Hi all,

The official 2.3 cannot be downgraded or rooted, even with a goldcard you will get "main version is older", so i suggest you not te be stupid like me and install it!

DONT INSTALL OR YOU WILL BE SCREWED LOL

Do you need to get s-on and stock hboot etc before running the RUU. I need to unroot so would running the 2.3 update be my quick and easy way to get it back to stock. I'm vodafone uk and don't have a goldcard lol

yes it would flash back to stock and debrand I think - but you won't be able to downgrade/root/flash custom roms at the moment.

I think you are foolish - that ROM is a proof that official GB ROM can be rooted.
