Unhappy [Q] Phone won't update

I've been wanting to root my phone but I'm having some problems. I tried following the guide here

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1219246

But it didn't work seeing as how my DInc2 is still in froyo 2.2.1, and revolutionary only works now with 2.3.3.

So now the problem is updating. Apparently Verizon thinks I have a defective unit, because when I got to the software update in the settings and hit check new, it says service unavailable (my service is just fine). It's been doing this since I got the phone, and I got it about right after it was released. Verizon tech support had no solution to this problem at all.

I've researched online and can't find any solution, and tried resetting my phone and that didn't help either. Anyone have any ideas or a link to a thread I didn't see? I just want to root my phone, whether I install gingerbread first or find a way to root it in 2.2.1 I don't really care. I found a link to revolutionary that worked on froyo but that was on megaupload so that's gone now. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You should be able to download a stock 2.3.3 ROM and flash it.

This has directions and a link for 2.3.4 http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1599767

The important thing is the rom file must be named PG32IMG.zip and on the root of your sd card. To boot into the boot loader, turn the phone off, turn it on holding the volume down and power buttons down until the bootloader menu comes up. You may need to pull the battery out when the phone is off to get it to boot to the boot loader. I've had to on my phone.
You shold be able to find a 2.3.3 rom on your own.

DONATE TO ME
You could put this file on your sdcard (not in a folder)
Then boot to bootloader by powering off, then hold volume down+power
Once it asks if you want to do then update select yes and dont interupt it.

MAKE SURE ITS NAMED: PG32IMG.zip

Heres the link below.

I could be wrong, but I believe that is the 2.3.4 rom.
