    Official as of today yes. Downloaded release and installed. already installed one app and moved others to sd card. Got a few bugs now but working on that. Overall though, tuns faster now

    Wasn't sure of the root scene at all but now I have a new releaseand gotta wait for a root?

    This is OTA uninstalled, then picked over to keep root, fyi. This does not mean there is a root method for the OTA once installed directly from Sprint or HTC... there is no root yet for the OTA to froyo. If you have installed the above link and NOT the OTA directly, then you are fine and still have root.

    Yeah you're right.

    I rooted with Simple Root first, then flashed that 2.2 ROM, then flashed the radios and the 3.7.6c froyo kernel from netarchy.

    Worth repeating:

    The above link is ONLY for people who ALREADY have root. People who are not currently rooted CANNOT flash custom roms, like the one presented in the above link. If you are on 2.2 and not rooted, there is currently no known method to root your phone.

    No Root for you... None of the official 2.2 releases have been rooted as of yet.
