    So will this work if I am rooted? Do I have to return to stock to load it?

    I'm on stock ota 2.1 as well, i'd also like to know if doing the normal update process using this would root the phone.

    Nope.

    You would have to relash your phone to 2.0.1 via RSDLite and using an sbf, and then install the hacked update.

    You absolutely must be rooted.

    You are not listening to me, or don't understand.

    1. You must be rooted prior to installing this. How you do it does not matter to me, but it must be done.
    2. You cannot install it over the stock 2.1 and gain root access. It must be installed INSTEAD of the stock 2.1 update.
