Been about 5 mins, nothing further, no indication it saw anything.

Press volume up + power button, which brings up the recovery menu. Then apply update.zip.

The assert error indicates there is something on the phone configuration it doesn't like. It is not because the download file failed. that succeeded and matched the correct checksum's. Confirmed this with Unrevoked on IRC.

Just in case someone else gets this.

looks like I will use the RUU update instead. Will do it from work since I only have Win7 here.

Intriguing
Alright so after playing round a bit I've had some interesting luck.

After downloading the file I renamed it to update.zip, placed it within the root of my sd card and proceeded to turn the phone off.

After entering Hboot ( Volume Down + Power ) I launched recovery.

At the recovery screen the phone with a red triangle, I did Volume up + Power to bring up the recovery options and chose Apply update : sd card

It took a few minutes to load, asked me to select reboot from menu. Loaded the 2.2 splash and I now have froyo.

My question is, Couldn't this be done from clockwork as well as there is an SD update from there as well?

Reason I ask is because it could potentially save a lot of time and effort on the peoples part of having to return to stock etc.... assuming they are running the correct version and baseband pre update. But then again, the update could perhaps check to ensure the stock recovery is in place before hand. Had I not just have updated I would try it myself.

Perhaps we could find a guinea pig to try updating via clockwork...
