To update your phone to OS 2.3.3 version 4.6.8 (the latest) then you have to sbf back to 2.26 version 3.8.7.
    what about use update.zip from 4.6.8 version and force update? will that fail?

    I don't think so because it was not coded to update 4.6.4, it was coded to update 2.26 version 3.8.7. I'm pretty sure the install would fail.

    Thanks so much for all the information! I guess I'll try the sbf this evening, should be okay with all these great guides in this forum. You also saved me some time because I would have tried to flash 4.6.8 over 4.6.4. Thanks again and wish me luck.

    There is a "sticky" (at the top of this forum titled "The official Droid Pro sbf file") with a video you should watch first if you haven't used RSDlite and sbf'd before...it's a pretty good video. The process is pretty simple. One thing I discovered when I had to sbf back to 2.26 is that the video, and some threads about sbf, state to put the sbf file on your desktop. Depending on what version of Windows you're using, that might not work, ie. RSDlite might not recognize the file. The solution, which I had to do, is to put the sbf file in my compute's root director, ie C:\\. I'm using Vista 64 bit. Good luck.

    @jpcalhoun I had to update RSD Lite to V5.4.4 but it worked! Glad to get the fiancee's phone to fully functional. Thanks again for all the help.

    Is there any difference between the 4.6.4 file and the new 4.6.8? If it worth going through all that trouble?

    Well evidently there is. A number of people are reporting issues that were not present or reported under Froyo or 4.6.4. I understand the radio files are different, but I don't know what other differences there might be. As far as functional, and I didn't root 4.6.4 and I don't have root on 4.6.8, I can't tell the difference in function, appearance, or performance. But, like I said, there are problems with 4.6.8 that were not reported under 4.6.4 or Froyo previously.

    Thanks for the reply. Guess I will stick with the 4.6.4. Doesn't seem worth the trouble.

    after reading all 4.6.8 problems, I'll stick with 4.6.4 until a new iteration that fixes battery drain problem
