    I'm assuming since I basically already have 2.1, that there would be no reason but I've only had this phone for a few weeks so I just want to make sure.

    I'm rooted and running bugless beast. I followed this guide to get where I'm at. I have it slightly overclocked and a live background running.


    Is there any reason why I would need unroot it, revert to stock, and then install the OTA 2.1 when it comes over my phone?


    Thanks

    I haven't read anything suggesting there is any benefit to getting the ese81 build. If you want to try it, you don't have to un-root, there is a stock copy for rooted users you can download here: [ROM] ESE81 Completely Stock With Proper Root, SU, & Baseband

    From what I've seen, the BB you are running now is superior.

    Don't do it. I did & it's a major downgrade.

    If you unroot and install the official 2.1 you can't root it again later without jumping through the flaming hoops of death (well, using rdslite to reflash 2.01 and going from there). On the other hand, you can stay rooted and install the rooted version of the update mentioned above and be happy.
