Re: Need some Help with phone updates
(My first post) I'm new to the whole rooting experience as well, so take my comments for what they're worth:
I just rooted my phone a couple of days ago (I'm still not really sure why, except perhaps I was hoping to find a way to go back to the old Market - I really dislike the new one) - and after a successful root, I was just going through all of the menus just looking to see what, if anything, had changed. I happened to be in the Settings->Software update menu and chose Check new not expecting anything to happen. It told me there was an update so I figured 'what the heck - the worst that can happen is that it'll nuke the whole thing and I'll just start over' so I let it download the update and proceed through the reboot, etc. After it rebooted, it showed a little yellow progress bar with a picture of a open box right above it, and before it got to 1/3 complete it showed a triangle symbol with an exclamation point and that was it - it just stopped. So I shut the phone off and restarted it, and it seemed normal for about 30 seconds, and then it said 'Powering down' and it restarted and went through that same scenario. I had followed the root instructions and made a backup immediately after the root completed successfully, so I ended up using Clockwork Recovery to restore that image, and since then I've been careful to stay away from the update (I've also been careful to be sure I remove any PG05IMG.ZIP file after I use it - I hadn't done that after updating the radio or something, and whenever I tried to boot into the HBOOT menus it would automatically start the process to load that .zip - I was lucky enough to be able to connect my phone to my laptop and remove that file before the phone started its 'powering down' behavior).
