    Hi,
    I have an unlocked, unbranded, unrooted wildfire. It has not been offered the OTA froyo update and I am attempted upgrading manually. I have looked widely and found much often conflicting information.

    My latest attempt is to download a zip using the fota script.

    1) download the zip using fota and rename update.zip
    2) place in the root of the sd card on the phone
    3) boot to hboot, select recovery and then update.zip in sdcard

    Result is a status 7 error. The messages start with a /cache/recover command missing error, lots of getopts and then the status 7.

    Firmware on the phone is 1.16.772.1
    Hboot: 0.80
    File from fota:

    OTA_Buzz_Froyo_H3G_ITA_2.40.772.1-1.16.772.1_C_release_170512gvqemp3ei800u0v4.zip

    I would prefer not to root this phone since it is still under warranty, but if I have to I will. Is there an easy way to get froyo on this phone? can someone point me to the instructions?

    Many thanks in advance

    Paul
