    okay so i was trying to get the new update but while rebooting clockworkmod comes up and then it gets ruined and doesnt update. so i tried to find out how to remove it and i found a good way, delete /system/bin/hijack and /system/bin/logwrapper
    Then rename /system/bin/logwrapper.bin to /system/bin/logwrapper but when i try to delete them it says this file cannot be deleted so i thought i need to re-root but it is taking forever and not doing anything. someone please help i want gingerbread :( P.S. im not rooted right now.

    If worst comes to worst you can always sbf to stock (froyo/gb) and then wait for the ota to show up.

    You need to be rooted to mess with any of the files in the /system partition
    Easiest method, post rooting, is with root explorer, as it does the mounting of the system partition as read/write for you. if you're using a different file explorer, you may have to manually mount the system RW.
    First, uninstall the Bootstrapper apk.

    to mount the system read/write if you are going to use a different file manager:


    open terminal emulator
    at the $ prompt, type su then hit enter
    you should get a # prompt.
    then you need to type this exactly:

    busybox mount -o rw,remount /system

    then hit enter.
    then open your file manager and then delete system/bin/hijack
    then delete system/bin/logwrapper
    then rename system/bin/logwrapper.bin to system/bin/logwrapper
    then reboot.

    If you're still on 2.4.330, just sbf and only clear your cache. Should be able to boot up and let you update. Just be sure to activate first (*228).

    Nah... I was scared the first time, but after doing it about 20 times to my Droid X and 2 or 3 times to my Droid I got some confidence.

    Follow the instructions perfectly and if something weird happens, post up before proceeding. It's pretty straight forward, just be patient, start with a full battery, and don't unplug until you are 100% done.
