    Astro doesn't have root access.

    And this is still off-topic. You can simply redo this procedure to reroot after the update.

    had to use this tutorial again after rooting 2.2 but wanted to get the 2.2.1 update. you might want to link on here this guide for people who wish to unroot in the OP. i figured unrooting it would be as intuitive as it seemed, but i wanted to make sure by finding instructions.

    Unroot/Back to Stock (2.2) Without .sbf or RSD Lite - Droid 1 Only

    but i'm now running 2.2.1 rooted.

    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.
    I tried the above method, re-checked the changes I had made, and when I install I get:

    Verifying update package...
    Installing update...
    E:Error in /sdcard/update.zip
    (Status 6)
    Installation aborted

    Any ideas? I'm using mediCkOne's full FRG22D ROM to start with, so all the original system apps should be there.

    Status 6 indicates that there is a problem with the format of one of the files. In trying to get this to work on my phone I had the exact same problem (well once I figured out that I had two update.zip files in the root of my sdcard). Turns out it was all because I used a file editor that did something to the updater-script file that caused it to be unreadable by the Android system. Windows notepad will definitely do it but so do other file editors. I ended up using Notepad++ to make the changes. That solved the status 6 error allowing the update to fully install.

    Yes, either use a linux system or notepad++ in windows to edit the updater-script file. This is all I'm going to say.

    And PLEASE, even though this was posted in this thread, let's make this the last discussion of this side topic or on anything else off the original topic here. This thread is WAY too long for it. If need be to continue, please quote log's post and start a new thread.

    Would this work with the newest update that came out a few days ago? I know it says for all OS versions, but I'm skeptical.
