    Update to 2.1 taking over an hour ...

    Started the 2.1 update on my Droid over an hour ago. All that has shown the whole time is the white Motorola logo on a black screen. It won't allow me to even turn off the phone manually. Should it take this long? Should I take out the battery and SD to reboot the thing? I did that once before when it stalled out during regular use.

    Thanks
    Jim

    ok then I can assume you are not rooted lol. Make sure you have enough power (ie not below 40% battery). And if it stop loading you are safe to do a battery pull. The update is on your sdcard and it will kepp bugging you until it install. There are rooted people who were trying to avoid the update and has done a bunch of things and are still being bugged to install the update.

    Mine is doing the same thing. I pulled my battery and rebooted but it still comes up the the Motorola logo. This is OTA and nothing is rooted.

    Hope that works. I am going to sign off for a bit to drive to work. But I will check this thread again when I get to work to make sure you are good to go.

    Since you are not rooted there should be nothing holding you on the motorola "M" unless your battery is low. Maybe allow it to charge in the wall charger for a bit then try it again. If you still have a problem we can see about fixing it in recoverymode. But for now try charging it first.

    Me too ... just did the battery pull, put it back, and nothing but the logo. Should I just take it to the Verizon store?

    I have a full battery. I just pulled it off the charger this morning when I saw the update. I did that and it loaded the update (had the picture of info being transferred to the phone and the status bar). It completed that and rebooted and I haven't been able to get anything but the Motorola logo since.
