Hey guys, Spencer here. I've been trying to get all this rooting stuff figured out for awhile.

So, I originally rooted to 2.0.1, then I think i went wrong when i hit Install 2.1 when the message popped up on my screen after i rooted. So, I did that, but SuperUser Permissions app still appears in my App Drawer. Basically, I want to run Froyo (2.2) on my phone and that's all I ask. If someone could point me in the right direction with a step-by-step, that would be awesome because i'm lost now!

RSD Lite back to 2.0.1. use DM updater from Droidmod.org to root, then install a Froyo Rom.

+1 for installing a custom ROM. Love the ability to change ROMs, and theme them.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but he wants 2.2 without root? I thought all 2.2 roms were rooted?

You don't need to go all the way back to 2.0.1. There is an sprecovery .sbf listed in that guide, flash it then you can put new ROMs on.
Also, if you were rooted on 2.0.1 and axcepted the ota for 2.1 if you had sprecovery it should have been blocked. What comes up when you power off, hold x on keyboard and power on??

If this is the case all you can do is flash the 2.1 .sbf and wait for the ota, whish hasn't come out yet.

So i downloaded DM Updater and followed all the steps up until it tells you to put it into recovery mode and install the update, dont i need the 2.2 update zip first? If so, could you link me to the right 2.2 file Titans?
