Is this not the case? I feel like with the events of the past 48 hours and both Eugene and TeamWhiskey releasing fully working 2.2 ROMs, this little tidbit is being neglected. Furthermore, if the complete GPL-licensed leaked source code was released publically for all developers to use, I feel like such animosity that we've seen lately between developers would be mitigated.


I think the main point you're missing is that it hasn't been released publicly. I think the last line of the Op states that when it is released publicly publicly Tw will also release the source code.

I think you need to reflash a 2.1 kernel as nandroid doesnt revert kernels

Not to be a turd seeing as I am fairly new, but read a little first. YES, if you go back you have to flash a 2.1 kernel or you will soft brick your phone.

Reasonable question. I soft bricked my phone earlier today because I didn't ask/research it. In order for you to flash successfully you will need to flash a rom that has a kernel baked into it already. Grab any rom you want (that has a kernel bundled with it) as long as it is 2.1 and flash it over the top. Once you are booted, go ahead and use your nandroid to get you back the way you were.

Nandroid backups do not include a kernel, so you would be replacing your ROM with a 2.1 ROM and leaving a 2.2 kernel. Not a good combo.

Thanks for all the quick replies. I read all 52 pages of this thread and saw conflicting posts about what happens. Thanks dragoth12 for clearing it up, as I was hoping someone here had some first hand experience with this issues.


Thanks

Just for my own clarification, I am stock with Ryanz lag fix.... Do I still have to undo it? It said I can just flash over it, but flash the lag undo or the rom?

Also, I just made a nandroid backup, should it be saved anywhere special so it doesn't get overwritten?

Will flashing this ROM erase all my media/contacts/apps?

Thanks for all the help!!!!

The first time I went from 2.2 back to 2.1 I forgot to reflash a 2.1 kernel. When it rebooted it wouldn't boot past the vibrant boot up.

But hey, anything can happen. I have screwed myself plenty of times and reading these forums were my saving grace!
