    Hi all, as the title says my update keeps failing..I have tried it 3 times and it will successfully download, turn off and when it starts installing (picture of the box dumping on the android) the box will turn into an exclamation point and reboot then show an error message that says the software update has failed.. Please help..I was rooted before then sbfd back to stock..i later rooted it again but when i heard the update was coming i went through the whole process of changing back the logwrapper file and getting rid of superuser. Is there any apps that I should have or shouldnt have on my phone that might be stopping me from getting this update?? the only bloat i uninstalled from stock was nfs shift and thats bc i bought the full version..Any input is appreciated...

    That certainly is weird. I would try calling vzw or sbf'ing for good measure.

    Isn't it because you re-root before the upgrade?....i might be wrong but that's my point......9h don't forget...don't freeze any bloatware(any) nor delete any,even nfs shift,all need to be intact,do all of this after the upgrade.

    Just sbf. Either that, or you can pull the original logwrapper from a D2G froyo dump and paste it in. Just don't forget to set permissions properly. Permissions are: RW-R-R I believe.

    I was nervous someone would say that..Does anyone know a way I can backup data to all my apps without root? I have so much information in some of my apps and would hate too lose it all..thanks for all the replies

    I had the same issue. Tried removing bootloader and all that jazz and nothing.

    Did a sbf of 2.4.30 and then applied the update 4.5.607 from another site by clearing everything and then installing.

    Had to do *228 2 to reprogram and such.

    FINALLY IT WORKS then haha.

    Well, the best bet would be to make a CWM backup, SBF, update to 4.5.607, root, install CWM, and then restore /data only from CWM's advanced restore menu.

    Yes - the procedure for Droid 3 applies for all current Motorola Gingerbread phones. I have personally tested it on my Droid 2 Global - worked like a charm!

    help!!!!!!

    I really need your help. I am kinda new to all this. Well sort off. i dont understand how to sbf. I have a droid 2 that I think is rooted. Its flashed to cricket though and one of my biggest worries is loosing the flash. I love this phone but i really want gingerbread. I get the same error as you did. about a third of the way through the update i get that exclamation point and my phone reboots.

    Get the standalone .zip file for your update; if you're a Droid 2 user, it should be somewhere around in the Droid 2 section. Put it in your SD card's top level directory, and rename to update.zip. Reboot to recovery, and choose apply sdcard:update.zip. Check the error message carefully, it probably mentions either /system/bin/logwrapper, or some of the bloatware.

    SBF does reset CDMA programming, so if you resort to SBF, you'll have to reflash the phone to Cricket.

    Edited after rereading!


    The SBF process (and the flashing to cricket) will require a computer. The zip file process can be done on your phone. There are links for the Droid 2 Global zip in many places, including this forum. G.Y. referred you to the Droid 2 section as you mentioned that phone rather than the Global.
