Download: Official DROIDX Gingerbread 4.5.596 for Rooted Users

The official Gingerbread (v4.5.596) update for the DROIDX started last night for soak test members, but a version has already been released for rooted users thanks to @P3droid.  There are essentially two different methods to get you upgraded since there are a variety of leaks running on people’s phones.  You’ll want to read all of the instructions carefully and decide which one is you before proceeding.  

*WARNING* – Hate to throw a big warning at you, but you need to understand that all of this stuff is risky.  You need to understand the entire process before you begin.

Method 1 (if you are running a GB leak 588/591/595) [preferred method]:

There is a specific file below for your build that will upgrade you to .596.

*NOTE from P3 – IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE MOST CURRENT RADIO .12P THEN YOU WILL NEED TO SBF BACK TO .340 AND THEN USE METHOD 2.

Method 2 (to upgrade from Froyo):

SBF back to 2.3.340, root the phone, and then apply the PART1 and PART2 files below.

Files:

[For Gingerbread Users] – ODEXED | DEODEXED

[For Froyo Users] – PART1 | PART2

__________________________________________

*Note 1 – When you finish with this process, whether you are coming from Froyo or a leaked GB, you will be on official .596 with root access.

*Note 2 – Files seem to be going up and down.  We’ll do our best to update them, but you can find current ones all the time at the source link below.

Instructions (running Gingerbread 588/591/595):

1.  Download the GB file of choice from above and drop on SD card.
2.  Bootstrap and reboot into recovery.
3.  Install the .zip file just as you would a ROM or other file.

*install .zip from sd card > choose .zip > install.

4.  Enjoy!

Instructions (running Froyo):

*Phone must be in stock 2.3.340 state with root access.

1.  Your phone is running the 2.3.340 official Froyo Firmware.
2.  Your phone has been rooted.
3.  Your phone is using the Droid2 Bootstrap program (Do Not Use DroidX Bootstrap).
4.  Download both PART1 and PART2 files from above – drop them on SD card.
5.  Bootstrap into recovery.
6.  Install PART1, followed by PART2 without rebooting.

*You should not leave recovery until both files have been successfully flashed.

7.  Once both have finished, reboot your phone.
8.  Enjoy!

    I already bought the droid x bootstrap recovery, why can’t I just use that instead of paying another $3 and getting the droid 2 bootstrap recovery?

  • Anonymous

    This is not as bad as it appears to be. Plus you need the new GB build to run some better upgraded custom ROMs. Wow, what a difference! The new market jacked up my GB .596 permanently for ANY version of the market. I had to SBF back to square one on stock Froyo .340 but the end result was well worth it.

  • Garry Gauldin

    Well, my install said part II aborted at the end but it booted up and is running just fine. 😮

  • Playa007 Lm

    u r freaking awesome thanx a ton 4 this info works great 🙂

  • mwganson

    Many thanks for this.  I updated from Froyo (rooted with z4root) using droid 2 bootstrap and the 2 files part1 and part2.  I ran into a snag at first when the droid 2 bootstrap program said there were failed asserts.  I thought the part1 file must be corrupted, so I checked the md5 checksums (listed at mydroidworld) and they were both correct (should have done this first, but…).  It turns out I had used an app called antec app manager (a great app) to freeze some of the unwanted system files I didn’t need.  When the droid 2 bootstrap tried to update those missing (frozen) files it generated an error message and aborted the update.  So, I booted back into Froyo and used antec to defrost all of the files I had frozen.  After that, the droid 2 bootstrap was able to update using the 2 files without a hitch.  Just thought I’d pass that on in case anybody else runs into this issue.  I was perfectly happy with Froyo except Netflix can stream directly to the phone if using Gingerbread, which it can’t do with Froyo.

  • Scaceres5

    Hi guys i was running froyo rooted with Z4root and all the suddenly i had to update the phone to gingerbread now i have no root and cant get gingerbreak or Z4 root to work they just keep trying and trhying while i sip mny beer and nmothing i dont know much about bootloader and other stuff but i am eager to learn .. can someone help me get my root back Thanks and Cheers !!

  • ATechGuy

    I had forgotten I had installed the clockwork mod. Anyway, I was using the “Method 2” approach and had rebooted. I then told it to install from sdcard zip and pointed it at the part 1 file. Some assert failed, in apply_patch_check (“/system/app/BackupAssistanceClient.apk”,blah, blah) and stopped doing things with Status 7. So I then went ahead and started part 2. Which it completed. I know I’m screwed at this point, but figured I would post it so others who might get this will have something to go on.

  • Pswayze80

    sends me to the bootloader screen awesome…

  • Shellhouse58

    so this will forsure update my radio? 🙂

  • Kiwiruss

    It worked as advertised. I reverted to Froyo from OTA Gingerbread, wiped  and reset data, installed both zip files and Im running rooted gingerbread now.
    Thanks a Bundle.

  • Exclusiveimag

    I brick my phone using this method… I only flashes the motorola logo now

  • MeHere2

    Will this wipe my DX?  I have .340, rooted and using launcher Pro.  I dont want to have to re-setup everything, plus all the data I have on the phone.

  • Matty ICe

    So will this look just like Gingerbread that was released????

  • Guest

    Thanks a million Davros, your instructions worked flawlessly!

  • johnnyboy

    Why do we need to use Droid 2 Bootstrap and not Droid X Bootstrap? Just curious.

  • Kstacy Ks

    Hey guys, I am running 2.3.340, stock rom, with a little bit of theming from metamorph (black status bar, green lock screen slider…). Using Droid Bootstrapper, will it still work with the metamorph theming?
    Thanks

  • Jaustin

    Anyone else having problems with Z4mod I have 1.3 and have installed and reinstalled and restarted my Droid X several times and no go.  Please help

  • Zachary Dowell

    So I did this against the advice of having radio .12 and didnt SBF back. I also had GB version 573. Everything seems to be working fine after the upgrade. 

  • Jackie Robertson

    If I’m running leaked .588 and want to get to .596 and I do not have root access how do I do that? email me directly at dizzydchs AT yahoo please…I’m so lost right now and phone is having major issues

  • niweezy

    If I delete the zip files after download will gingerbread still work?

    • Zachary Dowell

      yes

  • MicroDOC

    I don’t want to beat a dead horse, but I’d like to update to version 4.5.596 (rooted). I’m presently running 4.5.573 (rooted). Is there a path to this update? I’ve seen so many warnings that I’m paranoid about flashing to 596. Can this update be installed without going back to 2.3.340?
    Thanks, Ron…

    • Zachary Dowell

      I had the same issue as you. I went ahead and upgraded anyways against the advice of this post and nothing went wrong. The only thing I had to do was pull the battery and reboot after the install because it got stuck on the droid eye. 

