    So I got a new Droid from the mail because the 2.2 update broke my old one, and the new one i recieved is on 2.0.1. Its been close to 12 hours and I hadnt recieved an OTA for 2.2 so i tried to do a manual update and I get:

    E:Can't open /cache/recovery/command

    and the install fails, it says a buncha random crap and then says

    (Status 7)
    Installation aborted.

    What can I do to get stock 2.2? Do I gotta root? If so, easy, but I promised my parents i wouldnt ;)

    of course you can always root ;)

    if you are running 2.01, i believe the phone needs to update to OTA 2.2 update (FRG01B) first. Then after a reboot the OTA 2.2 update (FRG22D) should push to the phone.

    **if you install the OTA 2.2 update FRG22D you will NOT be able to root.**
    the exploit has been patched/removed from this ota. you would have to *sbf* back to 2.1 or 2.01 to gain root again.

    this would be until the devs figure something out.....;) oh wait they have...

    download and flash this rom to your phone.
    Droid - FRG22D, rooted, deodexed, busyboxed **Rooted Users

    then you will have a rooted FRG22D.

    My Droid World - Droid - FRG22D, rooted

    i myself would just steer clear of the OTA releases from VZW. it's a hit and miss thing.

    I just tried it. Worked fine.

    I put it on the sdcard. Rebooted to recovery. Chose apply zip from sdcard under advanced. Selected rom. And flashed. No problems.

    Did you wipe: data, cache, and dalvik?
