    Hello, I just received a droid(rooted and with stock firmware and want to update to 2.2)
    I can currently talk and text on metropcs (they flashed the droid).
    I have read the threads and have found very useful information...but I have two questions

    1. If I update the droid through the system update on the phone will I have to reflash to metropcs? If so can someone please guide me in the correct direction.

    2. Will this update allow me to watch flash videos?...currently when I browse I cannot view flash videos. If no update is needed for this function please let me know how I can implement it.

    Thank you for your time, I look forward to your suggestions and apologize if these questions have been asked before.

    How did you update to 2.2? Sounds to me like you allowed the phone to update itself through OTA. That is why the adb remount command doesn't work. You have lost your root access.

    If that is the case, you will have to re-root your phone. There's a guide in the Droid Labs section that will help.

    good luck

    I rooted and then updated using a method found here on the forums (I was to scared to update through the phone lol) the root and update worked...i was able to fix everything thanks for your help guys. I still have not attempted to add internet and mms if you can point me in the correct direction i would appreciate it. I am currently following these steps but when I complete them nothing happens...

    Well, if you are still rooted, try this to get your stuff working:

    android - whiterabbit.org

    That is the guy that has really tried to put it all in one spot. Apparently kbman has pretty much got it all figured out (he usually does), but you have to have the background knowledge to understand what he is saying.

    good luck
