    So I had previously rooted my BH2. I used both the Galaxy and the newer BH2 Stock from BH MAN. Since I was having that annoying random reboot problem, I decided to use my 14 day period and just get a new one. So far so good.

    But now I'm sitting here with it out of the box. I really miss having it rooted... mainly the speed of the phone. But I'm wondering if I should just wait until this little update comes out before spending the time to root and then odin and then root yet again. Anyone have any thoughts?

    Once we have the update file, you can just delete everything from the file except kernel and AMSS. Then ODIN just that to get the new kernel and baseband.

    So go ahead and root if you want :)

    Ah ok very cool. So essentially, by doing this, I'll be able to get the important fixes and leave out the added bloatware? Rooting tonight after work! :D

    Some fixes will be on the 'system', so you wont get them untill BH_MAN updates his ROM.

    So you can have:

    - Non Updated BH2 kernel + BH_MAN rom with unupdated system - as now
    - Updated BH2 kernel + BH_MAN rom with unupdated system - if you update, THEN root - OR - root, then flash just AMSS and kernel
    - Have updated kernel + system + BH_MAN rom _WHEN_ he updates it

    busybox + find / -name *.zip should do :)

    heh, I just did a ls -R -a -l > files.txt, sorted the text by file size. I just have to remember to pull out my sd card to shorted the process, when I finally get the update.
