    Sunny,

    to the forum!

    1) are you in SPRecovery or the stock recovery?

    2) assuming SPRecovery, are you allowing the install before you attempt to install?

    TY !


    Let me see if i can explain this right...i follows all the steps, and on the
    RSD Lite window i get PASS. The phone reboots, i hold the x button, get the gold droid guy... then...go to the installation of the update...says it is blocked, update aborted.

    Okay, we move on to step 2. Are you telling the SPRecovery to "allow update.zip install" before you tell it to "install update.zip (deprecated)"?

    Got stuck on the phone, but finally got to retry and am still getting the same message.

    Can't figure out what i am doing wrong.


    Again, thanks for your help.

    Let's make absolutely sure you're in SPRecovery. Does it say patched by sir psycosis at the top?

    If so, try downloading the file again, enabling USB mass storage, and copying it to the root of the SD card and trying to install it again. You'll have to disable USB mass storage, but if at this point you STILL can't get it to install we'll have to try something.

    Finally got it!

    Decided i was too frustrated last night to continue trying...got up this am, read your message and re-did everything and it worked!

    I know now what i was getting wrong...[i think]...after RSD did what is does, i was disconnecting the USB. This time, i didn't and when i got to the gold droid guy, everything installed just fine. Didn't get the 'blocked-aborted message.'

    Thank you so much...your patience kept me going.

    Now I am off to see what my phone can really do.

    So this works on the 2.2.1 Update? By brother has the Original Droid and has never Rooted it. I used this method when I rooted mine and it worked but that was a lot of updates ago.

    IDK I have 2.2 FRG22D.

    I haven't updated to the 2.2.1 yet.
