    How long it too the devs to figure out how to root 2.0.1? I'm just curious.

    Zero time at all.

    Mainly because the 2.0 root exploit worked for 2.0.1.

    :D

    They patched the method previously used. sbf back to 2.0.1 and update with the rooted 2.1 update.zip. No, it doesn't work from 2.1.

    Damn, I'm kind of regretting unrooting and going to 2.1, but I only did it for stability purposes, so far I am impressed, but I miss custom themes, and root explorer, and overclocking of course.

    I'm debating trying that sbf flash back to 2.0.1, but I fear for my phones life. And if it's not going to be long until 2.1 is rooted, I can wait.

    Look how long it took to root the Eris. It can be quick, or slow and painful.

    Yeah, seems like it took the Eris forever.

    Ya, but the eris really doesn't have the backing or potential of the droid, so not as many people worked on it.

    Champers, I noticed another thread you made, that you rooted your 2.1? Not the stock one though, right?
