This is my first post, I've finally decided to register after using this forum several times trying to figure issues I've run into while rooting.
So, here we go..
I have a droid x running the stock 2.3.15 from verizon. I got the droid x about a month or two ago. I rooted about 3 weeks ago. The only thing I did to it was install wireless tether. About 2 weeks ago my 16GB sd card died( ill get to that in a minute). Right now I have a 2GB in it now. Thats all the info about my phone.
Here's whats happened...
(Day 1)Sat by my phone all night, waited for that new update. As soon as it went up I downloaded it and installed. While it was installing it stoped 1/3 of the way through and reset. When it turned back on it said "Update Failed". So I thought the best thing to do would to unroot and uninstall my apps including super user. I used the one click root again, unrooted then while navigating in my phone deleted Super User. Reset/formatted my phone and sd card. Tried it again, no luck. Proceeded to wallow in sadness blah blah blah...
(day 2) When I woke up in a mess of my own tears and sadness I decided I would take my phone to verizon. (at this point I thought I was the most clever person in the world) (side note)When my sd card broke I took it to verizon and was like "Fix this!". My phone changed about 15 hands trying to firgure out what happened. (side note again!) I told them how I woke up one morning and said Sd broke blah blah blah never taken it out blah blah blah dont buy your sd cards from sweatshop B in china blah blah about 36 times so I was already irritated over 9000. Then they sad they can't fix it because the phone was rooted. I proceeded to say yes but the SD is not. There are two separate warrentys, long story short they refused I was pissed and left.(anyway) I took my phone to verizon (day two) (different store) and said the magic sd fairy broke my card, guess what? They gave me a new one! Why you might ask? Becasuse they could find no sign of my phone being rooted so now it was their problem! in your face verizon! Didnt say a word about the update problem. (although I am considering it)
(day 3)A few hours ago I tried the manual way. Found the .zip online then put it on my SD card and when I tried to update, it gave me Error 7, which for the life of me can't even firgure out what that means. Anyway my phone won't update and to my knowlege and verizons my phone is not rooted. However I can't exactly be certain. When I first rooted it i had some trouble with the one click root. I got pissed at it and just clicked the root and unroot like 9000 times in furry. When I did get it to root it literally took me 5 milliseconds to say F this and I clicked unroot. Funny after that it was still rooted. (I used a different one click root to unroot it)
(Android.day.3.535am) (today)Phone has been reformated and at this point I just want the update to work. I don't care how I just want it to work. 2gb SD card it in the phine now. I still dont trust that 16GB. So if anyone can help me please don't hesitate. If enough of you really want me to go back to verizon and see if they can fix it let me know. I wouldn't mind writing another story about it. At this point think of my phone as a canvas for your therories. Ill try anything you want! I don't even have a gmail account hooked up to the phone.
Thanks in advance for your comments!
