    Having the same problem. I believe it is because (for me, at least) some of the factory apps have been deleted. Unfortunately, I'm an idiot and didn't make a proper backup. I've tried a factory reset and tried to use the update.zip thing but it said no such file existed. I'm completely green to this android business...probably in a bit over my head now.

    Basically, I think i need to reinstall the blockbuster, 3g mobile hotspot, VZ Navigator, and skype mobile apps in order to do the update. I don't have any of those sdks though. Can anyone provide them?

    we will be fine but dont un-install any more system aps! lol I think its a problem with having clockwork recovery for a droid 2 on the droid 2 global but im dumbfounded as to how to fix that. with rom manager i get errors when i try to download new recovery versions and every good app that i used for the D2 like "team black hat" for example on the D2G there are no yummy leaks yet!!! we are going to need some help dancedroid:beer2:dancedroid

    Having clockwork installed shouldn't stop you from getting the update. And you can't flash alternate recoveries because we can't technically flash custom recoveries on this locked down generation ofphones. Check the stickies at the top of the d2 hacks section, one of them contains all of the apks for the d2 bloatware and you should be able to find what you removed. After they have been restored, try the update. Also you may want to unroot.

    I reinstalled all the bloat I removed except one that I simply cannot get installed is Mynet.apk...the 3G Mobile Hotspot App. I have copied it from the D2 hacks section, and another D2G that was able to do the 2.4.330 update and both times when I try to install using root explorer it says "Application not installed". I'm gonna try the update again anyway, but I don't have high hopes...

    i removed the root and have not un-installed any sys. aps. i froze them all with titanium backup. does anyone know where the system update is stored when it gets downloaded? it opts you to install later so im hoping with my next step i can move it to the sd card and install it from clockwork recovery manualy. im totaly comfertable doing anything with the phone just running out of ideas?? ohh yea and it is the D2G everything has been a lil diff. dancedroid

    Glad I could help

    Drunesta, try thawing all apps, unrooting and checking for the update again.

    That is the factory recovery. Like I said, flashing recoveries from rom manager on this locked down generation of phones does effectively nothing.

    No it shouldn't say that, did you use bootstrapper or rom manager?

    I'm not sure where the update gets saved. My only other suggestion would be to remove cm recovery and try again.

    Update file is patch based. It has patch files, (delta files) not "whole" files. Patch will only work if you have the original file that patch is ran against. You can find the update (it is available for download on the forum), but you can't install it manually.

    I had the same issue, I found a system dump file with all the stock .apk files and I went through and installed them and then set the permissions accordingly and then the update was successfull
