What is up with the forum today? My posts are all jumbled and sometimes there and other times not.
Sorry if they make no sense.
Well, my Desire has decided it does not like the OTA Froyo update. The phone downloads the update, I select install, it reboots and starts the update process with only a green icon and progress bar showing. About 1/3rd of the way through I get a RED Triangle with an exclamation point in the middle and the phone freezes requiring a battery pull to restart the phone, which isn't upgraded.
So far I have done the following, all with the same result:
1. Done a factory reset and then tried update.
2. After restoration of apps and data w/ greater than 50MB free, installed a different, blank, freshly formatted SD card.
One thing to point out, that I think might be happening - I have installed a new (HTC) digitizer, that I broke on the 4th day I had the Desire. I think this might be the issue if the update is performing some type of hardware check and the digitizer doesn't conform to its requirements.
At this point I am about ready to just root to upgrade, a process I was hoping to avoid because I just don't have time to determine what ROM, how to root, etc.
whats up with the forum got a email saying someone just posted but all I see is msmith's post from 1:41. weird.

At approximately 1/3rd the way through a RED Triangle with a red exclamation point appears and the phone freezes, requiring a battery pull.
So far I have tried the following with the same results:
1. Remove several applications to free up memory
2. Factory Reset (after backup of apps and data)
3. Restored from backup with >50MB free I tried a new, freshly formatted, empty SD card.
I am just about to give up and root to get Froyo, but I really do not want to because I do not have the time to determine (A) How to root & flash and (B) what would be the best ROM to use. I would be happy with just the factory load if I could get it to work.
I think the problem might be that I replaced the digitizer after I broke the original. I have a feeling that there might be some sort of hardware verification that the phone is failing, but I there is no error code being displayed, just the phone freezing with ! in a red triangle.
Any Ideas? Any way to try a manual upgrade instead of OTA?

Hey, the screen on my Showcase cracked (just the glass, it still displays fine). Knocked it off my bed. Any idea where to get it fixed or how much it would cost? Also, is it a repair that I could do myself? I'm fairly proficient with that sort of thing. How much would I save to do it myself, and where would I get the parts?

Sorry about the double post, but there must have been some sort of gremlin in the system.
