    Not true in an absolute sense, just not the FRG22D update -- and any other official ones will break your root as well as replace your custom recovery image. So, while you technically can use them, there's very little incentive to do so unless you have to run stock.

    You can't "back up" stock recovery. The fastest and easiest way to get it back -- at present -- is to install the 79MB FRG01B update patch. Then you install whatever update you crave and re-root using this method. Or you could just install a rooted version of the OTA update, which generally hits within 24 hours of an update rolling out.

    Actually, you can backup the stock recovery. And even without a backup, getting it back is easy if your phone had FRS and you are still running the original boot image (haven't replaced your kernel), as detailed in my prior post.

    If there is any useful purpose for knowing how to back up and restore the recovery partition I could do a separate topic on it, but honestly, I can't see a purpose. Heck, I could make an SBF of just the stock recovery for that matter.

    Thanks guys for the response, especially for the very clear method for achieving what I was looking for

    Now that I think it through from your explanation it probably makes the most sense to leave sprecovery flashed, and if a new "official" google update.zip becomes available, I can simply remove the recovery check/flash commands from updater-script since the zip file no longer needs to be signed to execute in sprecovery! Is this correct?

    With this I can can still get the benefits of a custom recovery (such as full nandroid backup) but stay on the "stock" version of Android.

    Excellent work! I flashed back to 2.0.1 then manually updated to 2.1-update1 hoping to get FRG01B, I woke up this morning and ended up with FRG22D! So, obviously I was miffed because I wanted to try Universal Androot. But then I found this guide and my FRG22D was rooted in no time!

    so you were at stock 2.1-update1, and woke up this morning with an update that changed you to FRG22D? Was it a single large file?

    Hmmm. If he only had to update once that would be an ESE81 to FRG22D file (or more likely just a "master OTA" FRG22D). It would be nice to have a copy of that file. My DEV Droid is on ESE81 right now -- guess I need to leave it on and see if it collects anything.

    my thoughts exactly!
