    BEFORE! 2.2 official rollout. What to do? (root users)

    I think this thread is necessary to help the rooted users.

    What happened last time was.....the rollout came out and alot of us were suffering from severe battery drain from the OTA continual download.

    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)

    Good info.

    As an aside... not exactly OFF topic, but not directly on it either...
    Dont unroot until we know for sure that they havent messed with the bootloader.

    Yea I'm hoping this works this time like it did for 2.1 though. Who knows if they slipstreamed something in last minute to override something and let it install. I dunno, I know I should be fine. I'll let someone else let it try to install and confirm. Clockwork should block this as well, right?

    Just spoke with a member on a site that cannot be named here. This person is of very high regards in my opinion. He assures that it is just like the 2.1 and to follow the instructions in the OP.

    I have never been prompted for an official OTA, well mabye the very first one, in early December last year but I don't even think that was a real update, it went from 2.0 to 2.0 I think there was just a small bug fix

    The 2.0.1 update I installed myself from a leaked version I found on the forum and 2.1 came by way of AdamZ S/G 6.0 and 2.2 also leaked here at D/F so I guess we will see what the official FrozenYogurt brings my way....Wohl Nichts
