    I did a search and I came up with some vague answers to a few of my ota 2.2 update questions.

    Background: DX rooted with the 1-click alldroid method, custom theme, launcherpro, and I currently have left all bloatware on my device. I have a few root applications such as wifi tether and titanium backup.

    Questions:

    1) If I unroot using the one click method will I be albe to recieve the OTA 2.2 update? If so, will it install?

    2) (Assuming #1 is doable) Once the update begins its rollout, will I be able to recieve the update immediately upon unrooting?

    3) If 2.2 installs, will the current one-click alldroid root method still work?

    Thanks for the help.

    3) 2.2 is rooted it just hasn't been released yet.
    1+2) its the type of thing where we are not there yet so no one can absolutely know for sure

    I didn't want to start a new thread, so maybe someone can answer my question here :)

    Suppose I don't want to use the sbf to get back to stock 2.1 for the ota. Will there be a method like the unofficial 2.2 where we boot into recovery and use a update.zip type of thing, except for the updated official 2.2?

    Yes and if your rooted and have recovery its the preferred method. That way we don't upgrade until it's been fixed up so it doesn't break root and recovery. Then it is released by developer and you then flash it with recovery.

    BTW
    Bird tweeted we should have something soon to flash. I think he's working on Vanilla froyo.
