I tried to apply the update as zip from sd card and I got the following error, which seems to have something to do with google books
apply_patch_check(''/system/app/BooksPhone.apk'',numbers and letters
E:Error in /sdcard/update.zip (status 7)
Installation aborted.

Any ideas? Maybe it is because I had integrate Books into ROM? Any solutions?
Thanks a lot.

I'm getting the same error. I thought maybe it was because I had deleted Google Books from my system apps but after restoring the BooksPhone.apk I still get it. Not sure what the problem is.

I was thinking if I flash the backup on 2.3.3 will that bring back the root access? or at least I can already use Gingerbreak then? ty

1. I download the 2.3.4 update from this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1061270, rename it update.zip and place it in the root of my SD

2. Then I download the su zip from this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=682828 and also place it in the root of my SD

3. Then I reboot into Clockwork and apply the update.zip

4. Once that's done I DO NOT reboot and apply the su zip

Is that it or am I missing something?
i have stock 2.3.4 unrooted recovery stock.
Which file should i use? Do i have to rename files?
thanks!

To do what? To root? This procedure is to, in this case, update to 2.3.4 from 2.3.3 without loosing root.

Now I have an additional question. I wasn't able to use the original update file from Google, presumably because I had deleted the Google Books app. I kept getting the above-mentioned error.

Just out of curiosity, how could I get Google Books back so the update would run? Just placing it in /system/app didn't seem to work.

Not that it really matters, I used the modified update file that danger-rat posted, but for the future I would like to know how I can avoid this error.
