    Not 100% sure, bit I read in various places the OTA update won't work after root. You can un-root & try updating, then root again (I would try the moto software updater by going through their website on a PC). Just search un-root.

    Or you could try updating manually with a choice of roms, some custom, some Gingerbread (CM7) but it takes a bit of reading & download a few files.

    Motorola Defy - XDA-Developers

    Be aware you can't downgrade from some roms (for warranty, etc...) so maybe you might want to try un-rooting / updating it first.

    My rooted Defy updated without any trouble. And then I used Gingerbreak to re-root Froyo. Much easier and faster than Superoneclick.
