    Just one quick question. If I root using toast's method, will that prevent me from getting the official OTA froyo update when it gets pushed out next month?

    No I don't plan on flashing any custom roms before then, I just want to root for the free wifi tethering and a few select root-needed apps.

    If you're not planning on flashing any custom ROMs, why not use the unrevoked method?

    I believe that it will, yes. You'll have to wait for a new, rooted ROM to flash, or go back to stock.

    Yeah, details on this? Link?

    Edit: Unless he's confusing a port as an official ROM.

    Ok real quick let me try to answer this the best that I can. First of all this is the first I have heard of a Froyo update set for next month and is more than likey wrong! Secondly yes if you root via Toast you will have to restore your phone to stock or wait for a rooted rom of the update itself just as mrk mentioned above, however, that will more than likely the difference of a few hours. In most cases dev teams will release a rooted version of an official ROM pretty quickly. If you are looking to ROOT to try ROMs Toast is your ONLY choice at the moment but if you just want Wifi Tether than unrEVoked will work just fine and still allow you to upgrage OTA.

    Okay - so I just flashed Calkulin's custom rom... and it all works fine.. and I have downloaded the stock sprint roms, plus the stock sprint rooted roms.

    I just have to run the sprint stock (non rooted one) RUU in windows while connected via usb to restore back to sprint to get the OTA froyo update when it's released, correct?

    Is this the same thing I would need to do to get rid of root in order to return the phone to sprint in case I needed to replace it? (If something were to go wrong hardware wise).

    I've rooted using Toast's method... From what I know of Toast vs UnrEVOked, and generally everything else in the world (more work = more gain):

    Toast requires more work, but works better and allows for more in depth modification (average user beware)

    UnrEVOked = easier , less modifcation possible, seems like people who root using UnrEVOked always post having trouble.

    Just my observations as I have only used Toast.

    I'm always on the xda dev forums and people who go on there are can't do anything without usings Toasts method...

    Agreed. I used unrevoked simply for the hotspot ability. Being an Android noob, I'm not really comfortable installing custom roms.

    Because I like to have the option there to flash if I chose so, which I did do.not to mention, rooting the toast way is tons more fun.

    So, where did you hear of an official 2.2 update next month....link?

    If you're going to include what I think is breaking news in your question, people are going to ask.
