    Hi. Its definitely the correct place. I was rooted using z4root and accepted the 2.2.1 update and promptly lost root. Z4root was unable to reroot, but I was able to achieve root using the superoneclick found over at XDA. Its not an app but computer software. I would try unrooting first, accepting the update, then try z4root or use superoneclick.
    Good luck

    Actually this isn't the right place :tongue: A mod will probably move you to the right section soon :)

    Yes, wanting to find out about hacking information isn't exactly potential news. Let's try it over here.

    Bump, I am also in the same boat and rooted with SBF Recovery.

    What do we do? Will we need to unroot our phones, install the update, and then re-root? If so, how do we do this?

    Thanks!

    If you're using a custom recovery tool like SPRecovery or Clockwork, they should block the update if you accept it. Of you don't have one, the update will break root and you can always re-root using one of the methods on this forum; this one will work: Root Droid 1 - regardless of OS version and it will install SPRecovery if you do the whole process. Then you won't have to worry about breaking root again.

    If you want to try and install the update without breaking root, you can try this method: Installing FRG83D on a Motocache1 rooted Droid

    I wasn't able to because my ROM has been modified too much; if you're using a more-or-less stock version of FRG22D, you should be okay.

    Your other choice would be to start from root, use a recovery image like above, and then flash a rooted version of FRG83D. You'll have to wipe everything and re-load your apps like with any other ROM, but it's up to you which method you want to try.

    Page not found for your link.

    Is there any way to simply unroot, install update, and re-root again?

    I am also in the same boat.

    Rooted Droid 1 running Froyo with SPRecovery...only added ChevyNo1's med voltage 1.1 kernel.

    Is there a reliable rooted version of FRG83D available yet?

    If not what are the other options?

    Thanks in advance.

    Accept and install the update, reroot using link two in my sig, or install metiCkOne's FRG83D rooted stock from DF. There's also one up on Peter Alphonso's website. I'm sure there are others floating around as well.

    For a rooted, stock version try this link: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/metickone/104030-rooted-stock-odexed-deodexed-frg83d.html

    For a ROM with most of the bloatware removed, try this: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/metickone/104654-beta-metickmod-frg83d-froyo-2-2-1-a.html

    You can search through the other custom ROM threads on this forum; metiCkOne does a great job with these, and is receptive to changes and/or problems if you run into any.
