    well i have 2.2 on my phone but lost root
    something is messed up with my computer and its not recognizing my X
    tried to reinstall drivers to no avail

    can i use RSDLite + SPF to go back to 2.1, root and then reflash 2.2 so it'll stay rooted?

    Go into recovery, wipe cache, and factory reset from there. You should, from what I've seen people write, then boot into 2.1 where you can root and upgrade again.

    All that does is remove application data. It will not reset the firmware to 2.1.

    I'm trying to get back to 2.1 too. If you find a copy of the sbf feel free to send it my way.

    I've managed to restore my connection and I'm able to get in with ADB. It seems like /sqlite_stmt_journals/ so the old root method is not working.

    I think I am going to wait for a simpler way to root again on 2.2. I used the one click method before and am not confident about moving things from bins and such.

    The bottom of the first post here should resolve this. I lost root on 2.2 as well, then did the last step in the post and have root again.

    You might need to flash the sbf first. But, you'll bootloop after you do (at least others have). Then wipe cache and factory reset.

    Ok managed to get it working. I had to flash the sbf back on to get back to 2.1. Then I followed the instructions and life is good again.

    Did you lose everything.... apps,settings,etc.?

    Did you have to deactivate the phone?

    What was the exact procedure you followed?

    Yeah once your at stock 2.1 get root then do this. If not you will have to do it all over....

    1. Run "adb shell"
    2. Run "mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/system /system"
    3. Run "mv /system/bin/su /system/xbin/su"
    Then just reboot to recovery and apply 2.2 update..

    Yes I lost everything. I still had used titanium backup before I upgraded to 2.2 so I was able to restore my apps and settings.

    Ok, So I was able to root @2.1, then when I went to 2.2 I read that I needed to unroot to save my root access. Well I got the 2.2 not the 2.2.6 Froyo, and now no root. Is there an easy to understand method to roll back to 2.1 and upgrade back to 2.2 with root? I have the ADK, Droid X Bootstrap, rsdlite6.6 adb drivers which do not seem to load correctly on my Win 7. I used to do seem edits on the old Moto's back in the day with no prob, But I'm lost in this process.

    Thank Jeff
