    My phone is currently rooted, using SuperOneClick 1.5.5, and is currently running 2.2.1 of Android.

    This morning, I awoke to a System Update Available notification for FRG83G, which I gather is 2.2.2.

    Am I safe to accept this update, or should I get ahold of a "rooted" version of 2.2.2?

    Since there are no answers as of yet, I'm gonna do the same as you.

    Unroot, accept the update & reroot with superoneclick

    I gotta wait until I get home. Somehow I left my laptop home and can't download superoneclick on my work PC due to company downloading policy.

    The rerooting worked! But I didn't use superoneclick.

    I accepted the update while still rooted. After the update was installed, I used soup_or_root to reroot. It worked on the first try.
