    So I rooted my phone and left well enough alone at 2.1, I rooted via universal androot. Clockwork recovery works, had the bootstrap loader.

    Ok trying to update to 2.2, and then root, my issue is I get that cool exclamation point and nifty little droid guy, it will not update, when I got the phone into the stock recovery mode it says E: failed to verify whole file signature E: signature verification failed
    Installation aborted.

    Am I not going to be going to 2.2? 2.2 and me seem to have a battle that 2.2 thinks it will win, my first dx bricked itself just updating OTA.

    What would be causing my issue? I am going to guess that I happen to have some strange event going on.

    Ohh I did a factory reset still clockwork recovery comes up, is that supposed to do that?

    I hope you made a nandroid backup. If you didnt then find the droid x sbf
    for 2.1, look for phoxus_gift or motobomb. Also, if you rooted and removed any bloat apps the update will not go through

    No back up lost it all, used rsd lite and installed 2.2 via the unbrick your phone guide found here Unbrick
