I just followed your proceedure and it worked perfectly. I had the OTA FRG22 update with no root, and now I'm rooted again! BTW, my PC has Win 7 64-bit, and I ran into NONE of the potential problems you mention.
Now, do I flash Cyanogenmod? or wait. Hmmmm.
It will overwrite everything except your personal data, basically, so yes.
Thank you for your information and patience. I have been lurking for a few months and appreciate your information as well as tolerance to folks like me looking for the answers we need to get done what we want to do.
Moto...your guide got me rooted. I love the link added to your sig about 'how to ask questions the smart way' ... I'm not a hacker, mebbe a power user at best. But I did learn over a decade ago how to work within those that have the knowledge, and this is a great reminder.
Both of you have saved me personal and public embarrassment with your posts, and more than a couple of handfuls of hair...
"...definitely have to be back in two hours."
Fingers to Phone to . . .

only problem i have is when i downloaded this theme from :
REVOlution DROID 1.2r1
the "REVOlution_all_sense" download and i put it as"update.zip" on the root of my phone and i boot my phone into the bootloader and i tell it to get the rom from the sd it says E: no tar file found. And then i try to install it it always aborts....
is there any way you can help me with that
hockeykid949 - I haven't installed any ROM's yet, but if you're trying to install an update.zip file shouldn't you be doing it from SPRecovery and not the bootloader?
(Or ClockworkRecovery if that's what you're using)
