still root your phone and put any ROM on via SPrecovery?
You can do anything, remember... Droid Does. :
Wait, so it does not matter? you can install any ROM even with Froyo 2.2 (45.2MB) update?
Yes, you will need to flash the "special" .sfb file with RSDlite.

Follow the RSDLite and SPRecovery installation steps. Then perform a Nandroid backup before installing a rooted ROM.
Has anyone saved the original 45.2MB file from VZW?
If you perform a nandroid backup, you will preserve your phone in its current state. So if you screw up anywhere post-SPRecovery installation, you will always have that backup available. There really is no need for a fresh stock ROM although YMMV.
You should also transfer that nandroid backup to your computer and keep it somewhere safe. Rename only the folder to something you will remember.
Then to get root access, just use SPRecovery to install a rooted ROM (renamed to update.zip). Where you go from there is up to you.
