    So I started removing some bloatware from 2.2, and I noticed that a lot of files are doubles... for example..

    Vvm.apk
    Vvm.odex


    Is this suppose t be like this? I changed the .apk to .bak on the files I do not want, but in 2.1 I never saw .odex files in there before. Anyone know what this is about?

    And since you lose root after getting 2.2 now, what method can we use to re-root? Can we yet?

    I didn't lose root. If you followed the directions correctly, you are able to keep root.

    I did, I did everything, reverted all theme stuff and moved su to xbin. Am I supposed to move it back now or something?

    I also now cannot even get the drivers to install for USB Mass Storage mode or for Charge mode now...any ideas? I tried the ones from a forum and the Moto ones and none are getting rid of the yellow ! for the device in either mode....

    I did not move SU back from xbin... You no longer have the SU ninja icon? I'm not sure what to tell you. :(

    I don't think you'd be able to move the SU file anyways since you aren't rooted, you probably wont have the permissions.

    I followed this and it worked!!! Tell everyone who needs it:


    IF YOU LOST ROOT BECAUSE YOU COPIED su INSTEAD OF MOVING IT:

    Quote:
    EDIT: 1. Open terminal and make sure su exists in /system/xbin/su and run it to get a root terminal. You should see a #
    2. Run "mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/system /system"
    3. Run "cp /system/bin/su /system/bin/su.bak"
    4. Run "cd /system/bin/"
    5. Run "rm su"

    You now have root again.

    DO NOT REMOVE ANYTHING!!!!!!!!!


    Just rename them. For example rename Vvm.apk to Vvm.bak.

    And no, you can ignore the .odex file.

    You only loose root if you don't read the directions end to end. Everyone who paid attention still has root if they wanted.
