    I was told several times by Miami that you did NOT need to root to install this.

    What do you guys say?

    its an update.zip file, so you have to run it in sprecovery (or something else?) and i think that requires root to get.. i genuinely am not sure, i haven't had a stock droid since november, but i think any custom recovery image is a rooted only thing.. right?

    my understanding is that you WILL need rsd to get back to anything else from this.. i'm sure there will be all sorts of details here in a few minutes.

    Someone mentioned it was a release candidate for testing a few pages back. If its an actual release candidate and not a custom ROM then u shouldnt need root to install this.

    Congrats on your accomplishments to all involved!

    While I won't yet root to do this, I'm envious of those enjoying Froyo even without wifi hehehehe ....

    We'll get it yet. I'd like to believe if they can whip up a clockwork/sprecovery version, someone should be able to get it into a update.zip for the rest of us right? Or is that a pipe dream? :)
