    i need HELP I cannot update my rooted DX I am in a pickle. help Ok my phone is rooted thru Z4root. It was a permanent root unfortunately, well for me anyway. I am not a Tech Savy as I thought. So I obviously have decided to go this route and It is getting me very far. I tried so many sites, and youtube videos on how to upgrade my Droid X from 2.2.1 (2.3.340) to the newest version:
    2.3.3 (4.5.596) I have tried everything.
    I restored and backed my droid, but I backed it up after I did the 'perma- Root' so when I restore it goes to that point after booted. I am new to the tech abbreviates... bare with me..


    anyway,


    when I download the file to my SD card, I rename it as update.zip and select 'update update.zip' It fails with error message 7.. an error reading the SD card


    What all APPs do I need to download (i.e. Droid2strapper.....) and also I still have the original ROM as well... what ROM do I need?


    I have no booted apps/ programs installed right now, I know that my phone is perm booted because I have the SuperUser App after I did the factory/ wipeout reset.
    Do I need to wipe my S/D memory card? (just a thought, the error message stated cant read SD card)
    maybe some who has gone thru this process can help.. greatly appreciated

    If you had changed your rom.. you may look for RSD lite and sbf back to stock .. I had to after partially bricking. Or using zroot, you can unroot your phone.

    Ok so you are rooted on 2.2.1 with z4Root....if you want Gingerbread you have to install the Droid 2 Bootstrap and then download the patched method two-part zips from mydroidworld, install the two of them in succession and then you will have rooted .596 Gingerbread.
