    so i decided to take the dive and root my phone since my brother decided to jailbreak his iphone. just a couple of things i was wondering about. once i did get it rooted, i played with all the new stuff that opened up and 3 hours later i notice that my battery life has gotten much better. is this due to the root? or did i just get lucky with that 3 hours. along with batt getting better im noticing that it runs a little more crisp and speedy (took off some bloat so i expected this). one of the things that has been bugging me, i have not been able to get a clear cut answer as to going back to stock 2.2 if/when another ota comes out, would i use rsdlite 4.8 and the 2.2 sbf only to get it back to stock 2.2? will i need boot strap or anything else? all ive done is root (from 2.2 ota) and install tether, ti backup and remove bloat. or would i just be able to install ota since i dont have any custom rom on it?

    if you are only rooted with a stock 2.2 device then if and when another ota comes out then all you would have to do is unroot your x and your good .The only time you have to flash the sbf is if you screw up installing a custom rom/ theme and dont have a backup.So prior to you doing any customized roms or themes u have to do a back up that way if you screw up in the rom process or another ota comes out all u have to do is go to that backup and restore then unroot and your golden.

    No need to un-root.
    OTA work fine with root. You will only need to root again after the update.
    I was rooted with 2.1 and did the OTA 2.2 with no issues.
