    Hi, love everything you guys do on this site. Made getting a droid worth it!

    I installed a froyo rom at the beginner of the summer and it's been working so well, I haven't even followed up for any updates/upgrades.

    My brother informed me today he got offical 2.2 via OTA.

    I tried to look around here for some info, afraid I got confused.

    Should I try to get the OTA update? and what would be the best way to do that? (As in not losing all data on my phone)

    Also can I root 2.2? I really like the OC and Wifi tether.

    Here is what it says under phone info:
    Baseband: C_01.3E.03P
    Kernel: 2.6.32.9-P3Droids pierce@MyDroidWorld #14
    Build number: voles-userdebug 2.2 FRFxx 33333 test-keys

    Thank you all so much.

    thats not the official build. if you want the official update that will mean loosing root. as of right now im not to sure whats going on. there was a update that was official then it was pulled and changed. its probably best to wait it out. plus roms are better than official builds anyway.

    It is out. I actually got the notification on Saturday, push is supposed to go on until Wednesday, IIRC. Official is FRG01B, what the OP is running is the p3droid leak of FRG01B with the market fix applied. That's why the version info is screwy.

    Supposedly, there is supposed to be a 2nd push immediately following this one, the 2nd one is said to enable Flash downloading via the market. I don't know how true it is, but it supposedly came from a VZW email to some of their Droid-using corporate customers.

    Yes, as the other poster said, the version info I posted is is the leaked version.

    So there is no current rooted Official 2.2 yet, and I should just wait it, is what I'm hearing.


    Thank you both for your help.