  • OK, I am running 595 my question is do I use Droid X bootstrap or Droid 2 Bootstrap and when I use them do I need to press any buttons after I click reboot recover?  Am I supposed to get tot he clockwork mod recovery screen?

  • Anonymous

    For you fellow novices, Win7 computers do not like RSD lite. When RSD lite flashes you back to stock, if your phone gives you an error message, boot into recovery, clear data factory reset, and reboot. You should come up in stock Froyo from there. Z4root takes a while so let it sit. If it gets stuck, exit, restart. You also may have to reboot and try again.
    Dropping in the two part GB .596 zips and installing them works without a hitch, at least for me it did. 
    Liberty Toolbox WILL NOT load v0.7 onto your rooted GB build. Don’t waste your time trying. You will have to drop the V0.6 zip file to install it. 
    ****Make sure you select “ADW LAUNCHER” during setup of Liberty v0.6. You will get stuck in a set up loop at adding accounts if you select the other option. If you make that mistake, power down, boot into bootloader, wipe data, reinstall v0.6 zip and start over. Been there, done it.

    Liberty Toolbox (donate version, yes I gave up $5) will install your tweaks, mods, etc. BUT it WILL NOT install v0.7 for you. I’ve tried, it won’t do it. Liberty Toolbox is having issues with GB, at least .596.

    Also, there is no more “reboot” option at power down (I liked that). You also can’t share photos from the camera to social networks. You must share from your gallery after you close the camera. I hate that.

    Otherwise, I am digging everything else.

    Please help!!!I have a droid x and was flashing a new ROM (which I think I flashed incorrectly, as in I flashed what I thought was a ROM but actually wasn’t). I can get to the Clockwork Recovery (by pressing volume up and power) however when I choose to wipe the phone I get an error. When I say to wipe the cache I also get a similar error. I tried using SBF (the FROYO Droid X build) and RSDLite (I am able to get to the boot loader menu, by pressing camera, volume down, power). After running RSDLite, correctly (I have done it before) everything works up until the reboot. It gives me a progress percentage as if it is working until it gets to 100%, where it stays at 100% for hours. In the entire reboot process, my phone flashes the boot logo, turns off, flashes the boot logo, turns off, etc. This also happens anytime I try to turn it on.Please, help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :'[

    • Myth90045

      During the RSD, at the 100% what does the comment say? does it say please manually reboot the phone? if it does, what i did was unplug the phone, Do a battery pull and boot into recovery, hold power + Home, when you see the triangle unpress both buttons, and press search key. restore back to factory default and clear the cache. this should fix your issue.

  • IXxFearlessxXI

    Ive been overseas. How can I download 2.3.340? Im running a leaked 2.2 rooted?

  • how do i get from 4.5.573 to something that works with this form of updating?

    • MicroDOC

      Gavin,
      Have you been successful in upgrading from 4.3.573 to 4.5.596? I’ve got 573 rooted and don’t want to flash to 596 unless I have a a good reliable solution. If you’ve made the switch, what process did you use?
      Thanx. Ron…

  • Hemant Chaparala

    So I may be the only case, but has anyone installed both zips and then rebooted, only to get to a screen where is says “Bootloader 30.04 Err:A5,69,35t,00,27

    Battery OK
    OK to Program
    Connect USB 
    Data Cable

    ?

  • yanks7406

    are part 1 and part 2 deodexed?

  • Rickkane

    Has anyone else lost data when doing this?  I updated from GB leak, had no data, I sbf’d back to 2.3.340, the did the part 1, part 2 update, still no data.  WTF happened?

  • bootlooped my phone.  What a pain having to wipe and reflash, the 2nd time with a completely clean phone worked like a charm.

    • guess it was time I figured out how to sbf.  Have led a charmed life and never had to till now lol

      • Akamushy

        how do you sbf cause i am currently stuck in a bootloop

  • Thanks for the tutorial. I am having issues with downloading part 1 and part 2. I have 16mb cable connection, but my chrome f’d up downloading the first file, and so it told me to wait another 30 minutes to download again. Can anyone repost these files on another file server? Please…….

  • REAPER

    This really is not cool!!!! Stuck in boot logo cycle…tried everything, battery pull,power/home reset,power/camera froyo reset…several times…:[ WHAT NOW !!!!

    • Myth90045

      try formating your data and cache.
      while the phone is off, hold down the home key and power on. wait till you see then the Triangle, then click on the search button ( magnifying glass) format the phone and the cache. then reboot. see if it still bootloops

  • For the Froyo instructions, why is the version # in the PART1 and PART2 file names 2.3.340. Aren’t we trying to upgrade to 4.4.596?

  • SpeedyT

    I had 4.5.595, used the first method. Now i have 4.5.596 but my baseband is still .7p…  what is the consequence for not having the .12p baseband? Bootloop? ‘Cause mine installed without a hitch. Should I SBF and redo, even though everything is working fine?

    -Thanks

  • Ok so, this how to is well, to say awesome would be an under statement. But the thing is i screwed it up some where. i was on GB 595 and down loaded ODEXED installed great i would say no troubles but the thing is i don’t have SU (aka root) ability anymore. what did i do wrong and how do i fix it so that i have GB running Rooted?

  • Buckgrad

    Looks like a lot of people have questions, and none of the experts are visiting this post to help anymore. Hopefully you guys can get your answers somewhere. I kept researching on the web when I didn’t get responses, and finally figured it out for my situation which was different. Word of warning…don’t jump into the process unless you’ve thoroughly researched the process. DROID LIFE: it would be nice if there was a page where the noobs could get thoroughly explained basic info on how to, without ticking off others with basic questions, which seems to sometimes occur. Hey, we all have to start somewhere, right?

  • HELP!

    I’m a noob who downloaded 588 a few weeks ago.  I’ve never rooted before (and therefore don’t have boostrap or any backups).  Do I need to be rooted to install this using method one?  I’m worried I dug myself into a hole here…  If I do need to be rooted is there any way I can root my phone with 588 having never rooted it before? Thanks for your help guys.

  • Buckgrad

    EXCELLENT! Was in the soak, and not happy with the ota. Rooted. 596 is running MUCH better. THANKS!

  • Mgriffiss

    Should I get rid of my Droid X Bootstrap that I have on the phone already?

  • Abeistegui

    I have a question. I’ve updated to gingerbread through the OTA update. It was rooted with z4root. I’ve now lost root. Do I need to SBF?

    • i have the same thing with mine what did you find out?

