    Stuck on froyo 2.2, 2.4.330. I was rooted but unrooted so I could get update from vzw for 4.5.608 but every time I download it and go to install it, it fails. Any suggestions would greatly be appreciated.

    If the unroot process did not reset the counter, VZW sees your device as custom and will not install any update. Check About Phone and see if it indicates modified or custom. If so, you will need Triangle Away to reset the counter.

    It's usually at the bottom. Triangle Away is on the Play Store. Make sure your phone is listed as tested and works.

    Triangle Away is not supported on this device. I've went in on Root Explorer and went in system/ bin/ and deleted hijack and logwrapper and renamed logwrapper.bin to logwrapper to get rid of Droid2bootstrap and went in data/ and deleted .recovery.mode. Is there anything else that could be in the files or system that I've missed??

    Just flash the 608 sbf with rsd lite or use the 608 ezSBF
    Links in my list

    There is no counter in d2g firmware, but it does check build.prop, everything must be stock, anything missing, update will fail, can be rooted, but root will be lost.
