    Should I Update to 2.2.3??

    Somehow 2.2.3 got downloaded (but NOT installed!) on my (rooted) 3G (32B) with 2.2.1. Questions:
    1. Would an install un-root it? If so, can 2.2.3 be "easily" rooted?
    2. If I decide not to install, how can I get rid of the download and get it to quit annoying me to install?
    Thanks!

    Yes it would break root. All OTA updates break root. Do you have a custom recovery installed? If so it willl stop the install, but you will still be nagged every time it downloads again.

    The update may be rooted, but I am unfamiliar with the phone and can't say for sure.

    It is safe to assume that this was not sent from a computer that doesn't fit in my hand.

    Furry: Thanks. Is there some way, then, that I can get rid of the download and delete the "app" that periodically bugs me to install? I have root... L.

    No way to delete the app. It's built into the stock ROM.

    Is your device unlocked so that you can either install ClockworkMod Recovery or a custom ROM?

    How did you root it in the first place?

    Furry: I used superOneClick v.1.9.5 to root; it worked great. I installed ClockworkMod and made a backup (stored on my desktop machine). I also backed up with Titanium. (All of this was done months ago; I've been learning Eclipse/Android/Java since then; thus the backup is a little fuzzy...) L.

    Should be able to put a custom ROM on it if any exist for your phone. Have you considered this option? Even if you just flashed a rooted stock ROM, they usually have the update notification removed -- and there may be one that would be updated anyway.

    Furry: Thank you! I had to try three different ROMs before I found one that would boot, but "ginger yoshi 1.5" did the trick, and I like it so far!
    Sooo, I think the problem is solved. (I presume future updates from T-Mobile will NOT be forthcoming!) L

    You are correct!

    A custom ROM will block any and all updates. Keep an eye out for updates to your ROM, though!
