    Updating?

    I got my Droid 2 a while ago and recently rooted it. My question now is can I still update the phone using settings/about phone/system updates? Or would doing so brick my phone? Thanks in advance for the help

    You cannot receive OTA updates once rooted.

    I don't believe that is entirely correct. Some say you can update, but you will loose root.

    Hmm. Well, on my Droid 1, I wasn't able to download OTA, I thought it might be some universal rule of android.

    An OTA update was just pushed to my droid I accepted it and tried to install just to see what would happen. I am rooted. It rebooted and came back that it failed. Phone is still working fine. So i'm going to say no you can't update and it probably won't brick your phone.

    I can attest that I had the same issue. Darkonion made a good tutorial. Follow it EXACTLY and you will have the new update.

    this is where I messed up:


    5. Next, extract the patch (pst_flash.ini) to the Motorola/RSD Lite folder. It'll ask you if you want to overwrite the file. Choose yes.

    (My file path to place the file was: My Computer -> C Drive -> Program Files -> Motorola -> RSD Lite)

    Not sure what all it fixed, but one thing was the bug that kept contacts from a complete sync with exchange server. As soon as I updated, boom they were all there, prior to the update, I only had about 60 percent of them.
    Fascinated!!!
