    rooting/unrooting question

    I updated my phone last week to the new Froyo from Verizon via OTA. Since I now had Froyo, i decided to root my phone for the first time. My question is... will doing a factory reset take me back to a stock/unrooted phone? If i leave it rooted, will i be able to get OTA updates from Verizon in the future? I have not done any custom roms/kernels... actually i haven't done much since i rooted. Just wondering what i got myself into???

    Hello Mtandroid! Running the factory restore should leave you with root. I have recently run the factory reset option a number of times and still have root.

    As far as the OTA question, I believe you will not be able to get updates while rooted.

    You got yourself into a whole new world of possibilities! Nothing to be afraid of. If you wipe data/factory reset, you shouldn't lose root. Have you flashed ClockworkMod recovery yet, or did you just root the phone?

    You won't be able to get future OTA updates from Verizon (if there even are any) unless your phone is stock, unrooted. Not a big deal because, as you've seen from this update, the devs will put update out packages that give you the same stuff. Custom ROMs & kernels follow soon after.

    Thanks for the answers! Yes, i did flash Clockworkmod recovery (it was in the instructions on this forum for rooting your phone). I assume the dev's will release a full stock version of this Froyo at some point?

    It's been available since release as a flashable ZIP file. Amend (red CWM 2.5) only. You can get it here. The first file in the OP is complete stock. The second file is a debloated, de-Bing'd version. Download the first one if you ever need to return to ED01 stock.
