    I've been rooted since Froyo and I want to upgrade/update and or change my ROM but they say I should be running android 2.3.4 . I've dl'd and tried to update but the update always fails. I've tried a factory reset, hard boot reset, installing apk's that were originally on the phone and still get nothing.

    Is there a. Zip I can dl of 2.3.4? Do I need to unroot?
    Anybody else have this problem?

    Please help. I'm not going to install any of my old apps until I fix this issue.

    Thanks in advance for any and all help.

    DO you currently have a custom rom on your froyo based phone? If so you will need to do a full sbf to get rid of it. If you're just rooted froyo, you're okay. If you've removed/frozen any bloatware with titanium backup, they need to be replaced/unfrozen. I've read some posts that recommend you just sbf to be safe regardless. Purchase the team black hat app from their website. Use the 2 part zip (it's odexed), then if you want flash the deodexed version right on top of that. Or do 2 part and then install DSX (no glitches on my phone, great battery and super fast). DSX is deodexed.

    Milski65 - I've beening running rubix blurry 0.3 rom so I guess I need to sbf. I'll look into that app.

    Kasey- Just did a quick read of the link. Seems a lot like the original rooting methods before the one touch apks came out.

    The rooting method within the thread does use the one-click APK, z4 Root. The thread is a complete guide to SBFing your phone, rooting it, bootstrapping it and installing the rooted version of GB before installing the Liberty ROM.
