    I downloaded the update from off the internet and ran it on my Droid X. It failed a few times but downloaded the stock apps that seemed to have changed and finally got the update to run.

    I am now running 2.2.1, or 2.3.340 what ever you want to call it, but my phone now keeps telling me that it failed to download the update. I will turn on my screen and it just pops up telling me that it failed. Its getting annoying, and I don't know if its actually tying to download it or not. If it is, thats not going to do well for my battery.

    I re-downloaded the update via the web and put it in the root of my sd card hoping that it would see it. Seemed to have fixed it for a day, but now its doing it again.

    Any suggestions?

    And yes, I am rooted.

    Make a nandroid backup and see if a factory reset fixes it. If it does, then restore that backup and see if a combo of a factory reset and titanium backup (so you don't lose things) works for you.

    The factory restore did fix it, restoring my backups now to see if it comes back. Just taking a while.

    Nope, restore of applications and data brought back the issue.

    Obviously something is not agreeing with the new .340. That could take a while to single out the bad apple.

    Ya, it could take a long time. Is it an app I have installed, or is it the data. Doubt its the programs that I have frozen, as after the Titanium restore the programs were not frozen.

    I was more hoping that there was a service that could safely bee disabled that would stop my phone from checking for update.

    I'm having the same exact problem. Im running apex 1.3

    downloaded the update from off the internet and ran it on my Droid X. It failed a few times but downloaded the stock apps that seemed to have changed and finally got the update to run.

    I am now running 2.2.1, or 2.3.340 what ever you want to call it, but my phone now keeps telling me that it failed to download the update.

    Might have figured it out.

    I went into Titanium Backup and froze Updater 2.2.1. Now if I check for updates, it still says that its downloading, but it does not tell me that it has failed. Have not seen the random message saying that the update has failed in an hour either.

    droidinmind, if your having the same thing, try to freeze or rename the updater program and see if that helps.

    I'm having the identical problem. Updated via the OTA a week or so ago. Running Apex 1.3 now (and loving it). Started getting the message that the phone was trying to update earlier today. I hope there's a better solution than freezing the updater app, however, as that will sure make it difficult to receive any future updates....

    All you have to do is either unfreeze it, or do the update manually, but yes, I would like to find a better way.

    I did a hard reset and am in a clean Apex 1.3 now. No update notifications any more. Will slowly reinstall apps to test if something else is screwing things up.
