    I thought you just move that system file and keep root?

    That's with the edited update. The VZW OTA is different.

    I am very curious about this,
    Because the file is not edited since we can apply it through stock recovery, so I would have to disagree and say it is not different, its a leaked official version
    So I wonder if you could just move su before the OTA and you would still have root.

    But none of this matters because birdman already rooted 2.2:D

    Lol. Point made. It was a signed update. But like droider said, 2.2 has been rooted alrady. Just not released.

    :D Does this mean there might be one of those '1-click' root thingies released soon for 2.2 so us scared 'newbs' don't have to go through the multi-step process with fingers crossed to get root in froyo?

    /fingers crossed... :eek:
