1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I have a VZW droid on 2.0.1 and have followed the steps listed on android central to the letter to manually update to 2.1. The installation keeps aborting.

    assert failed: file_getprop....

    E:Error in /sdcard/update.zip
    (Status 7)
    Installation aborted

    any ideas?

    Did you make sure it was named correctly? Right click the file and check the properties to make sure it isn't update.zip.zip. Mine added the extension so I just named it update

    I have a question... if you manually update, will you get future updates pushed to your phone by Verizon? For example if say 2.2 was released?
