    I am trying to root my droid. I have done the manual update to 2.1. I want to know if I need to downgrade. If I do then how do I do it. Or if I can just root it can someone please help me find out how. I want to be able to tether to my ipad as well. if someone could help me outline how to do these things I would really appreciate it. I also want to know what features I will be disabling because there are some features that I am not willing to sacrifice.

    I'm pretty sure they rooted the 2.1 .Sbf file so no real reason yo go back to 2.0.1 then back up to 2.1

    So.... does that mean I don't have to flash if I have the 2.1 sbf that is rooted?
    If so then that solves a ton of issues.
