    This method will always work (it says any version doesn't it? ) but you can save some time with some work beforehand as this update will overwrite your custom recovery and remove root access.

    Edit the meta-inf/com/google/android/updater-script in the FRG83D update.zip to keep your custom recovery and root access, then install the update.zip using SPRecovery.

    Changes:

    Line 1054 (comment with # or delete entirely)
    Code:
     package_extract_dir("recovery", "/system");
    Add bolded after line 1058
    Code:
    set_perm_recursive(0, 0, 0755, 0644, "/system");
    set_perm_recursive(0, 2000, 0755, 0755, "/system/bin");
    set_perm(0, 0, 6755, "/system/bin/su");
    Note this will only work if you haven't messed with your FRG22D too much, mainly that no system apps have been removed. You can still get it work if you uninstalled some apps, you just have to find the lines that patch that app and remove them from the script.

    Where is the update stored on my phone? Is there a 'system downloads' or something similar where I can find the OTA?

    Its in the /cache directory with a really long file name

    I updated this am using the ota update without having to lose root and it was pretty painless. I oopened up the update archive and removed the updates to system apps I've removed and then appied the update. Before rebooting I mounted the sd card as a device then I took motocaches update zip and remove the install stuff for busy box or superuser to prevent stock recovery from kicking in and now I'm happily updated.

    That would work also -- everyone else just keep in mind that you MUST go directly back into your custom recovery and apply MotoCache's zip before booting to your FRG83D system the first time, otherwise you will need to do the entire (sbf) process again.

    The technique I mentioned essentially just makes sure that the OTA update does not disable your root, and you can do the update in one pass.

    So this needs to be done if you use log's method above?

    **EDIT** LOL , I mean your method.....didn't notice you had replied as well.

    log's method is ideally the way to go... I did it the way I did so that I would have the newest recovery script on my phone in case I decided to de-root for any reason... using log's method, you don't get the new stock recovery script.

    I'm attempting to install the OTA update using your instructions here but am coming up short. My Droid is running 2.2 rooted with the method at the begining of this thread (worked perfectly!). I've edited the updater-script in the FRG83D OTA update with the information above. I removed the line with package_extract_dir("recovery", "/system"); and added the line with set_perm(0, 0, 6755, "/system/bin/su"); immediately after line
    set_perm_recursive(0, 2000, 0755, 0755, "/system/bin");.
    When I attempt to run the update.zip from within SPRecovery I get this message:
    -- Install from sdcard...
    Finding update package...
    Opening update package...
    Verifying update package...
    Installing update...
    Installation aborted.

    Any ideas?
    I opened the updater-script in the update.zip file I copied to the root of my sdcard just to make sure those changes I made were there- and they were.

    Edit: I have not removed any system apps. Just to make sure I went through the system folders referenced in updater-script line by line and verified that all referenced apps/files were actually present on my phone. I don't think it's even getting that far though.
