    i tried installing frg22 over stock 2.1 (unrooted) and no wipe, ended up in a boot loop. this might not always be the case, but another user experienced the same issue.

    after a wipe, i reinstalled frg22 and couldn't be happier. i'd try installing it over your stock 2.1 first. if it works, great. if not, you had to wipe the data anyways and it only takes a few minutes :)

    I'm sorry, but there is no such thing as "nearly bricked". It either is bricked, or it isn't bricked. And if you were able to use RSDLite to flash an SBF, then that only means one thing, it wasn't bricked.

    Once something like a phone/console/PC/etc. is bricked, there is no coming back or saving it. Bricked = forever.

    I apologize if my terminology isn't meeting your exacting standards, but Verizon is replacing the phone because the reps in the store he took it to couldn't fix it. +1, +2, and +10 for the rescue squad pulling the phone out of the fire. Hence the nearly part. :)

    The moral of the story was that there's risk in any flashing/updating situation.

    I'm thinking of The Princess Bride at this point. "Mostly Dead". Maybe I should have put it like that, yes? ;)

    It's not bricked, it's only Mostly Bricked. dancedroid

    FRF57 had it, FRF84B and everything subsequent didn't. There might be a ROM or two out there with it still in.

    I miss it too.

    Alright is it me or does this update take up ALOT more phone memory? I had around 40MB free on FRF81B and I update to FRG22 and I have 9MB free I was able to get up to 14MB but is there any solution to this or is it just how it goes with this update? Other than that it seems to work great! Thanks!

    Anyone know of a Droid ROM which will have all pure Froyo features? I mean like native WiFi hotspots and usb tether, and 3d app cube and of course root (and yes I know that by asking for root I'm not really asking for pure froyo)

    Are you talking RAM or what?

    What do you mean by "native WiFi hotspot"? An option similar to Verizon's USB tethering option, whereby you go to settings>wireless and networks>tethering? I don't think any of them do; just use the WiFi tethering app for root users from the market or get one from here. As one dev put it, "why compile something in that people might not use and that's available for free on the market?". Keep in mind that currently it's Ad-Hoc only. I believe the CyanogenMod team is working on a way to turn it into infrastructure mode instead of Ad-Hoc, but I could be wrong. Verizon axed the WiFi tethering capability, so that's about the best you can do at the moment.

    Do I need to rename the file?

    I downloaded the non-deodexed install file, put it on the root of the sd card and flashed into recovery mode as the instructions prescribe. Everything seems to work I the clockwork loader, then when I tell it to reboot the phone gets stuck in a loop at the red eye. I am running rooted 2.1 (from the last OTA update) with superuser permissions and have now tried this process twice with the same results. Any help you guys can offer is greatly appreciated.
