Stock Rooted Froyo OTA Release
For you guys who aren't aware the Stock OTA Froyo has been rooted and deodexed. Just figure I would give a heads up!
Completely unmodified (odexed version) and sourced from RUU_Incredible_C_Froyo_VERIZON_WWE_3.21.605.1_Radi o_2.15.00.07.28_2k4k_NV_1.50_PRL58006_release_1433 51_signed.exe.
Includes all system components and full boot image.
Rooted with Superuser 2.3.4.
Nothing removed, odexed and deodexed+zipaligned versions both available here. Thanks to brucekey/deficitism for the deodexed version.
You must be rooted, have nand unlocked and be running a 2.x radio. Follow dadicus' guide for details on how to perform these steps.
Perform a nandroid backup of your current ROM, in case you change your mind or encounter issues.
Apply the zip via Clockwork Recovery. It has not been tested with any other recovery.
If you are coming from another completely stock ROM (i.e. Sense 2.1 or 2.2), you may not have to wipe data. I obviously recommend wiping data (since it will eliminate any possibly bad/stale configuration), but the update script will not do so automatically during installation. Use your best judgement to determine what works best for you.

No this is merely the ROM striped out of the RUU, deodexed and rooted. Hboot doesn't really matter. If you are already running a 2.x radio this ROM will run fine. All it is, is the OTA completely stock with busybox and root.
I plan on taking this, like I tried on SR, and striping it down to a vanilla install. Then all will be well. That way I don't have all the customized skyraider robots etc. If you get the deodexed one you can install themes etc on it and whatever else you want. Think of this as the ground work. I'm going to cook my own ROM since it seems to me that SR just isn't doing it.
Now hopefully Cyanogen can release a really nice pure vanilla rom!!!
Ok installing now, should have this thing cleaned up and running nice in a few hours! Can't wait!

I think I was stupid...again
Ok guys don't flame me just help me k? :P I of course being the patient man that I am...installed the RUU_Incredible_C_Froyo_VERIZON_WWE_3.21.605.1_Radi o_2.15.00.07.28_2k4k_NV_1.50_PRL58006_release_1433 51_signed.exe as soon as it hit the boards early today. Works great..however I now of course no longer have root ...I DID however make sure to install s-off before I did the rom flash...now the big question...how in the heck do I get root back? :P
If you have s-off it will allow you to flash clockworkmod back onto it. Download clockworkmod and name it update.zip. After you get clockworkmod installed download and install a rooted rom.
Should have waited.....
Just an update got everything cleaned up, got BFS #1 installed running well!!
Neocore: 26.9 FPS
Running a 1.113 OC on the kernel. Didn't take much work at all really. I've had a few requests now about cooking this into a ROM for you guys. Not sure quite frankly how I feel about doing that as it adds more work to me because people will expect support. I will look into it more tomorrow but right now I'm happy as all heck. Wonder what exactly is different from this and SKyraider 2.5.2, the official does score higher on tests....humm.

You have to be booted into clockworkrecovery and have the /system partition mounted. I know that is correct because that's straight from one of my batch scripts. Remember the phone is case sensitive so if it's upper case it has to be upper case.

I know it's early, but do you guys think this 100% version of Froyo is significantly better than the one that leaked a few weeks ago? I've got my phone set up exactly the way that I like it, so I'm a little hesitant to switch over to the final version without a somewhat compelling reason to do so.
