    2.1 update + rooted 2.1 update

    Hello all,

    The following is an unsigned 2.1 update with the recovery image removed. This will allow you to upgrade to 2.1 and keep your current recovery image. To use this, reboot into recovery mode, choose install and then install update.zip.

    Next is a rooted nandroid backup of 2.1. It has busybox and adb enabled by default. This version does not include the baseband like the top version.

    This worked for me using sprecovery. Make sure you choose allow update.zip installation before choosing to install (depricated).

    The update.zip requires you to have stock 2.0.1. It is meant only to update ESD56 to ESE81. It will check for various parts of it before patching and fail if they are not found.

    How do you root ESE81? Is there a way to use the nandroid backup without losing all your data?

    Just to clarify but will this patch a rooted 2.01 to rooted 2.1 or should I revert back to unrooted 2.01 and then patch to 2.1 rooted?

    For the update.zip, you need unrooted 2.0.1 (stock boot image and system image). It will check what you have before patching and fail if it is not stock 2.0.1. It is only meant to update ESD56 to ESE81 without touching the recovery image. The nandroid backup contains a rooted 2.1 version that you can use regardless of boot image or system image that you have installed.

    The nandroid backup does not wipe data. I usually wipe though. I think you might have to if you are coming from 2.0.1.

    What error message did you get? Also, post a screenshot if you can. I've just restored back to stock and then restored again with the nandroid backup and it worked fine.
