    Just purchased, safe to update?

    I'm coming from rooted Moto Droid and rooted Droid Inc. Just bought my Charge, and my question is, am I safe to accept this system update? I know that with my original droid you had to downgrade an update to be able to get root,

    Thanks

    Hey boss, I've read that ED2 is impossible to root, but I haven't encountered
    that update yet. In fact the only update I've been notified of is:

    i510.EE4

    So, it is safe to update to the file I mentioned, and that you're currently on: EE4, right?

    Personally I'd like to root, have a voodoo lagfix, with clockworkmod and gummy charged,
    but still apprehensive about rooting. Moto Droid 1 was cake.

    yes im on EE4, you saw the pic right?
    i cant positively say what update is waiting on your phone, the last one is EE4 that i know and yes it can be rooted + cwm. one thing about cwm, you cant do backups with it and some kernels have that option removed for safety. either way, dont try it. all other features work fine.

    My bad if I wasn't clear in my other post but the update is EE4 that
    was waiting...so I updated to it, and already the phone is noticeably faster, and the web browser renders much faster.

    I've disabled the lock screen using those secret codes
    you input into the dialer and unfortunately I've read about CWR
    not fully working (hence the new yellow version) without the option to backup full ROMS...

    I feel all newbish again not knowing exactly what to do!

    I read this thread here:
    [HOW-TO] Get a rooted version of EE4 - xda-developers


    Does that sound right?
    Thanks again.

    everything is here {List} Roms/Kernels/Mods/Themes 6.29.11 - xda-developers including tutorials
    i prefer the danalo version its all in one, if you dont like the rom later you can flash over it easy and still have lagfix and root, there in the kernel
