Official 2.2 Froyo Untouched

You have to flash O2 1.6 first and then AT&T 1.6 using these instructions:

http://android.modaco.com/content/dell-str...ing-the-streak/

How do I flash after I tried to upgrade from 1.6 directly to 2.2 ?

It seems there's nothing I can do but just return the phone. Can any one please help me?

I have an ATT Dell Streak , version 1.6 and I think it's build 6601 . Where can I get the original files?

The recovery doesn't respond to Update.pkg

Solved the problem by returning the phone to Best Buy.

Don't try to upgrade directly to 2.2 if you have the ATT 1.6

You may want to try this http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=805112

or.. just wait for ATT to release the 2.2

the install of the official 2.2 (as documented in this topic)

some ppl have gone from a dj_steve based rom & flashed the .img files

others has regressed (or never left) 1.6/2.1 & were able to flash 2.2 via /pkg (correct?)

those that went 1.6 to 2.2 didn't have the camera FC

those that went dj_s 2.2 to official 2.2 did have camera issues

is there any similar relationship between the broswer redirects & the rom the phone was running when flashed to 2.2?

[in short, does everybody have the broswer redirects or only those who updated from a non-official rom]

Cheers ;)

PS

@supr3m3

Works well for me. Sooo much nicer then the Dell interface (horrid cluttered system bar at the top).

Camcorder crashes on 720p, but not a big worry as the rest seems nice so far..

Thanks! ;)

A post with my 1.4.6 to stock 2.2 issues. (solved)

a great post Radimus ;)

don't suppose doing all this resolved the server redirects issue when browsing on wifi?

Thanks

I tried to upgrade Swype to the latest version and now it just FC's all the time. I made a Titanium Backup of the Swype version that came with the ROM but for some reason it will not restore. Does anyone have, or know how to get, a working version of Swype back on to the Streak with this 2.2 build??

Thanks.

UPDATE:

While version 2.15.56.14870 gives me nothing but FC's I found a 2.10 that works great.

I was being funny, I was tryimg to help you.

But as you obviously know everything already you wont need my help when you get it wrong, and you're likely to get it wrong because you dont want to read the forums enough to understand how to do this..

here's my Build.prop in case anyone wants it and has rooted the build..

extract and copy to /system (backup the old one)

it helps speed things up a bit

if you install busybox, (from the market)

then the sysctl.conf goes in /etc/ and is called by adding

sysctl -p

to /etc/init.streak.post_boot.sh on a new line after the esac

if feeling adventurous change the 6000000 value to 3000000 in sysctl.conf

will this be ok to put on to stock 318 from using the qdl tool? I supplied the performance fix I read about but that's out do far.

Thanks

no problems with flashing and seems like 720p is working as well, I am just saying.

Lets just say this is 100% safe as long as you know how to use fastboot and cmd (terminal). If it worked for me, its safe. ;)

For some reason the link redirects me to:

Can you fix this?

Thanks

if you are trying to flash the stock ROM you should use the QDL tool as it is the easiest and faster method, HERE , there is also tutorials and other files that you might be interested in