      • Abeistegui

        Not exactly sure right now. Because all the instructions are to install it if you have Froyo or leaked. Says nothing about if you currently have the GB update OTA. That’s what I’m wondering. I didn’t see this post until after I did it 😛

        • Myth90045

          Hi all, hope you found your answer. if not, from my 3 day experience with the OTA, you can not get root. YOu will have to SPF back to 2.3.240, then find the rooted gb. i did that, and i have GB. however, I do not have the latest one. im have 4.5.573. but the roms require the latest version

  • Buckgrad

    Quick question before I continue with the second method.  I downloaded the parts 1 and 2 files, but I’m concerned that they are the right ones.  They are titled Blur_Version.2.3.340.mb810.Verizon.en.US-Part1 and Part2.  Isn’t that froyo??  Just want to make sure I will indeed be getting rooted gingerbread.

    Also, finally got ticked off enough with VZW to root the X.  WHY did I wait so long??!!  Rooting was easy with z4root, and flashing back to froyo was simple.  Will never go back to stock unrooted.  This is going to be fun.

  • Tduty6

    Have leaked gingerbread 588, not rooted will method 1 work for me

  • Raptor

    Ok i need Serious help…. I want to root my DX SOOOOO bad its not even funny sadly, i am a noob…. so i come asking for guidance… i kno it was described above but it all seems foreign to me… i am running the OTA Gingerbread update that came out on the 1st of june so i am on 2.3.3 and my system verison is 4.5.596… so if anyone can break it down for me in rookie speak that would be amazing!!!!! thanks for any and all advice!

  • blakjakdavy

    Anyone having 3G issues on this? When I leave my phone on the charge overnight connected to wifi, in the morning when I leave for work, the phone will not connect to 3G without a full reboot. A soft reboot won’t do it, nor will a 3G toggle app, nor will going in and out of airplane mode. Any ideas?

  • Brettsbella

    when I got to update, it tells me that signature verification failed…help??

    BEWARE NEWBIES…YOU CAN BRICK YOUR PHONE, If you don’t know what you are doing!!

    I managed to screw up my droid x by not knowing what I was doing, while trying to download “rooted gingerbread”. I attempted the the 2 part method.  This post is about what happened and what not to do!

    My droid x running  was running froyo rooted by 4Zroot ( loved it!). I had all the usual,  droid x bootstrap and  titanium back pro for rooted (loved both ). I loved my rooted X and the various apps for the rooted phone.

    According to the instruction on droid-life

    A) Root my phone (done)

    B) download droid 2 bootstrap (done)
          1) Wasn’t sure if I was suppose to have droid x bootstrap running along with droid 2     bootstrap. First Attempt left droid x bootstrap functional along with droid 2

    C) download part 1 & 2 on to my sd card ( this is where things started to go wrong)
         1) part 1 downloaded without issue or so it would seem. The message in my notification bar said that download is complete. (that’s the last time I saw that from this point on)
         2) part 2 attempted to download it multiple times and each time my notification bar stated that download was aborted/incomplete. I deleted whatever parts of part 2 which was downloaded on my card.
         3) After many attempts, I download the files on to my mac, drag, and drop part 2 right below part 1 into the download folder of my sd card in my phone.
        4) Click on Part 1 ( you know, the one that downloaded allegedly without issue)
        5) File won’t open. I forgot the error message exactly. The basic message is that the file is corrupted. ( I  did’t believe it because, I couldn’t imagine how)
        6) Idea???Maybe, I’m not supposed to have both versions of bootstrap. I uninstall droid x bootstrap and decide to drag and drop Part 1 into my phone like  I did Part 2.
         7) I click on Part 1 and nothing is happening.
        8) Thought?? Maybe neither Part 1 or Part 2 are working.  Let’s click on part 2 and see if that is getting the same type of error message that I was getting with Part 1.
     OMG….Part 2 starts to open and do it’s thing. I new I had to stop part 2 because  part 1 is supposed to go first.
        9) How do I abort??  Pull the battery!
     
    D)  ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE!!!
          
           1) When I replace the battery, First thing I see is red motorola symbol.
           2) My phone goes black, then kick into bootloader ( what the heck is that??)
           3)  Basically my phone appears to be in the equivalence of DOS.
           
     OMG, OMG, OMG….Now I’ve really done it!  Guess what?  There is no direct way to get to clockwork, titanium back or anything else. It says at this point it’s OK to program. It’s official “Little Red Riding Root” is screwed! There are no crumbs for her get out of the woods. The woods keep getting deeper and darker, because now it’s not ok to even program( As if I could). Other then the obvious ???  This is now draining my battery even though the phone is plugged into the charger.  Now it’s not ok to program and it says my battery is low! This is hard to believe because the back of my phone feels like a hot plate.

    ROOTIN LITTLE BOYS & GIRLS SHOULD BEWARE!  If you attempt the “easy” method 2 to getting the rooted gingerbread and there is any glitches. STOP.  Seek professional help. WARNING: DO NOT TRY TO FIGURE IT OUT!

    I tried everything. My computer wouldn’t even recognize my phone anymore! I looked through various forums and I couldn’t find a solution that worked for me. Various  possible solutions included reinstalling the software from a pc ( I have a mac). Solutions involved find drives, programs, running said drivers and programs from a CD. I can’t tell you the last I used a C.D. on a computer. Unfortunately, I had to go to work and my job relies on my cell phone. 

    After a day and a half without a phone, I took it to Verizon.  I told them that my phone went into bootload 30.04 after trying to install an update with a low battery.  Which was kind of true.  Fortunately, my Verizon tech support person had seen this error message before. It took about two hours for them the wipe my phone clean of everything, reinstall the software, and voila they updated my phone to gingerbread. 

    I no longer have root!  I did back up my phone using clockwork and titanium back up to sd card.  Thing is without root access, I can’t get into my back up files.  Just so you know that, I’m not a “complete” idiot.   This rootin gangster  has the phone insured which covers rooted phones and I’m due for my upgrade.  The whole process just sucked and I lost business because I could not be reached by phone.

    Next time (wink,wink), I will immediately go to Verizon see if they can fix it. I didn’t think I could bring my phone to Verizon because my phone was rooted. Now that I know, I’m insurance covers rooted phones…. If they can’t, I will activate my old blackberry storm 2 and wait for the replacement. Unless, the Droid Bionic comes out first!

    Question?? How do I get my root back and keep gingerbread?? Remember who you are talkin too!

  • Dan

    Just to be clear, coming from the leaked, un-rooted .588, all I have to do is drop the deodexed .zip file onto the root of my SD card, and then bootstrap into recovery (using the droid2 bootstrapper)…is that right?  This seems a lot easier than flashing back to froyo but I want to make sure it will work on an unrooted .588.  Thanks!

    Have a bit of an issue. I had the wrong radio version so I got rsd 4.9 to sbf the phone back to 2.3.340. However I didn’t get a full sbf apparently. It still ran to 100% but then said to manually reboot the phone. The phone itself rebooted but not back to the froyo M but rather the GB red M. It is has been stuck on the M for 30+ minutes. I think I should be assuming my phone was bricked by this process? Um can anyone help or am I just sol?

