    I am not planning on doing this, but this just popped into my head. If you have installed a custom kernal while rooted, and you want to flash back to 2.2, do you need to install the stock kernal, or do you not need to worry about it?

    i think if you just flash an SBF file it replaces kernel and everything.

    That is what I thought too. But, what if say your were to flash stock via ROM Manager instead of just flashing an SBF file?

    lol, I was just going to ask this same question...

    what happens to the kernel and recovery if you install the 2.2 FRG01B stock image from Rom Manager?

    Do you wind up with the same results as if you sbf'd?

    it will overwrite the kernel but you will still be rooted i believe not 100% though

    I don't think so, cuz ROM Manager says you can select whether you want rooted or unrooted for that ROM. So if you select unrooted, presumably you are left unrooted. No idea if it flashes over the stock recovery though. You'd think...
