1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

Do I have to actively do anything to avoid 2.1?

    After 5 days or so on Sholes, I have no intention of going back. I've heard that Sholes 2.0.2 (the one I'm running, didn't upgrade to 2.0.3) blocks OTA updates so I won't have to worry about 2.1 installing itself and unrooting (or even worse, bricking) my phone.

    I'll wait until whenever the Sholes team releases a 2.1 ROM to upgrade to whatever they have to offer since I'm so thrilled with how the phone works since installing this ROM.

    Thanks for the info in advance.

    I renamed the etc/security/otacerts.zip file - this is supposed to block OTA

    EDIT: Sorry - just realized you are on Sholes. I'm running a different ROM.

    I have the latest version (2.0.3). Do I have to worry about OTA update erasing my rooted Droid phone?

    If you have SPRecovery installed (the newer version) it automatically blocks OTA updates. This of course has been answered at length at least 400 times.

    Anything after or including the one linked in the middle thread of my signature will block it.
