    go to DroidMod - Everything Droid doesn't, DroidMod does. and download the DroidMod Updater 11.

    This will root and unroot for you the fast and easy way as long as you are on 2.0.1 now

    download the apk on your phone then install the updated and the rest should self explanatory.

    I believe the the droidmod updated puts sp recovery on for you, then download rom manager from market once you are rooted. You will be able to use rom manager to flash to clockwork and then install any rom you want.

    You do realize how old that video is right? He was talking about the 2.1 OTA update not even being released yet. Were you able to get your phone back to out of the box stock?

    when I SPR back to 2.0.1 and turned on the phone, it didn't push the OTA-- Just do a manual update-- DL the 2.1 .zip, rename to update.zip, apply and magic!

    Didn't you make a nandroid backup before doing this whole process that you can just revert to 2.1? Or would that give you root again?
