    Leave it on. Activate it in order to get the first OTA, but it will get reset when you wipe it for Froyo install. You will have to activate it twice. The order is pretty much: First OTA> Leaked OTA>Root>Froyo. Guides for those are posted above.

    It may seem like a lot, but it really isnt. You will be ready in no time. Plus with root, it opens up ALL kinds of possibilities.

    Hey, can you please update the URL to 2.2 ? There are some better ones (I think) out there, Adrynalyn has one and there's another about Stock 2.2 with Sense "Everything works!". Not sure if you're pointing to either of these ROMs.
