    I'm having a few issues with my X that are really starting to get under my skin, and I want to start from a new beginning. Currently, I'm running the first 2.2 leak and I'm rooted. Ideally, I'd like to get the OTA 2.2 and root it, but from what I understand I'll need to SBF back to 2.1, root, then update OTA?

    Or if the OTA doesn't greatly differ from my leak, I'd like to just factory reset. Is that possible or will I lose root? I depend heavily on wireless tether, which requires root (can't get any other internet service at my house).

    You can just flash back to 2.1 and start over or do a factory reset, you should not lose root access.

    If I were to just factory reset my leaked 2.2, I would lose root wouldn't I? Is there a way to root 2.2 yet?

    I just did a factory reset and did not lose root.

    Guys this is the Forums for the Samsung Captivate.

    But while this thread is here....I've heard people who flashed the leaked version of Froyo are stuck there. They can't flash the latest release as an update.....courtesy of Motorola being upset over the leak.

    I have the Droid.....which I still adore to this day, but I can't say I'd buy a newer Motorola. They've put a bad taste in my mouth with limiting their phones. HTC and Samsung still support open source.....they won't give you no crap.

    That being said.... that's just what I heard over at droid-life.com, which is a reliable source for info. You may be stuck my friend.....sorry

    Hm I don't know how I accidentally posted this in the captivate forum. Maybe a mod could move it to the X forum for me?

    And basically I just wanted to know if I would lose root if I factory reset the 2.2 leak.