    • Groleau

      1. Make sure your phone is rooted – Use this  to root your gingerbread .588 -http://www.droid-life.com/2011/04/25/root-droidx-gingerbread-4-5-588-using-gingerbreak-v1-10/

      2. Install Droid 2 Bootstrapper
            a. hit bootstrap recovery, it’ll say success when its done
            b. hit reboot recovery, it will just reboot when its done

      3. In the bootstrapper program hit – install zip from sdcard
      4. Choose zip from sdcard
      5.choose the zip file for the new gingerbread 596

      should load successfully then

    Has anyone had any issues restoring apps using Titanium backup between GB versions?  I was using the first leak so will need to flash back to 340 before going to the official GB version.

    I was running first rooted GB leak and I wanted most current, so I SBFed back to froyo, rooted, installed DROID2 bootstrap, downloaded and installed part 1 and 2 of the official from the post. Now I am successful running newest GB but I lost root. Am I missing something? I thought the download was for root version. Can I use Gingerbreak? Thanks in advance!

    I’m runnning a leaked Gingerbread rom (588) with the .12P radio, but everytime I try to install 596-Deodexed.zip from the sd card I get the following error:
    E:signature verification failed.
    Installation aborted.

    Any ideas why that might be happening? I’ve tried surfing some forums, but no such luck yet.

    Hello, I am having some problems with this. I have done all of these steps: Your phone is running the 2.3.340 official Froyo Firmware.

    2.  Your phone has been rooted.

    3.  Your phone is using the Droid2 Bootstrap program (Do Not Use DroidX Bootstrap).

    4.  Download both PART1 and PART2 files from above – drop them on SD card.

    5.  Bootstrap into recovery.

    6.  Install PART1, followed by PART2 without rebooting.

    My phone is already running 2.3.340 and is rooted. I downloaded the droid2 bootstrap, and did the bootstrap into recovery, and tried to install part 1 but it gives me an error and aborts the installation. Any ideas?

  • Tjcard03

    Ok so i rooted my phone with z4 root, downloaded part 1 and 2 and then went to the market. I purchased droid 2 recovery bootstrap but it sat in limbo for over 10 hours authorizing purchase….. I figure it’s my phone telling me to just wait for the ota update. So I hit unroot on z4 root and it said it was unrooted, uninstalled z4 root, astro and went into my phones files and deleted the z4 root. Is that EVERYTHING I have to do to make sure it’s unrooted and will get the ota update?? Sorry I’m new to all of this. Thanks!

  • Why does the ODEXED link point to a file that says “DEODEXED”?

  • I together with my buddies were found to be reading through the great suggestions located on the blog while before long developed a terrible feeling I never thanked the web blog owner for them. The women became for this reason very interested to study them and already have truly been having fun with them. Thank you for simply being so kind and then for using varieties of decent ideas most people are really wanting to know about. My sincere apologies for not expressing gratitude to sooner.

  • Kevo2u

    Will this work for those running the 4.5.573 Gingerbread leak?

  • Wcreesejr

    So I tried these steps. Didnt realize I had to do the spf. So I just downloaded the part one and two and istalled it on my phone. Now my phone does the bootloop. I tried the recovery reboot. But I cant get to the screen. Tried the whole hold down home button and power then let up power when the m shows but I can feel the phone shut off before it goes to the triangel. Any ideas?

    • hence the warning….YOU must read ALL instructions prior to jacking your phone up…

      you should be able to SBF back to Froyo…

      • Harry

        Just to be clear:
        The instructions state that you must SFB back to 2.3.340
        Is it safe to say that I can skip this?:

        I am running OTA 2.3.340
        Rooted Z4
        Made some changes to props, but saved nandroid backup prior to changes.
        Downloaded file 1 and 2
        downloaded bootstrap for D2
        currently downloading deoxed (way slow)

        If possible, I would much prefer to not have to revert back to out of box state and need to setup all my email accts and all that.
        But concerned when I read that some are stuck in boot loop from not following instructions.

        Sorry if this has been covered so many times… I tried to read up as much as possible  🙂

      • Wcreesejr

         how do you do that?

  • Chatte Mitchell

    Thank you guys’ this was the first time I ever flashed anything on my phone. The 10min…reboot time had me spooked the whole time. But once it uploaded the red “m” logo I was so relieved!!! Thank you. I almost thought I was gonna have to download stock

  • Greuven

    I used droid X boot strap and it worked. Just cancelled USB debug mode.

  • Wcreesejr

    So I didnt sbf back and installed part 1 and 2. Now I am getting the boot loop. So much for my first time. What can I do now? Thanks for the help.

    • Timrogers1956

      do a battery pull and try restart in recovery, do the factory recovery

      • Wcreesejr

        How do you do the factory recover? I power on the phone and the motorola symbol goes on then off then back on

        • Wcreesejr

          I mean the restart recovery

    Gingerbread Method 2 Question?

    I have a droid x and according to method 2, I need droid2 bootstrap. I have the droid x bootstrap, which the instructions says not to use. According to the developers of Droid 2 bootstrap is that the the app is made for Droid 2 only. So what do I do?

    I watched the video for returning to stock. I used Z4 root to root my phone.  As I never flashed any roms on to my droid x, I was informed that I could use z4root to unroot my phone. I have titanium pro for root and the regular one as well. I have backed up my phone using clockwork and titanium back up. I also use a mac.  I’m not sure that anyone who addresses my question, need all the extra info. I thought I would put it out there encase it helps.

                                                                     Thanks Stef

      Drod2 bootstrap works fine. I used it this morning from a rooted stock froyo phone.

        Are you saying that droid2 bootstrap works on the droid x? Do I have to delete droid x bootstrap?

      oh and also it multiplies itself in the notification bar

    I keep getting an error about 5 seconds after part 1 starts, doesn’t really say what the error is but it aborts installation. Anyone else run into this?

    does this help with the volume issue and if not when do their plan on fixing the problem cause i love my droidx put this volume issue is killing me everybody else phone is louder than mine

  • I waited for a while thinking it would be OK to wait for the official OTA after being on one of the leaks, couldn’t wait any longer and certainly after seeing the Verizon version was going to be un-rootable. Thanks again for allowing someone with a limited skill-set, the ability to have a rooted GB. It’s very reassuring to see people are cool enough to treat those of us with some respect and not to belittle us for at least wanting to be able to do these tasks.

        • Davros

          Recovery = Home and Power till you get the triangle then Search key
          to SBF     = Volume down, Camera button, and Power.

