    I was using a few dif roms and switching then with all the hype of 2.1 I went back to stock no busy box no su and unrooted. Is there a way to check if I unblocked the ota? Sorry if its a dumb ? But I'm jw. Thanks

    I think if you're back to the stock recovery then you'll get the OTA updates. It was my understanding that it was the custom recovery (sprecovery) that blocked OTA updates, so if you are running stock, you should get them.

    Thank, Yeah, I was using nexus droid rom and I had sprecovery, then I used un root no busybox no su, and then did a factory wipe, ninjas gone and my rooted apps don't work, and when I boot in recovery, or w.e. X and power, it dosent say sprecovery... but I was j.w if there was a OTA test. Thanks

    I think there is an OTA update going around, but I don't think it's 2.1 yet. I heard it's some sort of maintenance update, just fixes and speedups I assume.

    yeah, that 'update' unroots, and defaults your phone back out. I know first hand. Stay away from it......away as far as you can! lol.
