Haven't Gotten 2.2; Impatient or Rooted?

    Maybe I'm just impatient, but I bought my Droid from eBay--used--a couple of months ago. I'm wondering if the previous owner rooted it, if that would affect me getting the OTA 2.2 update? It says I have 2.1-update1 installed right now.

    Does being rooted make a difference? How can I tell if my phone's been rooted? Thanks!

    Most likely you just havent gotten it yet. It actually appears they have stopped the OTA and are going to be starting a new one next week.

    If you wanna know if you are rooted
    turn off the phone then Hold X while powering on the phone.
    do you see a triangle with an !. If you do you are stock if you see something that Says clockworkmod or SPRecovery you are rooted.
