    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?

    Please contact me if you have recieved this update and applied it. Or still have it nagging you, that would be great so I can pull it.

    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.

    -Had stock Droid1 w/ FRG83D rooted by Superoneclick v1.7 (straight from shortfuse.org)
    -Got notification of OTA FRG83G update this morning
    -Unrooted with Superoneclick v1.7 without a problem
    -Restarted phone and got notification for OTA again. I hit "install now", phone rebooted, phone showing Android v2.2.2/FRG83G in "Settings/About phone".
    -Rooted again with Superoneclick v1.7 without a problem
    -Rebooted and verified that Wireless Tether works (it does)
    -I don't really notice any speed difference (good or bad)

    ...actually I take that last statement back. It seems going back to homescreen is a bit quicker now.

    Accepted and re-rooted using superoneclick

    I woke up to the OTA update notice today. I was searching all over to see what the word was about accepting it and breaking root / re-rooting. After reading this thread, I accepted the update without unrooting and then re-rooted using superoneclick. All is fine and I'm rocking 2.2.2 update. This is my first post. I've been lurking here and have learned a lot and I thought I'd share this for anyone else out there in the same boat.

    OG Droid, unlocked, stock and overclocked.

    I did the same thing. Accepted the update WITHOUT unrooting, then re-rooted with SuperOneClick v1.7. No problems at all.

    I had a manually rooted OG Droid. After a week of clicking "Install Later" I finally accepted the update today and after it rebooted I'm still on 83D and it's stopped nagging me. I'm still rooted also.

    What's going on ?
