    so if we are on .588 via the "update.zip" method, I assume this means "stock .588" and non-root?

    If so, will we still be able to download (and install) .596 manually on 6/1?

    Thanks!

    No, to get the update you have to be on stock 2.2.1 froyo, unrooted. You'll have to SBF and do a factory reset to get back to it, once you do that, you'll be able to recieve the over the air update, or manually install it once you're done restoring it.

    So here's what I did to go from .588 to .596 without a hassle, and it worked like a charm:

    1. Go here and download the GingerBreak app to your sd card:

    http://www.droidfiles.us/downloads/a...reak-v1.20.apk

    2. Open a file manager such as Root Explorer and tap on the GingerBreak file and it will ask you if you want to install it. Tap install and then when it's finished, tap on "Root" (I may not have the exact wording correct but you get the idea -- you want to root your device and as of right now this is the only one-stroke rooting app that works -- z4 will not work).

    3. Go here and download the 596 DeOdex:

    Deposit Files

    This is probably where you're having a problem, 'cause I had the same one:

    4. Copy the 596 file to your sd card WITHOUT unzipping.

    5. Using Droid 2 Bootstrapper, tap on "Bootstrap Recovery" and then "Reboot Recovery"

    6. Then use the volume keys to go to "Install Zip from sdcard". Use the camera button to select (power button goes back a screen.

    7. Select "Choose zip from sdcard" (remember to use the camera button to make your selection).

    8. Use the volume buttons to find "596-Deodexed.zip" and then select it.

    That's it!

    When it says it's complete, use the power button to get back to "Reboot system now" and you'll be all set (hopefully!)

    BTW, this is ALL thanks to DroidModderX | Ultimate Video Guides!, I'm just including a few details you can't see in his video.

    Good luck.

    I downloaded the leaked rooted .588 gingerbread. Will this method work for me as well?
    Or do I just download the 596 deodexed and install?

    Also, the link isn't working, do you know a working link?

    Thanks in advance
