    I've been wondering that myself as I began to receive that stupid notification today. I was told by another member to wait for my Rom to get patched or updated for it (in my case BBv05), and reflash. Just ignore it, select "install later" and it leaves you alone until your phone sleeps again. Just don't do it, it may screw your root. I'm sure the Devs will have a solution for us soon.dancedroid

    If you have a custom recovery (clockworkmod or sprecovery) installed go ahead and accept it. The install will fail, and you can go on your merry way. If all you have is root and not custom recovery, the update will remove your root and you will have to do it again. This is how it was for the last update.

    I haven't got the update notice yet, so if I install clockwork, and excepted the update, what exactly happens? does the phone reflash from the back up?

    The phone will boot into clockworkmod recovery and start to install the update. Clockwork will see that it is meant for stock recovery and abort install. Reboot the phone and you will not receive any more notifications, until the next update. Soon a rooted version of the update will be posted and you can install that, so you are up to date.

    If you have Droid1 and latest ClockWorkMod

    Go through the motions to allow it to install. (Install Now)
    The phone will attempt to reboot but at some point it will stop and give you a warning icon. (traingle with "!" and the android guy)
    Press and release the on/off switch and you will be able to choose Reboot Now from the recovery menu.
    Once it reboots this time, you will not be bugged to update.

    If you don't press the on/off switch, it will sit at the warning screen forever.

    I installed clockwork and made a backup, hit istall for the update, it didn't boot into recovery it installed the update, broke root, and broke Z4root app.

    Recover from your back up

    I don't know how that update applied itself but recover from your back up and you should be back to the pre-update state.
