    Hey there Dougie boy. What I meant is that the radio would have needed to be updated first before anything else would work, wouldn't it?

    Nope. Whole thing needs to be updated at once. A mish mash of updates will not work. Plus goingthrough the trouble of updating the radio, might as well do the whole kit and kaboodle.

    Sorry for the delay in answering I have been real busy at work and havent had time to get on, what I did was just ran Dougs 2.2 unroot file and it updated it back to 2.2 for some reason none of the manual updates I found would work, but I will def same myself alot of head ache if I un root again and just use Dougs unroot the first time. Thanks Doug, by the way his unroot is stickied to the top of this forum

    There are a few Advtages it just depends what you want the main reason I did it was for the free wifi, but you can also over clock or underclock, put custom splash screens screens and many others things I find more each day, as far as returning to stock, and some one correct me if I am wrong I am still new because when I unrooted my security was still off and that would tell Verizon you messed with it, but from what I figured out is first use unrevokeds unrevoked forever software to turn your security back on than you can use dougs 2.2 unroot which is stickied to the top of this forum and prob has better instructions and has the file Hope this helps

    Rob, if you root your phone and change your mind, follow the instructions in the tutorial that is linked to my signature rather than downgrading. It will save you a headache.
