HTC EVO 4G :: How To Manually Apply Froyo 2.2 - 3.26.651.3 - Update
Jul 30, 2010
Want to upgrade manually yourself? Download the Android 2.2 firmware for the Evo to your PC. Place the file in the top level directory of your SD Card. (Do not unzip this file) Rename the downloaded file. (If your Windows is configured to show extensions, then rename it "update.zip" if you do not have extensions visible then rename it "update" NOTE: If downloading the file from the above link, it's already been renamed for you) If you don't have it already, download ASTRO File Manager from the Android Market. Connect your EVO to your PC and set the connection type to "Disk Drive" Copy over the downloaded file to the root of your EVO directory structure. Power down your Evo Reboot into Recovery Mode by Holding down the Volume Down button as you power the phone back on. The Boot Loader will appear, A screen should appear showing your phones system searching for various files. Scroll down to recovery and press the Power button. (The Volume Up/Down buttons navigate the menu, and the Power Button selects the selection.) When you see the triangle with an exclamation point symbol, press the Power and Volume Up buttons at the same time. (and wait for 10-15 seconds), The recovery should eventually come up. Select Bootloader Scroll down to Recovery and select it The phone will reboot again, this time into Recovery. From the menu that appears, select Apply sdcard:update.zip. or "install from zip" (depending on your recovery image) When the screen displays �Install from sdcard complete select reboot system now and wait for the phone to power back up.
Wait a while.. the phone will reboot repeatedly and finally install the update with the new apps. (The installation can take up to 15-20 minutes)
My brother received the update this morning, but I never received, and neither did my friend. I am wondering, will this be fixed these days? or does this mean I have to apply manually? I am not a professional at that type of thing, I am not too familiar with smart phones, so I am worried if I apply it manually I would screw something up.
This was listed under the "Samsung Galaxy S" sub-forum but would it also apply to the Fascinate and other US variants of the phone as well?
If you read through that page there is a guy on there who is talking to someone at Clove Technology who is supposedly talking to someone from Samsung. What they are saying is that the fixes will be bundled with Froyo and hoping for an end of September update.
I followed the instructions posted on here yesterday to unroot my phone - worked fine. The superuser and and wifi tether are now gone. I went in this morning to try to manually install the froyo update from android and me, and when trying to run it, I get the following:
I'm rooting my Galaxy S for the first time. Looks like there are multiple ways to do it: (1) Download & apply update.zip (2) Use z4root app from market (3) Use SuperOneClick for PC (4) Use OneClickLagFix app
I just rooted (minutes ago) and I would like to put a hero rom on my rogers htc magic(32a). I was going to use fatal1ty's rom from here. Rogers Rom Repository (Check Here for the Latest Rogers/32A Ports) - xda-developers is this the best one to use? I'm a little confused about how to do it now. do I need a new radio or anything? In his instructions it says "Rename it in update.zip copy to sd reboot (pressing home+power) wipe apply update"
shouldn't I go into fastboot and then type "fastboot boot recovery.img" just like I did when I was rooting and then click "apply sdcard: update.zip"? why would this be different? Pressing home+power didn't even seem to do anything different. Perhaps I didn't hold home long enough..
1. I've been reading posts for an hour now and can't find a direct answer. Or maybe there is one and I'm missing it due to my lack of rooting knowledge. I am using velocity .2 and clockwork mod recovery. I am getting a system update notification, Update now/Later, etc. What do I do? I am reading some of the posts and some seem like they pertain to it. Since Im rooter and on velocity.
2. Can I update? Do I have to go to the stock LG rom in rom manager and apply that first?
Do I have to do a factory reset? Am I supposed to lose root. Some help on how to apply the update with velocity .2 and clockword mod recovery tutorial to apply the update without bricking phone please.
Firstly, just wanted to say everyone on this forum has been awesome! You all do great work and are extremely helpful!
Ok from Velocity 0.2 with Clockworkmod and V9 SW version I flashed the stock V6 Rom, then flashed stock recovery. got ota updates to V8 and then ZVB without any errors. SW Version on phone read VS740ZVB. I then rerouted, applied Clockworkmod recovery and installed Velocity 0.2 and then the GNMTurbo4 kernel. SW Version on phone reads VS740ZVB. Then another OTA update showed up. It claimed to be 24.9MB just like the ZVB update. Of course it would not install because I was using custom recovery.
