    I tried to do a software update yesterday and it says the update is downloading but it has been over 12 hours and it doesnt say downloading in the notifications bar. I have tried backing up all my data and doing a factory reset but it does the same thing after the reinitialization. Is there a update.zip or something that can help me?

    You might try doing it over wifi if you have a good connection.

    If this persists, you should take it to a VZW store or call support...

    Hmmm...never heard of them doing that before.

    Did you tell them you had it and the SBF, and would it be OK? They didn't suggest it, did they?

    Interesting.

    If you are not technically inclined please take it into a verizon store and ask them to reflash your phone to the latest update.

    It must been vzw support. When I called vzw they had a moto rep and they wanted me to go to a vzw store. When I told them they did not have the ability and if I could do it myself. They made it clear that people are not to have the rsdlite program.
    Now I did use rsdlite to fix that issue, but I know moto does not want the public using it.....

    so when you are saying they did not have the ability, do you mean that if i take mine to a vzw store they wont be able to fix the issue?

    Sorry to ask a (possibly) n00b-ish question, but is 2.2.2 officially out for the Droid 2?

    My Droid 2 lists as OS 2.2, and checking for an update says I'm fully up-to-date.

    Incompetent Tech Support

    I too experienced the problem downloading the 2.2.20 Froyo update for my Droid 2. Basically, it would just not download the update. This went on for about 24 hours.

    I contacted tech support by phone and they were completely clueless. Their response was to take my phone back to the Verizon store and get another one because it was defective.

    The clerk at the Verizon store then proceeds to tell me that it was because they update had been pulled because it was faulty.

    About an hour later, the update starts downloading and installed flawlessly.

    It's not a Droid 2 problem, it's a Verizon problem.

    Is this update working now? I'm switching out a defective D2 for a new D2 and was wondering.I had no problems when I did the update on the defective D2 on 8/28.
