    Rooting is the foundation for everything "else". the big deal is for all of us beyond just a "root". In order to get the update, for us themed/Rom'd..it's a big backup process or sbf back to stock. Then update.

    What else is affected on your DX? All original bloat there? That would be a big deal if your update took with original 2.2 ota apps missing. Are you themed or deodex'd?

    MY best guess is that because the apps are still present in their original placement on your DX, the update doesn't care if they're frozen.

    Many, myself included, decided to rename vs. freezing, or some just outright deleted. All hurdles to getting back to stock.

    Glad yours was easy cheesy.

    I'm rooted as well. All I've been using is Titanium to freeze some of the bloatware. I also removed 'Email' and 'Emergency Alert.' I downloaded 2.3.34 and tried to install. My phone powered off and back on and said Update Failed. Could anyone steer me in the right direction?
    Thanks!

    Gonna have to replace the stuff you removed to be able to do the 340 update. Wouldn't hurt to unfreeze the other bloat as well.

    I unfroze the rest of the bloat. I can't find the stock Email app (2.2) or the stock Emergency Alert app (1.0.0) anywhere in the Android Market or by googling it. Any idea where to find those? I haven't tinkered with the phone at all besides removing these two.
