    And I am really wanting to go back to 2.1
    Thought I found a great post on how to do that but now from adb shell I get a permission denied message and if I try and run adb root I get a root can not be run on production builds message.
    Does anyone know how to overcome this and revert back to good old 2.1?
    Can 2.2 be rooted?
    Why is Android/Verizon taking away the open source of Android?!?!?!
    I can just buy a crappy Iphone if I want to be pushed around.
    I am anxious to have a functional battery once again.
    Some great update!And where are the incredible speed gains that were promised?
    Froyo is a huge disappointment.

    Download the SPRecovery_ESE81.sbf file. You can find it on Pete's page. Use RSDlite to flash the phone with that sbf file. You'll have Sprecovery that will allow you to load custom roms. Google to find out how to go about this.

    I am having trouble with clockwork after flashing a few custom roms and then reinstalling the 2.2 update.zip to get the radio back to 2.x. Now clockwork doesnt do crap.

    Thanks a lot Dadajack but I can't find the revert.zip anywhere.
    Where would I find that?

    Well, i'll look around. If you read through the thread, you will see a reference to another page that some created basically copying this one. I used that site. It had all the links. Google "downgrade incredible 2.2 adb push". You should find the other page containing the links and instructions in one place. I am on a limited internet connection here in the sticks of central Texas right now, so reply will not be fast and furious for the weekend.

    OK so I am officially a jackass.
    I removed task killer and turned off Facebook sync,WiFi and GPS.
    The only real change being that GPS is turned off-on 2.1 I had WiFi off and FB wasn't an issue-and I am now at 49% battery with light usage today.
    I did spend time on the web and send some texts,couple of quick calls but the phone has plenty of juice.Turned on at 5:17 this morning.9:40 pm now.
    Strange that the phone needed a full charge and then ran well-made the adjustments yesterday and the battery was vanishing rapidly.
    The Opera mini-browser does seem a bit snappier although the other apps I have tried don't appear to be any faster.
    I am also a jackass for not previously disabling the root lockdown.Need to spend a little more time on the forum I suppose.
    Live and learn.I would actually love to root and tinker now but all of my attempts to downgrade to 2.1 have hit roadblocks.

    If anyone is interested in really going back to 2.1 I have the PB31IMG.zip file hosted on a download site. All you do is put the file in the root of your sd, power on the phone while holding the down volume and let it do its thing. You will have to re-root but it will put 2.1 update 1 back with 1.xx radio.