  • noob

    I’ve never rooted my phone before.  I downloaded 588 about a month ago and have been running it since.  If I simply download this update and install it the way that I did with 588, will I be good to go? And will I receive all future OTA updates?

    • If you’re running 588 follow process one.  As for the OTA’s i’m not sure but GB will be the final OTA the X receives most likely so it doesn’t really matter.

  • MikeyMike

    i really want the update! has anyone in the South Carolina region gotten the update ota?

    I lost my CRT lockscreen after I flashed back to Froyo and applied the GB update.  I tried to flash the CRT_animation.zip that I used the first time around but that bricked me (boot loop). I had to SBF all over again.

    ok. So I had gingerbread 4.5.595 installed,not rooted. In order to use this update, I have tried using gingerbreak 1.2 but it didn’t install superuser. So I installed superuser myself. I can open superuser fine but when I try to open titanium backup,it tells me that it can’t gain rootaccess. In superiser menu it doesn’t list rom manager or Droid 2 bootstrap either. When I flash bootstrap recovery I get success notifiaction but no superuser access granted prompt. And when I press reboot into bootstrap recovery nothing at all happens. Please help.

      load up the bootloader and SBF back. Turn off your phone, hold the camera button and down volume button then power up. bootloader should load, plug into your desktop and use RSF Lite to SBF back. There should be tutorials on how to do it. 

    • Maciquatl

      This has happen to me before. This is what i did:
      make sure you have a good enough charge battery (70% or more)
      take battery out
      hold power and volume rocker down
      connect to rsd lite (easier if you computer is 32 bit)
      sbf the phone to 340

    • http://www.droid-life.com/2010/09/21/how-to-return-droid-x-back-to-android-2-1/

      That’s how to SBF

      Use RSD lite 4.9
      moto drivers 5.0
      and the SBF file can be found here to flash back to 2.3.340-

      Use RSD lite to sbf back and you will be good. I bricked my phone a few months ago and that worked for me.

      Yep flash back to the stock SBF, I had to do it yesterday thought mine was bricked for sure.
      Now back to stock waiting for the OTA

  • Aschechter

    2 stupid questions about this. 

    1) If you rooted stock froyo a while ago but didn’t touch it can you use the froyo method without SBF? There doesn’t seem to be a clear answer to this.
    2) Can you use the D2 bootstrap to make a backups?

    • Jay

      I was in the same position.. but moved forward and everything worked.  1) Yes.. you dont have to SBF.  2) Not sure about the backups.  I’m pretty sure you can, but you wont be able to restore a Froyo backup once you are on GB

    FYI, I had some trouble installing the CRT Animation after a successful upgrade to GB.  I had to fall back to a previous Nandroid backup.  Just a warning, but YMMV.

  • any root steps been created for this once you’re on GB? 🙂  i’ve used the PC-less root before. Found 100% success rate when doing it from CLI instead of the “one click” roots. I’ll check forum for more info.  Thanks, all!

    Downloaded files from a few different sources and still getting status 7 error message when installing part1, like a few others. Rooted froyo. is there a fix besides SBF?

    • Anonymous

      I have been trying to figure this out for a week. I dropped both on my sd, named one gbupdate1, and the other gbupdate2. I wiped data/factory reset and cleared cache. Magically it worked. I thought id already done that but I guess not. If you need more help let me know.
      Oh, and I couldn’t get sbf to work so I skipped it. Not saying you should though. I was on 2.2 rooted using z4.

    • I had to ‘reinstall’ all the bloatware that came with the phone, then my error 7 message went away.

  • Kyfry85

    Um, I finished installing and when i hit reboot I got this after the animation popped up

    Bootlaoder

    • Radiohawk

      Use RSD lite to flash back to stock Froyo, plenty of links out here explain how to do it

  • *running froyo/rooted*
    I have completed all the steps however when installing part 1 it just says installing the update for like an hour and a half and the status bar underneath doesn’t show any change what so ever.
    I used droid2 bootstrap but i have droidx bootstrap to perform backups before trying this.  Is having both bootstrap confusing the phone?

    • Anonymous

      I didn’t use either. I went straight from z4 rooted 2.2, installed both in order and now I have gb. I used to and put both on my sd. However, I downloaded both gb files to my church and dropped them on my sd from there.

      • if you don’t use either bootstraps, how do u install the updates?

        • Anonymous

          I do have both bootstrappers on my phone. But I didn’t open either one to install this update. Exactly what I did, downloaded both update files to my cpu, connected phone to cpu and dropped them on sd card, disconnected phone from cpu, turned phone off, hold power+ home and when it shows triangle push search, choose zip from sd, choose zip from sd, load part 1, load part 2, reboot. Done.

          • when i go to recovery through the home+power/search, the only the pops up for options is:

            reboot system nowapply sdcard:update.zipwipe data/factory resetwipe cache partition

            there is no option for choosing an update, and when i rename the file update.zip and hit “apply sdcard:update.zip” it does the same as the bootstrap did (sit and install for forever with no change in the status bar)

        • Anonymous

          I know that my phone used one of them but I didnot open either bootstrap and click recovery. Every time I powered my phone off and back on, it automatically took me to recovery.

  • Mike Pitman

    I see no difference is the Gui or how the phone looks, acts, or feels.  Just another useless update as I can see or notice.

  • 21chip

    You should shorten the file size to Part 1 and Part 2. Like it says up top but  When you download it reads(Blur_Version.2.3.340.MB810.Verizon.en.US-Part1) It is to long to read in the bootstrap you cant tell if its part one and part two. Its off the screen. The first time i download part one it errored out then i tryed to install. i went ahead and put part two in like it sayed above. (Do not reboot untill both parts are in.) I was in a boot loop for hours. Opps
    Dont drink and flash..
    SBF back to VRZ_MB810_2.3.34_1FF_01  redownload part 1 installed installed fine. Long night.
    It all works fine now. Thanks.
    1  Is it me or is the hard keys at the bottom of droid x light a lot brighter?
    2 Sure wish they would have left the color black under the settings, White is to bright.
    3 Nice to see that Short cut to Direct Dail is back.
    4 Just once. in the browser i hit my home page . vrz wanted me to buy a data plan. would not let me go to any sites. rebooted and now its fine.

    • Radiohawk

      I feel your pain , took me about 12 hrs yesterday to recover using RSD, couldn’t get RSD to even recognize the phone until I deleted and re-installed all my Motorola drivers, on top of that my battery went low and I had to make a jumper to charge the phone from my usb port wow what a pain.
      Back to stock now think I’ll wait for the OTA.

    reboot. Is this happening to anyone else? It was fine on Froyo and held
    the 8mp setting. Thanks in advance 🙂

     If I sbf I will loose my apps and contacts right? I can restore my contacts ok but how do I get my apps back?

