    The droid won't pull updates. you need to wait for the update to get pushed to your device. its a staggered release so it can take several days.

    So, if we're rooted, just ignore the update? Will it keep trying to push it to us?

    Hi.
    We weren't planning to use a private community since the update is only impacting one aspect of performance. The survey should do. Sorry, but it looks like the push didn't happen. X-(
    I think I should close this community, though. :)
    i got this email a couple days ago i dont have my droid anymore though

    What Damage Will It Do?


    You may be right! I'd only heard of people loosing root with past OTA's. I decided to try the update and after seeing a few progress bars fly by, I'm stuck at the Exclamation Point Triangle and the little green droid.

    What has just happened to my phone?
    Any ideas on what to do next?

    UPDATE: Hitting the power button brought me to my clockwork recovery screen. The text that came up says:

    "ClockworkMod Recovery v.2.5.0.1
    Finding update package....
    Opening update package...
    Verifying update package...
    E:failed to verify whole-file signature
    E: signature verification failed
    Installation aborted."

    I have my Clockwork options and will reboot the phone.

    So I guess if you are running rooted Stock the way I am, using ADB (not SP recovery), the update might just fail?

    If you're rooted, with an alternate recovery like SPRecovery or Clockwork Recovery installed, and if you have a custom rom installed, then you don't have to worry - the OTA Update WILL fail. It will be looking for certain things, and when it doesn't see them the installation will simply abort. You can, under those circumstances, accept the OTA and just let it fail in the installation. My concern is for the people who've rooted, but haven't installed a custom recovery or custom rom. Those people are in danger of having Motorola's update screw with their phone and possibly prevent future re-rooting. Motorola does not take kindly to people who choose to root their phones and makes every effort to un-do what the people did.

    Just be careful out there...

    I've discovered that whenever I've had an update, Swype stops working. Well, that's not entirely true; it works by touching, but not by swiping. When I got the last update I simply deleted the data on Swype and used the installer to generate a new license.

    If your running a custom rom then the "update" will most likely be a "downgrade" :p

    Thanks UltraDroid, I guess I'll take my chances with the update. I have my D1 rooted with SPRecovery but, running stock OS. Just haven't grown a pair to install a custom rom yet. Went really slow and careful with root and made it no problem. This forum is the greatest and there's no way I could have rooted with out the helpful info you guys share.:)
    Thanks a bunch, Shaggy

    Instead of focusing on 2.2 updates, they should go ahead and work on 2.3 instead.

    But 2.3 is Gingerbread, and the chance of Motorola providing that to the original Droid1 is very slim. If you are rooted though, you can avail yourself of several really good Gingerbread custom roms which have been out there for several months now. This goes back to one of my original points: most OTA updates are *worthless* for people who've already rooted their phones and installed a custom rom. The feature enhancements being provided are usually "old news" at the time of delivery, and carry the danger of wiping out your existing root while installing a dubious software "upgrade".

    the 2.2.2 update was as simple as recompiling the source.. 2.3 would take a long time.
