    Hey all, I've been super busy lately so I haven't had time to dive into the new updates for my X. I Rooted my phone originally using the 1 click method and I am running Flyx and the leaked Froyo.

    My questions are:

    Should I move to "upgrade" to the new stuff?
    Is there a special way to go from the "Old" Root to the "New" Root?
    What is the best "New" Root way? (Thinking of using this: One Click Droid X Froyo ROOOOT GUI! - Droid X Rooting - AllDroid Public Board - One Click Droid X Froyo ROOOOT GUI! - Droid X Rooting - AllDroid Public Board - AllDroid.org > Home)
    Any detailed instructions and/or links would be greatly appreciated, as I am a bit out of the loop for now.

    Thanks in advance :)

    what are you talking about. . Root is root. It's just superuser access. If you mean you're currently on the leaked Froyo and are thinking of going to the OTA there really isn't any benefit in doing so.

    I was under the impression that i would have to flash my phone back to factory to be able to go to OTA and root that. Apparently i was mistaken?

    oh yeah. To go from a rooted leaked 2.2 (2.3.9 (13) (15)) you need to SBF to go back to stock 2.1 then you can poll the servers for an update in the system updates in settings. Then just use the super-one-click root to gain back root access. Same process to root if you were to use ADB though. You just cant go from leaked straight to OTA

    OK cool, I don't feel as stupid now. You say I wouldn't gain anything from switching to the OTA, but I am assuming that sooner or later I will have to do it anyway. Is there any reason NOT to switch to OTA?

    NO NO
    Just flash the 2.2 SBF and your there. You don't have to worry about going back to anything any more. Once there I used the one-click root that works with (almost) all phones

    oh that's convenient then. You can do it either way just his is easier. :p
     
  8. I too have been contemplating switching root methods because when I rooted I did it the original, LONG, drawn out way. Now I understand there is a root available that you can one click to unroot as well. That would be incentive enough for me, because as it stands right now I have no idea how to unroot if I needed to.

    So going along with the original question, how would I unroot my current method so that I could root with the one-click method and have unroot available to me whenever I wanted/needed to? Or is it completely unnecessary to do so?

    not too sure if there is a way to unroot the easy way from the original way you rooted your phone. Usually, the one click roots have one click unroot options as well. My advice would be to flash to leaked 2.2 sbf and start fresh through bootloader. You don't need root to do this you can just dl the .sbf file from Home as well as RSD lite v4.8 and boot ur phone up through bootloader (hold and press the red camera button, volume down button, and power button all in sequential order). You can reroot using an easy root program from here.
    Cheers,
