    Droid 2.2 OTA and SPRecovery

    Hi, just joined to hopfully figure out this little problem Iv been having with my droid. A little while ago I flashed sprecovery and rooted my droid. Before that I had created a backup using SPRecovery so I could unroot my droid at will if needed. When I hear 2.2 was out I decided to unroot my droid and turn off the overclock in the same process. That all worked fine and my droid was no longer unrooted.

    Here my real problem now, I cannot apply the manual update for 2.2. Whenever I attempt it I get a status 7 error (apply_patch_check), followed by a long boring hash value. I have tried 2 factory resets and this point and still get the exact same error. I eventually waited for the OTA release of 2.2. It finally came and I attempted that update. The problem with this is SPRecovery will not allow the update since using the update.zip is turned off by default. When in sprecovery if I turn updates on, then attempt the installation, it says there is no update there.

    Two Questions:
    1) Is there a way I can set the allow check to true in sprecovery to allow the OTA update.

    2) If 1 is possible or not, Why the hell do I continuously get this status 7 error, and could this occur even with the OTA update.

    Thanks

    as long as the update.zip is on the sdcard you can allow it. go into a menu like install or install zip from recovery. then allow update.zip and install update.zip. sorry i use clockwork and forgot the layout of sprcovery.

    The problem isn't that it cant find the update.zip, in the OTA update I dont think it really even exists. The reason I think this is when I attempt the OTA update sprecovery rejects it as if it where an update.zip that I did not set to allow, however when I go to the update function, allow update.zip and then try to install from update.zip theres nothing there to update from.

    if your rooted with sprecovery why not just install a rom. verizons update will never be as good as a rom. but if you really want to update to the official update heres a link to the update http://www.nexeo.net/android/FRG01B/update.zip though i dont suggest doing that i suggest going with a rooted version or a custom rom

    Well I downloaded your Insanely Clean rom v1.3 and ran it as an update with no errors. However how long after reboot should I expect to wait on the new ANDROID loading screen? Iv been waiting for about 5 min last time I attempted any roms(OCing), it took about 30 sec. I know since this is the entire image it will take longer but any idea how much longer?
