    From what I understand, when you update it will unroot the phone. But don't quote me on that.

    Do we need to re-add or rename the bloat apps back to normal if we removed or changed them BEFORE updating? And if not it will screw up the phone?

    Does this need to be done?

    You root android, to get root access, moto updates and android updates are the same thing.

    And no one knows if you need to unroot, or rebloat....NO ONE HAS 2.2.

    Go check the Incredible forum to get an idea. They have 2.2 already.

    Did they get it in a OTA update or flashing a ROM? It could make a difference.

    The only way to get 2.2 is to flash a ROM. :rolleyes: It was the OTA leaked version.

    There is a difference between a user flashing a leaked modified ROM and one forced on you OTA. Don't you think?:rolleyes:

    This is the reason I'm waiting to root until AFTER 2.2 comes out. I want this crap bloat ware off my phone, but until then I set my App killer to CRAZY on auto pilot, and it kills what I don't use. I will most DEFINITELY root when the froyo root is available. I will definitely be tethering when I travel, and I ain't paying no 20 bucks a month for it.
