Will a factory reset help me get back to the root?

    I recently updated my rooted Ally to version 2.2.1 which I know now shut down the ability to keep my phone rooted. Ive read a lot and there doesnt seem to be a way to root the new update. Is their a way to get back to the old version, perhaps trying factory reset? I really just want to be able to root my phone once more to use internet at home for my work :thinking:help!

    the guide tells you where to put the files...should only be 2 files that go onto your sd card, the rest are on the puter. follow the instructions very carefully, and you should be fine. read, reread, then re-reread. after this, you can download barnacle, pdanet, whatever you were using before to have wireless tether again.

    If you just want to root for internet there is a program called SuperOneClick 1.6.3 that is a much easier to use at [APP]SuperOneClick v1.6.3 (Root, Unroot, Enable Non-Market App, Get UNLOCK code) - xda-developersMake sure to get version 6.3.1 and follow the instructions on the page exactly, and consider donating to the developer if it helps you.
