Thanks much, Scotty. That worked perfectly and now I've got root. I can't believe how easy that was. So far I haven't downgraded and am doing the Titanium and Nandroid backups.
After the Titanium backups, I tried to remove some of the extra apps (CityID, VZW NAvigator, etc) using Titanium. However, even though Titanium reports the apps as having been removed, they are still present in the App drawer and still work. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here. I have the free Titanium app.
