    I believe you. If anyone has followed along, we saw a few hours ago in another thread that it was possible.
    It appears that you have completed the whole process. Congrats.
    Rooting is not for me, but I will give you a Thanks for your bravery in risking your phone in the process to help everyone in this community.

    Understandable, but if you check those 2 threads where this whole thing was getting figured out you can see it makes perfect sense why OTA can root.
    1.5 can root, and people that went from 1.5 to OTA still kept the same boot loader.
    The boot loader got changed on anyone's phone who did leaks, and that is what prevents them from leaking.

    Patience is a virtue. Glad I waited for the OTA.

    Can anyone quickly tell me or link, what does "root" do for the phone, why should/would someone want to root their phone.

    Go ahead and get cranky for me not searching the forums for it, theres a ton of 2.1 stuff I'd have to sift through.

    Try the "ALL THINGS ROOT" section on the main page of this forum...

    But in short: hacks into the phone to give you administrator privilages. Basically.

    Thanks SSGTOB1. I'm happy that you are able to experience root. How could any of us leakers have known that a 1.5 root would be discovered a week later? :(
