I tried to manually update my DINC to froyo but it didnt work..i just got around to deleting the file last night, would me having that file on my sd card prevent me from getting the update? Would it make it seem as if i have already updated to 2.2? I also read that the update is supposed to be done in the next few days..
There is no way that your phone wouldn't get the update because you had a certain file on your SD card. Your system knows what version it is, if the system wasn't updated, having update.zip isn't going trick anything into thinking it has. Of couorse, if you have it rooted, or changed the radio version, or anything like that, it may have prevented you from getting the Over The Air update, but I don't know all of the factors for your specific phone.
But specifically, no, I seriously doubt having update.zip on your SD card would have made your phone ignore the official update.
In fact when I go to edit and view my existing contacts, it now simply says "unknown" in place of the name.
But when I go out of edit, the name is still there and has not been erased.
In other words, nothing in my actual files have been corrupted "yet".. it just that I can't edit or add new entries to existing contacts, or add new contacts with custom names.
Do you have an incredible and still have your custom option after the 2.2 update?

The Second Mouse gets the Cheese!
Wow.This is worst update roll out in android history.
I jumped on Verizon from tmobile just to get updates for phone.(used to have mytouch but officially its stuck on 1.6) I am not new for android game know how to root etc
1.Blame Game. After calling verizon number of times they keep telling me they did not tested 2.2 All they do just blaming HTC. HTC gave them update and they just pushed to our phones. We all know verizon modified update and put bunch of junk inside.
2.Hope. I did not root my dinc.I was waiting for official ota like most of regular users.At the end i got broken not finished not polished crap(hopefully unrevoke team provide us with solution of rooting 2.2
3.Task killer.My battery life dramatically increased after i stop using any task killer software on 2.1 and bump charge method. Something wrong with charging process.
Not sure it s software or hardware but bump charge help me alot.(for people who do not not bump charge method. Charge your phone until red light turns green.Turn off the phone and charge it again.I think it add like 15-20% on battery)
After reseting phone number of times i decided stop using this broken HTC sense for now.
Running my 2.2 with ADW
Got low on space error when browsing dolphin. Orientation on Sense def broken.Gtalk stop working at some point.
I really regretting moment when i press install update button.Next time i will wait for sure.
