    Droid wont do system update

    My droid will get the system update notification every week, but when i restart and install the progress bar gets halfway and then the warning sign pops up and it stops the download and doesn't go again. I take out the battery and check the phone and it says the system is currently up to date. Android version 2.2. But a week later the system update notification comes back up please help. Thank you

    Try this: when the warning screen comes on press volume up and camera buttons at the same time. It should bring up the recovery screen. If it does, use the dpad to select "apply" update, if it doesn't work it should at least tell what errors are preventing the update specifically.

    Another thing you can try is check motorolas website to manually do the update. You'll need a pc to connect and you'll have to install the drivers, but it might help troubleshooting the problem.

    Here ya go!

    Ok, here is the update.zip so you can copy and do as instructed in previous posts.

    If it still will not install it properly, your gonna have to go thru the whole wipe menu.

    With Phone "OFF" hold the "X" key and press power to get into recovery options. Select each of these and press the "gold" center key on D-Pad:

    Wipe Baseband
    Wipe Cache
    Wipe Data/Factory Reset

    Once it is done, Turn phone off and go back into recovery. Then Select:

    Apply: update.zip

    Reboot phone, and once inside..."SKIP" all the activation screens.

    Go to Apps drawer = SETTINGS - PRIVACY - Factory reset.

    Once all that is done, start setting your phone back up!

    Hope this Helps!!
