    Am still running Simply Stunning 3.2 on my moto droid. It is a 2.1 ROM. Do I need to do an OTA update before installing a 2.2 ROM. Or can I just update the ROM and bypass the OTA. Am running SPrecovery. Also I have disabled OTA updates. So if I do need to go that direction, how do I reactivate it in order to recieve the OTA update? Please, need to update, am dying to get onto Froyo!

    Do a backup, 2-3x wipe on system and data, then install the new ROM. Should work fine.

    Okay, now that Easy Root has been pulled from the market, is it possible to root using the RSDLite method we used under 2.1? I'm guessing so, but I don't want to tell anyone to go ahead and use that method if it's not going to take. Thanks!

    From what I have read, you can root 2.2 using the same method as 2.1 - though in another thread is did ask for a link to EasyRoot. I will let you know if I obtain a copy.

    Thanks. The only problem is it's a paid app and asking for it or offering links to download it will can get you banned if a Mod catches you.

    Ah! I was not aware it was a paid app. I wonder if the developer has an alternative distribution method that would still allow payment.

    1. Use the same process described in the sticky thread of rooting 2.1 (RSDlite +SBF).

    2. Install one of the various FRG01B rooted ROMs.
