    Greetings to all,

    I have searched and tried and searched and tried and I'm stuck...

    I have a DroidX ...

    System Version : Version.1.13.604.MB810.Verizon.en.US
    Firmware Version: 2.1-update1
    Baseband version: BP_C_01.09.04P
    Build number: VZW
    ERI version: 5
    PRL version: 51926

    ... I'm trying to get to ver 2.2. I have rooted using GUI DroidX Root Program that was available from GUI DroidX Root Program - Windows Only - Droid X Rooting - AllDroid Public Board - GUI DroidX Root Program - Windows Only - Droid X Rooting - AllDroid Public Board - AllDroid.org > Home. No issues there. I have verified that I am rooted by using Terminal Emulator. I also installed DM Updater. When I run DM Updater I got a message that I get back says ...

    "Your phone is rooted, but flashing recovery on this device is currently not supported"...

    I'm not sure where to turn now. I have tried booting in to recovery and using the update.zip method I get dumped in to the Android system recovery (2e) with an error E:Can't open /cache/recovery/command

    I'm just not sure where to turn now. Any help would be greatly appreciated...

    Thanks,

    Tom

    You cannot flash a custom recovery until the Droid X's bootloader is cracked, which could take some time. On the bright side, you can expect an official OTA release of Android 2.2 (Froyo) for the X sometime in late August.

    Don't try and put 2.2 on your DX at this time. There are methods for other phones but if you try them on the DX you may end up with a non-functioning phone.
