    2.0.1 to 2.2 problem

    So I got a new Droid from the mail because the 2.2 update broke my old one, and the new one i recieved is on 2.0.1. Its been close to 12 hours and I hadnt recieved an OTA for 2.2 so i tried to do a manual update and I get:

    E:Can't open /cache/recovery/command

    and the install fails, it says a buncha random crap and then says

    (Status 7)
    Installation aborted.

    What can I do to get stock 2.2? Do I gotta root? If so, easy, but I promised my parents i wouldnt

    of course you can always root

    if you are running 2.01, i believe the phone needs to update to OTA 2.2 update (FRG01B) first. Then after a reboot the OTA 2.2 update (FRG22D) should push to the phone.

    **if you install the OTA 2.2 update FRG22D you will NOT be able to root.**
    the exploit has been patched/removed from this ota. you would have to *sbf* back to 2.1 or 2.01 to gain root again.

    this would be until the devs figure something out..... oh wait they have...

    download and flash this rom to your phone.
    Droid - FRG22D, rooted, deodexed, busyboxed **Rooted Users

    then you will have a rooted FRG22D.

    i myself would just steer clear of the OTA releases from VZW. it's a hit and miss thing.

    I just tried it. Worked fine.

    I put it on the sdcard. Rebooted to recovery. Chose apply zip from sdcard under advanced. Selected rom. And flashed. No problems.

    Did you wipe: data, cache, and dalvik?
