it's the beginnings of your process of getting to 2.2 and then getting s-off.

i want to run this MOD, (located on a link on the thread)

so that i can fix the Low Data Notification.
i see in your thread, post 629,

[How To] Root 2.3.4/downgrade and Get S-off

how to put in some code in mac's terminal program. is that step in the rooting process how you actually get from 2.3.4 gingerbread back to 2.2 froyo?


1. it looks like the directions on that thread work to simply gain root, is that correct? (but w/ s-on, right? that means that it's not a "permanent" root, correct?)

2. i downloaded a md5 checker, and the "recovery-clockwork-" seems to verfiy w/ your numbers, but my "Reflash.dmg," the unrevoked 3.22 seems to be different. is that because i got the mac version?

3. does anybody have the mac version's md5 numbers, just in case? i just don't want to mess up this root. (first time rooting)

3.5 how important is it that i double check the md5 numbers?

4. how "important" is it that i get s-off? will i notice a difference or anything like that? it's my first time rooting, period, so maybe i don't need to try this step yet?
If you follow the complete first post you will end up with s-off ( [How To] Root 2.3.4/downgrade and Get S-off )... The md5 for unrevoked is not that important, it's not installing anything that will brick your phone.

I personally believe it is worth the effort to achieve s-off because it gives you more options and overall makes having root easier.
