    Good news, everyone!

    smwoodward posted a working method on xda-developers to downgrade an Incredible running 2.2 to 2.1, even if it was un-rooted.

    The original thread is here. However, he didn't have a high enough post count to link to files directly, which makes it a little harder to follow. Another forum member mirrored the instructions on his blog, including links to the necessary files.

    I can confirm that this works (just did it). One thing to note (that the mirrored guide doesn't include) is that you have to have HTC's adb drivers installed; you can do this either through unrevoked (instructions here) or by installing and then uninstalling HTC Sync. I think the former is easier ... I'm also not sure if you have to use a specific version of HTC Sync for this to work.

    But anyway, FREEDOM!

    Wait, do you mean is there a way to root an official version of 2.2? Not as far ask I know.

    There are leaked versions of 2.2 floating around out there that you should installed rooted, but I'm not sure. Some of the modified versions are based on 2.2 also.
