    Question Pulling the Trigger to Frozen Yougurt 2.2 :P

    So I have been going all over the Web looking into Froyo 2.2 on my Motorola Droid I just recently Rooted my Stock 2.1 Ive been seeing a lot of posts like this http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...tml#post528613 but all seem to entail wiping your cache and loading it back to your factory setting.

    I really dont want to reset my phone, I love all my little changes that I have made to it. When I was at the Stock 2.0.1 I download the 2.1 update.zip updated it way back when and was able to retain all of my settings.

    So what im getting down to is, is it worth waiting for Motorola to release the official update.zip to 2.2? I heard you loose root and Superuser access.

    If you are already rooted then you don't need to use a step by step instruction. Just follow the instructions on the link I gave you.

    These answers are all of this board.

    If you do an OTA update you will lose root.
    If you don't want to ever reset your phone, You should not load any Custom Roms and should be careful what you download.

    Don't know what the issue is though, I can Factory reset, load a brand new Rom and get everything back to the way it just was in less then an hour...thank you Titanium Backup.

    Thank you for your quick reply, I had looked at this post. My concern is does it have all of the features that 2.2 is intended to have I know im asking a lot and I know the information is out there Ive been on three different forums and its been some information overload considering I did a crash course in rooting and how custom recoveries work.

    Here is my game plan, im going to use ClockWorkMod Recovery to create a ROM of my current setup, I will then use Titanium to create a backup and im going to jump ahead and pull the trigger!

    Thanks for the boost in confidence and the push.

    That worked! Now the real question, should I leave the kernel or pop in ChevyNo1's?

    U gotta try chevys, if nothing else to see what speed and voltage your phone will run stable. Try ULV and move up from there.

    If you do an OTA update you will lose root.

    So if my phone is OTA updated let's say, next month, and a year from now I want to root and install my own rom I will not be able to?

    I'm good with 2.2 right now, but down the road when I replace my Droid with another phone, I think it would be fun to play around with or use as a secondary handheld computer.

    I don't want to be locked out from modding this thing, I just don't want to mess with it while I need it to function as a phone.

    Make sure that whatever kernel you choose to use is compatible with the ROM you are running. Some ROM's will not run with Chevy's just like some do not run with P3's. Go to the developer of your ROM's thread and see what others there are running or what the developer recommends for kernels. That way you do not throw yourself into a boot loop or have battery recognition issues.

    I guess I'm a little late but I was going to recommend Chevy's SS 4.4, because he also has the bkapp/rstapp tool that quickly and easily does full backups and restores of all your apps, settings, and EVERYTHING (all I had to do was replace homescreen widgets and give root apps superuser access again the first time I ran them. EVERYTHING else was restored!) This release is based on the OTA release of Froyo for the Nexus One from 7/1/2010 and it's likely to be as "final" as Froyo gets. We'll see when the OTA update actually goes out for the Droid, but I don't imagine it's going to be any different.
