I hate being a newbee. So let me get this straight I can root my stock phone that already has 2.1 on it. all of the instructions I have read refer to only rooting 2.0 phones. So, before you bash me, yes I know there as search function on this site, but as of now I'm at the stage where I know even know the questions to ask because all of you are speaking some different language. Thanks in advance and waiting for the shots to be fired.
As of this writing, the is not a process to allows you to root a phone that has VZW's 2.1. Hopefully, that will change. Therefore, if you want to root you need to replace the 2.1 firmware with the 2.0.1 firmware. Once you have 2.0.1 you can root your phone and install a 2.1 rom.
Hope you find this helpful.
Thanks mike i think i'll stick with 2.1 for now. The only feature I was interested in was wireless feathering. As help forums go this site is the best I've come across. My problem now is Im at the stage where I don't know what I don't know.
I understand your situation. I think you should begin searching reading the threads. There is a lot of info on Youtube, also. When you have a question post it or send me a PM.
