    just trying to get a feel , bc im on the fence about going back to stock now that berzerker has posted an oh-so-easy thread on how to do so.
    here are my worries.
    1. if i dont un-root seeing what posting the 2.0.1 that google did, and everyone rooting it. im afraid the 2.1 will only be via OTA. (is this a just cause for concern?)
    2. if i do un root, ill loose milestone browser, the pinch and zoom is just so much smoother than dolphin.
    3.what if my phone was already scheduled for patch and i missed it bc of root.

    are these valid reasons? or should i just take the plunge and get all sorts of ready for 2.1?
    give me some insight, plz and thx

    I'm staying rooted as well, I know somebody out there will make a rom for root with all of the updates in it. I am not gonna risk loosing root.

    i'm rooted, but i'm a little lost. i want to stay rooted, but i also want to stay (for now) on the stock firmwares (no roms yet (until i need to)). so if i keep root there will be an update file that i can install right? and with that update file, will i be back on track to get ota's?

    good question, if i did decide to let 2.1 patch in, what would be easiest way to let OTA back in? not that i def will but someone should answer this guy as it may help others

    to say what i know i blv this patch dumps root, so be carefull what u say yes to if u want to keep root, dont want OTAS? flash new SPRecovery

    I am going to wait, for now. I have confidence that our colleagues will not have to wait too long for a rooted 2.1 update to show up on the boards.

    I personally unrooted yesterday

    I, like you, only wish to be on stock firmware, I was rooted for tether and overclock

    I figure when the ota 2.1 rolls around I will update smoothly and then wait and see what happens from there, if I loose root it will probably only be for a couple weeks max cuz I feel like it'll be high priority for a lot of devs but if not then root wasn't the hugest deal for me anyway, I guess it just boils down to personally preference, I would perfer 2.1 smooth and as quickly as possible over rooting, just my opinion though

    That really only concerns people who are rooted and don't have ota's blocked which should only be a handful of people
