    I had to install the RUU because I was rooted and the ota put me in a bootloop. If you took the ota you in theory (because the RUU is the same file) can use revolutionary to root your phone.

    Did you see my screenshots? I'm running 2.3.4 just like anyone who took the ota, no downgrade at all.

    At first I didn't think this would work... then I got through it incredibly quickly.

    Wow! That was easy! Its rebooting now. Hopefully its all good when it gets up and running.

    i have everything downloaded as well as watching the video, however when i get to the part where it says "zerging root...this may take a minute" it keeps saying cannot find root press any key to exit. I have all the drivers and everything installed. Kinda frustrating because i'm not a "noob" per say.
