    If you had 2.2 the Root Method he tried wasnt made for your version..He did the wrong Root Method.....

    So your on 2.2 now but its just Laggy?

    How did he went from 2.2 to 2.1? There's only one way and is done by following the link provides above.

    If your on 2.1 then visit on your phone browser Unrevoked.com/m Root your phone and if it wont let you install the update Automatically your have to download and flash the ROM yourself....And seeing as you said your not too tech savy...your friend put you in quite a jam:(

    I Searched online and found this but i see no news of this on XDA Froyo 2.2 has been Rooted!! @ Simple Root:thinking::thinking::thinking::thinking:

    Edit: Seems likes a dud.. One of the comments posted says its for the 1.47 Version Not the .6 OTA.....Looks like your friend google searched a root method and tried it without proper researching

    The date for the Download is "added: 02/08/2010"

    Dont let your friend touch your phone again
