    Let me reexplain what I did/what the situation is.

    I took my stock 2.2.1 Droid and rooted it using the "root any version method."

    As part of rooting, I took the file that already on the Droid named and renamed it to and then used the downloaded .zip file and renamed that one to per the root instructions.

    Rooted great, tethered/overclocked, etc.

    About a week later it asks me to install a new update. I say okay, it says installation blocked. It repeats this. I want it to stop annoying me every 2 days, and thinking that it keeps seeing the file I used to root as an update, I rename it

    It still keeps asking me to update, so I post here. I restart the phone and tell it to allow installation from, but since I renamed to, assuming that was STILL the file I used to root, nothing installs as it says cannot be found.

    When an OTA update comes, does it overwrite whatever is currently on the phone?

    So could be the update from 2.2>2.2.1 or 2.2.1>2.2.2.

    IIRC if you find user teddyearp, he has a small server with lots of Droid files. You would be looking for the ota in his list with frg83d to frg83g.
