    I've heard the FRG83D OTA update will unroot your phone if you accept it. I saw someone post that it did so even with Clockwork recovery installed.. If I'm understanding correctly..If you flash a custom ROM with FRG83D, you will keep root? And if this is true, does anyone know if there will be a UD ROM with FRG83D? OR....... What can I do to keep root and my current rom?





    Thanks in advance.

    i believe the last 3? versions of ud have been based off of 2.2.1 which is frblahblahblah

    and where are you reading that a software update of a few mb somehow flashes your phone back to stock....wherever it is you should probably stop frequenting that site/thread.

    Nope it won't work. 2.4 is based off of FRG22D. So by flashing FRG83D, then going BACK to UD 2.4, you're flashing back to FRG22D again.

    I thought the point of going to the FRG83D deodexed build by manually updating, was to avoid the OTA Update from verizon which will unroot your phone...I don't want to lose root..and this is the only method i've seen that will help you keep it...unless you accept the ota update..and then go thru the whole process of rooting your phone again..the long way. The rooting apps wont work for FRG83D anymore.

    How do they keep Clockwork from blocking it. That makes no sense to me.

    I don't that it's true about fr83d being only for incredible, x etc because other droid 1 users non-rooted phones have received the push for the update. Besides, this update is not a major update (eg ginderbread) it's just tweaking gmail, corporate exchange, etc. So no biggie. If you're rooted most of these updates are already or about to be incorporated into existing roms.
    Besides most roms already have a blocking mechanism in place to stop verizon from bugging about ota. I don't think clockwork has anything to do with it.

    My phone has been nagging me to update since last night. I'm running a stock but rooted 2.2 ROM. Is this just an upgrade for a few apps and therefore safe, or will it unroot me?

    I know there's a line in one of the system files that can be modified by Root Explorer which tells VZ to leave the phone alone because it already is running the latest release. Can someone tell me the filename?

    Thanks!

    Edit: Just did a search and found that metiCKOne has a new ROM out...maybe I'll just go that route. However, I'd still like to know where that file is. Thanks.

    Edit 2: Disregard, found it: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/bugless/104781-android-2-2-1-stop-ota-patch.html

    Installed metiCKOne's stockish FRG83D ROM...problem solved :)

    I remember that one of UD's roms was FRG83d, but since my memory is not that great I don't remember which one....might have been 2.0 not going to flash everyone to find out so there..............

    That's not correct, I have a D1 and it has FRG83D from the update yesterday.