    • Davros

      When you start your phone after completing the upgrade your contacts will be there and your apps will start trying to load themselves though you may have to manually reload a few. Because those are stored under your google account. the data that goes with those apps will be gone though, unless you back them up with MyBackUp Pro or Titanium Backup.

      you have to go back to froyo then update

  • Dougaljacobs

    Installed from Rooted stock Froyo, probably the scariest thing I’ve done with my phone but it worked out fine after a slow initial boot. Beware that in bootstrap the default file names are too long to read and the text indicating “Part 1” or “Part 2” will be cut off, I suggest shortening the file names so you do not make a mistake.

    • i had the same problem but part 1 was listed first and i’m glad bc i didn’t double check lol

  • Will this keep me rooted once I do it?  I am running stock Froyo.  

    Instructions seemed strange since Froyo is 2.2 but it says “2.3.340 official Froyo Firmware”.  I decided that means “System version” on the phone.  Mine is Version.2.3.340.MB810.Verizon.en.US, so I assume that is the right one.

    Gingerbread for Newbs

     

    1. If your not sure about your set up then SBF back to stock
    Froyo by following This Video. It

          has links in the description to files you need
    to download. Its actually very easy and should    

         only take 30-45
    minutes (if its your first time).  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WMFMNldyrZQ 

        Video credit :
    XDroidRom

    2. You have to be rooted and have the Droid 2 Bootstrap on
    your phone.

        Use Z4Root to root
    your phone. Takes about 30 second to root your phone. http://www.droidxforums.com/forum/droid-x-hacks/13259-z4root-download-links-get-your-root-here.html  Link credit : Wicked @ droidxforums

        Then download
    Droid 2 Bootstrap from the market ($3)

    2. Download the part1 and part 2 files from above to your
    computer (DO NOT UNZIP THEM)

        Connect phone to
    computer in “USB Mass Storage” mode.

        Drag and drop the
    2 files you downloaded onto your sd card (NOT IN ANY FILE,  you will

        See them at the bottom of your sd cards files
    list)

    3. Open Droid 2 Bootstrapper and click “Bootstrap Recovery”,
    click “OK”

        Then click “Reboot
    Recovery”. When your phone comes up use volume keys to scroll down to

        “Install Zip From
    SD Card”. Use camera button to click it. Then scroll down to “Choose Zip

        From SD Card” and
    click it. Next scroll down till you find the “Part 1” file and click on it.

        When it gets done
    loading, scroll down to the “Part 2” file and click on it. When it’s done

        loading you should
    see “Reboot Phone” (or something like that) if you don’t then push your

        power button on
    top 1 time to take you back a page and you will see it. Click “Reboot Phone”

        and let it run. It
    may take a while so don’t get scared, just give it time.

      I have a question…I was part of the soak and I received the update.  I was running stock Froyo just with root only.  I didn’t unroot my phone when before installing the update and now I have the Superuser icon still in the app drawer.  But I have no root.  My question is, do you think it would be safe to SBF back to Froyo?   I figure I can run Z4Root after SBFing and get rid of the SU icon and then pull the update again.  Does this sound correct to you?

        If you sbf back to froyo I’d just try to pull the update (assuming you dont care about root)

            Just want to get back to stock Froyo so I can pull the update again.  But when I put the phone in PC mode, it’s not being “recognized” by the computer.  Asks for a disk to install the drivers.  I downloaded the drivers from your youtube page, but they won’t open or install.  I think it’s because of the winrar program I have installed.

            If your just trying to get back to stock Froyo you just need to use the video from my post. In the description under the video click “show more” there you will find links to download rsd lite, motorola drivers, and the Froyo sbf file. Load these on computer, not your phone. Then just follow the video and you’ll be back to stock Froyo in less than a half hour.
            I suggest saving the files to your computers desktop. They’re easier to find that way.

            key. If that doesnt work pull battery again but this time hold Vol Down,

          i had to sfb back to froyo. i couldn’t get into recovery mode.

          • Cubsoxs87

            where u get the froyo flie

    • Cubsoxs87

      I’ll I still receive the new update if there r new ones

    • Cubsoxs87

      And can get rid of the root after I install it

      • Davros

        If you want to get the ota then sbf back to Froyo and try to pull the update. If you flash any of the files above you,ll get the same thing but rooted.

      i have Froyo….i installed Part 1 and Part 2.and they are on my SD card..i Bootstrapped into recovery and when i go  to install them. i clicked on Part 1 and it says choose Zip file and same goes for when i click part 2….where is this ZIp file?

      • Davros

        Did you by chance unzip them before dropping them on your phone? If you connect your phone to computer via “usb mass storage” and then open on your computer, you should see them at the bottom of the list. They should have that dark box icon and not a light colored one.

      I tried to sbf my phone by doing what the vid said. As soon as I clicked start, it came up saying failed. Would you have any idea of what I did wrong or didnt do?     

      • Davros

        Did you download and install the motorola drivers on your computer? Did you hold down Vol Down, Camera, and Power button to get phone ready before before trying to run rsd? When rsd shows a connected device did you click in it once so that your phones files show up in the left hand box?

        • Yaminski

          Yeah I did all that, and downloaded the sbf file. While in rsd lite, it shows that my phone is connected. Then I selected the sbf file. Then I click start and it says failed

          • Davros

            Try moving the sbf file to either the Desktop, My Documents, or to the root of your C: drive.

            I moved it to my documents and then opened it in rsd, but the start button does not light up to click

          • Davros

            Try the other ones. This sounds weird but it has worked for some. You didnt
            unzip the sbf file did you? Also try it on another computer if that doesnt
            work. Ive seen reports of rsd being finicky on win 7 and vista computers.
            Sometimes works on one but not another even if installed from the same disc.

            Nope, didnt touch the fille other then moving it to my desktop and my documents. What other ones are you talking about? I am using windows 7 though, maybe thats my problem. But I will try it on my laptop tomorrow, even though thats running windows 7 too. Hopefully that works.

          • Davros

            Other one being your C: drive on your computer. Click Start, Computer, and
            drive C: drop it on there but not in a file.

            I got it to work. I used my laptop that was still running xp, and everything worked like you said. So I guess it was just an issue with windows 7. If anyone else is having problems and running windows 7, I would try using a computer with xp. Thank you so much, your awesome!

          • Krymsyn

            The problem (as I read it elsewhere) isn’t your os, but rather bad handling of some code that the program uses during the name calls. The solution is to rename the sbf file to one character with the extension and keep renaming and adding characters until the start button lights up and the sbf runs smoothly. Hope this helps. Like I said, not my fix, but useful info nonetheless.

