    2.2 ota update wont stop downloading!

    I don't know what to do?? I'm not very knowledgeable with rooting and flashing, (I bought my Droid on ebay already flashed). I think the droid is running smoked glass v6.0. The phone is flashed to metro pcs, everything works great but ever since the 2.2 ota update came out, my phone automatically downloads the update(takes over an hr without wi-fi) after the download it says need a restart in the settings-about phone-system updates page, but there is no restart or install prompt but only the option to download it again. And if I don't the phone downloads it every 3 to 4 hours, slows my connection to a crawl and kills my battery. Please someone help!

    SG6 is an old Rom that might not have an OTA block built in (not sure).

    If you want you can get some info/terminology in link 1 of my sig, then maybe try a 2.2 Rom.

    Should I get rid of my smoked glassv6 and get something newer? What would be the best for my situation?

    Pretty much a call for you to make. Read up on the different ones. I'd advise a 2.2 Rom though.

    Okay so I've seen that the most popular rom is ChevyNo1, so I guess I will go with that one. Is changing the rom the only thing that I need to do?

    Most, if not all, newer custom mods will either

    . Have ota blocked by default
    . Give you the option to block it
    . Have the frg22d fingerprint, therefore not requiring it.

    If you get ss 4.7 from chevy you will be good to go.

    When you flash Chevy's Rom it will put a new kernel on for you so you will be all set

    Okay so I got as far as getting my droid into recovery mode by holding x and renaming chevyno1 to update.zip; however, I have a message saying Finding update package...Opening update package...Verifying update package...E:update.zip install blocked Installation aborted. Hopefully someone can help me out

    When you reboot holding X, what recovery do you get?

    You are sure it's named update.zip not update.zip.zip right?
