is there a recovery zip for if you choose to un-root the droid? or do you just re install the update?
After rooting there is a program called AdFree that does exactly what you are talking about.I'm thinking that root access might be handy for
<Dr. Evil pinky> Adding "127.0.0.1 admob.com" to the hosts file </Dr.Evil pinky>
I'm curious if that would block all that adware from spamming me when using the "free" software.
From what I can tell these patches just have a script that mounts the /system file system and copies files to it. If the "recovery console" has root access wouldn't we be able to build your own zip files with (for example) an /etc/hosts file in it and just pretend its an update? This might give you temporary root access without a full fledged phone hack.