        Are you running RSDLite as administrator? Shift + Right click on RSDLite and click “Run as administrator”

    • Granted

      It always amazes me when someone calls people “newbs”. It’s like when I read that, I instantly see some guy with tape on his glasses and his huge pencil protector, and he’s giving himself a wedgie, while telling his online friends that he and his online super model girlfriend are really happy and he is going to meet her soon in real life.

      That’s probably just me though.

      • Davros

        I don’t consider newb derogatory. When I finally get away from moto and get a new phone I’ll be the newb. While I am a bit of a techie I am no short, skinny Skolnick 🙂  Me, the wife and my interests.

    • Markfm

      Excellent, painless, fast. Good writeup. When running the droid 2 boootstrap app, part1, as expected, is the first of the two files in the list (at the bottom of the directory listing).

    • Sol

      I was wondering why my phone got stuck in boot loader mode when I rebooted. Did I have to wipe cache and factory reset before installing?

      • Davros

        You don’t always have to but sometimes you do. I personally found I have less problems when I wipe data/cache after sbfing back to Froyo and again after flashing to Gingerbread.

    • Great post man. Wish I had seen it when I started trying to fix it before. I was on the leaked 573 and had a lot of problems rolling back to froyo. RSD lite kept failing instantly when i tried to begin (had the correct sbf file in the C directory and out of the zip). I finally got it working by using a linux burnable iso which had the 340 sbf built right in. Had no problems at all during its installation of the sbf that way.

      Ok i have a major problem. I followed everything step by step. Long story short, im stuck in the boot loop. Recovery will not come up through holding down the power and home button. Tried to SBF twice with no changing result. Im starting to get a little nervous here

      • Davros

        Pull battery. As soon as you put it back in hold home and power. When triangle comes up hit search key. Clear data factory reset, reboot.

          man i swear i was trying that last night. it would not work at all. figured out why my sbf wouldnt work. i had downloaded one to get me current from a leaked 2.3.40 to the OTA one and thats what i was trying to use. Eventually i found a forum post somewhere with the guy having the same problem, so the solution was to sbf to the 2.3.4 leaked version and hallelujah it worked.  

          When i installed the zipped part 1 of the file i received an error message. i guess i should have stopped there instead of continuing on.

          FYI SBFing is 100X easier and quicker using linux. You can use the same commands just change for the file names. Sure beats the heck out of RSD

    • SpeedyT

      I had 4.5.595, used the first method. Now i have 4.5.596 but my baseband is still .7p…  what is the consequence for not having the .12p baseband? Bootloop? ‘Cause mine installed without a hitch. Should I SBF and redo, even though everything is working fine?

      -Thanks

    • Lhommedangereux

      didn’t work for me… failed applying patch during flash… so flashed file 2, went smooth, back to file 1 and again failed at patching blah… sorry i nandroided it back already so i don’t remember exactly.  any help is greatly appreciated… facebook me please…  facebook.com/lhommedangereux

      Please help!!!

      I have a droid x and was flashing a new ROM (which I think I flashed incorrectly, as in I flashed what I thought was a ROM but actually wasn’t). I can get to the Clockwork Recovery (by pressing volume up and power) however when I choose to wipe the phone I get an error. When I say to wipe the cache I also get a similar error. I tried using SBF (the FROYO Droid X build) and RSDLite (I am able to get to the boot loader menu, by pressing camera, volume down, power). After running RSDLite, correctly (I have done it before) everything works up until the reboot. It gives me a progress percentage as if it is working until it gets to 100%, where it stays at 100% for hours. In the entire reboot process, my phone flashes the boot logo, turns off, flashes the boot logo, turns off, etc. This also happens anytime I try to turn it on.

      Please, help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :'[
      It is stuck in the boot loop and gives an error on the factory reset…what do I do?!?!?!?!

      • Davros

        1. Have you done a battery pull?
        2. If you cant do a delete data/factory reset I’d try starting over with redoing rsd lite. use the files from my post (assuming theyre still there) they are full sbf files. I guess there are some partials running around and cause problems.

    • niweezy

      I get error message: assert failed: apply_patch_check (system/app/CityID.apk
      is there a work around?

    • Harryo

      Hi, my phone is rooted and the version is 2.3.15. I down
      loaded file 1 and 2 to my SD card. I used Droid Bootstrap 2 to try to install.
      I got an error that says I need to add a patch/check. I have no clue what this
      means, do you and can you explain.

    • When i looked at my system info i still had the stock 2.3.340 and so i didnt do the SBF thing. Now im stuck in the reboot recovery part and it will not install part one completely. it says 
      E: Error in /sdcard/Blur_Version.2.3.340.MB810.Verizon.en.US-Part1.zip(Status7)Installation aborted… any idea what i can do to fix this? i went ahead (probably foolishly) and continued with part two thinking that maybe it was an error resulting from not having part 2 done. I probably shouldnt have touched anything, please let me know what i can do to at least keep my phone as it was before, if not continue the process and get rooted GB on my droid x. Thank you in advance 🙂

  • Leering

    I’m new to all of this, but I am tech savy so I can understand technical explanations.I’m running completely stock non-rooted Froyo with a .07P radio. Will I have to SBF to use the non-rooted update.zip. Also I understand that I will have to use the stock recovery on it, so will I lose anything or is it just like getting it OTA?

    • Brandroid

      You don’t need to sbf. You will need to download z4root and run it to gain root access, then download and run droid2 bootstrap to get into recovery. No need to wipe. Install both zips and reboot. Google z4root to find that apk. Get d2 bootstrapped from the market or web.

    • Blacktoolmaker

      • Admalek04

        for the Full Stock Version (Signed) yes, that should work.  And it’s always good to do a data/cache wipe when upgrading.

        • MrToTo83

          what system are you currently on? official froyo? 

          • Fflan513

            yes froyo 2.3.340

          • MrToTo83

            you need to root your phone, download z4root and the you need to get droid 2 recovery bootrap ($2.99). hit bootstrap recovery the reboot recovery, use camera arrows to coose file from sd then find part one, installm, then part two. 

            i take no responsibility if it does not work.

          • Fflan513

            already rooted with z4root and got droid 2 bootstrap. Downloaded Part1 and Part 2 to a folder on my SD card…now what

          • MrToTo83

            open bootstrap and hit both buttons “bootstrap recovery” and “reboot recovery” then select file from sd card while your in recovery. after part one is comples do part two.

          • Fflan513

            select the whole zip file?

          • MrToTo83

            yes. keep them as zips

          • Fflan513

            select the whole zip file?

          • Fflan513

            the Part 1 file and Part 2 file need to be on the root directory not in a folder I guess?

          • not sure but def easier

          • MrToTo83

            no, but you will need to know where there at

          • Fflan513

            I got to the install zip from sd card…highlighted it but how do I get it to allow me to choose the file. Obviously I’m a newbie at this. appreciate your help.

