    I read that if you do not wait for the notification, and do the manual update for the Droid , that you will have to manually update/install all future updates, negating your auto-updating in the future. I am not sure how that would work, so I am wondering if any Droid wizards know why or why not.

    If that is true, are there any other hazards to doing this?

    Thanks

    It's nonsense. The update is the exact same one that Verizon is pushing out. There is no difference.

    I've done many updates on Blackberry and while the process is different the idea behind the update is the same.

    Indeed.

    Think of it this way... you have the update installed (2.0.1)... VZW/Google 'pushes' the update to your device... the update is the same as the device firmware so the update doesn't take place...
    ... a month from now let's say an update is 'pushed' out (2.0.2), hypothetically. When this update is pushed to your device it will be NEWER than the firmware on the device so it will automatically update...

    no hazards that i know of. I haven't heard of anyone's phone being bricked from the manual update since it is the same update. You just happen to get it earlier than planned. I'm sure when "2.0.2" comes out OTA, someone will put up a manual update again.

    ^ it would be a nod to his site (traffic and attention it draws) if we started seeing articles for 2.0.2 popping up on the internet. HAHA

    Well, even if you can't auto update later....you knew enough to auto update this time so chances are you'll be all over the next update as well. :)
