    I have the original 2.1 release from Sprint. I rooted and have not yet disabled the update function. A couple of times I have got pop up notices that an update is available and I just cancel and go about my business. Today I got a notice theat "2" updates were available. I have been searching, but not seen any referance to this. Anyone have an idea on what this other update is?

    I suspect the notifications you see are not software/firmware update(s) from sprint. You are probably being notified that updates are available in the 'market' for your apps.

    No, I am used to the app updates. This was different. I have it disabled now anyway, but I am still curious. Obviously there has been no firmware update. I guess it will just go down as a UAO "Unidentified Android Object" :)

    .6 is a security patch that also happens to close root access.

    .7 is rumored as bug fixes, though I haver not seen a changelog.

    I've only seen posts about it here on the forums (I'm rooted...) and if the forums weren't going turtle speed this morning I'd find the thread I saw on it for you. :)

    Well.... reading through the past few pages I'm not sure what I saw that made me think there was a second OTA....

    Since I'm rooted, I'll just shut up now :(

    Question: it is still possible to root with .6, correct? DW accepted, and, while she may never root, you never know.

    I thought .6 made it harder, but not impossible.

    From what I know you cannot root on .6, you would have to reload the 2.1 update to revert back to .5 and then you could root again
