================================================== ===================

I am simply re-posting this information from HERE (http://www.mydroidworld.com/forums/droid-x-discussion/7047-droidx-gingerbread-2-3-3-4-5-588-install-patch-root.html#post68035) over at MyDroidWorld.com to help alleviate multiple help threads :D I have simply combined the information from that thread into one easy to follow guide here. Enjoy :D It is highly recommended that you read through this entire OP first before yo continue just so you know what to expect in the next step.


Before you continue, make sure you have a FULL BATTERY 100%! FAIR WARNING!

This is the most recently leaked Gingerbread build for the Droid X phones.
Droid X 2.3.3. (4.5.588)

You must follow the directions exactly to the letter, if you do not I can not guarantee the results. Please do not post questions here if you have not read the directions below. Before beginning ensure that you understand the directions that you have read.

Good, now that you have read the above statement, you are ready to proceed.

-Your phone must be in the following condition before you can use the patched updater:

1.) Your phone MUST be running the 2.3.340 official Froyo Firmware, use the full SBF methods to get back to official Froyo Firmware, do not cheap out and use an update.zip format!

See these threads for SBF methods:
http://www.droidxforums.com/forum/droid-x-hacks/23638-linux-solution-your-windows-rsd-lite-problems.html
http://www.droidxforums.com/forum/droid-x-rs-guides/22394-sbf-detailed-guide-success-windows-7-a.html

2.) Your phone has been rooted

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

-Have you gotten your phone in the proper state to upgrade to the newest leaked Gingerbread? If yes continue below, if no, go back above and read!
1.) Now download the following files and place on your SD Card:

Once files are downloaded, place the files on root of your SD card. Make sure you MD5's match! Please, I beg you! Make sure the MD5's match before you continue!
2.) Restart the phone in Droid 2 Bootstrap Recovery!

3.) Wipe data (Factory Reset)/cache/dalvik/battery stats (last two under advanced)

4.) Install all three zips in numerical order! This is very important! DO NOT LEAVE RECOVERY UNTIL ALL THREE ZIPS ARE INSTALLED! (Also, DO NOT install anything else, no patches or anything! Just the three files above.)

5.) After the third zip is finished, go back to the menu and once again wipe data (Factory Reset)/cache/dalvik/battery stats.

6.) Reboot the phone into stock recovery! (Holding down the home button).

7.) Wipe data (Factory Reset)/cache a few times, more than once(yea, again, I know, but it works!)

8.) Reboot!

9.) Once the phone is rebooted and you get Droid 2 Bootstrap installed again, go HERE (http://www.mydroidworld.com/forums/droid-x-discussion/7047-droidx-gingerbread-2-3-3-4-5-588-install-patch-root.html#post68050) and install the "NoBloat.2.3.588_rooted_deodexed.zip" in Droid 2 Bootstrap.

10.) After you have installed the "NoBloat.2.3.588_rooted_deodexed.zip" from the previous step, you are now free to install any one of three deodexed patches from HERE (http://www.mydroidworld.com/forums/droid-x-discussion/7047-droidx-gingerbread-2-3-3-4-5-588-install-patch-root.html#post68049).

-Side note about the patches, some users have reported some FC issues with the CRT & Battery mod patch.
Enjoy the latest leaked Gingerbread with hopefully as little hiccups as possible! ;)

3.) Wipe data/cache/dalvik/battery stats (last two under advanced)



OK, this may be a dumb question, but I'm just clarifying, just making sure.

When you say in #3, "Wipe data/cache/dalvik/battery stats", do you mean to choose the option of "Wipe data/FACTORY RESET"?

thanks for the help and clarification.

Yes, he just put together 3 steps there. Wipe data/factory reset which also wipes cache as well, then goto advanced, and wipe the dalvik cache, then while still in advanced wipe the battery stats as well...

Here is a free tiny utility that will do it in Windows. Just copy/paste one of the md5sum from Mac's list to the top box, then browse to where the downloaded file is from the bottom box, hit open, and in about 5 seconds you will either have a green light for a match, or red light...

Did you flash both at the same time? Flash debloat first, REBOOT, then flash the patch. Now I have heard that that crt and battery patch gives people issues, I am on crt only and no issues what so ever.

On the go, expect short answers :)

I have recently replaced my Droid X due to a faulty antenna. I am rooted and completely stock. I can reboot into recovery with Droid X Bootstrapper but Droid 2 Bootstrapper won't boot into recovery. I really wanna try the new GB leak with patch but don't want to use Droid X Bootstrapper because the instructions say not to. Any ideas?

I guess the Droid 2 version is more up to date? IDK. Try removing bootstrap completely, by deleting the hijack files, and then reinstall it with the Droid 2 version.

Is the no bloat file necessary? What is its purpose, just removing Blur/bloat? Also are the patches referenced after that necessary? What do they do exactly? I have the CRT zip from the earlier rooted GB, can I just use that for the CRT animation and forget the zips from the instructions?

Mac,

Thanks to you and Jolly, my 3rd battery charge on my Gingerbread'ed DX has gotten me 29 hours with decent usage... That's up from my initial GB go-around which was about 18 hours and less usage..

