WOW! That's a REALLY shopworn topic. We've all wondered why Entourage focused on academia! The whole thing is still sad to this day. In fact, I had more people ask me what my PE was today at a board meeting where I took notes on it.

Of course, at the original price, most people would say (as too many said) "uh, never mind."

Question New PE Owner Desperately Seeking Help!!

I just got a Pocket Edge, and want to upgrade to 2.2. Mine still has the Dingo on it. I tried to follow one of the posts from earlier, but could not get the file to download. I know the Entourage store is closed, but I saw a post from someone dated yesterday saying they were successful in upgrading. Can anyone tell me how to get the proper 2.2 file? (Sorry, not too knowledgeable about computers, hope this makes some sense to someone!).

Hi tree!

Have you had any luck yet? It can be scary if you aren't overly familiar with computers or Android!

Here are the official instructions: https://www.entourageedge.com/suppor...barticleid=265, although you've probably seen that already!

Are you having trouble downloading the update file to your computer, or installing the update on your Pocket eDGe?

If the trouble is installing, keep trying. Try a different USB stick, or even a microSD card if you have one. Try renaming the file "update" and letting it add the ".zip" itself.

I hope you get it!


P.S. Unless there's something you want in the Ermine (Android 2.2) update, you don't have to update. You can get to know your PE and try the update later if you want.

Thoughts:
(1) make sure you have the correct file the PE not EE
(2) different USB,
(3) make sure the file is in the root i.e. not in a folder,
(4) a smaller GB size USB stick

other then that...?

this is very frustrating. Not able to do the update at all.
usb - fat reformatted
update file - named update.zip no luck, renamed to just update no luck.
PE boots up as normal after i let go of menu and the rotate keys (i have tried up to 25 secs).
i am not able to register anymore, the tube app will not work on any videos, i am totally lost ast to what to do.

Chokra, rooting it is not the same as updating and it does not facilitate the update at all.

What operating system are you using on your computer to rename the update.zip-pe-ermine-0.9 file. If it is windows and you are sure you are not ending up with update.zip.zip instead of update.zip on your USB stick, then you could have a bad download. Try downloading again. You can also go into folder options --> view and unmark 'hide extensions for known file types', this will show the extensions of the files in either 'my computer' or 'windows explorer' so you will know that you have only one .zip and not two on the USB stick.

Also make sure you use a standard USB stick, not one with U3 or anything else on it.