My question is, what is this update? Is it the ZVB update coming through again? Did my ZVB update not apply correctly or is it not recognized by Verizon since I'm using custom recovery and rom? Is there a new update that I'm missing out on, and if so, what is it, and do I need to apply it?
Lots of questions, I know.Just wondering what exactly is going on and do I need to do anything about it? Is there any way to pull info on this update from the downloaded file, and if so, where can I find the file and how do I get info from it?
I have a samsung galaxy young s6312, stock android 4.1.2 jellybean, rooted, stock recovery. Now I have been wanting to install cwm recovery on my device since a long long time, and rom manager isn't compatible with my device. I finally found a cwm.zip file for my device somewhere. The site told me to flash it via stock recovery, by the apply update from sdcard option. So I went into recovery, and when I click on apply update from sdcard option, I see only ../ I don't see a list of files on my external sd card. I tried formatting my sdcard, tried reinserting it, nothing worked.
Does anyone know a way to manually update your phone's PRL (not *228)? My PRL was updated and now I am not getting 3G where I live. I tried ##PROGRAM, but there was no place to change the PRL. Dialing ##778# does not work either for me.
I was one of the people who got the OTA and when I clicked "install" it just sat there. So OTA did not install for me. However, I downloaded the .zip from xda developers, and I want to flash it manually.
I don't have my Evo yet so I can't and won't say this works 100% but from what I've read and what people have told me this seems to fix the problem so you won't have to do the GSM/CDMA trick anymore. Many have told me that you have to manually update this by going into -> Menu > Settings > System Updates > Update PRL. Let me know how it works out for you.
I am trying to update an AppWidget manually when a user setting changes on the device.I can tell that my AppWidget onUpdate method is being called as a result since I log some debug strings to logcat in the code. However the AppWidget itself doesn't change on the screen.Here comes the interesting part: if I rotate my device and force a refresh of the home screen (from PORTRAIT to LANDSCAPE or vice-versa) then finally my AppWidget gets updated. However rotating the device does not trigger the onUpdate method to be called, so the AppWidget must be using the RemoteViews provided in the earlier update. Can somebody explain me what to do to force the home screen redraw of my AppWidget when it processes an update?
My custom AppWidgetProvider has onUpdate method where i have logic to update RemoteViews
It is not periodically updated by system, but rather, i'd like to trigger onUpdate if something happens (in one of my app Activities). both custom AppWidgetProvider and Activities i'd like to trigger update from run with the same UID
I tried some AppWidgetManager's methods, but no luck, finally i ended with really weird solution: i'm sending broadcast with action ACTION_APPWIDGET_UPDATE and extras EXTRA_APPWIDGET_IDS which i got from AppWidgetManager
Rather than waiting for an OTA update, it looks like you can manually update the phone through your PC.....but the catch is it factory resets your phone once it's done: Manual Update Instructions from your PC: DROID Eris by HTC
I've only had my Android phone for about 2 weeks now but being a bit of a geek love to tweak things to make them "cooler"...Updating - can I manually update from 2.2.1 to a newer version?Widget - There was a widget already installed with 5 icons, WiFi-Bluetooth-?-?-brightness Not sure what the two are but I suspect perhaps GPS (looks like it might be a sat dish) and Account Sync (circle with 2 curved arrows)Sometimes the phone boots in Safe Mode and after a few reboots finally boots into "normal" mode. Through trial and error I can get to a "recovery" prompt but that has "wipe" functions and I don't want to wipe my data. Is there an other option or just keep rebooting until it works? I read that you can hold the volume + button, but that brings up a factory testing menu on this clone phone.
The phone is a HTC clone from China (Hero 300 listed on box). I have a 2GB card I'm using with it. It appears to be "rooted" because there is the superuser icon.
I don't want to beat a dead horse, but I have searched around and i have not found a good explanation as to why those with the 2.1v3 leak cannot manually install the official OTA file that was posted here.
Anyone have an explanation for this? I read that it has something to do with a different HBOOT, but I'm not really understanding it. Do you think we will every be able to get the OTA so that we can go root? I quickly jumped to the 2.1v3 leak without fully understanding the benefits of root and now, after more research, I really want to go root.
However... a few weeks ago I was having issues with the Market (downloads were freezing in the "installing" stage) so I "Uninstalled updates" in the Market application under "manage applications". When this happened, it reverted my market back to how it was pre the newer market update.
My question: does anyone know how I can manually update to the new market again? The phone did it automatically before, so now I don't know how to get the "new" market.
