between I tested the phone and it's ok, like you said.

    Am I selecting the correct file in RSD Lite? SPRecovery_ESE81.sbf

    All the prior steps worked fine, so I don't know where to go from here. Do you think that when Verizon send out 2.2 OTA, it will update my droid, now that it has FRG011B already?

    I guess I should have been more patient...

    that is the correct file. For some reason RSD Lite just does not like some computers. VZW will eventually send out a second OTA but we dont really know when that will be. There are rumors of it starting early next week

    Midax, did you get OMJ's build to work? If so how is it running? I'd love to pick your brain because I am in the same boat: not happy with the first update and really want to take full advantage of Droid 2.2's capabilities, though I'm not too confident in my ability to get through all the steps OMJ listed and don't want to brick my phone.

    am I doing something wrong? I keep getting this error message: phone disconnected when attempting to flash using RSD Lite. my phone is connected and computer recognizes device. I don't know what to do.

    I also installed the moto drivers as instructed.

    How does the linux process compare to the windows process? Is it more or as stable as rsd lite for windows? I have 2 partitions, Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows XP pro. I would rather use ubuntu, I just want to make sure the process for flashing is stable. I hope that made sense :)
