    I'm going to venture out there and say this will flash a whole new image even if running SPRecovery. We will soon find out.

    My rooted phone says just "android update 2.1 69.6mb requires restart" and a [download] button is below that. I've clicked download and it doesn't do anything on my phone. It was like this prior to this evening too.

    This I put on Verizon for wanting to flash a new image, I doubt Motorola or Google wants this done since the Droid is used as a development phone.

    Didn't all the ROM makers include the feature to block the last 2.1 upgrade, if so why wouldn't this work again?

    From someone at alldroid:


    # begin build properties
    # autogenerated by buildinfo.sh
    ro.build.id=ESE81
    ro.build.display.id=ESE81
    ro.build.version.incremental=29593
    ro.build.version.sdk=7
    ro.build.version.codename=REL
    ro.build.version.release=2.1-update1
    ro.build.date=Mon Mar 22 17:29:00 PDT 2010 <<<< build in march??
    ro.build.date.utc=1269304140
    ro.build.type=user
    ro.build.user=android-build
    ro.build.host=android-test-11.mtv.corp.google.com
    ro.build.tags=test-keys
    ro.product.model=Droid
    ro.product.brand=verizon
    ro.product.name=voles
    ro.product.device=sholes
    ro.product.board=sholes
    ro.product.cpu.abi=armeabi-v7a
    ro.product.cpu.abi2=armeabi
    ro.product.manufacturer=Motorola
    ro.product.locale.language=en
    ro.product.locale.region=US
    ro.wifi.channels=
    ro.board.platform=omap3
    # ro.build.product is obsolete; use ro.product.device
    ro.build.product=sholes
    # Do not try to parse ro.build.description or .fingerprint
    ro.build.description=voles-user 2.1-update1 ESE81 29593 release-keys
    ro.build.fingerprint=verizon/voles/sholes/sholes:2.1-update1/ESE81/29593:user/release-keys
    # end build properties

    only thing that looks fishy to me is the build date...if it was a recent build wouldnt it say may instead of march?

    That does sound fishy.

    Let me ask a question, if we have been using ROM manager and wiped data/cache a million times for clean ROM installs over the last few months how do we know if SPRecovery is still I guess active? I see I have two files(they look white in Astro) that say recovery-0.99.3 and 3b on my SD card but I can't open them...does this sound right?

    The alldroid sholes-ota zip file was exactly 66.6 mb, I rebooted after installing the zip file and firmware version is 2.1 update1 so I guess it's the same

    Going to try SBF now
