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

    My R2 will not install the OTA upgrade but it is downloaded and sitting somewhere. Is there a way for me to pull it off of the phone and upgrade using clockwork? Of course if I can do this I'll be glad to share the file.

    Thanks.

    I dunno where the location for the upgrade file is, but if they have a leak file that's the only way for you to update I think if you have removed a bunch of the stock apps or bloatware

    Upgrades are usually just updates.zip stored in the root of the SD card.

    OK on my SD card is Blur_Version.2.4.5.A957.Verizon.en.US.zip dated last night when I downloaded the update again but did not let it install.

    If that's it what's the next step for me to use it and to share it. Is it as easy as renaming it to update.zip and then clockwork?

    I do not know what it would take to be able to share it. I do know that it is not as easy as just renaming it and flashing it in clockwork. The update is not like a full ROM. It literally patches or updates the existing apps. Which is why if you are rooted and have frozen or removed a number of apps then it is likely the install will error out if it is looking for something that isnt there. The only full apps in the update would be anything new that is being added.

    Plus, theres no SBF for the R2D2 that has all of the Star Wars stuff. I dont know if you could SBF with a D2 2.3.20 SBF and just apply the R2D2 update on it and have all of that stuff back. And since this isnt a Custom Rom, you can flash it from stock recovery.

    Well, if what some people are saying is true, then I need a list of files that originally came with the R2-D2. I did the one-click root and I believed I might have removed some things, but I'm not entirely sure. As well as I've been looking for the R2-D2 SBF and have had zero luck. It'd be nice if someone, who already has the Gingerbread update, could make an SBF file of their phone. However, I'm not entirely sure how successful that would be.
