1. Click on the link below and save it to an SD card
2. Put the SD card in phone
3. Remove battery
4. Replace battery
5. Hold Volume Down, Talk and End until “ Android system recovery” screen comes up
6. Scroll down to the second option “apply sdcard:update.zip”
7. Press enter
8. Find something else to do for about ten minutes while the phone fixes itself and restarts

FIX IS HERE

Once again your Sprint Source comes to save the day again...

You're welcome guys,
Korey

Thanks...

At our store here in Indy we were taking customers phones that did not yet have get the 2.2 update and was using the 2.2 update.zip to update people OTW.

You don't already have to 2.2 installed for the update.zip to work. You just need a stock 2.1 phone with stock recovery on it.
