So basically, you can power your phone using the USB cord. Haha yea... I remember now. I'm so impatient for this update.

"The OTA will not be in the root of the memory card, this is not like a manual update. All OTA updates are, and have always been stashed in /cache/.

After you download the update (assuming you are rooted) do this in terminal emulator "ls /cache/" and you will see a file ending in .zip.

From their run this "cp /cache/<whatever the zip's filename was>.zip /sdcard/"

Mount the sdcard, copy over the update.zip, post it here and hello 2.1..."

I didn't get the update or anything, but just to learn a few things, what if you're not rooted? How would do copy the update.zip file?

You cant, thats why they always put it there. So normal users cant leak it. While rooted users can access it.

No, you boot without your SD card and battery, on usb power, then put your sd card in and then your battery and you should be good to go for bypassing the update

But if you were running a rom with a stock kernel you would receive the ota. You guys got to have one laying around here somewhere. If you get the notification and your rooted just do what I said and you all got 2.1...

WTF. So basically, we have no answer here. I did some poking around. I found the cache folder using Astro file manager. Lets say the OTA update is download on to that. Is there anyway, to move it?

If the update zip is actually in /cache/ and not /sdcard/ then it won't matter if you take the sd card out because it's stored on the phone's memory and not the sd card. I can't confirm if it's actually stored in /cache/ but that's what HandlerExploit said.

If you follow the commands in my post you can clearly see that it moves the ota update to your sdcard... so you have easy access to it after you mount your sdcard.

I do have a SD card converter thing..... Can't recall what it is. Basically I can move the update.zip file (If i have one....) without even putting in my phone at all.

If you aren't rooted, you can use adb to pull the file.

If you are rooted, supposedly this will allow you to receive the OTA update http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-droid/58088-how-re-enable-ota-updates-your-custom-rom.html

Although you would NOT want to apply the update of course.

I've moved the otacerts.zip and if I get the update (which I haven't and probably won't any time soon) I plan to download and then when it restarts, boot into recovery and pull the file with ADB and then recover to nandroid backup so it doesn't install.

Unless the boot.img's ramdisk is set to secure=0 (ROOTED) they cannot pull the ota update. You must do it on a rooted device.

dang, i was thinking if I stayed up until 3am ET, I'd have this update.zip by now. Verizon should target first round updates to people who understand how to get files off of their Droid.

We have a 2.1 download link and update.zip!

I'll post the OTA update.zip momentarily on alldroid. The thread is already created: 2.1 download link, credit to ugot2go123 on androidforums

Happy downloading to devs and to those that want 2.1 without root.

Where does the zip file need to be placed on the SD card and what is the procedure to install it? Sorry if this has been discussed but could not find it.

Yes, rename to update.zip and place in the root of /sdcard

Then reboot to recovery and install (note that you will lose root access, as we do not have a known root exploit for this yet once installed).

We do have a way to root it for those that do not install the update, but not a way to root once installed.

So what do we do if we don't have an /sdcard or /cache? I've never done anything like this but I'm somewhat comp savvy. Just not with phones or Android.

Any help appreciated!

All I get is this

--Install from sdcard...
Finding update package..
Opening update package..
Verifying..
E:failed to open /sdcard/update.zip (NO such file or directory) Even though I downloaded it, renamed it update.zip and stuck it on the phone

E:Signature verification failed..
Aborted.

Did it mess up your droid or just not let you install it?
