    Hi everyone. I too need help with this, I got the new update request Friday night, its very annoying...I've had my droid (1) since spring but only rooted last month after 2.2 update, so I like to proceed very cautiously. :)
    I've checked in build.prop but mine is different. Exactly:

    ro.build.description=voles-user 2.2 FRG22D 50454 release-keys
    ro.build.fingerprint=verizon/voles/sholes/sholes:2.2/FRG22D/50454:user/release-keys

    Should i still use Banksy's config settings??

    Thanks for your help!

    I'm rooted, but I have the stock 2.2 ROM, so I actually *want* to apply the update... (I got root by following the instructions here: Root Droid 1 - regardless of OS version)

    I cannot find any update.zip on my SD Card -- if I could find that, I know I could boot into SPRecovery and apply the update, probably without losing my rooted status too... So where is that update.zip being stored?

    Thanks for any help you can provide...

    If you flash any OTA update you will lose root.

    OTA updates are usually not named update.zip.

    Glad I could help :)

    And if you are updating to an OTA update you will lose root :icon_eek:

    Oh ok... So if it's not named update.zip, where do I find this update (what's it called?) so I can apply it?

    Even if I do lose root, it's no big deal because I can get it back right away with the SPRecovery instructions that I linked in my previous post... I just want that update...

    Thanks...

    Nevermind -- found it. It was in the /cache folder (not on the SD card) and it's called "bede60e851bb.signed-voles-FRG83D-from-FRG22D-bede60e8.zip" Copied it to my SD-card, then to my PC, so I can play with it...

    Thanks...

    Renamed that big long .zip file to update.zip, booted the phone into the SPRecovery program, told it to install the update.zip, then rebooted. FRG83D showed up in the Build Number listing of the About Phone area in the Settings menu... So cool...

    And, yeah, I lost root like you said I would, but since the instructions on rooting are so simple that I just re-rooted, and now everything (SetCPU, Terminal Emulator, etc) is back to normal. No more annoying system-update messages because my system is now up-do-date. Woot!

    Thanks...

    All you would have to do to make the update root would be put superuser on there if I'm not mistaken :icon_eek:
