    Is there a way to root after the OTA 2.1 update yet?

    Sorry, I had my noob goggles on this morning and accidentally applied the OTA update after I did the baseband update so now I've lost root. I know, I know... that update file should never have been on my sd card to start with. :mad:

    I did a backup with ROMmanager prior to these updates, but can't do anything with it now. Just need to root again so life can continue.

    only way at the moment is to use an sbf file to get you back to 2.01 and reroot from there

    Simple answer, NO. The only way you can root is to use RSD Lite and flash back to the 2.0.1 SBF then root it and wait for someone to release a pre-rooted OTA 2.1 update.zip which should be anytime now if it hasn't already been done. You could wait for someone to find out how to root from 2.1 but I don't know how long that will take.

    Thanks for the info guys, guess I'll just hold what I have until 2.1 is rooted. I don't really want to roll back to 2.0.1 at this point. I don't think it'll be too much longer before 2.1 is rooted anyway