          • MrToTo83

            camera button

          • Fflan513

            thx so much, it said installation aborted, dang, what now?

          • Brandroid

            Your phone needs to be completely stock 2.3.340 froyo. Have you removed any system apps?

          • Fflan513

            no, it is completely stock

          • open bootstrap, choose create bootstrap recovery, wait a second for that to work, then reboot in recovery from the bootstrap menu.  once in recovery choose install zip from sd card, find the part 1 file on sd card using volume up and down keys, instal 1 then 2, then choose reboot from the menu.

          • Fflan513

            thx, I’m working on it now, I’ll post the results

          • Fflan513

            Part 1 and Part2 are zip files…what do I install from them?>??????

          • put them on the phone’s sd card, bootstrap recovery can read them as is

          • put them on the phone’s sd card, bootstrap recovery can read them as is

  • Castvic

    Attempted to go from Rooted Froyo….

    got an apply_patch_check error “/system/app/AccountAndSyncSettings.apk” then some hash. followed by
    E:Error in /sdcard/download/Blur_Version.2.3.340.MB810.Verizon.en.US-Part1.zip

    Any advice?

    • Anonymous

      sounds like corrupted zip/bad download….redownload the zip.

      • Castvic

        Yeah I just gave that a shot and am running into the same error. Thinking I might try restoring from a backup and trying again.

  • Fflan513

    How do I install the part1 zip file?? I have it on my SD card. Somebody help please

  • Absolutely easy.  Upgraded from rooted .588 to .596 in about 5 minutes… didn’t have to wipe data or cache.  Everything went smooth.  P3droid is a god.  Thank you!  🙂

  • pleasehelp

    error status every time i try to flash PLEASE HELP

  • Neiche

    i’m confused. I’m running rooted stock froyo. If i upgrade following the instructions will i have rooted gingerbread???

    • MrToTo83

      same here

    • Umm it says in the headline :”for rooted users” so I’d assume so

    • No, you have to be rooted to go into clockwork recovery

    • CultLdr

      Yes, the two part file (do not leave recovery after flashing the first part) will give you gb and rooted

    • CultLdr

      Yes, the two part file (do not leave recovery after flashing the first part) will give you gb and rooted

  • Anybody doing a data/cache wipe after the 1, 2 install from Froyo?

  • Tuff2me

    Does this give you rooted gingerbread? I can’t lose my WiFi tether.

    • Masterchiefb117

      HAHA ME TOO!!!

    • MrToTo83

      gb knows your tethering tho and automatically swithches to the verizon system from what i have seen and used. unless i missed something

      • Spaz

        Yeah, I just ran into this.  WTF?  Is there a way to get around the VZ tether?  How about PDANET?

        • MrToTo83

          not that i have seen or heard but like i said i could have missed it

        • Spaz

          PDANET still works w/ no problems.

        • Chuckles

          I had this problem too running .588 on the droid x. Downloaded “wifi tether patch” by team black hat… Now it works.

  • Fflan513

    download part1 zip file and part2 zip file. How do I flash this crap? Help somebody, what file inside the zip do I need to click?

  • fartbubbler

    for FroYo users, is the two part zip  Odexed or Deodexed?

  • Royredman4

    how do you switch from droid x bootstrap to droid 2 bootstrap? 0__o

    • Uninstall droid x bootstrap and install droid 2 bootstrap

      • Spaz

        I didn’t even uninstall the x bootstrap and just ran the 2 BS over it and it worked like a charm

    • Masterchiefb117

      YOU CAN DOWNLOAD DROID 2 BOOTSTRAP ON TOP OF DROID X BOOTSTRAP

  • Joe Doherty

    I have the .588 leak.  Will it auto update to .596 when the official comes out from Verizon?  It’s been pretty cool but has messed with my phone a little bit.  I want an official so I can see if it’s the leaked OS or the phone itself.

    • no you can’t update via Verizon’s OTA from .588. to get the OTA from verizon, you have to be on 2.3.340 (2.2.1) for it to come to you. Otherwise, use either the Deodexed or Odexed version p3droid has posted

      I know right? Why can’t P3droid just provide the upgrade file so we can do it manually?

      • Tcal

        I meant a non-rooted version; STOCK OTA

          Will I have to reinstall everthing after froyo to ginger manual install?

  • files already unavailable for froyo users 🙁

  • Sonicboomin

    I made a nandroid backup of stock rooted froyo. Can I restore that instead of sbf

    • Anonymous

      no.

  • Sonicmax2k2

    Where can I get an SBF of 2.3.340?

  • Can method 1 be ran over liberty 0.4? I assume so because its based off of .588 but just looking for a confirmation. Thanks and great work P3 and Droid-Life.

    • I wouldn’t flash these over anything not explicitly stated as compatible by P3.

    • The rom also states its baseband version BP_C_01.09.12P, which is the correct radio version?

    • I went ahead and installed over liberty 0.4 (wipe data/factory reset). So far no problems, the only thing i noticed is the boot logo did not change (still rocking liberty boot logo)

    more mirrors are available at mydroidworld.com.  The link is at the end of the original story.

    • I don’t see the post there about rooted Gingerbread.

      • Anonymous

        if you really don’t you need new glasses or should probably not be trying this.

  • Tech Guru

    Sigh. I’m not rooted and do NOT want to use any bootstrap program.. it messed my phone up last time I used it and had to flash back to stock which is a PITA because I don’t like setting everything up again from scratch.

    Also I’m on baseband .07P which apparently isn’t the newest one? I’m on completely stock OTA Froyo, so not sure what p3 is talking about..

    • The baseband problem only happens if you’re already on some form of Gingerbread but still with the Froyo baseband. The Froyo update doesn’t have that problem since you’re still on Froyo.

  • Chicharito1

    anybody know if is this GB already  rooted or need to be rooted, if the free wireless tether work in this one? anybody know..? thanks guys..:)

  • Part 2 for Froyo is already a dead link. Can someone repost?

  • MrToTo83

    ANyone else get a dead link on part 2? I tried to download it to see if it would finish faster then tbh app. but no go

    • links are getting taken down by someone, p3droid isn’t doing it

      • MrToTo83

        Those a$$holes! They need to leave p3droid alone! There just doing verizon’s work better.

        • I have part 2 downloaded if you want it, if it’s okay to link it. I’m getting all the files just in case for future use

          • MrToTo83

            Since I am not sure if its ok. I will just wait for the TBH to finish. just taking a bit. Thanks tho

      • MrToTo83

  • fartbubbler

    wipe after installation?

    • IvankaHumpHew

      Always good idea, it gets rid of the sync icon. 

  • IvankaHumpHew

     Droid-Life, you must have pulled an all nighter! Thank you for all the info. Great site.
