    Is anyone else getting a system update pushed to their phone? I have, but for some reason it won't install.

    Lucky you. Does the update seem to bring any benefits? Does it allow you to retain root?

    I hope they fixed the sporatic menu buttons. They work most of the time, but not all the time as they should.

    I just updated about 20 minutes ago and really see no change. Only time will tell. I am not rooted and don't plan to be so I can't comment on the root. I am sure someone else will chime in later.

    Droid 2 update 4.5.621 breaks root, and blocks all known exploits, which means at the moment you cannot re-root after installing the update. However there is a way to retain root and still get the update.

    If you update to 4.5.621 and want to retain root you must install RootKeeper first.

    RootKeeper is an app available on Google Play. Simply install, open, and run a backup. Then after installing update 4.5.621 use RootKeeper to restore root permissions.

    I can confirm it does work, and for right now at least is the only way to be rooted on Droid 2 system version 4.5.621.

    Have you frozen or uninstalled any system apps?

    I had frozen them, but I defrosted them before updating. If I list them, can you tell me if I have all the required bloatware?

    Amazon Kindle, Backup Assistant, Blockbuster, CarDock, City ID, NFS Shift, Skype Mobile, Swype, VZ Navigator

    Thank you.

    Hmm, that looks like all of them to me. You could try clearing your cache (by powering off and holding power and x buttons).

    You might also want to try re-downloading the update. The update should be stored on your SD card, deleting "update.zip" and manually checking for updates again should re-download it.

    I just thought of something that might be preventing the update: the Kindle and Blockbuster apps were a few versions outdated. I've updated them and am now downloading RootKeeper.

    I'm going to try downloading and installing the update one more time. If that doesn't work, I'll clear the cache and try again.

    The update still failed. When I tried powering on while holding down X, all I got was the Android by an exclamation point, no menu or option to clear cache.

    It appears I am in the same boat, unable to successfully update.

    Chris215, are you rooted too? I'm wondering if having root doesn't prevent the update from installing, even with the bloatware present.

    I am rooted. I have tried to update while in root and also unrooting first through Root Keeper, still no update. In the past with previous updates I don't recall needing to unroot prior to the update. The update always took root away.

    Looks like Googarola dropped the ball with this update.

    if you altered system files, or stock apps, that can cause update to fail
    or maybe more likely, they are not pushing update to your phone yet, to save bandwith

    The update was pushed to my phone. I have changed my fonts, boot animations & logo. Possibly the failure lies within those changes.

    I would suggest not updating, because of, Rooting and SBFing issues
    if you want to block, rename update apk?, may have to look it up

    if you want update, best bet is to SBF

    edit:stop update
