    About a month ago i had rooted my droid and was playing with ROM Manager. I had applied a stock ROM that had completely screwed up my phone. I had read some topics on the forum and used RSD Lite to restore my Droid to stock 2.0. I was more worried about getting it to work than to find the newest version. Now that its fixed, my phone is stuck at 2.0 and i cannot update to any newer versions. Everything else works fine but i would just like to keep up with the newest firmware. Please help me, i cant find any help and i dont want to go to Verizon.

    Thanks,
    1337 :motdroidhoriz:

    Info:
    Model-Droid
    Firmware-2.0
    Build Number-ESD20

    Find furbearingmammal and teddyearp. Between the links in their signatures you will get up to speed!

    Have you tried to manually update? Are you still rooted?

    Those must have been terribly outdated threads or you flashed the wrong SBF.

    You have two choices -- multiple update.zip installs to get it up to the current build or SBF to 2.2 and then either wait for the OTA push and then a single update.zip install.

    Third choice is to root that version and install whatever custom ROM you might like.

    Why are you flashing kernels instead of full ROMs?

    Okay, I'm going to bump you up to CyanogenMod 6.1.2 because it's their most recent version. Where you go from there is up to you, but this will solve all your problems.

    Download these files and place on your SD card.

    http://mirror.teamdouche.net/get/sholes/update-cm-6.1.2-Droid-signed.zip

    Index of /google-apps/ You'll want Latest HDPI: gapps-hdpi-20101114-signed.zip

    Okay, now boot into recovery and make a backup. Now do a system reset/full wipe/whatever you want to call it. Install the first file, now the second file, and reboot. If you loop something went wrong and you'll need to try again. If everything goes right you'll boot into CM 6.1.2 and you'll be able to move on from there, but you WILL be running the latest code.

    They're in the standard update.zip format.

    Clockwork doesn't require them to be named update.zip so you can just put them anywhere on the SD card (if you download them directly on the phone they'll be in the download folder) and tell Clockwork to install them.

    There's an option to install updates/ROMs in CW, so just use that.
