First off, sorry, I have to assume this has been asked already, but I as many others out there, are completely new to the Droid world, and even more so to rooting.
With 2.2 due out next month, correct me if I'm wrong, but if you want to update to the official OTA 2.2 release, you'd have to unroot to get this update; thus rendering the root useless right? If so and I'm not misinterpreting this, do we then need to wait for the ability to root on 2.2, or will it be the same process over again, ie. can one go through the same root process on 2.2 that one did on 2.1?
Side note, going to 2.2 ... do all apps/settings/etc. remain preserved? Same question goes for rooting ... I guess I'm just wondering If I need to look into any backup software or anything.
Thanks in advance and again sorry If I'm re-posting something that everyone else has been asking.
