    You can't use the regular update if you are rooted. What you will need to do is to download P3Droids FRG22.


    Droid - FRG22D, rooted, deodexed, busyboxed **Rooted Users

    I'm going to tell you that this did not work for me. I still could not see Flash in the Market and I had other apps I couldn't see either. However some have reported that it does work. It is suppose to be the same as the OTA except it will work for rooted users.

    Let me know if it works for you.

    Make sure the file is not update.zip.zip (that was my problem)

    Just rename it "update" and save as a zip file.

    Then if you don't see Flash 10.1 in the Market, clear the Market cache under the Application/Manage Applications settings and search for Flash. Should show up. It took a few minutes (and attempts) with my wife's phone, mine saw it right away. Go figure...
    Hope this helps.
