    i concur that someone that already has the GB update installed needs to make a backup and upload it for us. Im thinking this is going to be the only way to get around the update checking issue.

    After several failed attempts here were the steps I took.

    History: I never installed roms, only ever rooted the phone.

    1. Root phone.
    2. Reboot.
    3. Went to /system/apps/ to rename all *.BAK files back to *.APK. (I renamed a lot of bloatware files to *.BAK instead of deleting them; for example Blockbuster.apk).
    4. Unroot phone.
    5. Reboot.
    6. Remove SD card from phone.
    7. Did a factory reset - settings, privacy, factory data reset.
    8. Ran the OTA update - settings, about phone, system update.
    9. Successfully upgraded to Gingerbread.

    I agree with chase, it would be greatly appreciated if you could provide a backup for us. Most of us have installed other ROMs, I know I had to in order to keep it from rebooting constantly on its own. That may affect the update process as well.

    Sure, but need you to tell me how or show me a link with instructions because I have never done that before.

    I believe what you're going to have to do is install the Z4root app. It allows rooting and unrooting. Once that's installed you then need the Droid2 Bootstrapper program which allows you to make a clockwork backup which is saved on the SD card. Thing is you'd want to do a factory reset before any of this so your personal data isn't in the backup.
