    I got the update this morning. I can't re-root my phone now. Anyone have any suggestions?

    I wouldn't try, the latest Droid updates, have been blocking SBF, resulting in a bricked phone

    Trying right now - fingers crossed that I can indeed SBF.

    EDIT: Yup, stuck at bootloader. Brickosaurus. Going to the VZW store now.


    IF YOU HAVE APPLIED THE UPDATE, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SBF!!
    You will brick your phone, kinda like I just did.

    Well, that's unfortunate as I've already accepted the OTA. I'm glad I have an upgrade this month.

    Sometimes the purpose of your (my) life is merely to serve as a warning to others.


    I just got home from the VZW store and the nice folks down there tried everything, including (what I assume was) SBFing using some special in-house tech. No dice. They are overnighting me a refurbished D3, which will be here Wednesday. I'm thankful I paid up my phone insurance.

    Moment of silence for my D2. Goodnight sweet prince :(

    I came on here looking for answers, and this one is the best one. I've got a rooted Droid 2 and wanted to keep my root (screenshots of my phone are essential!). I got the notice to update last night, but was skeptical because I updating usually kills root. I found this forum, did what was instructed above, and it works. I was able to update and keep my root. Thanks a lot guys!!! Thank you thank you thank you!

    I just want to also confirm that this does work. My process was:

    1. Change file extension of all the apk's I turned off by renaming them when i rooted back to have .apk file extensions (ie, blockbuster.off changed back to blockbuster.apk)
    2. Download and install OTA Rootkeeper
    3. Backup root with OTA Rootkeeper
    4. Take OTA update, let phone reboot
    5. After rebooting with the OTA applied, restored root with OTA Rootkeeper
    6. Change all apk's i don't want back to a .off file extension
    7. rebooted the phone just to make sure everything stayed, and it's good
