No problem! Just sent you a PM.
The most likely outcome of that scenario would be a bootloop forcing a wipe and reinstall, which is exactly what the poster didn't want to happen. The next most likely outcome would be an okay install but with major issues, eventually forcing a wipe or ROM install. The best outcome, but least likely, would have been a clean install with no issues. With the law of averages being what they are, and the fact that even the stock-rooted ROMs are custom ROMs when it comes to the rules of installing (until someone proves me otherwise), this just seemed like the safer bet. :)
First, I have to thank all the posters in this forum (and this topic). I could not have learned/done what I have w/out the time and patience in explaining everything. So thank you (and my droid 1 running @ 1Ghz thanks you :)).
With that out of the way, I hate to sound like all the other noobs (Even though I'm one step up from a noob - Noob Plus), but I'm not sure if this has been asked (or answered) before, but here goes nothing.
Ok short version: I grabbed myself a copy of FRG83D-Deodexed-m1. I renamed it update.zip and put it in the root of my SD Card. Booting to SPRecovery i then updated with that update.
It seems I did mostly ok. I'm still rooted, and i've got 2.2.1.
My only problem is that now I've run out of space on my device?!?!?!? Even before i did this Using Titanium Backup, moved as many of the larger apps to the SD card (not the critical/important ones mind you, the games and other non-critical apps).
But where before the update i was about 15% free (not great but do-able), i'm not at around 6% free, and i'm not able to get text messages. I tried looking for apps taking up space, but again most of the biggies are already on my SD card.
The only thing i could think is that the Update file i used to update to 2.2.1 was about 76MB. So that must have moved from the SD card onto my device. Is there anyway to clean up any older update/ROM Files to give me back my space?
Is this normal? Did i do something wrong?
Please help (if at all possible).
Thanks again for all your help,
A (Rooted, but lacking in space) Bug :motdroidhoriz:
Totally off-topic. Please start a thread and PM me so I can help with it. This thread needs to stay at least somewhat close to topic. :)
I followed the instructions and it appears that all went well and I believe that I am now rooted. So I guess I have a few options and lots of questions but for now I guess I'd like to try overclocking and see how my cpu runs overclocked. After that I guess I can move on to making backups and maybe dealing with some custom roms.
