    I've been rooted and running DroidMod for a while so I guess I missed the OTA or something. I've heard that the ROMS for 2.1 are gonna be better and more stable so I was wondering if there was an easy way to get to 2.1 from a 2.0.1 ROM.

    You don't touch the memory. You wipe data, cache, and system.


    Try "Titanium backup". It might be just what you are looking for.

    Ok thanks. Is there a chance that this will become doable via update.zip in the future?

    A lot of ROMs are, but going from 2.0.1 to 2.1 is not, nor will it ever be (as far as I know) an option. Updating is only an option when certain key elements remain unchanged. 2.1 was a complete overhaul... Kernel and all.

    Hmm ok. If I go back to stock 2.0.1, will I be able to get the OTA via Check for Updates or something?

    Get titanium backup and you can backup all of your apps and data. Just wipe data when you update to a 2.1 rom and all you will need to do when it reboots is log into your gmail account, the rest you can restore from your backup. Just a minor hassle going from a 2.01 rom to 2.1. Once you are running a 2.1 you shouldn't have to wipe data if you try a different 2.1.

    Ok Thanks. Would the re-rooting process be the same? Can I use DMupdater to do it again?
