    1st - Updated my radio (unrooted) to 2.05 which works great, what I didn't know is that by doing this I can not manually update to 2.2, nor will I get the OTA :(

    2nd - I've read a lot of threads but it appears that I must now root and then unroot my phone to get the 2.2 update

    3rd - Lots of information on rooting on here and other forums that I've read, but for someone technically challenged (me) it could be a struggle. Can someone please direct me to the correct procedure/thread or drop me an email to fix my phone to receive the 2.2 update - My phone is not rooted, nor do I want it to be, but it looks like I have to root and then unroot my phone :( and I am dreading this process.

    A big TY in advance

    You should just root your Dinc, you'll be able to control alot more than just apps. Plus your talking about getting better battery life....

    I got my Incredible and with in two weeks I rooted my phone. Before I didn't know anything about the Android Platform. Everything I've learned i've learned from here and maybe a few other forums. So anyways if you really want to change things like your saying you are trying to do I suggest Rooting. Main reason Battery Life I currently have my Battery life at x1.77 the original stock rom. That's just crazy!!

    You know I'm not sure how to do that and stay un-rooted If I were you I would try going to the rescue squad they have some good threads in there that may help. I'll keep looking around for you and I'll send you the link if I fine it! Is this the only forum site you use???

    Pretty much I read a lot on here and a couple of other Android forums - Although when I updated my radio I was under the impression that it would not effect future upgrades.. oh well
    In any event I do not want to root my phone but if thats what it takes (root and unroot) to get my Incredible back to stock, so that I can get the 2.2 upgrade I guess I won't have much of a choice....

    To my knowledge you had to root to downgrade the radio, but I read on another forum of a member taking the new RUU and flashing it that way without issue.

    No, I'm saying if you don't want root on the ota then there is no reason to downgrade at all. Just use the RUU to upgrade.
