    I am having problems getting 2.2 onto my Rooted DX 2.1. I have attempted two routes thus far.

    First, I am using Bootstrapper for the recovery and ROM Manager Premium. I was rooted, used Bootstrapper, Flash Clockwork, did the ROM back up, wiped my data/cache and it attempted to install 2.2 that was downloaded from the ROM Manager. There was an error in the installation, and was brought back to 2.1 unrooted. I re-rooted my DX, restored my files and am back to square one.

    I have also tried the download update.zip file. I have followed the following instructions...

    FROM A ROOTED PHONE:

    1. Run "adb shell"
    2. Run "mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/system /system"
    3. Run "mv /system/bin/su /system/xbin/su"
    4. Copy the update.zip (download below) to your sdcard
    5. Reboot into recovery (power down - hold volume down and home button and press the power button)
    6. Run update.zip
    I copied, not extracted/unzipped the update.zip unto my SD card (Rooted phone). I then go into recovery mode and attempt to install the update.zip from the SD. I receive an error is will have to reboot...

    Does anyone have any suggestions?!?!?! I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong....

    How did you reroot? Did you restore your phone from a back up from Bootstrap?

    I used a program from www.alldroid.org (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) to root my phone to begin with. It's been running great, as I've had it rooted for a month now. When I went to reroot, I used the same program, without problem then restored my phone, by Bootstrap, back to a few minutes before I did the 2.2 installation.

    If anyone could help me with this issue, I would definitely appreciate it!!!!!

    Well sounds like you are doing everything right, only thing is maybe the adb commands didn't take right. I would say get root explorer from the market, I know it isn't free but its a great program. Its only 1 or 2 and then you can go verify that the su is in the xbin and not the bin folder. Where did you get that zip for the update? You sure its credible?

    I did as you suggested. I bought RE and I can verify that the "su" is in the "xbin". The update came from the only site I could find it. The site address is (Download Android 2.2 for your Droid X | Hijinks Inc.)
    Is there another address that has been verified to have a credible update.zip? I can tell you that the download was 67.6 MB, which might not say much.

    In speaking of the ADB, if my memory serves correctly, there were no errors on either line, but I could have been wrong.

    I downloaded your .zip for the .apk and took it, placed it in system/app section, ran it, and installed it. I didn't have an "bluralarmclock.apk" - only a ".odex" file. I did try the installation both with moving the .odex file out and with it in the system/app folder.

    After that, I went to the recovery mode and I am having the exact same error.

    OK then your system isn't right if you are on 2.1 you should not have any ODEX files. Those come when you upgrade to 2.2, looks like you have some 2.2 stuff still in there. You could try deleting all the ODEX files and trying again but don't think it will be that easy. Sounding like you might have to sbf back to 2.1 and root and upgrade 2.2 again.

    Did you delete something?
    You can download all of the apks from /system/app here:
    http://www.hawkeye411.com/droidx/systemapp.zip
    !

    There is the full zip of all the default apps. Maybe trying replacing all of them and deleting all odex files? I could be way off on that one someone please correct me if I am wrong. Do that and see if you can upgrade without having to sbf.

    Course you did only get the error on the blurclock so that might not be needed. But something is keeping the update from seeing you are a fresh 2.1 with root that is why it is failing.

    I'm guessing a general wipe of data and cache will do the trick? After that, verify there are no 2.2 - .odex files in there, re-root and then try 2.2?

    Yeah if you want to boot into recovery and wipe cache and data and reboot and see. You shouldn't loose your root though, so just do that and see where the system is and if there are any odex files in there after.

    Ok. I have taken all of my system/app files and transferred them to my computer. I then extracted the original system app files onto that folder with no success. I still have the same error.

    I have never used the sbf method. How does this work?

    Its no problem make sure you one do a wipe data and cache from recovery first. And install your drivers with the usb debugging mode off then turn it back on after they are installed.
