    I followed all of these instructions to downgrade my wife's rooted 2.1 and it seems to have worked fine. I've got it back to 1.5. She wanted the OTA upgrade because the 2.1 rooted version was giving her the silent call issue.

    Again, I went back to 1.5 because I wanted the OTA update. After doing this, she got the OTA update notification, it downloaded, processed and then failed. I've also tried to install the OTA manually and it won't work. The hboot is version 1.47.

    Has anybody had success downgrading their 2.1 rooted install to 1.5 and then getting the OTA update to work? I'm back at 1.5. What should I do next to get the OTA update working?

    You need to get rid of Amon's Recovery, because that is what was causing my OTA to fail. After I removed it, the ota installed just fine.

    Thanks for the help, man. That did the trick!

    I performed the downgrade on a different computer this time and flashing the recovery module seemed to go a lot smoother. I thought I did it right last time, but I guess not.

    All is well! Thanks!

    or you could have just flashed plain jane that jcase made out of the ota all it is, is OTA with root.
