So with the promise of a better phone through 2.2, I took the plunge and rooted my phone today... to be short my issues are:

1. Google maps wont update. (says I need to manually update?) How do I go about doing that if the market wont update it?

2. I tried to install Chrome2phone but the phone side app wont register device... after some research I seem to have rooted with the not-so-current version of froyo... as that seems to be everyones answer as to why it wont register.

2.a. so in order to update my froyo release do I need to revert to version
2.0.1 and start from ground zero or can I just somehow update?

subset: Where is the best place to stay current on new rom releases and froyo versions?

Thanks in advance.

1. yes google maps doesnt update but it is still installed and works perfectly. 2. chrome to phone is working in the most recent version of froyo. 2.a. no you can just do it over the 2.2. it worked fine for me

I have both those programs/apps so I just need to put the zip for froyo on my sd root and then run clockwork and have it boot the new zip? that simple? no need to re-kernel for my overclock or any of that?

sorry for the noob questions.

its fine. once u download the .zip inside it is a folder. should be called froyo- somethin somethin. then u put that folder in the nandroid folder of your sd card then do a nandroid restore of that. more deatailed? if so ask :)

Ya put the folder with all the stuff inside of it in the nandroid folder. And I don't remember if u have to redownload apps before. Also make a backup just to be safe. But I don't think u have to redownload them
