    So I finally DL'ed the root explorer app just so I could move the su file and update to 2.2. Well after I longpressed the su file and selected move, I went back to /system/xbin to paste it. I selected paste and it told me that I "Cannot paste here because the file system is read only." What? Is no one else having this issue?? Please advise and thanks.

    Nevermind...I found the mount as R/O and mount R/W buttons. Got it moved now. About to update. Sweating a little bit since I really like my DX and don't want to screw it up.

    you must check r/w up at the top (to mount it)

    edit: ya beat me to it. i do little stuff like that all the time, and i'm always like, "WTF?!"..."oh, yeah..."

    Six? That's impressive, I had to do it again today for the second time and that process is a huge pain ha. Glad to have Bootstrap and ROM Manager now to create a backup incase something goes wrong. Definitely wouldn't want to spend a few hours flashing the .sbf, re-rooting, re-updating to 2.2, and re-installing all of my apps again. It was a big enough pain to do twice.

    i finally got mine right yesterday (after almost pulling my hair out, and figuring out that i needed to shorten the sbf name before RSD would work)

    well, today i went over to a friends to put 2.2 on his x. what do i do?? i stick my memory card in his phone, boot to recovery, apply update, and immediately realize i forgot to move su!
    so, flash his phone with the sbf, and what happens?? bootloop! why? forgot to wipe data.

    i think that pretty much sums up every problem i've seen here in the past 24 hours. i've answered those questions what feels like a million times, and i make all the mistakes myself over again. (makes me feel stupid :p)

    yup. what sucked most is that it wasnt even my phone. i had him looking over my shoulder the ENTIRE time, freaking out. it took some convincing that i actually knew what i was doing, and that i actually knew how to fix it.
