    My droid incredible was rooted, I received an OTA update earlier, but im assuming (because my phone was rooted) it did not update to 2.2. So I downgraded my phone and am now trying to manually install 2.2. I downloaded the files and went through the process but am getting errors. Can someone help me. I extracted the file to my desktop and a few folders and a zip file named "firmware" showed up. I renamed the "firmware" file "update" and then copied it to the root of my sd card. But I am getting an error. What am I doing wrong? Do I need to copy all of the folders to my sd card? and no, I did not name it "update.zip".zip.

    Don't 'unzip' or extract the files. Leave it as it is update.zip

    The file you downloaded should be renamed update.zip, not update.zip.zip and definitely not extracted. That's the os's job to extract it to the appropriate folders.

    Thank man, that solved my initial problem, but now it gets a little further and then I get a crazy error and it aborts the installation. Any thoughts?

    You have to have the update.zip file copied and pasted to your sd cards primary file list. I've seen it called a root list or basic directory. However you say it has to be saved there for it to work.

    I don't know. The way I did it, I lost EVERYTHING. Im sure you can back your stuff up, but I didn't bother. I haven't had the phone that long.

    Im not sure what will happen, but Im pretty sure it wont work, but It also might brick your phone. I downgraded first.

    -Could it be that my sd card doesnt transfer files fast enough? Its an older card and Im sure its not very fast.
