    thanks guys I feel like a complete idiot I was hoping that I could get to adb somehow and just push flyx that way but no such luck

    Just remember next time after you flash... root, copy root privledges over to /xbin/. Upgrade to 2.2 and then flash the rom over it. I'm running FlyX with Tranquility over the top of it. Love it.

    With latest Universal Androroot you don't even need to copy su to xbin. Just root it and you good to go.

    really, why is that?, has anyone confirmed this?:thinking:
    If this is true thats awesome.
    Why couldn't androot be used to root 2.2, since the D2 method works

    I can confirm myself. Did at least three times that way. First time after root applied update.zip, and other two times just dowloaded and install 2.2 stock image in ROM Manager. Still have root access.

    Did not try to root 2.2 yet. May be next time when screw up something :)

    But for 2.1 it is confirmed that if you root with universal androroot you don't have to move su to/xbin.

    So I am confused when did you not move su and you still have root?

    Never seen confused bots before:)
    After flashing .sbf I rooted with Universal Androroot, then applied update.zip (without moving su to /xbin), and still had root.
