    I am on 2.3.15 rooted and i tried to update to 2.3.340 and it says update failed. The only thing I can think of is that I deleted some bloatware and I dont think I backed it up, but not much just cityid blockbuster amazon mp3. i wiped data and cache but failed again. I heard that unrooting is not required, so I guess I have to sbf but I heard that some sbf dont work on ota 2.2 and tha it bricks phones. So can someone tell me where to find the right files to sbf, thank you.

    I don't have the link for the sbf on hand, maybe somebody else could help you out there.

    To receive the ota it doesn't matter if you're rooted. Your problem is most likely because of your missing bloatware. If you have a backup before you changed any of that, restore it & then try to update.

    If you don't have a backup, the next easiest way would be to just sbf.

    Most of the sbf's will be on mydroidworld.com or xda-developers.com. basically you need to match up your system version (in this case it looks like 2.3.15) and your android version (2.2). Then you are going to use a program called rsdlite to install or flash the stock sbf. ****make sure you read everything about how to do it first**** as always there are no guarantees you won't brick your phone, but I haven't had any issues using sbf's yet. Flashing the sbf will return you to out of the box condition but you will be able to ota to 2.3.34
