    So I have the MyTouch. It is rooted with 2.1. I bought it rooted with beta version of 2.2 but something went wrong and all it did was boot up over. And over and over and then shut down. The gentlemen I bought it from was kind enough to help me roll it back to a stable version of software and I've had no major issues. So it's my understanding that the final version of 2.2 has been released. From cynogen site. I have the file and know how to do it ( I think). But I'm paranoid something will go haywire. Is it truly worth upgrading?? I know the google navigate with the gps and stuff is cool ( my neighbor has Droid which just did the otw update with verizon) but I still question if this would work on mine without actually having data plan which I don't. I also came across this site that talks about an overlay over the existing program but it talks about the nexus alone and I wasn't sure as the one I have is for the magic specifically

    Oh how I wish budney lived closer. Lol. If I'm going to fry my phone I would rather have a partner in crime LOL

    Anyway any positive feedback about rooting and upgrading definitely appreciated. I gotta find out what the big differences are between these.
    Thanks all!!!

    Do you really mean re-root or do you just want to flash a newer rom?

    In kjo's case, it sounds like flashing to a newer ROM on an already rooted phone that's had some issues with a previous rooted ROM.

    Just a guess, though...
