    I would also like to make sure that clockwork should block this as well...
    Someone else will have to chime in on this. I have no idea.

    My guess.....guess that is...... that it is SPRecovery that actually blocks the install of the OTA. Is Clockwork the same? dunno

    I can always flash back to SPRecovery through ROM Manager, let it DL and block, flash back to clockwork and back everything up. I'm pretty sure this will work.
    Android keeps going, and going.....

    From Koush:

    Only test signed images work if using the autoupdate mechanism. The official OTAs use release/privately signed zips. So yes, it will fail to install.

    What i did was not really the right thing. I unrooted and took the update and had to reroot. Pain in the A$$.

    What i should have done is just accept the update and let it download and let SPRecovery block it. Thats all that i really had to do. Wish i had known that before hand. That is why i started this thread.

    If it is the same as the last update this is all you have to do.

    1. accept it and let it download
    2. SPRecovery will then block it
    3. No more prompts to download the OTA
    4. VOILA!!!

    (if any of this information is incorrect please feel free to edit in your own post)

    Thank you for spelling it out, because I had been told so many different stories I didn't know what to believe

    I don't want to lose root because for all the good apps you have to be rooted it seems.

    Yes, you should expect it. Just follow the instructions in the OP
    I thought SPRecovery/BB modified the otacerts.zip so they wouldnt even get OTA updates.. i never got one for 2.1

    If you're running a custom ROM it should block the update.

    Thats what i thought.. thank you.

    I think Huskur was just still upset from when my hokie beat his team

    but i guess we shall see how the OTA goes for those who do get it.. i surely will be jumping to a FRG01b ROM shortly

    Go ahead and get mad, but I have a question

    Alright, I know you're sick of seeing this question, but I'm having a hard time finding what I need. This is due to everyone on here being an "expert" and contradicting each other all the time.

    I want to keep my 2.1 OS and root my Eris.

    From what I've gathered on here, any 2.2 rom is too much for the Eris (although some disagree...one of these contradictions between experts I was referring to). Because of this, I'd like to keep my OS.

    I've seen threads on this site, and others, about flashing 2.1 with root access (this was posted back before 2.1 was officially released). But I've also gathered that you can't upgrade to an OS that you already have (although some disagree...another contradiction).

    So I've found several guides on how to root it w/o modifying the current OS (including the stickies), but it seems that some of the "experts" on here really enjoy talking in "tech speak" that only they can understand. (I work in the IT field, and am competent with computers, just not as much with cell phones).



    To recap:
    1. I just want to root my phone without changing from the 2.1 OS.
    2. From what I've gathered, you can just download a zip file on your computer, mount your phone, drag the file over to the phone's SD card, and run the new file in bootloader mode.
    Can anyone briefly help without just referring me back to the forum, and without getting frustrated. And is the info I've gathered from here accurate?
