    I got my "dinc" in early August with 2.1 onboard and recieved the OTA froyo upgrade about two weeks ago. I like 2.2 (I think) but not all the battery-vampire crap-apps that came with it.

    I desparately want to root so that I can explore the full potential of this phone and hopefully find some options to extend my battery and get rid of the bloatware.

    Unrevoked's website says v3.2 has been temporarily pulled and to use v2.2 "in the meantime". I've tried several of the methods that call for 3.2 using 2.2 and it seems to work up to the reboot step towards the end. Each time I get this "failed to flash recovery image" message. I've followed every detail of several videos and posts (including one from this forum) instructing how to root with Unrevoked, but the end result is always the same.

    I guess my questions are...

    1. Can I use Unrevoked to root my phone with the froyo upgrade in place?
    2. If so, how? Because what I've been trying ain't gettin' it done.
    3. If not, is there a way to roll-back to 2.1 so that I can use Unrevoked?
    4. Could the 2.2 version of Unrevoked be casuing my "failed flash" issue?

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