Great posts on both your parts..... I was ready to give up on GB, and I'm glad I gave it one last go around, with following your posts.......

Outstanding work guys....

It just removes very little bloat that is not needed at all, some still remains but that's generally stuff that is user taste specific. I would flash it cause it can't hurt, and I get great battery life on it. And I would re-download the CRT patch because he has made some changes to the files since than. The patches are necessariy if you plan applying themes and doing some minimal framework mods, those patches deodex the build and deodex is required to theme and make visual changes.

I loved Liberty once, but it was way too unstable for me and I got sick of the reboots back on Froyo. Kind of hesitant to try the Gingerbread version especially since Gingerblur has been so great for me this past month.

Flash every file in the order in the guide, step by step, and you will be deodexed on the latest Gingerbread build for the DX, it isn't considered "OTA" yet cause we haven't had a mass OTA yet.

The no bloat gets rid of a lot of the unneeded bloat services, most of which you won't notice are gone unless you compared the app/services list from before and after. What "bloat" are you wanting to get rid of? Just go into Root Explorer /system/app and rename the apps you don't want appearing in your app drawer. Beware though, if you rename myverizon.apk you will end up with constant FC's and will have to battery pull and wipe data/cache.

Same problem here. Bloat gets added back by the CRT/Battery Patch. Also, if you wipe data before or after installing the CRT/Battery Patch, it will bootloop. SBF required to fix. For now I'm just going to stick with NoBloat.

I compared Deodexed_CRT_BattMod.zip and NoBloat.2.3.588_rooted_deodexed.zip
The CRT/Bat mod includes way more than just those twochanges. It's a full system image. Does anyone know of a way to apply just those two changes without affecting the rest of the system?

You can always try flashing the modded patch first, then the no bloat. Be prepared to SBF lol. Not sure what will happen. If you do give it a try, let us know how it goes.

I'm pretty happy with NoBloat. I haven't tested, but it seems like NoBloat would overwrite CRT_BattMod. Both installs seem to format /system. I'll wait for a .591, Pre-rooted, NoBloat, CRT, 10% BattMod build before flashing again.

Thanks for the guide macpro88. Nice to have all the info in one place.

i had the first gb leak coming from froyo lib 1.5, then flashed p3droid's deodexed .588 w/battery & crt (crt was previously flashed) directly over that when it came out. never applied any other updates, didn't try the nobloat as i instead went to apex alpha2. eh, maybe just got lucky who knows

at this step

5.) After the third zip is finished, go back to the menu and once again wipe data (Factory Reset)/cache/dalvik/battery stats.

6.) Reboot the phone into stock recovery! (Holding down the home button).

7.) Wipe data (Factory Reset)/cache a few times, more than once(yea, again, I know, but it works!)

When you go back to the menu in bootstrap and it says reboot now, do you just battery pull then boot into stock recovery to perform some more factory resets? Or do you reboot system now and then shut off once booted into GB then go to stock recovery?

also IM confused, i always seen that you should have a rom to flash if you wipe data, cache, dalvik, bat stats, in bootstrap. And in this your saying do it again after you flash GB? So we flash and then wipe in bootstrap again? Is that needed since you just did before the flashes? Are the factory resets in stock recovery after flashing not enough?
Just wondering, teach me cause im a bit confused at that.

I got all the way to step 9 and having troubles. I installed Bootstrap Recovery again and when it reboots it goes to Bootloader. So I pull the battery and wait and try again and the same thing. Does battery level make a difference? All I need to do is flash the "NoBloat.2.3.588_rooted_deodexed.zip" and one of the patches so I can move on and install GB Liberty

EDIT #1: This is what is does when I try booting into recovery....It shows the "Motorola" logo than black screen. No options at all

EDIT #2: I have a strong feeling I'm going to have to start all over :/. Everything went well just need to get into bootstrap recovery now.

When it boots to bootloader, what does it say? If no error message, unplug from your computer....

Always flash with a full battery! ALWAYS! No matter what it is, flash with a full battery as stated in the OP!

If you get error message when the phone boots to bootloader and you are not connected to you computer than you need to SBF, guides are in my sig....

Did you try boot stock recovery and wiping data/cache?

05-11-2011, 10:30 AM
I'm letting my phone charge now (50%). When it was in bootloader no errors. Just everytime when I goto Bootstrap Recovery and push the top button first than the bottom one it will reboot and nothing. I'll try it right now and post an update in a sec

EDIT #1: I pressed Bootstrap Recovery it says success. Now I pushed Reboot Recovery....Motorola logo shows...and now black screen

to get to .588, i have to download the three steps and use D2 bootstrap to get into GB

then to download libert v.05, can i just use the toolbox, or do i have to use bootstrap, and if bootstrap, would that be D2, or DX? really, i'm getting good at getting into bootloader, and then sbf'ing back to .340, but would really like to not have to go through a couple of rounds to get to v.05 (with kernal)! Thanks all for the assistance.

This is interesting. I am going from froyo to .588. I wiped, flashed the 3 files in succession, wiped and tried to reboot into stock recovery. Now it shows the red m then it goes blank, then red m, then blank. It will keep doing this seemingly forever. Any suggestions?

