    Ok I had to do a factory reset because when I upgraded to 2.2 my phone was laggy but now its fine. But now whenever I open Superuser all I see is a black screen with "Superuser Preferences" under the notification bar.

    Just to clarify you carried over root from 2.1 to 2.2, then did a factory reset and lost root?

    It won't uninstall either.

    EDIT: Any similar superuser app unsuccessfully installs.

    I work in an office. It has a window, but it isn't
    In a house, near some mountains.
    do you have titanium backup installed? if so, try hitting the problems button, and reinstall busybox.

    Read the instructions at the top of that post, skip down to the part it tells you about using the SBF, once all those steps are complete (don't have to do the root part if you do not wish to be rooted) and then jump up to the apply 2.2 step.

    After the sbf install, it may get stuck in a boot loop, don't worry, simply do a battery pull, boot into recovery and do a factory reset, then reboot and apply the .604 step.

    I have done this a couple of times now and it works fine

    Follow these steps in THIS order. The isteps marked in red are only if you want a rooted 2.2 Froyo, if not, skip those.

    Thank you very much! I'll let you know how it turns it when I'm done.

    So it's in Bootloader mode and I have the sbf selected but it's not letting me click start.
