Ok so I was stock with manual install of 2.2, I decided to go back to root so here is what was done:
1.full battery, downloaded the SPRecovery_for_ESE81
2.opened RSDlight, turned phone off pressed up on dpad and turned phone on.
3.see the bootloader, RSDlight shows my phone, browsed for the file, found the file clicked on start
4.phone went to 93% rebooted came back says 100% completed
5.battery light on phone is on, says 0% battery, connect charger
6.rebooted phone, now still no battery juice and not showing it is connected to wall and charging (even though it is)
7.phone is now rebooting every 30secs from home screen (android system is giving force close message as well)
8.reconnect phone to PC ran RSDlight and downloaded 2.01 flash file to go back to stock, giving error "about checksums failed"
9.flashed back to 2.01 stock still giving error

as of now I am at the bootloader but no idea where to go or what to do from here, side note, my batter is getting very warm, bootloader shows battery OK and 2c.7c...

help please =/

**update: Leaving phone plugged into wall charging, no change in LED indicator(bright red still) and no change in battery, still not showing it charging at all

1.plugged phone into PC, started RSDlight, turned phone off, power+dpad UP, now at bootloader
2.RSDlight shows device, browsed to the stock 2.01 flash file, start
3.currently at 80%

**update: I am back to stock 2.2

I have a question though, if you are 2.2 stock and want to root, do I have to flash the 2.01 file then put sprecovery then back to 2.01 then load a rom or is there an easier way?

Thanks lol yeah it has been very interesting to say the least..Well I was working fine and decided lets try this again but with 2.01 then sprecovery..so I flashed over 2.01 and booted phone, now I am stuck at the android (touch to activate call screen) I have done the activation call 4 times and have reflashed 2.01 3 times and still cannot get past that damn droid!!! Once it says my phone has been activated I click next and it dumps me back at the android to start the activation call again..Now it does say wait up too 15mins and I have waited that+ longer with nothing new happening..Any idea from here?

I do not recall hearing of this particular issue. Did you wipe data and cache? I'll try to get some of the other RS folks to weigh in.

No to the wipe since I have not made it that far..All all I have done is flash over the 2.01

Yes you will have to use rsdlite to flash back to 2.01. I know you said you tried that, but right now that is the only way to root 2.2.

Right, but once I listen to the message and it says that it is now activated and I click next, it looks me back to listen to the message and activate the phone again...

I have tried rebooting, same thing
I have tried battery pull 30secs, same thing
I have tried flashing again, same thing

same thing=once the phone is activated, it loops and asks me to click the droid to activate my phone

to skip it you can touch all four corners of your screen, I am looking into any activation issues.

you have 2.01, now try using rsdlite to flash 2.1 ese sprecovery. Then try to activate it.

Sorry, just got back.
As Mike and PC have said you need to be able to flash back to 2.0.1 to root 2.2.

Maybe take a break shut the phone off, let the phone cool, reboot your PC.

RSD is VERY picky some times. Keep trying after it cools.

As long as you get into bootloader you're ok.
