    So I used the Evo for a while, go tbored and went back to my MOment, and just picked a new one up again. Went to browse though it here but much to my dismay, 2.2 cannot be rooted.

    So am I just boned? Did I miss a thread anywhere perhaps that explains how to do it? Is it possible to downgrade back to 2.1, then upgrade from there to 2.2 rooted?

    TIA.

    **EDIT** Nevermind. Damnit. Searched somemore and answeree my own question. Can;t downgrade. Can't even delete my own pointless thread, lol.

    ive raised an eyebrow that 2.2 hasn't been hacked yet. usually something promising is in the works at this point.

    I'm still betting an exploit will be announced before the end of this month.
