    2.1 to 2.01

    Hello,
    Can I (if I can find) change the 2.01 file to upgrade.zip and install it like a upate?

    I got a droid from a friend who didn't like it.
    He is returning to his beloved Storm2, anyway he OTA to 2.1.
    I want to take it to 2.01 so that I can root it.

    Noticed a thread about backing up, but didn't really follow it.

    Thanks
    JW

    If he upgraded it to the official 2.1 OTA update, then you need to use RSD to downgrade back to 2.0.1 and from there root. As far as I know there's no other way to get back to 2.0.1 unless you do it that way.

    OK so I am now trying to get this ti log into my google account.

    I noticed that there is a triangle in the notification bar.
    I have not moved this device over to my # because I need to get it up to snuff before I call about the droid that I am using with issues.

    What is the triangle icon mean?

    Thanks

    To see what the symbol means should just press and drag down the notification bar, should have a more detail about it then.

    So you are receiving gmail?

    This is what you need to do to get back to 2.0.1 http://www.droidforums.net/forum/hac...using-sbf.html I know it says unroot/unbrick, but this will get you to stock 2.0.1, its the only way.

    Yes that is what I used.
    I was on 2.1 and flashed back to 2.01 then rooted.
    BUT the triangle was there right after I flashed back to 2.01.
    Before I rooted or updated to UD9.8.

    I did swipe down the notification bar and it isn't there...

    That is why I am clueless as to what it is.

    Thanks

    Any chance you could get a screencap so we can see this triangle?

    also have you tried a factory data reset?

    Well I have drocap2 but the UD 9.8 has a black notification screen so I don't think it'll show well.

    Now I have not activated this device with my # yet.

    That couldn't be for that???
