    I know I'm new but lets get straight to it.

    NIOTE: This can be done with any build.prop!!

    You need to be rooted (obviously)


    You are going to need Root Explorer [You can buy this or you can get this from Applanet (Install0us for Droid) and download it there.]
    I AM NOT ENCOURAGING PIRACY AND I TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR ACTIONS


    You need to navigate to /system/ and then click Mount R/W. Then go to build.prop and click and hold until the menu pops up. Scroll down to Text editor and click that.

    Now you need to scroll down until you find this. This is an example using 2.2 Froyo.
    And you will need to change it to this.
    Then you will also need to change the line above this to the equivalent.
    For example.
    To this.



    And thats all! You are officially OTA Free! dancedroid

    The new update for the droid 1 came out this week, does this fix work for the new 2.2.1 update? The new one is frg830 I believe

    No, the information in the build.prop is for FRG22D, you would need to use the build.prop information for FRG83D (though the instructions will be the same, the fingerprint info and such will be different).

    and

    ro.build.description=voles-user 2.2.1 FRG83D 75603 release-keys
