    As stated early in this thread.... Don't unzip the file.....Read the first post and follow the instructions. Verify your MD5 checksum if you are worried about file integrity or having the complete file. MD5 checksum is posted in the original thread. check previous post for how to verify MD5.

    File Info

    Size: 284.7 MB (298481300 bytes)

    Your file size does seem to be incorrect for some reason. If you are downloading on your phone, try using a computer. People have had issues with downloading files to there phone and the file not being complete.

    how to update to 2.3.40 while keeping set up?

    Quick question for ya Mad (or anyone else):
    Just got my Droid X in the mail a few days ago, a refurbished model from Verizon (I'm poor but I like fancy things lol) and before even activating it I had that sucker rooted and bootloaded. I've been messing about with my OG Droid for over a year now, so none of this was new to me besides the stock version; I saw that everything warned about being on 2.3.40 before proceeding, and I assumed that since I had just received this model from Verizon with a notice saying "Your Droid has been updated to the newest version!" it would be updated to, well, the newest version.

    Apparently I assumed incorrectly.

    Right now the phone as a whole is working fine; I'm in Liberty 1.0, with the Linear theme, totally able to make phone calls etc. However, media of any sort is shot-- no Pandora, YouTube, .mp3s, the H.264 test on Quadrant Standard, you name it. After doing some research, it's clear that the reason I'm having these issues is because I wasn't on 2.3.40. And I kinda like music, so that doesn't fly. However, I somehow already put hours of work into the beezy before realizing that I had this immense problem, so now I'm at an impasse.

    I think the easiest thing to do to not lose anything would be just to make a Nandroid backup of my current ROM, install your update.zip, reroot, rebootload, then restore. However would that work? Would restoring a Nandroid backup simply revert what I would be updating by installing your update.zip? You have to understand, I came from an OG Droid which was nearly unbrickable and had no bootloader; you just balanced your version of ClockWork, your Baseband, and your ROM. I'm still not entirely sure what it is exactly I'd be updating to 2.3.40 and 30.04. I'm assuming one is Moto's stupid bootloader, but the other... yeah. (btw sorry if I missed something obvious in the OP, I read it and like the first 10 pages of this thread but couldn't find anything...)

    So tl;dr:

    If I'm on a custom ROM/Setup that I like A LOT but need to update to this, can I Nandroid backup, install this, then restore?

    And if that doesn't work, who knows how to backup a LauncherPro setup, widgets and every last thing in the same position? Can Titanium Backup do that if configured right?

    Thanks all.

    Ok, im at the bar and that's a lot to digest, so just yell at me if im not answering your question.

    If I was you, id nand, then maderstcok without a data wipe. If you bootloop, wipe data, reroot, then restore the nand, then you're no worse off than before.

    If you don't bootloop, then consider yourself cured ^^

    If you nandroid restore, you should be all set! Nandroid will replace system, data, etc. But won't replace bootloader, kernel, or baseband, so you'll still be on 2.3.340... which is exactly what you want for your liberty install.

    Just an FYI for both you and Mader... coming from ANY non-blur based ROM and doing Maderstcok is guaranteed to bootloop due to mismatch in framework (and the data that is stored for that framework).

    Let us know how it goes!

    Ended up wiping, installing maderstcok, nand restoring, reinstalling Liberty 1.0 without wiping, clearing Dalvik Cache then rebooting, reinstalling Linear, clearing Dalvik Cache then rebooting....

    And now I type this from the droidforums app with a quadrant of 1706, and Pandora.humming along in the background. Thanks guys!


    Now I sleeeeeep
