    Ok so i did the whole 2.1 thing and works fine. Now i want to root my fone. I tried rooting it with 2.1 but had no success. im now trying to go back to 1.5 however have no idea how to do this. ive downloaded the 1.5 and went to install it but a window pops up and says that i need the updated ROM utility? any suggestions?

    You wanted to root 2.1? I'm pretty sure every single 2.1 ROM out there at the minute is rooted.

    (Unless you're talking about the official 2.1 for sprint phones. In which case you're in the wrong forum).

    allow me to help ya....if you already upgraded your phone to the official sprint 2.1 then you CANNOT root your phone..this hasnt been done yet so you will have to wait until people figure this out..therefore you cannot downgrade to 1.5 because you cant access the recovery screen.

    ^ Is correct. You are stuck with what you have (for now at least)....
