    What new updates?

    Not really, as Froyo is not rootable currently, so once you upgrade, you have to downgrade again to root. If it's froyo you want (please clarify)? there are better things you can do.

    na i have 2.2 but there is a new update that is a fix for 2.2 that is OTA. the resson why is coz i got a custom rom or 2.2 on there it is saved to the memory card and if i remove it the phone will not start up. but if i got the 2.2 OTA update that would be stored to the phone correct?

    All custom roms are stored on the phone itself. Its not possible not to be.

    If removing the SD card stops it booting, then there is another issue perhaps? Are you using a2sd+?

    All I can think is that there is other stuff on your card that Froyo wants in order to boot. Maybe some apps?

    Yep, but until they re-release it (that being the only method) we're stuck unless we downgrade first.

    Firstly, what version are you running on now? Go to Settings>About phone>Software information

    If it's 2.09.405.8 you can either get the OTA update (Settings>About phone>System software updates) or get the full RUU file (which will reset your phone) form here:

    Shipped ROMs

    The RUU you want is this:

    RUU_Bravo_Froyo_HTC_WWE_2.10.405.2_R_Radio_32.44.00.32U_5.09.05.30_2_release_142828_signed.exe

    If going down the RUU route, you'll need your phone to be connected with HTC Sync and then just run the file

    That's because you're not fully following the instructions. You need to press vol-up and power.

    Noooooo. You don't check for the update. You cant get OTA when rooted. Download what Eddy OS said onto your computer, connect with htc sync and run the file you downloaded.

    I believe when you install an RUU, you will lose everything. It will be like a new phone, only on the latest version.

    Download mybackup pro free trial and backup what you can. If you have google contacts and google calendar sync DO NOT back up contacts or calendar

    New root isn't far away (you can get the new unrEVOked release candidate from their IRC channel if you wanna try it). I've already rooted my stock 2.10.405.2 ROM and it worked first time in W7 x64 Ultimate

    If not, just wait for the final release to come out and do it then :)

    The new unrevoked3 (3.2) will probably work but there is a chance that it will permanently brick the phone. Until the final stable release comes out, the best way is to downgrade the software and use unrevoked 3.14.
