    and a quick update, i just went back into the hold x button and power dos mode and decided to just wipe everything and re install update.zip so i could just add on from the start with that different/new gmail account.

    now im rooted again, if i get that update to new software window, do i decline (ask later) and will this keep prompting me?

    and more importantly how do i get this
    Peter Alfonso

    rom on my phone (only reason i did this) & running as smooth as possible (kernal wise and what not, i want speed and stability).

    Yes it will.

    Because your phone has been selected by vzw to upgrade to 2.2.2 (latest version).

    Solution is install a ROM at 2.2.2 or has the ota block installed.

    If that is gingerbread ROM its not ready for everyday use in my opinion. Have to overclock to make it useable and the battery life is terrible compared to froyo. Just my opinion of course.

    You can flash the ROM by renaming that file update.zip and rebooting into recovery (not dos mode lol) and allow update.zip and apply update.zip.

    So I was very impatient last night & without any further instructions took shots in the dark. So I was rooted & had no idea how to put a rom on like peters gingerbread.

    So check it I just said f it. Downloaded that gpa14 zip file or whatever to my computer mounted my phone and dropped on the root of my phone (with my original update.zip)

    I then downloaded clockworkrecovery & installed I guess. Because I then unmounted powered down then booted into x button mode dos recovery thingy & clockwork was now my new dos mode or recovery....but it had pretty much the same options as pdrecovery (? Can't remember the name)

    So I wipe format then wipe cache and allowed for installed then installed. But I just installed that gpa14 file (evidently didn't rename it) instead of update.zip (the original one I had from rooting) & it all work.

    This phone is now dope again smooth great battery. But my phone doesn't work in call...of all things haha so been gettin text & calls but when I connect can't hear anything. Was that due to me puttin this rom on incorrectly?

    & if I want to get to stock root do I just flash cache & format again & install that original update.zip file again?

    & that new 2.2.2 what should I do about that?

    The original update.zip is just root. Not a ROM. If you want a stock ROM look in GimpSource or MetiCkMod sections on this forum.

    Question Rooted, now what?

    This has probably been answered elsewhere in this post, however, I simply could not force myself to read through 130 something odd pages of post and replies and thanks yous. (That mentioned, Thank you so much for such a wonderful description). Also, if this is answered in some other post please feel free to ling me there. That said, now that I have rooted my Droid, what should I do now? I keep reading things about nandroid, backups, flashing, and the like and can't really keep up with all the lingo and everything. Thanks in advance!

    Reboot into recovery, go to the backup/restore menu, and make a simple nandroid backup. You can now futz with your device as you see fit and you can always bring it back to this point in time by restoring that backup.

    I rooted FRG22D using the motocache instructions here about a month ago. Now just received the notification from verizon about FRG83G update.

    Do I need to go back to stock FRG22D, apply the FRG83G update, then re-root? Is there a rooted FRG83G image for the motocache method?
