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)
"Convert2Ext4_no_data_limit_normal_dalvik.zip"

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?

questions:

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-5.0.2.0-inc.img" 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.
