    Thanks for putting up the procedure comrade! I have everything turned back to 2.1... but the girlfriends computer doesn't like .net framework stuff that simple root wants in order to run....

    So tomorrow I'll finish it off on my computer!

    It's been a long....um......36hrs without root! Lol

    so if i flash a froyo stock rooted rom it should work?
    thanks for the help by the way any help is better than nothing (have a few hours searching and nothing)
    Right after I rooted I flashed the AC-rom. It is a great 2.2 rom made by the legendary people on this forum.

    Everything works for me on that rom. 4G is supposed to work but I cant test it. Rom manager does work.
    Be sure to read the first 3 posts as it tells you everything you need to know. There is an attached text document on one post that tells how to flash the custom theme.

    All you get is the stock Rom with root.... From that point, you can flash whatever Rom you decide to download.

    So I can just use the simple root to root and just keep it as is until I can figure out a ROM that I want? Also when I root, should I just backup using Nandroid? Or do that after I install a custom ROM?

    PC36IMG.zip. should be on the root of your SD card.

    Sounds like you missed a step or two.

    you are right the simpleroot rom does not have super user
    just installed a rooted stock froyo and that little ninja is there lol
    ninja approved rom manager and now it works...
    but i notice that the pro version is worth it b.c the free version i am not able to look for any rom on line

    Ok so I'm stuck. I did the SimpleRoot and now it's asking me to chose between clockwork or ra_recovery. Which do I chose???

    Simple root gives you a stock rooted 2.1, you will need to flash a custom Rom to get the super user app your looking for. Or download it from the market.

    The easiest way to check if you have root is to download a terminal emulator from the market and type in : Su, if it gives you a # your good to go.

    Which do I chose though? I haven't actually finished the Simple Root. I clicked on ROOT then step two makes you chose between Clockwork or RA_Recovery. Do I click on clockwork or RA_recovery for now? I do have a ROM picked out (the one d3xn2o is using) but I have NO idea how to actually install a custom ROM

    i personally like clockwork, but either will do.

    After you install the recovery, please download the stock rooted 2.2, http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=743781
    Boot into recovery mode and flash that zip.

    Then reboot into recovery and make a back up.

    After that install any rom you like.

    I would chose RA. from what I have read it works slightly beret than clock work.

    Lj Beats me to the punch.

    Ok so I searched this whole thread (and this has kept up this long) But I get
    Code:
    chmod 0755 /data/local/flash_image: no such file or directory
    That is I think step 7 or 8?

    Thoughts?

    I am not dumb, I've rooted other systems before, and I am following this to the letter, what could I be doing wrong?

    Hmmm, did you make sure you adb pushed it correctly earlier?

    Hey all. I successfully used the methods posted here and on XDA to downgrade to 2.1 and start to root from there. Thanks UTnick for your help in the other thread. I managed to solve the exclamation sign.

    So far, I have installed:

    * [Recovery] Amon RA recovery v1.7.0.2
    * [ROM] SteelH's HTC Froyo 2.2 Rev E.2 LINK
    * [Kernel] netarchy's toastmod v4.1.8 LINK
    * [Radio] EVO Radio v2.15.00.07.28 and EVO WiMAX 26023 R01 LINK

    So far, so good. Everything I have tested works. The kernel did made it much faster than the stock one, also FPS uncapped. It feels like a mayor OS upgrade from the stock OTA 2.2. I will be testing everything all day long.
