    is there a way to undo the ota update that came out a few days ago? i can care less about rooting my phone but ever since i did the update it takes forever for my phone to dial out, which is weird because it seemed like a few people said the update improved this. i never had a lag problem while having my phone dial out until i did the ota update so if possible i would like to undo it...thanks in advance

    I believe you can but I think you have to reload the 2.1 update and will loose all your info as it will reset everything, correct me if I am wrong anyone

    right. Simply download the .5 RUU and run it, and it'll completely reset everything in your phone, but you'll be back to the original 2.1 update, rather than the .6 version

    It's likely available at XDA, or I'm sure there's a link for it somewhere on this forum.

    It's around, just gotta find it. XDA is likely your best bet

    Quick question for those with rooted 2.1:

    Have you also experienced a lag when dialing out?

    I hate to say this, but this is the Sprint HTC Hero forum, not the Verizon Motorola Droid forum, which is here: Motorola Droid - Android Forums

    I am sure the folks in that section of these forums can help you out with your problem. I wish you good luck.
