    Z4root still works (though may require a reboot if it hangs).

    Another plug for z4root. It did hang but like another poster said a simple reboot fixed it right up.

    I upgraded two nights ago to .340 and used z4root to re-root the phone with no problem. Worked first time like a charm.dancedroid

    What ROMs work on the new updates? Or do they all still work?
