1. Restore to stock.
2. Place update.zip in root of sdcard
3. Boot into recovery
4. Apply update.zip

Please upload a Nandroid backup when you're done so that those of us who applied the leaked FroYo SBF can upgrade...

Thank you!

How would I go about uploading the nandroid? And do you mean factory reset or just load my first (stock) nandroid?

You have to load the stock Nandroid because the update looks for the T-Mobile bloatware and specific system strings before allowing the update.

To upload the Nandroid after you've updated, just zip up everything and upload them to any file sharing host like: Multiupload.com

Thanks!

I have a nandroid with all the stock bloat. first thing i did when i rooted it. So that back up should work?

Do i have to unzip the update? Or leave it zipped in the go.apk.rev folder in backups

Was the zip file named update.zip?

There's no reason why it shouldn't work. Unless you're not using a T-Mobile USA Defy...
