    I rooted my Droid 1 about 6 months ago to Android Version 2.2.1, build number FRG83D using instructions found in the article "Rooting the Droid 1 - regardless of OS version" at the following link:

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-labs/74028-root-droid-1-regardless-os-version.html

    Several times per week, for the past several months, Verizon has been trying to push a FRG83G update to my phone and I cannot install it. It does not install on my phone, however, and I suspect it is due to how my phone was rooted (my understanding is that the root i installed has a component that rejects os updates).

    I think I need a .zip file to download onto my phone and use that to apply the latest OS. Can anyone provide me a link to the latest stable OS for the Droid 1? Alternatively, does anyone have a link or instructions I can follow on installing the latest OS?

    You can perform the update. If you are using sprecovery, you can allow update.zip, then install update.zip.

    You can also install Pete's odexed or deodexed froyo 2.2.2 ROM at www.peteralfonso.com

    Xperiencing similar problems...Plz Advize

    Followed same post D1-root or unroot regardless of OS. Was rooted and running Sapphire for the longest. But, wanted fresh start, so, decided to flash FRG83G sbf file and revert back to stock, using this threads' procedures. Successfully installed Sbf recovery file (provided within thread)....however, my phone is rejecting the final prescribed 'update.zip' provided. Have validated this rejection is not due to an issue of file ext duplication.

    Any suggestions welcomed. Just want to get rooted and start doing backups.

    Thanks in advance, for anyone's help.

    Are you flashing the sprecovery sbf file first?

    Just re-activated. Surprised to see alot of old stuff still on SDcard. I guess I expected MIUI and other pirate stuff to be gone too..like, a clean SDcard, straight from the factory. Just got your 2nd response. Thanks much. I love this place!!!!:icon_ banana:

    Back, again. Same problem. Successfully installed the sbf recovery file. But, unable to install the update.zip. Message: Installation aborted.
    "Can't Mount Sdcard/update.zip

    I've validated 'Mount Options' in recovery program, per FAQ troubleshooting as well as changing over to a different USB port. I just don't understand. File extensions permissions are lifted to show file types. Haven't duplicated zip.zip.

    Frustrating. Any ideas warmly welcomed.

    sbf recovery file is being loaded first, per directions.

    Thanks!

    Reseated card. Problem remains. Is there another update.zip I might be able to substitute that might work? Could there be a conflict from the sbf file I initially flashed to gain stock config, and it being FRG83G?

    I trust the file since I dl'd it off Pete's site. I dunno....:unsure:

    Thanks again, Guidot, for hanging in there with me.

    I went over to RaidZero's and dl'd his sbf recovery. Flashed it, and then attempted to install MotoCache's update.zip (still on my SDcard).

    Everything installed with the same swiftness and ease as a hot knife thru butter!

    I can't explain it. But, I've got SuperUser now. :icon_ banana:

    I really appreciate all the work all of you do here on the forum. You guys are great. I don't know why one worked and the other didn't. I'm just grateful to have this forum as a resource.

    Thanks again!
