    Yes it should actually work fine for everyone, very straightforward. I can confirm that you can update even though the phone is left rooted in 3.8.7 with some apps frozen. To be safe, I would advise to go back in to Titanium to check if there arent any important system utils frozen (Update, Backup type utils..).

    Also, concerning rooting, here is a funny occurence and I cant explain it ...

    I am using WhatsApp as many others of you. There, you can set the colours how your led is flashing for notifications. I have it set to Purple type colour which means that the red and blue led have to flash together for it to work. This is not a standard led colour on the Droid Pro, like the others (blue, green, red). For this to work, the phone has to be rooted. I know for a fact that the led wont flash if unrooted.. However, after I attempted aRoot, it now actually flashes Purple again... How is that possible .. ? Titanium Backup can not get root permissions ... seems the phone is almost "soft-rooted" by aRoot ... Any explanations folks? :icon_eek:

    So I am not rooted I am just fresh Android 2.2 build 3.8.7 if I try this and something goes wrong I can't use the old SBF to get me back to 2.2 after going to 2.3 right? Would I be making a trip to the Verizon store?

    I'll add my observations as well...I'm using SetCPU... and it looks like it is working as I can see the scaling working when i sit and watch it. However I'm in read-only mode so I can't configure anything. So it looks like any "Root" apps that have changed system properties in 3.8.7 have carried over. But any apps requiring root access to run will not recognize they have root. Superuser will actually still show the apps as "allowed" in my system.

    Thanks for the instructions. I would just add a couple of additional points of clarification from when I just ran through it.

    For step 11 you hit the enter key on the Droid Pro physical keybaord after you select the option with the volume rockers to apply the update.zip

    For step 12 there is LOTS of text that scrolls up on the screen and can be hard to read. Eventually it will indicate that its done and will highlight the reboot system now line (blue text). It takes a while to update so be patient. To reboot you once again hit the enter key on the physical keyboard to select that option that was highlighted.

    The first boot takes longer than normal so again be patient

    Other than these points of clarification the instructions worked like a charm on a stock device that was previously running the 3.8.7 stock release. Gingerbread booted right up and seems to be working fine.

    Just installed GB without wiping or clearing cache and it installed perfectly. All of my settings and everything stayed the same. The notification bar looks alot cleaner and the layout just seems a lot better.

    Hey is there a way to downgrade? Not rooting the phone is just killing my battery. I would rather have droid pro with froyo and root than gingerbread at this point

    you should be able to get back to froyo in the same manner that you upgraded to GB... you would simply need the froyo update.zip, go in thru recovery and update that way....i could be work but it makes sense to me..

    my issue is that ive tried 2 times and im still getting the signature verification issue:icon_evil: i have followed the instructions to the t and still having issue. i am saving it the initial .zip file to my computer, going into the 2.3.3 file, and extracting the update.zip directly to my sd root....and nothing.... please help

    Did you backup your froyo rom before upgrading to gb?? If you did you could simply flash your recovery rom back to the phone....if not, you'll have to search thru the site here to find a froyo updated zip....id help but I just finished changing over to gb and I lost my root....along with tethering...:(


    I just dodged a HUGE bullet...so I finally got my recovery to take the gb update.zip...took about 10 minutes to upgrade.... when I went to reboot...it got stuck on the droid eye screen for 30 minutes....and I tried rebooting into recovery, would not let me into recovery....somehow, miraculously after 10 minutes of me freaking out...my phone responded and TAda! My droid pro is now running gb! !! Scary ordeal though....ohh and I lost my root:( wonder iii z4root works with gb??
