Default Frk76?

i've been poking around, not really savvy on this stuff. FRK76 doesn't seem to be breaking tethering (pdanet) for anyone, does it? it seems to just be a security update and not a GB update? thanks. sorry for being new. but thanks to you guys i just figured out how to root my phone.

FRK may break your root. No one has reported that it breaks tethering, though. See Can't root 2.2.3 with SuperOneClick? for more info

thanks. yeah, i used super one click to root my 2.2.2; i think i have the confidence to up the phone to 2.2.3 and try again.

i guess what worried me was that i heard GB phones were taking you to a provisioning page if you tried to tether, and that was what i was trying to avoid.

FRK - F - FroYo.

FroYo ROMs = 2.2.X

GB ROMs = 2.3.X

After applying the FRK update your phone Android version number is 2.2.3.

So, you're still on FroYo.

If I may add, the newest (Froyo and late in the game) 2.2.3/FRK76 update for the A855 doesn't boost performance at all, it's just another update to close a tiny security hole in the browser (which also _might_ have made some of the One Click rooters not work). All OTA updates will break root.

good luck
