    I got the update and accept to download it and it failed. So I took the battery out and see if it will ask me to do it again but it has not. Will it remind me to do it again? I want this update.

    It's a mandatory update, so it will. Or you can install the update manually and have it NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW!!! :)

    WAIT! You have a custom ROM. Your custom recovery image is what blocked the install.

    What do you want the update for?

    I did have ultimate Droid Roman but then restored to stock and right away it popped up. I am rooted so is that the reason it failed?

    SPRecovery or ClockworkMod Recovery blocked the install.

    Why do you want the update? FRG83D is nice, but it's not as good as any custom ROM, and rooting it can be a pain.

    Will the MotoCache1 way restore the root after accepting the upgrade?

    Hey fur - are you sure that CW Recovery will block the installation of that OTA update? I'd consider it a godsend if that's true, as my Dinc. and Droid X are rooted with CW Recovery installed and I want no part of any OTA updates from Motorola or Verizon. My Droid 1 with SPR seems to be resisting any efforts by Motorola to do an update, and I realize that the Dinc has no connection to Motorola's Evil Empire, but I do worry about my DX being vulnerable.

    Thanks much!

    That - is a *major* relief! I am so worried about that OTA update for the Droid X. The Dinc...if they do update it, it'll be awhile, and at least Motorola will have no hand in that one.

    Thanks!

    Answer unclear. Ask later.

    All signs point to yes.

    Well, you heard the toy. :)
