    If you read the guide on how to root 2.1, you will see right up top it says:

    If you installed the OTA Update you MUST run the original 2.1 RUU. After you do that, apparently you can root again.

    I suggest reading..........

    Also be aware that apparently they put the update (.6) in the current downloadable file from Sprint so you will have to get a previous copy of the .5 file. I believe that there is a link to it in that same thread.

    Good Luck!
