    Ok Im not sure what to believe but I wanted to know if I'll be ok to receive the FROYO update this week? I have SPRecovery installed but DID NOT root.I was honestly thinking of doing so until I heard that 2.2 is being pushed out this week.Will I still be able to update my phone even though I have SPRecovery installed and not Rooted?

    Yes, you will still be able to install Android 2.2 (Froyo) on your device; if not over-the-air, than there's always manually.

    Thank you!
    Im still thinking of ROOTING but figured Id wait and see how I like stock 2.2 FROYO.
    I do have another question though...
    If I wanted to get SPRecovery off my phone and back to the stock recovery can I do so?

    If you get the update over the air you will have to tell SPRecovery to install it. Otherwise ii will block it. Beyond that you will have no problem.

    Yes, you can remove SPRecovery whenever you want to; just flash a 2.0.1 .sbf image using RSD Lite.

    If you want more detail/explanation, let me know.

    In that link you'd use rsdlite, which you used to install sprecovery, and flash the 2.01 stock file. That will put the stock recovery tool back into place. Then you should be able to update to 2.1 automatically. Though at the moment some are reporting problems with the OTA and are manually applying the 2.1 update instead.

    If its needed, its applied as an update.zip file in the root of your sdcard once on 2.01 stock.

    Yes, but you might have to update to 2.1 manually, as some users have reported not receiving the update over-the-air.

    You don't need to UNINSTALL SPRecovery, just boot in recovery mode, select "install" and then tell it to allow update.zip installation, install update.zip, and then let the phone reboot.

    Then wait. And wait. And wait. And then it'll boot fine.
