Default [Q] Update from FRG83D to Gingerbread

Hi,

I just wanted to update manually to Gingerbread.
But I am truly confused with all the version jibber jabber...

My Android version is 2.2.1, Build Number FRG83D and Kernel is 2.6.32.9-g6624e39 htc-kernel@and18-2 #1.
My phone is from german Vodafone Company. Maybe it is because of the language? But I do not care about it, use only English anyhow.

Can I update?
Obviously I can not with the just released file, cause I get a "cannot verify".

Or do I have to wait for another file and why?

Thanks!

You're not even on the latest version of Froyo, of course you won't be able to use the Gingerbread update.

it seems to me that you are not on the stock android ROM, but you are on a special vodaphone version of the ROM. if this is true, i highly suggest that you get rid of that ROM. that means you should root your phone, gain superuser acces, and install ROM manager.

ROM manager will now let you easily flash a variety of ROMs, just like an official OTA update, and including the stock ROM. so from ROM manager you could switch to stock if you wish, which would let you upgrade to gingerbread. or you can switch to cyanogen, or any other ROM you see in the list.

by far its the best thing to do.

Okay this are the steps I figured so far, if I follow them will I be able to update to Gingerbread?
Any step I forgot?

- Root with this method http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=959672 (yeah I'm on ubuntu)
- then I "download the FRG83 system image from http://developer.htc.com and use fastboot to flash over the system and boot images"
- then I run the update the Gingerbread update

That is what I had to do to get mine working...
