    received my replacement phone and want to go back to root. Shouldn't it be as easy as renaming the correct file to update.zip and applying it?

    If anyone can send me a link to the file, it would be most appreciated.

    Thanks,

    MarkO, what you ask can no longer be done (just applying an 'update.zip' file), as I think you are pretty much referring to the way the phone was rooted right after the 2.0.1 update.

    But I will confirm that Abe's second link is the way to go.

    good luck
