    Pretty sure you're in the same boat as a lot of people. I broke root for the update (unofficial) and now we have to play the waiting game until someone can root stock android 2.2. May be a week, may be a month...but I'm sure someone will figure it out.

    Listen to the man above me.

    I predict root will have to wait until some of the dev guys have had to replace phones and get stuck with unrooted official 2.2. They spent so much energy warning people that I doubt it's on the front burner.

    Just because you have the superuser icon doesn't mean you actually have a superuser in your file system anymore.

    The stock 2.2 (either the leak or the actual OTA) was designed to preserve all your apps and screens; that's why you still have the SU icon. But it has overwritten your file system, which means the superuser su is gone.

    You won't be able to root your phone until someone figures out how to break into a 2.2 build.
