    Hi i Would like to hold off updating to 2.1 because of it's 2d frame drop issues, but I keep getting the update nag screen. I read about renaming the otacerts file but I heard that it drains the battery life quite a bit. are there still custom 2.01 roms available that would block the update? or any other suggestions thanks in advance.:)

    1. Make sure you have SPRecover 0.99.3b installed.

    2. DO NOT rename OTACERTS. In fact make sure it is intact and fine.

    3. ACCEPT and INSTALL the upgrade. ***BUT***

    It will tell you that it will 'reboot to finish the install.'

    Allow it to do so. SPrecovery will stop this from really happening.

    When it boots into SPrecovery, hit the power button until "reboot" is selected, then hit the camera button to reboot.

    The Verizon updater will be happy you updated. You, however, will not have updated.
    You will not be prompted again.

    I recommend using a standards compliant browser like FireFox. I followed the link and ended up at:
    How-To Root your stock 2.1 Droid

    That even has pictures and step by step directions.

    Thanks, got that thread bookmarked and send others to it often. Every now and then someone comes up with an error code that doesn't exist in the list though.

    You you're right. It's on my list to One Day go look at the source and figure out the error codes.

    Until then. YOU are the rescue squad. I'm just a guy helping out in spare time ;)

    Cheers, brother,
