    Do it the original, old-school way; manually.

    confirmed Z4root works you just gotta be patient with it.
    SOmetimes you need to reboot and try again several times.

    I know when I use my Nandroid method to go back stock to get OTA's it takes several tries but z4root gets it. usually 2 tries but it did go 3 tries once. Meaning 3 reboots and running Z4Root each time.

    Do some research please before posting. rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin works on all android phones. Also, you can flash recovery via fastboot no root needed than flash superuser.zip. That is of course if z4root didn't work for you.

    so even with 2.1 update 1, it should work after a few tries as long as i reboot the phone each time?

    Yes. I recently used Z4root from version 2.1 update 1 (the VZC update) and had to boot and retry a total of 3 times. It can take about 2-10 minutes for Z4root to finish, but it will tell you when it is done and rebooting if successful. If it just sits there spinning over 10 minutes, reboot and start over. It should eventually work.

    When it worked for me the third time it was finished in only about 2 minutes.
