    Not sure about using sfb with the 2.3.20 update.
    You haven't removed any bloatware have you? You need all software that came with the phone to revert back to stock through sfb or it will fail.
    Chances of you getting a D2G are very unlikely. Sorry

    That's not quite right. You can return to stock minus the bloat ware. In the Market you will find an app called z4Root. Install this and it will give you the choice of going back to stock or redoing the root you already have. It's free.

    Now what will happen is if an update comes through you will need to recover those files in order to update. And fwiw the SBF does work with D2 as well.

    I'm sorry I was thinking about updating. You have to have all the bloatware apps installed to update to another version if remember correctly. Other wise the update will fail. You don't need them to return to stock though.
    Thanks hook. :)
