    I was trying to download the OTA froyo 2.2 update this morning and when it rebooted a sign came up and said update failed. Anyone else have this problem that I am having. I know people say go back to stock, but my phone is stock and the only thing I have done to it is rooted the phone. Can anyone please help

    You and I are having the identical problem. I even went back and changed everything I did to the original settings. Have you figured anything out?

    Do you think if I do a factory reset then I will be able to get froyo? I don't really have much on the phone and I can just download the apps again. I just don't feel comfortable flashing the sbf because I don't really know what my issue is right now with not being able to update the software.

    I am having the same problem. I un-rooted and changed my .bak's back to .apk's and it still did not work. I also have to inquire what do you mean flash the sbf and then re-download?

    Would just doing a Factory Data Reset fix the problem? That SBF Flash stuff looks a bit too complicated for me

    I would try a factory data reset. If that didn't work I'd bring it to Verizon, it's their update let them fix it.

    Yeah but my phone was rooted when I tried, so I figured that was causing the error in the update

    Yes it indeed is a Verizon update but he has root. Not really a Verizon issue at this point.

    I would suggest as Hook said, the factory reset. If that doesn't work it looks as if flashing the SBF file is the only other option. Yes the SBF will get you back to "true stock" and you will be able to accept the 2.2 update.

    Now, if you can hang on you will be able to flash a Droid X rom soon. Blackdorid is working on it now. That would leave you will root capabilites and have a unique blazing ROM for your X

    Oh Yeah.....forgot one thing....

    GO BIG RED!!!!!!!!!!

    So I see. I also see that apparently people haven't got the word that if you are rooted the update won't take..

    Similar to the problem I had when I updated my droid2. It checks everything and if something was missing or changed it failed for me. I would flash sbf back to true stock, as stated above, and then install the ota.

    I had the same problems with every post in here. I was rooted and had bootstrap. I tried to uninstall all rooted apps and unrooted. I tried to do a factory reset and it didn't work. I finally got the OTA to work after i flashed the SBF. So if you are rooted prolly gonna have to flash the SBF to get the OTA to be successful.

    I did a factory reset and re-formatted my sd card. None of it worked. I am convinced that some minor alteration or change I made and don't remember is causing the issue.

    I will flash my phone when I got home tonight and update everyone on it. My phone feels so crappy right now but thank god the app store keeps an inventory of everything I downloaded and purchased.

    flashing sbf from 2.2 back to 2.1

    okay earlier today i flashed an sbf to get back to 2.1 and upgrade ota everything went fine but i didnt like it near as much as the leak with fly x so i tried to restore but of course i couldnt because i wasnt rooted anymore. i tried the droid 2 root method and it said it took and root explorer would work but couldnt get bootstrap to work so i decided to just flash the sbf and get back to 2.1 and then start over but now the sbf WILL NOT WORK!!!! I have tried everything that i know to do and can not make it work. im on windows vista 32bit and i installed the rsd lite patch and a brand new sbf file. i have done sbf pleanty of times before without a problem but not this time... after the sbf finishes it says pass and my phone does nothing it brings me back to the bootloader menu and says service req'd battery ok ok to program connect usb data cablebut no matter how many times i try it will not work

    When you flashed originally how did it work? I cant enter into bootloader mode unless I let my computer (Windows 7 32 bit) recognize the phone with rsd lite. When I click start it puts my phone into bootloader mode and then attempts to flash but it fails.

    The error i get is "Failed flashing process. Failed flashing process. Unable to retrieve interface handle. (0x7027)"

    i am trying again right this second but i get the same error i believe... the first time i flashed it worked great. no error but that was from the leaked 2.2, i dont know if the ota had anything to do with it but thats the only thing i can think of that it can be... my phone wont boot up at all if i hit the power button all it does is go into bootloader but its not the same bootloader as normal, it says service required which i have never seen.... im stuck with a paper weight right now lol


    the error i get is failed flashing process. failed flashing process. phone [0000]: phone is not compatible with multi-interface super-file. (0x703B) phone connected

    If u update to 2.2 via OTA then the old sbf will brick your phone. The sbf is junk to you after the ota update. Bridman, rootzwiki, and many others have been saying all day not to use the sbf after u do the OTA 2.2 update. Hopefully somewhere or someone will b able to fix this problem. Just might have to wait til the new sbf is released.
