1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I have an original droid. I've had it for about 4 years now (it's not my main phone, I just use it for the following). I mainly use my phone for one thing, Swagbucks. If anyone here does Swagbucks, they know the mobile app is MUCH better on the droid than it is on the iphone. I have been running the SBTV app on my droid while at home and at work now for the past few months. Today I got home and all of the sudden my droid went funky, acting like it was a first time setup and force closing any app I tried to run. I had to do a factory reset. I went to reinstall the swagbucks app, but unfortunately at some point they updated their app beyond my android software (version 2.2.3). They now require 2.3.3 to run. I am in no way asking how to install things illegally or how to root my phone. I just want to install a version of the app I want to run on my phone. OR if it's possible to update my phone to 2.3.3 that'd work too. However, I have already tried going to Settings/About phone/System updates and it says it's updated.

    I *have* done multiple system updates since I bought the phone, so I don't know if the system updates added themselves to the "factory settings" or if my phone is just taking it's time but I do know that before I did the factory reset it was at Android Version 2.2.3 so I don't know what can be updated.

    Any help is appreciated.

    The last ota for the original Droid was 2.2.3. The other way to run a 2.3.x rom is to root your phone.

    If this were me, I'd try contacting the developer. I'd let them know what you posted here & ask if they could help.

    Thanks for the reply. I did send them an email. Hopefully they'll be able to help. I really don't want to root my phone, but I guess if it comes to that I'll have to.
