    I have been rooted and been running frb01b for two weeks or so. This morning I saw the OTA message indicating I can apply the update if I push the "Install.." button (I dont remember the exact message.).

    I thought the existance of SPRecovery would prevent OTA from installing, or even downloading. Do other people experience the same problem?

    I didn't acknowledge to the invite. I need to get some help here first.

    Thanks!

    I have been running BB V0.4 and I got the message too. All you need to do is accept the update, it will try to install, and it will fail. Just reboot and then it wont bother you again.

    Both SpRecovery and Clockwork block the installation of the OTA update.

    Ok. This is what happened after I accepted the OTA:

    First the phone rebooted. When it came back, I found there were fewer apps, about 2 or 3 less than what I had before. It took the phone 2 minutes or so to become responding. I thought the phone was locked before it showed sign of life.

    When the phone is back to normal, the 2 or 3 missing apps were downloaded from the market automatically (I saw the sync sign on the status bar.).

    This was what happened 5 minutes ago. Hope everything is the same (or better?).
