Default Is it possible to root from 2.2 or do I have to reset to 2.1?

I have been trying to get my Mez rooted for a while now, with no luck whatsoever. I did a bit of researching, and it seems that the version of Froyo that we have is actually 2.2.1, which is incompatible with Z4Root and Super One Click.

Are there any simple ways of rooting 2.2.1, or am I stuck with doing a factory reset and rooting from 2.1?

If I DO reset to 2.1 and root, can I update to Froyo via Kies Mini again?

You can root 2.2.1 with SuperOne click. z4Root has not been supported for several months (maybe even a year or longer?) so I would not recommend using it.

I used Super One Click, v 1.9.1. It rooted on the first try.

Huh... I have had a bear of a time with S1C. I made sure that I had the Microsoft .net 2.0 installed on my computer, and I did everything else the way they tell you to, but it keeps getting stuck on the "Waiting for device" step.

I'm always impressed by the run on sentence. This one is a keeper. A run on and it makes no sense, either. Double score!

It made sense to me... it just doesn't work. You can't turn on debug mode while already plugged into USB...
