If you have modified or removed ANYTHING (that includes City ID) from the original ROM, the update is going to fail. A substantial portion is being applied via patch diffs, so the update script is validating the files are as it expects before letting you proceed.

You need to be on build 1.22.605.2, not having touched anything in /system, for this to work.

So what you're telling me is you:

Renamed the file you downloaded "Update"

Placed the file on the root of your SD card

Completely turned the power off

Held Volume Down + Power to enter Hboot

Volume down twice to recovery and hit the power button

Confirm seeing an red triangle to ensure you are running stock recovery

While at that image hit Volume UP + power for diag options

Chose “Apply sdcard:update.zip”

schwartzman93 : Do you have a messenger service that I can contact you at to review some things?

I am already noticing some issues after updating via this method

1: Upon returning to Hboot to confim S-off was still off, I was immediatly prompted for gift delivery to which I ended up back to the recovery image.

2: My weather is no longer updating. It fails every time.

3: Market will no longer load or download / install applications

4: I have lost the ability to unlock via menu button and now must swipe down
