    hi, i have a droid x rooted with 2.1.. im trying to put froyo on it. so i go into clockwork recovery ,backup,wipe my phone then i apply update.zip. but i get error. it appears that it looks through my sys/app folder and checks to see if all of those apps are there. if one is missing it fails the install.currently it fails on car dock. so i reinstalled cardock and placed it in my sys/app folder then rebooted then rebooted into recovery. i then wiped the phone then tried to flash update.zip and still got the same error.. what should i do? is there a way to flash 2.1 rooted with all the stock apps , then just boot into recovery and flash 2.2?

    My sense is that the E:Error in /sdcard/update.zip (status 7) was caused due to a corrupt download or you renamed it incorrectly. The correct name is update.zip Make sure the is only one ".zip"

    I'm not sure about the car dock. Did you remove the apk for that particular process?

    nope that error applies to the fact that you deleted teh stock cardock app from /system/app.

    go here
    http://www.chadhaney.com/droidXDefault/

    to get it back, put it back in that location and give it the proper permissions

    Check your permissions to make sure they match up with other system apps

    Since you've got a custom recovery, the simplest thing to do would be to just modify the updater-script in the update.zip and remove the checks/references to those files. You didn't want them anyway and the only reason it is looking for them is to make sure they are the correct SHA1 hash (which is what those numbers are) because otherwise the apply_patch to the file (later step) will fail. Just take out the "assert" that checks the SHA1 of those files, and then later take out the line that does apply_patch to the deleted file(s), re-zip, and you're good.

    If you don't want to fool with it, stick the file somewhere that I can get to it (RapidShare, whatever) and then send me a PM with the link, and a list of the files you deleted and I'll make you a new zip. I'm not worried of what Momma Moto thinks about it because I won't be giving you anything you didn't already have -- I'm just giving you back the same files you gave me (which I have no reason to believe you aren't entitled to possess), with a new file of my own creation.

    Dunno. Never looked at the package -- I don't have an X. Since you can only install custom ROMs on a rooted phone, I would assume that the package is meant to be installed on a phone just like yours and it won't care if some of your apps are missing.
