    I am currently rooted and running 2.0.1. My big concern is what will happen when 2.1 is released and pushed to our droids ota. I have heard some say that 2.1 will just over write 2.0.1 even if you are rooted with su permissions. I just want to verify that if I were to get a 2.1 update ota it wouldn't mess up my droid.

    I wouldn't worry too much. Most likely the developers out there will release a stable 2.1 (via update.zip technique) well before the general release through Verizon. There will be instructions on how to install from multiple versions.

    You will lose root if you accept the update, that is almost a guarantee. If you have flashed a custom ROM then your all set, or if your running 2.0.1 you can rename otacerts.zip to otacerts.bak.
