1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

Any of your Droid froze after the UPDATE?

    After my phone was done with the installation, it tries to restart and the screen just froze.

    screen has the white circle with the "M" motorola sign.

    Did you pull the battery? Haven't heard of this happening to anyone yet.

    I would visit a local Verizon store. Did you do the update manually or did you receive over the air?

    I received it over the air.

    I will go to a local Verizon store after work. Damn sucks to be without my phone! I wonder if i'm the only one that has this issue?

    I'll keep y'all updated.

    How long did it take you?

    I thought at first it was just lagging so i left it. I installed mine last night at 11:30 pm and I woke up at 8 this morning to see the same thing. Black screen with a white circle in the middle with the "M" motorola sign.

    =(

    Try turning it off, then start it while holding down x on the physical keyboard. When the triangle comes up press the camera button and volume up button at the same time (might take a couple pushes) thatll bring up a menu, use the physical cursor pad to select reboot.

    most likely your Droid erroneously rebooted or glitched during the update process... sucks :( good luck with your new device

    At the end of my update I got the error screen
    [​IMG]

    I let it sit at that screen for about an hour and then power cycled it. The phone came back up and the phone info says the FW Version is 2.0.1 Anyway to tell if it really updated to 2.0.1 or not?

    So I took my droid the the local store during lunch. the rep said for me to wait for about 20-30 mins because it's going to take that long for them to look and reflash it. so i went off for lunch. came back 20 mins later and got my phone back working.

    now the thing is that all my settings apps some of my phone contacts are gone! it's like it got reset to original setting and the tech just backed up my pictures and then replaced the contacts with the backed ones when i had switching to the Droid.

    so sad.... =(


    i guess the good news is i got my phone back working again and the new update.

    By welcome screen do you mean the unlock screen? If so not sure what slider you are refering to. If not the unlock screen what is the welcome screen and what slider?

    Update: Now I understand the unlock screen without an unlock pattern. Yes it is now a straight slider instead of the arch. Thanks.
