    You know... there are a few ways to gain root access right into 2.1...

    There's really not any reason to go back to 2.0.1 just to gain root...

    I've decided rooting is not for me. Not that i cant handle it, i'm just too lazy!

    I'd like to just go back to bone stock, wait for the update, and be happy with what VZW/Motorola will provide me with. And also just in case i do ever need to send it back i'd like it to be as it should be.

    All of the links are in this thread right now.

    Link 3 in my signature. Use RSD Lite to flash to stock 2.01 and if the phone doesn't update then use the link in my previous post to manually install the 2.1 update.

    There is no busybox or other root tools to uninstall. The stock 2.01 file is just that...a stock build of the phone, just like it came from the factory then.

    Correct, there are a couple of methods of rooting.

    And I can think of one good reason to go back to 2.01 to gain root and that would be that the phone got so messed up that you felt a fresh start would be better.

    In most cases a flash of the sprecovery sbf file would put you into a good position to reapply a rooted rom though.
