    What do you do if you have a rooted phone and there is an OTA update (2.2.1)? Will doing the update screw up your root? Not sure what to do? Any help would be appreciated.

    You will have to bring your Droid back to stock to accept the update.

    I have clockworkmod recovery and I couldn't install the update either. Now that I check for updates it doesn't even show the update.

    That's not completely true. If you rooted without loading SPRecovery or ClockWork Recovery (using one of the one click methods) then the update WILL install and WILL break your root. The SuperUser icon will still be in your drawer but no apps that require root will be able to get root.

    I tried re-rooting with z4root and soup or root and both failed. Had to use Super one click to first un-root and then re-root.

    Hope this helps.

    I believe that SPRecovery oe ClockWork recovery) will block the update from be installed.
