    The leaked update was so easy I am not even questioning this update, just doing it.

    I am wiping this time. I didn't last time, and sort of wish I had. Couple little issues that a pre-wipe or hard reset seem to avoid/fix. No point in a hard reset at this point :)

    Hi, so I rooted to 2.1 a while back and held off for the final 2.2 root, so right now I got the 2.1 OTA ROOT on my phone.
    Is it still advisable for me to wipe before flashing this 2.2 ROM or can I just flash over the 2.1 I currently have?

    Just want to be paranoid by asking first and not regretting later.

    So this means us with the unofficial update can now root? Advise me...

    OTA 2.1? Use simpleroot and THEN get the rooted 2.2 from xda. If that was a typo and you got the OTA 2.2, wait...someday there will be a root for it.

    If you got the rooted unoficial from xda, you can keep root with this new version. If you got it from HTC and are on 2.2 and not rooted...wait.

    I have no doubt there will be a root since new phones are coming or will be coming with this version. I just don't see much activity on xda with it.
