    I have a non rooted droid incredible I download the 2.2 update by the update manager built in or it was already downloaded when I got this phone. I have had it for a little over 3 months I think and all the sudden its acting up.

    It just randomly restarts then goes into a reboot loop that may take a hour for it to actually come on and many times of taking the battery out and leaving it out.

    Now it will hardly stay on at all. It is un-reliable and useless. I switched to my droid 2 for now.

    I was trying to install froyo 2.2 again by manual update.

    http://www.droid-life.com/2010/08/31/manual-update-droid-incredible-to-android-2-2/

    Named the file update(.zip) and it gave this error:

    Install from sdcard
    Finding update package
    opening update package
    installing update
    assert failed: file_getprop("/system/build.prop". robuild.fingerprint")
    == "verizon/inc/inc/inc:2.1-update1/ere27/161494:user/release-keys" ||
    file_getprop("/system/build.prop". robuild.fingerprint")
    == "verizon_wwe/inc/inc/inc:2.1-update1/ere27/203589:user/release-keys"
    E:Error in /sdcard/update.zip
    (status 7)
    Installation aborted

    I read to do this

    I have no idea where you get PB31MG at though. Or am I even doing this right? See as the phone is it is useless. I dont want to sell it and lose money(paid 140 for it) but I might have to if I cant fix it.

    Thanks for any help!

    Sure that's not the 2.1 update? Look at the text in the message.

    It doesn't look you like you were doing the latest update. It should be November time frame.

    Try the RUU method that razor posted above.

    HTC sync did not find my phone but it was not needed to do this? I downloaded both but since the sync did not work I used the other thing to install the 2.2 again. It did but the phone still does not work right. In fact it is actually worse now.

    It just restarts randomly and does reboot loops and wont come on for a long time.

    What else can I try?
