    Originally i had my phone rooted with Zroot.... wanting the update i unrooted and was unsuccesful in updating. I can download the update but after my phone restarts it installs half way and then stops. I then rebooted my phone... i held the home key and power key to bring up the options menu and i cleared data and cache. I rebooted and redid my droid setup and tried again. Nothing lol. Help please??

    Also... im not super tech savvy right now since i haven't done anything with my phone since i rooted it 4 months ago. I could pick apart the coding of my Palm Pre but im fairly new to droid so bare with me please.

    It's a little detailed for me to go into right now... putting baby to bed... but... do some google searches for full SBF 2.3.340. The files needed are out there with instructions. Use RSDlite ... I think 4.9... don't quote me... just google it. Once you have done this. Z4root... and bootstrap

    There is the full dx sbf. Get reading! Haha. Its really an easy process and important to know before rooting or anything else that can screw up your phone. Watch a video on youtube as well regarding sbf on dx. Hope this helps

    Download the file, unzip it, then run RSD Lite. Put your phone in bootloader mode by having the phone off, then holding the power, volume down and camera button at the same time. Then connect the phone and click the button on RSD Lite.

    Also, download and install the current Motorola Drivers if you don't have them already.

    If you are on .595, I would recommend installing the ZombieStomped rom. I think it might also work with .596, but I am not 100%
