    Rooted X and 2.2

    How will this affect the over the air 2.2 froyo update?

    will we have to figure out how to root it again after 2.2 comes out?

    Will we even be able to update to 2.2 without unrooting the device?

    how do we unroot this rig?

    I really dont want any custom roms, but I would like to have flash on my device... I miss it from my droid 1

    will we be able to update to 2.2 and still maintain root?

    most likely

    Will we even be able to update to 2.2 without unrooting the device?

    the OTA update should remove root

    how do we unroot this rig?

    not figured out yet but give it some time

    I really dont want any custom roms, but I would like to have flash on my device... I miss it from my droid 1

    im not sure about this.. maybe someone else can chime in?

    will we be able to update to 2.2 and still maintain root?

    cant yet need into the bootloader for that

    I just asked this same question. Abe21599 thinks receiving the official Froyo update would undo rooting.

    I'd have to agree. I can't really imagine them letting us slip by rooted and allowing us the official Froyo without unrooting our phones.

    this is just what i recall from having the droid 1 when I rooted it

    custom roms would be preset to block ALL OTA updates so i presume if you dont have a way of blocking it it will install itself sooner or later and remove root..

    Then what we need to do is figure out what service is being used or what IP address is being checked for updates and put a stop to it for now. I don't want my phone automatically updating and killing root. I'd rather stay rooted on 2.1 than lose it to 2.2.

    Well I already figured out how to block OTA updates from installing for us haha. Just move/rename the file at:

    /system/etc/security/otacerts.zip

    I just renamed it to otacerts_.zip using Root Explorer mounted as R/W. This file contains the certs used to validate the OTA update prior to installing. Without those certs, no OTA update will validate. :-)

    I rooted Droid X, so if I got Froyo 2.2 update, will it brick my phone or no?
