    I'm seeing a few people this morning that received the OTA notification and installed it, but it didn't work, and then didn't notify again. If you want to try it again, here is the file that was just pushed to my phone, I pulled it and uploaded to my Dropbox:

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4033527/5932ba328825.signed-voles-FRG83G-from-FRG83D.5932ba32.zip

    This is just the patch, so you'll need to be on FRG83D already. Also, if you're running a custom recovery, you should be able to move this to the root of your SD Card, rename to update.zip (depending on your recovery) and flash it like anything else.

    people were posting that they got the OTA and it didn't work, then it wasn't notifying them again to update... hence the link so they could stick it on their sd card and try again

    Root

    Hi all I was just wondering if this update affected root (did you have to re-root afterwards)? If so do current methods still work? If so could you tell me what method you are using?

    Thank you.

    the method in my signature will still root it - it's the most full-proof method there is for the D1, while we're still on Froyo anyway

    because of the tinkering I was doing, I actually was not rooted when I installed this update, so I can't say for sure if you'll lose root... but historically speaking, it's likely

    How to use?

    The ota failed for me... first time in three updates. It's been all day, still at 2.2.1 and no additional notification of a pending update. Am I supposed to put this zip file on the sd card? (I'm at stock, no root), or is that approach just for folks with SPRecovery etc.?

    Ok I looked at the flyer in the attached link but I'm not sure I get what problems it fixed (I had a very long day and my brain isn't working)... Can someone give an example of each of the two things it says are corrected? Not sure what an "unintended recipient list" is or what they mean by "correct message populates when messaging app is opened quickly"--when was it 'incorrect'?

    I'm just curious if these are things I had issues with previously...

    Put this file on the root of your SD card, rename it to update.zip (make sure you can see file extensions so you don't name it update.zip.zip). Power down your phone. Then, while holding down "x" on your keyboard, power back up and keep holding "x". When you see the triangle with the exclamation point, close the keyboard, then hold down the volume up key and tap the camera button. That should bring up a menu. Open up your keyboard again and use the D-pad to navigate to "apply sdcard: update.zip" and select that. Theoretically, this should work... once it's done, reboot and hopefully in your settings/about phone it says FRG83G and 2.2.2... Let me know!

    I never saw these issues on my phone, but they were evidently widespread enough to cause a patch... So I honestly can't tell you exactly what it means :) I'm sure someone else has experienced it, though. *looks around*
