seriously need help here. i've followed every sites advise, read every last post, and tried every thing imagineable to get 2.2 and nothing works. My phone is locked to a 2.1 update voles something I can't flash spr, I can't downgrade to 2.01. It's not letting me do anything. nothing works. i can't even get rsd lite to flash anything to my phone everything fails.
ok, what is the exact condition of your device at the moment?
Do you have root access?
Do you have a custom bootloader? Which one?
altered baseband? These last two aren't relevant, i'm just gauging your android understanding.
Whatever state you're in currently, are you ok with losing all of your data?
yes i would be ok with losing all my data. the phone right now is back to a 2.1 update1 build number voles-userdebug 2.1 update1 ese53 25914 test-keys.....??? the download link stated it was an official build. I've tried factory reset, tried to re-root by installing spr recovery, and tried to flash a VZW build of 2.1, and also tried to downgrade to 2.0.1. For some reason RSD lite fails to flash with everything I try
just try rebooting into recovery.
Power on the device but hold X, then press volume UP and camera when the phone no longer has the (M) logo. does that bring up the SPRecovery 0.99.3b? if not what recovery does appear?
Alternatively, you could download the regular 2.2 w/out root and put it on the root of your sdcard. Files here -> http://mydroiddoes.info/froyo/update.zip reboot like you just did into the Stock Recovery, (HOLD BOTH)POWER+X followed by (HOLD)Volume Up + Camera, then select install from SDCARD update.zip
