    When I try to update to 2.3.340.en.US, the phone downloads the update, reboots and then announces that the update failed. I have rooted to phone, but other than that, it is 'stock'.

    Any idea what is happening? And how to fix it?

    Thanks....

    you probably changed something. either build.prop or a framework perhaps?
    if not, then unrooting should resolve the issue - if it doesn't restore a previous backup
    if it still fails, you need to sbf

    Same problem as OP

    System update repeatedly fails. I've rooted my phone, and I did remove a lot of bloatware. At first, stupidly, by deleting, later by changing .apk's to .bak's.

    First I tried updating straight, no luck.

    Tried unrooting, (using http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-x-hacks/107591-re-root-your-droid-x-after-update.html), then updating, no luck.

    Re-rooted, found backups for the bloats I had deleted, and renamed all .bak's to original .apk's. Then unrooted again and tried updating again. No luck.

    I'm just plain having no luck.

    Maybe? I think that's just for if you don't see the update.
    I looked into the different files, etc., and saw patches for all the bloat...so you might brick...might not. I dunno, what I would do is use the .320 sbf file, which I know works. You could try the update.zip and if it bricks you you could then use the .320 full sbf to get you back up and running.

    OK. Thanks. I did 'unbloat' a bit - but I didn't delete the files. I just renamed them. I'll try putting them back and see what happens.

    OK. I 'rebloated' and reran the update and it worked just fine, thank you. But I do have to re-root. Amazing that you have to have the unimportant crap on your phone in order to do a system update. Go figure.

    Cannot root

    Well, now - no matter what I try - I cannot root. I have tried z4root, DoRootWin and even the 'no pc required'. Nada. Using adb, everytime the RATC exploit runs, the pc connection is lost. I have tried switching the USB debugging on and off and unplugging the USB cable and plugging it back in. To no avail. Any ideas?

    Which version of z4root did you try? I have no luck with 1.30 on this phone but 1.0 works like a charm.

    Edit: See you got it rooted, awesome!

    I tried z4root 1.3.0.

    Now I have to figure out how to make this so it isn't such a P.I.T.B. for the next update.

    What a pain in the a**

    Why can't we own the phone and do with it as we see fit?
