    Head over to droid-life.com and they have a 3 part step by step video of how to root and intall droidmod 1.0 on your phone. Its sooooo simple and just takes a few minutes. If your un-sure about rooting like I was this just makes it simple and like I said anyone can do it. I'm doing mine tonight woot woot!Plus you get all the 2.1 goodies like live wallpapers and MT everything :)

    I'm seriously considering doing the same thing. Anyone know what will happen to the phone when/if the OTA becomes available?

    And to the OP, thanks for the info. Lots of cool stuff on that site.

    If the update comes out, your phone will prompt you to update. Should you update, you will lose root. You can disable ota updates though.

    If the update comes out AND the rom you have flashed does not block the updates you will be prompted. I think most roms do block the update.

    If you are prompted and elect to say no, but reboot your phone....upon reboot the update will automatically occur.

    It is possible to root your phone and not apply a rom. (most people don't stop at this stage though, but you could apply themes and what not to your stock rom.) In that case the OTA update prompt will occur.

    Rename otacerts.zip under /etc/security. No more OTA updating fears.

    Done and done.
