    I did option number 6 above, which is the one that takes the FRG22_update.zip and puts it on the sdcard in root dir as update.zip. Then I installed from recovery console.

    Ah, the OP has been updated since I last looked at it.

    Okay. All you did was put your phone back to stock ROM. I don't know if superuser is even gone now. You replaced your kernel, but you didn't replace your wallpaper or anything. I take back what I said about replacing EVERYTHING.

    If I go to settings in new "stock" rom now installed and reset to factory settings, will it put me back to complete out of box state. With the natural exception of being updated to 2.2. Or would it be better for me to installe ese81 then do the ota from verizon, if it's even still available?

    Can you get into the app drawer to check for Superuser Permissions?

    If so, do so. If not, just flash a straight 2.2 SBF and turn it in that way.

    When I go to apps, I do not see any superuser, rom manager, or anything like that. is there somewhere else to look or is that the only place?

    You're gold. Especially if ROM Manager didn't start downloading again as soon as you signed back into your Google account.

    This makes no sense to me. It's talking about installing SP Recovery and that there may be a problem if you have 2.2
    Either don't boot up into the phone, and have the update.zip preloaded on your phone, or boot into SPRecovery and use its "mount" function to connect to your PC to get the update.zip onto the root of your card, and then update your phone that way.

    If you dont boot into the phone than the only other choice is to use SP Recovery.
    They both seem to be saying the same thing. Is this a typo error. I had to unroot my phone as it kept give me the Over the Air update every few days. I'm waiting to get the next OTA and then want to root again, but now I have 2.2 on my phone.

    I really am not sure what you are saying or asking.

    There are three options to boot your droid. Bootloader, recovery or normal.

    To flash an sbf you need to be in the bootloader.
