    Hey, Speeddy posted this over at Alldroid:

    [Release] 2.0.1 stock to 2.1 with root!

    If you don't want to run the command prompt commands, I uploaded the combined file a little later on in the thread. (EDIT, actually, that's against the rules at Alldroid to post the update.zip. Oops)

    This should get you from stock 2.0.1 to ESE81 with root.

    Don't run this if you are already on ESE81!

    I know this is probably a newbish question, but is there something special I have to do in order to go from a 2.1 ESE53 base ROM to a 2.1 ESE81 base ROM?

    No. This isn't for rooted users at all. If you have a custom recovery, you should have no issues moving between cooked ROMs, so long as you follow the installation instructions.

    An odd thing happened: I tried this at first, and it updated to 2.1... but no su. When I re-ran it through the update process again (not downgrading to 2.0.1), su was restored and nothing seems to be of issue.

    Either way, it looks to be ok to run this from ESE81, from my experience...

    If I already updated to stock 2.1 can I just get this rooted update zip like a forced update so I don't have to go back to 2.0.1

    Yeah, uh, that's the exact same thing I posted in this thread 3 days ago :p

    For the last time, as of now, if you did the 2.1 OTA, the only way to get root back is to .sbf to 2.0.1.

    If you do that, then this method will let you get to 2.1 ESE81 w/ root. But you cannot use this update.zip to go from 2.1 un-rooted to 2.1 rooted.

    As of 4/4/2010

    btw, if anyone with a STOCK 2.0.1 wants to try this but doesn't know/want to manually combine the files, I have made the file as per Speeddy's instructions, and I can PM you the link.

    Okay, Sorry Fab...I thought that the new post was for people that already upgraded to 2.1.

    I didn't read closely enough to see it was the same thing and though someone had rooted 2.1...my bad.
