    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.

    Users who have rooted, but are not using SPRecovery should take extreme care, as this update contains a complete /system image, which means that it will not break the way the previous one did; it will simply erase /system and flash a complete image.

    as an FYI if you already have SPRecovery flashed, you can safely accept the update as you did with the ESE81 update.

    So, with clockwork or sprecovery you should be all set. Those with totally stock phones will be unable to use RSD lite to flash the current sbf file that replaces boot-recovery with sprecovery?
