    After you flashed clockwork recovery, it will block the install. You may be prompted for it (rare chance) but even if you click install it will not actually update.

    OK, you may get notifications (I want to say you will b/c of the fact that you are not running an alternate ROM that is blocking it, but it may still get blocked) but the installation will be blocked if you have a working custom recovery.

    IF YOUR RECOVERY HAS REVERTED TO THE STOCK RECOVERY, IT MAY {WILL} ALLOW THE INSTALLATION TO PROCEED.

    Now would be a good time to check your recovery.

    Then read Johns post carefully. Because he's dead on. You COULD get the download.

    Custom recovery still good. So could I unroot, wait for FRG22, after i get it root again? I used EasyRoot app. Any reasons I should or shouldn't?

    Do you not want to be root? Its the age old question

    To root or not to root......

    Technically, unrooting won't necessarily allow the update to occur - you'll still need to flash the stock recovery back onto your phone.

    Or, you could wait for the update to appear, then manually apply it with your custom recovery. However, I am not 100% sure that would work (in theory, it *should* - but after that you'd be at stock FRG22D, after which you could root again).

    Ok, I went from a rooted Droid w/ the first update on it and flashed the second, I can't believe I forgot to go back to stock. Anyways, I thought easy root or universal androot would be able to fix my problem. This was NOT the case, I now have the su app, no su permissions, and both the rooting apps say I'm rooted already and fail at unrooting. My only option is RSD lite. So, I'm gonna state the obvious, do not attempt flashing the update unless you are at stock!

    RSD Lite is not the only option. I suggest using the Droid 2 root method.

    Droid 2

    Theres only a little addition to the directions to make them work for the Droid 1.

    After the second time you do ADB Devices then go into ADB shell like the directions say and do the following

    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system

    then exit and follow the rest of the directions