Edit: Interestingly enough, I tried to boot the phone and it started so I pulled the battery, and booted into stock recovery without incident.

Sorry for the false alarm.

Follow the instructions given by Liberty. If you need to be on Gingerbread first, flash the three step program, then follow the Liberty instructions.

So I have the 3 files. I drop them into the root folder on my sd card. However, when I reboot into recovery, they dont show up under choose .zip from sd card.

Am I missing something? I have only flashed leaks by doing a update.zip method.

Thanks

You can't install them via stock recovery, you need to use Droid X bootstrapper and clockwork recovery

I am, I am going by the directions. I boot into Droid2 bootoader, but the files do not show up. I even unziped them, they showed that way but I didnt know how to flash them that way.

EDIT:: Could someone give me a more detailed explanation about dropping the files (do I rename anything), to what exactly do I do in the recovery?

You do not need to unzip the files. Just place the .zip files in the root of your SD card (don't put them in any folders or anything). Then when you boot in to bootstrap recovery, at the main menu, choose install zip from SD card then on the next menu choose "choose file" and then you can navigate to the files and select them.

Thanks for your quick reply. However, I am doing it just like that, but the files are not showing up. I see all the file folders, but no .zips.

I will keep tinkering.

EDIT:: SO STUPID!!! I didnt SCROLL. DOWN!!! AHHHHH

Haha, thanks guys, It is now working.

Are you scrolling down to the bottom? And are they .zip files?

I just did this install last night, was on leaked .588 awhile back and sbf to take this highly anticipated OTA and was tired of waiting! But as the great Mike(op) stated in post, people have experienced issues with that batt mod, so I used crt only and not a single issue...lucky me my phone has never had failed installs, bootloops, fcs....maybe Cuz I read ahead?

OK, so now i am starting second SBF tonight; installed .588, but when i do the de-bloat and then the crt (as well as crt and battery) i get nothing but force closures.

do i NEED to do the debloat, and if i do, do i need to do the second part as well? am getting tired of having to sbf back to .340

@goldsmitht
No, you don't need to do NoBloat first. In fact, I think it causes problems. Go directly to the Deodexed CRT/Battmod file of your choice.

Techie1: that was the problem as well! as soon as i flashed the CRT and BATTMOD, i had to pull the battery because of all the FC's. couldn't even turn off using powerbutton.

My question is this: IF my endstate is .595, can i flash .588 using the 3step method (flash each of the 3 files) and then flash .591 / .595 without leaving clockwork? Or do i need to let .588 completely install and set up before flashing .591 / .595 (I have the TBH apk, and have downloaded .595)

AND do i need to go in succession .588 > .591 > .595 or can i go straight from .588 to .595? i'm getting good at SBF'ing, but really hate having to go through that and want to get it right this time.
thanks for the assistance!

Here is the info you need:

Just know that info in the OP has not been updated. You cannot go from GB .595 to the OTA, you MUST SBF back to stock Froyo to take it...

not wanting to take the OTA at this point, and to clear my mind on this, this method takes the place of the three files? and the deodexed, rooted form gets me started so then i can flash the next step then .595, correct? Thanks!!!

You must be on .588 first before you flash .595.

Tried to install the first part of the zip files but got an "abort" error. Something about apk in side the zip couldn't be read (or something like that). I'm redownloading the first part again and will edit with results. Ended up (for now) putting rubix 2.0.1 back on the phone.


Edit: Same thing. Any feedback? I cleared data/cache/battery/etc and then went to install the zip.


Edit edit:
Here is a free tiny utility that will do it in Windows. Just copy/paste one of the md5sum from Mac's list to the top box, then browse to where the downloaded file is from the bottom box, hit open, and in about 5 seconds you will either have a green light for a match, or red light...

Mac feel free to add this to the OP if you like:

MD5 Checker - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com (http://download.cnet.com/MD5-Checker/3000-2092_4-10410639.html)
I d/l'd this program to check the md5's and they all matched. I thought that might have been the problem. Any suggestions? I'm on Rubix 2.0.1, went to clockwork, wiped data/etc, then tried to install the zips. Do I need to SBF from Rubix? I was told previously I didn't need to.




One more edit:Just tried again for kicks and giggles. Same thing. Here is the exact script/text I'm getting:

assert failed: apply_patch_check("/system/app/AccountAndSyncSettings.apk", "(long stream of numbers and letters)", "(another number and letter code)", "(one more")
E: Error in /sdcard/Blur_Version.23588.p1.zip (status 7)

Nope, you need to SBF back to 2.3.340 STOCK for the GB updates to work successfully. And if you were the one that asked about just installing .588 and then installing .595 without ever leaving CW, definitely not! You need to reboot and reinstall Dx2 Bootstrap and then install the .595 update. It doesn't take much longer and should keep you from having a boatload of problems.

Very understandable!! I pretty much panic every time! Just make sure you follow the directions in the OP, especially the parts concerning the data wipes or you will not be a happy camper.

Never! lol just kidding, go right ahead. grand idea anyways, less confusion for people, should also do that for some other threads too that are no longer needed related to GB.
