Okay, now that Easy Root has been pulled from the market, is it possible to root using the RSDLite method we used under 2.1? I'm guessing so, but I don't want to tell anyone to go ahead and use that method if it's not going to take. Thanks!

From what I have read, you can root 2.2 using the same method as 2.1 - though in another thread is did ask for a link to EasyRoot. I will let you know if I obtain a copy.

Thanks. The only problem is it's a paid app and asking for it or offering links to download it will can get you banned if a Mod catches you.

Ah! I was not aware it was a paid app. I wonder if the developer has an alternative distribution method that would still allow payment.

1. Use the same process described in the sticky thread of rooting 2.1 (RSDlite +SBF).

2. Install one of the various FRG01B rooted ROMs.

i ended up using easyroot...what rom would u suggest at this time?
That depends on what you want for an experience -- for a tweaked, optimized "stock"-like experience, try CyanogenMOD. Kangerade, Sapphire, JRummy's Remix, Bugless Beast are all highly regarded.

If you just want to pretty things up, try a theme.

Another question, if I install a good ROM is it necessary to use overclocked kernels or just use SetCPU and if so, how do I install them since I used easyroot?

Nothing is "necessary", however if you want to install overclock, theme, or even install a new ROM over the stock one, you'll need an alternate recovery image like Clockwork Recovery or SPRecovery. Check my sig for a link to a thread that may help you out. :)

Well I used ROM Manager and did Flash ClockMod Recovery, what does that do?
