So, my phone is harassing me that it wants to update to android 2.1. I keep telling it later, but obviously this will get old, very quick. I am still running rooted DM 1.0.

How can I install DM 1.1?

I am afraid, if I turn my phone off, that it will install android 2.1 and unroot with no way of going back. So how do I go about doing this?

dont quote me on this but im pretty sure that you can only get the OTA 2.1 update if you allow it to download and install, i dont think that turning off your phone would cause any problems.

Let it download and reboot. When it comes up to Sprecovery, just select 'Reboot System'. It should stop bugging you after that and will not install 2.1. This will work if you are rooted with DM 1.0.

When the update notice pops up, It says that it`s been downloaded and verified. If you turn your phone off and back on it wil start the update process. Just so people will know, there is a way to revert back. I manually installed the 2.1 update-1 as soon as i saw it posted on my never rooted Droid and was sorry i did it. So I went on a search in this forum and found the proper tools and help. Now I`m back at stock 2.0.1 with root access.

I agree with Zealous & Never, if you have DroidMod, you can ok the 2.1 update, but it will kick you into Recovery, from where you can reboot back into DroidMod, and the 2.1 will not install. However, DroidMod website says that Verizon will try to automatically install the update even if you keep saying no, even though it won't go through.

I agree also, but i really just intended to let folks know that you can go back if you screw up and install the update. Thanks for the correction. For me not being rooted, it give no choice but to update.
