Fix: Logwrapper Issue when Installing Froyo for DROID X

We may earn a commission when you click links to retailers and purchase goods. More info.

If you were running into the “logwrapper” issue when trying to install the leaked Android 2.2 update for the Droid X earlier, we apparently now have a fix. ¬†The issues seems to be stemming from Clockwork Recovery’s DX Bootstrap and can be fixed with a few file removals and edits…

*Note 1* – I have not attempted this method, but have been told by 2 reliable testers that it works.

Instructions:

-Open Root Explorer
-Go to the System folder
-Go to the Bin folder
-Tap the button in the upper right corner to mount RW (This lets you edit files in there)
-Scroll down and find the file called hijack, long press and delete it.
-Scroll down to the file named logwrapper, longpress and delete it.
-Directly underneath that is a file named logwrapper.bin, long press and RENAME it to just logwrapper (so take off the .bin at the end)
-Tap the button in the upper right to mount as RO again
-Reboot into recovery and apply the update!

Have fun!  Instructions for installing Froyo here.
