    they may have just resigned the sbfs with a new private code... our sbfs would no longer work because of a mismatch...

    I am getting a "FRU" or "Certified Like New" phone delivered tomorrow. I was going to unroot this Droid tonight anyway. Should I possibly be the guinea pig?

    This is starting to sound like a game of Chutes and Ladders. If you are on stock 2.1update2 and want to root you take the advance update pak to 2.2 where you can sbf to 2.1.5 android and from there you can jump ahead to 3.0 and flash the sprecovery that has been hacked in the future. This will allow you to flash back to 2.1update1 and apply that sprecovery that lets you flash any rom you want. To get back to stock you need to flash further back in the past by applying the update.zip to get you to stock 2.01

    No wonder Hookbill is done rooting:)

    i'm curious as to why no one can test this. i wouldn't know what i was looking for exactly, but can't you backup everything using titanium backup, install the update, and use clockworkmod (or whatever you use for recovery) to reflash your old ROM if there was any problems?

    just my 2 cents i suppose.
