    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.

    FROYO (2.2) SUCKS!
    Don't load this crap on your phone, it’s crippleware, it doesn't allow pdanet to run, it prevents you from creating a wifi hotspot, would not let me get on to many wifi sites, does not allow real skype to work, it loads a worthless crippleware version of skype that will not let you make internet calls, it ruins the battery life, and they load a bunch of crappy software and does not allow you to delete it. Things that 3rd party apps allowed you to do Froyo no blocks you from doing those things, Froyo Sucks! And they won't let you revert back to 2.1 once you do it, you’re stuck. Someone needs to start a class action lawsuit. I don’t want to risk rooting until my contract is up. There are no files of 2.1 around to load back on, no known way yet to downgrade back to 2.1. Verizon has a long history of crippling their phones, this is the most blatant crippling yet. I paid big buck for 2.1 features, now that they have my money they took those features back without my permission, they robbed me without warning, lying to me saying it was an upgrade, it is mainly a crippling to force you pay them to do things I was able to do for free on the phone that I paid them for. Posting in a couple places just to warn as many people as I can before they ruin their phone. I can’t risk rooting while under contract. I’ll try rooting when my contract is up, then if I brick it I can go get an iphone or something. (iphone mainly for the Universal Search, and the Universal cut/copy/paste, the two most important things that a PDA can have, the Palm OS had it but Palm OS is gone now, replaced by Palm WebOS which does not have it, iphone finally got Universal search and copy/paste, it’s the only PDA phone now that does have it. If I do switch, I’ll come back to Android when they finaly get a true universal search and a true universal cut copy past and desktop version to sync with.)
