    Now that root is out for 2.2 I'm just curious how long everyone thinks it will take for someone to put up a website that will automatically root your phone like on 2.1

    I know someone is going too say its not hard or something like that but I don't want to damage my phone. I could do it if I wanted to but I'm just OK on a computer not great and I don't want to hit a wrong key somewhere and have a $500 paper weight

    The only reason I want to root is so I can use apps like shoot me and so I can over/under clock my phone and so I can wipe my battery stats. I won't be flashing new roms every few days or anything like that I'm happy with my launcher pro setup.

    Expect the SimpleRoot author(s) to incorporate today's downgrade steps into Simpleroot. Within a week, i'd say. You may still have to toggle airplane mode manually, but simpleroot will probably tell you when to do so.

    Actually, Simpleroot is basically an encapsulation of the original Toast method of rooting, which was about as complicated as the instructions posted today. That's why I think it will be fairly trivial for Simpleroot to do all this behind the click of a few buttons.

    You should be able to root with simple root with the 2.1 rom. To my knowledge, that is what I am going to do!

    THe only reason I am worried is because I am rooted just not to the nand recovery part. I am not sure if re-rooting with a different method over a custom rom is bad or not. Good luck getting your phone.

    You will not get a phone with 2.1 all evos to my knowledge are being sent with 2.2, so you will have to use the new root method or wait for simple root to be released

    Well see I am going to use the new root method to get down to 2.1, then im going to use simpleroot from there. As I do not like unrevoked.

    The new 2.2 exploit brings you down to 2.1. It then instructs people to do unrevoked3 + unrevoked4. But there's no reason why you can't do toast/simpleroot once you're at 2.1.

    Well, you are downgraded first so you have the ability to root. Once rooted, you can choose to stay at rooted 2.1, or you can flash a rooted 2.2 ROM.

    In other words, once you're rooted, you're no longer constrained to any version.
