    1. Download the file PB31IMG.zip and put it on the root of your SD card
    2. Shut down your phone
    3. Press and hold volume down and the power button to boot into HBoot
    4. The phone will find, load, and check the file you downloaded. It will then ask you if you would like to update using the file
    5. Press volume up to update the phone
    6. Reboot into your stock phone

    Do I need to convert to S-OFF? How do I do that? i used unrevoked3 to put froyo on in the first place.

    Thanks

    EDIT: Irrelevant to the question "asked"

    Just follow the instructions and it will become s-off....

    Those instructions you posted aren't for s-off... they are for updating your radio or trying to install stock 2.1 again (or also just trying to apply a custom update via the bootloader with s-off)

    are you wanting to go back to 1.x radio?

    if so using s-off is going to make your life easier.

    yes.. I already restored to 2.1 using nandroid restore. I still see the radio at 2.x..

    I am hoping that I can get the new 2.2 OTA, which is the reason I am doing this.

    If your going to stock to get the ota u should install s-off incase they remove the ability to root.... Also with s-off u can simply just flash the 2.1 RUU
