Going back to 2.1, who's with me?
I'm sure there's a few of you out there that are wondering if the 2.2 leak is worth it, and the only way you'll find out for sure is if you try it.
That being said, I did... and I'm going back to 2.1 until the official release of 2.2
Don't get me wrong, I love the idea of it. But for some reason my phone didn't like it. The only way I could get the phone to boot after shutting it down was to leave the battery out for an hour or so and then put it back in. I have no idea why it would be doing that.
Another reason is the market. For those of you who might be having trouble finding some of your apps to re-install them, it seems that the market doesn't recognize the 2.2 leak as "valid" and thus hides apps that are copy protected (or something like it). Try searching for Calorie Counter on an X with the 2.2 leak. You won't see the one by Fat Secret for example, among a 1/2 dozen others. I only cite this example because it's one I know of for sure, but there's other message boards with people not being able to get the apps they paid for.
The big thing I was looking forward to was Flash but it seems that's not worth my troubles for the time being. I can wait a few weeks (hopefully) for the real release.
I'm not saying "OMG 2.2 iz teh suxorz" or anything, I'm just saying that I've tried it and it's a bit buggy still. Now if you'll excuse me I have to go put on some flame ******ant gear just in case this gets a bit rowdy.

lol, i dont think youre gonna get flamed up for this opinion. as far as i am concerned, the 2.2 update adds 2 things that i want: the JIT, and flash. everything else is just gravy. i probably am going to wait and see what everyone finds with this new update before i commit to downloading it. kinda bummed that they disabled the ability to not have a swipe lock, though i can always go download no locif i need to

I understand your reasons and I also wonder just what will happen when the "official" OTA 2.2 drops in a few weeks. Will those of us with the leaked version be scrambling to get back to "stock" or will we be able to upgrade OTA regardless?
How exactly do you roll back to 2.1 anyway? I'd like to know I have that option also.

There's a post about the SBF in this sub forum, with a link to the instructions. I had a little trouble with it at first... you need to have your X in bootloader mode before you plug it in and use the flashing program. Otherwise it won't complete correctly.
To get to bootloader mode, power the phone off then press the power button while holding the camera button and volume down.

Sorry to hear about the problems people are having. Mine is working without issue. There is close to zero risk of bricking the phone if you are on the fence. If you don't like it you can go back relatively easily. I was bored last night and decided to go back to pristine copy of 2.1 then do the upgrade to 2.2. The only sticky part was the loss of protected apps. But the is a quick fix for that.

It's really easy to reflash to .604, I did it last night so I could have a fresh install of Froyo.
Followed the instructions here: Droid X
I'm loving Froyo, but I really hope a post upgrade root method becomes available soon. Seems there are some bugs with rooting pre Froyo so I didn't want to do that.

I too am going back to 2.1, for safety concerns. I know its not a big deal, I just want the official when it is released. To those who are considering going back, just make sure you follow the directions. I noticed I had different driver versions which caused things to not work as they should.
