    What the title says basically. I'm rooted and on 2.1, and was wondering what would happen if I install the upcoming OTA 2.2 update. Should I unroot it first?

    What OTA 2.2? The leaked version or official? Well either way, you would have to go to back to Stock 2.1 and not be rooted. If you want the leaked Froyo OTA, you would have to apply the leaked ota (22mb) and then root, and then apply the froyo ota.

    i have a question. lets say the official 2.2 released and some one made a rooted version. do i still need to install the leak OTA (720p, hotspot, etc) before installing the rooted 2.2?

    i think what he's asking is when the official froyo update comes out can he just install it over his rooted 2.1 then re-root the new froyo. we don't know if unrevoked works on the official froyo yet so you will probably have to downgrade first or wait for a rom with root. someone correct me if i'm wrong.
