Can't guarantee you the same result, but there's at least one data point for you.
Thanks, but did you have a Bootstrapper like Droid 2 Bootstrapper or ClockWork Mod Recovery installed on your phone before you installed the OTA update? If you didn't I bet that is why the update went ok. I'm not positive about this and I'm posting this comment so more people can identify, but I think failure to update the OTA on a rooted Froyo may be caused by having a bootstrapper installed. That is what I'm trying to determine before I pull the trigger on mine
