I am running 2.2.2. I have done the Gingerbreak thing and I have done the Bootstrap thing and they have both worked ( I know this because I have the Superuser icon and have gone into recovery for various things.) I downloaded the 2.3.3 pre-rooted and went into recovery to flash it and I keep getting "installation aborted" and some kind of error message with the number 7? This sound familiar to anyone and does anyone know what I need to do to get the pre-rooted GB on my phone? Thanks for any input!

Using d2 bootstrap, or dx with USB debugging off? Checked md5s?

We've seen that a few times, but I can't recall the exact reason.

The regular pre root update requires an UN modified system (all bloat intact) either restore bloat or use TBH AIO installer which doesn't require bloat.

I haven't touched bloat. All I have done is root and bootstrap...

I am using the DX2 bootstrap. What is md5s?

I keep forgetting to look to see if it is an x2 thread.

I can't explain what an md5 checksum is, but it is a string of letters and numbers that you can match yours against. To get yours you can use something like http://www.winmd5.com/. Select your downloaded zip and generate an md5 checksum. Then compare it to the one published with the zip at the download site. MyDroidWorld should have one readily available.

It's a way to verify that your download was complete. If the numbers you have match the numbers in the OP of wherever you downloaded from, it's a good download. Any variation in the numbers/letters then it's a bad download. If you download to your phone, use Astro file manager, you can use it to view the md5 sum. If on a computer, refer to Fez's post.

What they said^^^^^^^^^^

MD5 checksum is basically a code that verifies that the file downloaded correctly and is intact. Always verify your downloads. A bad download can cause all kinds of problems. Ask me how I know............
