    Droid 2 (R2D2)
    Got the update to take after numerous failed attempts


    It took some drastic steps though...

    Just a reminder.... There is no turning back if you flash with a new sbf.... and there are so many chances to brick your phone.

    First I loaded a 2.3.20 FULL SBF file that I located from this link.
    (There was at least one of the download links for the sbf that was still working)

    TBH & MyDroidWorld Present: Droid 2 (2.3.20) Triple Threat
    I highly recommend reading through the thread to pick up tips and tricks.

    After successively loading the full sbf and truning my R2D2 droid into a stock Droid 2 unit I loaded the on-line update and everything worked OK.



    Well mostly OK ... I could not use any of my rooting programs to root the newly updated phone .... sigh... back to Google to hunt for a fix...


    I found it here...

    Pete's Motorola Root Tools

    Yes, it says it's for a Droid 3.... But it works for my R2D2 masquerading as a Driod 2 now.



    It's not perfect, but it worked for me.

    Don't you wish there were a knob on the TV to turn up the intelligence? There's one marked 'Brightness,' but it doesn't seem to work.

    D2-R2D2.zip2nd EDIT: Well this ROM installed okay over top of 2.4.5, however it seems that it is 2.4.0 and the system is not recognizing that there is an update at all and I was unable to download the GB OTA...
    Well it didnt work. Got hung up on something to do with "apply patch check AdService.apk" but unsure. I even found a earlier backup of my R2D2 but it didnt matter. Anyways here is the pull of the Update zip from my cache after it downloaded. Hope someone figures out something soon.

    MightyMax, it sounds like you just loaded up the D2 BG OTA, correct?

    That stinks, chasehammer, I was hoping that would work. How did you try installing the update?

    I tried installing it with Bootstraps Recovery (Clockworkmod) and it didnt even try. then i tried in stock recovery and it said the apply patch check error. So then i tried to load the GB leak again and install the new OTA update on top of that and i get a Signature not verified error. so i have no more ideas.

    I have to say - the new font does bother me. Did you ever figure this out? I can't find anything to customize this and restore the original "r2d2" font that showed up on the clock when it was docked. Yeah, I'm really that anal-retentive that I want my phone's display to match the font on the dock. I just love this little guy....

    In case anyone is confused what I'm talking about, the phone used to look like this when it was docked:

    And now the phone looks... ordinary, with a plain old sans-serif font for the clock. So sad!!

    The mystery has been solved reboot your phone in safe mode by turning it on while holding ok until R2 goes away it should say safe mode in a corner and start downloading. fyi when it restarts after installing r2 stays on for an extremely long amount of time let him sit and spin if it takes longer than an hour than go ahead and restart. it should start up on its own

    Here is the link to the thread, it wasn't a specific file to try...

    EDIT: The technique didn't work for me either...

    guys a user on xda posted this. its a stock backup of R2D2. Restore it in clockworkmod recovery and its totally stock again. Im downloading the update as i type this. Im having good feelings this time.

    Stock R2D2 Backup: Multiupload.com - upload your files to multiple file hosting sites!



    EDIT: This did not work, it flashed but still failed on OTA update
