    This forum has gone to the rooters.
    Part of it is the inundation of people asking the same question that anyone who actually read the original post would know the answer to. It's pretty clear:

    For example -- "I forced my update last week -- will I get the new OTA?"

    Answer: As a side note this new full update will not work once you use last weeks OTA update. The script specifically looks at what you currently have running.

    It's even in bold, folks.

    "Do I need to be rooted to install this?"

    Answer:I verified this by using RSDLite 4.7 from Peter Alfonso along with the ESD20 SBF file (The original 2.0 that came on the DROID back in Nov when I got my phone), and then immediately...booted into recovery and let it run the update - and I now have a nice, virgin 2.2 (FRG01B) OS on my phone.

    This shouldn't need explaining to anyone who rooted, but even those who didn't should pay attention to the following phrases -- "original 2.0 that came on the DROID" and "virgin 2.2". Since the Droid never came rooted from the factory the fact that he has a virgin install means it's not rooted now and it'll update from any previous version of Droid-flavored Android.

    The rest of the post says it'll work with Clockwork Recovery, SPRecovery, and stock recovery, further proof you don't need to be rooted to get it. My Droid didn't come with SPRecovery on it, and I doubt yours came from Motorola with Clockwork Recovery on it either. It also says it's the exact same build as the OTA that went out, just a different file. This one replaces the entire OS instead of just patching files, so other than being a less-bootloop-prone method, it's the exact same thing as far as the end-user is concerned. Furthermore, since it's the same build, if you already updated you don't need to flash this one in, unless you're having some problems and think it might be due to the update. Then you should consider giving this a try and see if it fixes your issues.

    So, now that the circus seems to be chasing the knife-thrower off and bringing the elephants in, it's time to choose. Either force this one or wait for the OTA to push it to your phone.

    Unless this 01b build has the 22 build tweaks, and is as fast , I'll stay with the 22 build.
    22 build is faster , smoother , and has better battery life , why would I change ?
    To Droid or not to Droid is no longer a question , DROID!

    There really is no definitive answer SSHGuru until somebody that has used both versions ventures in here to give you an answer.

    Theoretically it should be a cleaner install because it is a complete ROM rather than just an update to certain files.

    In my opinion I will say that this version is "better" because of the "cleaner" install.

    Well for one, build 22, whatever it is, is only for root users. A lot of stock users are curious about this b/c they forced last weeks' OTA, and now are (understandably) unsure what to do.

    I've actually been waiting for your answer

    So if I have 2.2 from last week the only way to install the new one would be to root, go back to 2.1, unroot, then go back to installing the new 2.2?

    Yes go back to 2.0 or 2.1 (it does not matter) then boot into recovery and install this.

    You don't have to unroot to install. Do keep in mind that this version WILL break root.

    Oh I see how it is! (Igot my info from CK in IRC actually, so I was in the same boat as you )

    You technically don't have to root, but you do have to use rsdlite to flash back. At least I can't think of another way at this point...

    +1. There's a reason why people flash three times while installing ROMs over top of each other.

    Also +1.

    To make it as simple as possible to clear up any confusion -- if you already updated you're current. Heck, you're ahead of the curve (for the next week). Unless you have an issue that you think is directly related to the update you don't need to do anything. If there is an issue you'll need to roll your phone back to install this or receive this OTA.

    SBF to root and to unroot - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum

    That will set you right up. Just be careful.

    If you've not already updated, either use this to update or wait for the OTA. It's the same either way.
