    Ok, so I'm new to the Android OS, yes I have searched pretty much for the last solid day, so please don't say "go search".

    Anyway, here's the problem, (I think) and what I've tried....

    I am getting the error 7 when attempting to update. prior I had loaded 928 black gloss and assumed (I think incorrectly) that wiping user data would restore my phone prior to that mod.

    my question at this point is when the official update comes out will I have the same issue? I guess since I'm such a newb, waiting might be my best bet as long as it doesn't fail the same way. If it will, I'll do more searching on how to completely remove that mod.

    to date, the only mods I have done are, I have rooted, added the black gloss theme, added some apps from the market (including some root only apps), but I have not removed anything stock, well unless adding the gloss theme removed stock items....

    thanks for any responses

    Did you apply the "back to stock" theme? Remember every thing is fixable, well almost everything.

    Do you still want to update to 2.2 with root?

    I never did any themes but I am thinking your theme didn't remove all the way that is why you are getting that error. And yes when the official build comes out you will have the same problem more than likely. At least with the theme, some believe updating will kill your root. There are some threads in the hack sections of not removing themes properly and what to do to fix them.

    Maybe following the unbricking your droid guide in the hacks section would be a good option and just go back to stock and wait for official release.

    Check out the 928 X thread... me and another guy who had the 928 Black Glass theme had tons of issues going to the 2.2 Just follow what is on there look for my name hailtothetheif83 for my responses

    I had to flash fab's back to stock update.zip, and 928's back to stock also had to add back my sticky notes.apk for some reason it was messing up my update

    928's theme is awesome but changed a lot more than I knew about

    took a little bit to figure out but am now loving my X with 2.2!! dancedroid

    Hope that helps you a little


    After you do all those added above I suggest you download the NEW version of Koush's bootstrapper and ROM manager (yes they work together now per Koush's twitter) the ROOTED 2.2 update is in clockwork

    Exactly what I had to do after I loaded 928's theme

    Indeed it was an awesome theme but it went to far into the phone especially before we had the ability to Nandroid the stock first.


    That was the first thing I did after getting rooted 2.2 on my X made a Nandroid right away

    I tried(back to stock) but it failed. I will try again. Not sure abt wanting 2.2, might just wait for official. I'm seeing now, that if official changes from leaked it might be a huge deal to go back to 2.1 before loading 2.2 official
